Purchased 6 daylilies from Ogden Station Daylilies in Michigan yesterday. Set a time to tour the farm, selected the plants I wanted, they dug and washed.

Hemerocallis 'Sears Tower', Hemerocallis 'Panic in Detroit', Hemerocallis 'Getting Airborn', Hemerocallis 'Towering Robin Hood', Hemerocallis 'High Falootin Floozy', Hemerocallis 'Stargate Portal'

Planted today. Pleased with the size of the clumps. I did split some of them.

That 'Stargate Portal' clump looks huge! Did you count the fans in that. I would have divided it also.

You will love 'Sears Tower'. It blooms mid-late here, when bloom is winding down in the garden (at least, in my garden). I am always happy to see it start blooming.
It's daylily season!

I have ordered from Ogden Station in 2015. All is well with the plants I got from there. I grow Sears Tower and Stargate Portal. Nice plants.

I'm looking forward to how they do for you. I didn't always like the tall daylilies so much, but find myself liking them more every year. I think at first I seemed to have more small minis & the tall ones look very odd beside those. I've grown away from the minis & gotten rid of most of mine. The extra tall ones don't look so odd now.

While I think that there is a role and a place for small flowered daylilies in almost any size garden (not so much true for the minis, imho), I have always preferred the large flowered daylilies, the larger the flower, the better. Over time, this has evolved to include some UFs and "the taller the scape, the better", regardless of the flower form.

I don't think that I'd want only 4 ft+ tall UFs in my daylily garden (anymore than I'd want only yellow daylilies in my garden, although I do love the yellows and think that every garden needs at least a few) but I do love the ones that I have, and will probably always grow some. (But it is also just as true that I love my small flowered daylilies, and will probably always grow a few of those, too!)

Enjoy your "talls", Frank - and I'm glad to see that others like them, too! Thumbs up
It's daylily season!
