|I don't have any of Bennett's daylilies, one of these days I'll get Wild Cherry Wine, that one always catches my eye. Lots of pretty ones. Thank you for posting them, always nice to see a grower's plants all together in someone's garden. He did a good job.|

|David, would you reiterate which ones are your favorites? As I recall, they are Jubilee Ball, Runaway Romance, Cheating Heart, Sitting Cool, and Beauty in Motion.|

Just got from the Outer Banks this past Saturday so I have just got around to checking the computer. My favorite Bennett's are as follows:
JUBILEE BALL - one of his tallest intros
RUNAWAY ROMANCE - Great color
SITTING COOL - A feminine looking blooms
WILD CHERRY WINE - Love it. I take too many pictures of this one.
FASHIONAIRE - I love the color and the white midrib
CHEATING HEART is also a very nice old one.
BEAUTY IN MOTION is a big ruffled pink that opens early
KIWI MAGIC very distinct and a consistent performer
TACTICAL CAT - Not a pink one. I love the darker edge on the eye and another consistent performer
SHOWTIME MAGIC - More on the melon tangerine side of things. It is just gorgeous.
Ask me another day and the order might be different. These are my top 10 Bennett intros this year.

|I will just chime in with the one Bennett grown here, and this is a first full year plant:
Kiwi Magic--this picture taken on Labor Day
Kiwi Magic--this is the whole plant with multiple blooms. This photo taken Aug, 31. Today is Sept. 17 and there is one bloom with the possibililty of a couple more. We have been impressed with the blooms and the rebloom.
