I love all the shades of pink in 'High Falootin' Floozie'. And that name is to die for Rolling on the floor laughing I also love to see daylilies where the scape is strong enough to hold up those blooms.

This picture of 'Gudrid' shows how the scapes are leaning. If it weren't for my seedlings in front of it, I think the blooms would have been a lot lower. Maybe I need to fertilize???

'Gudrid' (Mahieu, 2003) height 48 in.(122 cm), bloom 6.5 in.(17 cm), season M, Dormant, Diploid, Very Fragrant, 34 buds, 5 branches, Intense violet bitone with blue chevron watermark above creamy lemon to intense lime green. (Ethel Ruthrauff × (H. citrina × Lola Branham))

Vicki Gudrid is a leaner here also. I got a couple seedlings from it that I am keeping an eye on. Guidrid does bloom for a very long time.

Heman is much taller in my garden than it's registered 35". This year it was about 42".

Also, @Frankrichards16, Stargate Portal is always around 24". It has never grown taller than that in my garden.

Judy Davisson works with a lot of "skyscrapers". One I got from her last year bloomed for me this year---and it really is a Tower: Al's Peach Tower. It is registered at 59". I planted it in a pot on my deck that stands, at soil level, about 18" tall. I had to stand on my tippy toes and bend the flower to pollinate it. Form is very "old-fashioned", but it has a pleasing peachy color. I also got 'Smooth Talking Stranger' from Judy, and it also bloomed. It's an Al's Peach tower kid, not as tall, but very nice flower with smooth texture, heavy substance, and clean color. The first three pics are Al's Peach Tower, the next two are Smooth Talking Stranger.

I do not want to be one to spread "Fake News". I could have sworn that Smooth Talking Stranger had Al's Peach Tower as a parent, but I am wrong. I should really learn to check out my hunches before I let my fingers run wild. However, Smooth Talking Stranger is interesting in that many in it's pedigree are really short. Here it got to 35" this summer. It has great scapes that hold the flowers well without bending---a problem too many "tall" ones have. Sorry bout the mix-up. Enjoy the pics.

One of my neighbors here in Chicago land said he liked Al's Peach Tower more than Bermuda Coral. I have BC and I love it.


Bermuda Coral + tall and late.

This daylily has small, thin foliage, but it shoots up tall, thin scapes with tiny yellow flowers. I planted it last year and when it came up this year I was going to call GH Wild and request a refund for a misnamed plant. I could not imagine that the plant would be 5 feet tall. I waited, and it seems to be true to name. Only about 3 feet in the first year, should do better in the years to come.

Hemerocallis 'Steeple Jackie', 2018 photo, Common Name: Tall Yellow Daylily, Size: 60in., 3.5in. yellow self with yellow throat , Breeder: (Saxton, 1999), USDA Hardiness Zone 3, Michigan Bloom Month 7a, In Garden Bed U1 for 336 DAYS (Gilb). Planted in 2017.

Daylily Steeple Jackie - 60" L D F 3 ½"" bloom. Trumpet shaped light canary yellow flowers are produced in clusters of 3-4 on 7-way branched scapes carrying a whopping total of 55-100 buds a piece. The scapes rise high above the clump of slender, green leaves.

Tara the highest bud count on Bermuda Coral this season was twenty two. I mostly count the buds on Autumn King and Genesta this late in the season. Like Frank R, I have my eye on a few of the tall ones for the front garden remake. I will be moving some Genesta and Bitsy there also.

Great picture Mike, it really captures the color, substance and 'finish'. I'd encourage you to add your image to the database here.

It's interesting how some of the modern images we see are far better than the old registration photos on the AHS database. Not that long ago it was no simple task to get an accurate image in a digital format. Yesterday I was looking at the AHS image of Sanford Roberts' 'Green Dolphin Street', and shaking my head in bewilderment. I know it was the right flower, but wow, what a strange color. That one was the product of a 35mm slide scan and conversion. Times have really changed.

I love Steeple Jackie! I Have a moderate sized clump and just moved it so that it should be a bit more visible next year. Not sure that I had that high of a bud count and definitely not 5 feet tall! More closely to 3-3.5 feet!

I love tall daylilies, and hybridize for that characteristic. Saw a few comments about "Mascara Snake" leaning, it did that a bit here too, but it doesn't seem to pass on that flaw.

This is one of my introductions from it. "Cane Pole Fishing" Rinke K 2016
48 in.(122 cm), bloom 9 in.(23 cm), season MLa, Dormant, Diploid, 20 buds, 4 branches, Unusual Form Cascade, Purple with big bright yellow to chartreuse throat. (Breath of Blue Air × Mascara Snake)

Scapes are tall and never lean, wide spaced branching make a great display. Very Fertile. Blooms for a long time.

I had a seedling of "Above The Crowd x Rosy Lights" that I loved, but it went dormant very early so I discarded it. Wish I had not been so fast to eliminate it before seeing how it's kid's did. It gave me several keepers/registrations, and that trait was not passed on.

2018 "Lyman Joshua's Paint Brush" is that seedling crossed with "Pink Stripes. 41"

2017 "Smitten With The Mitten" is that seedling with "Monacan Trail", 44"

2017 "Ripples In A Pond" is that seedling with "Monacan Trail", 45"
