Time for another poll, the 9th Daylily of the Day cultivars ....

Our next go around will begin soon, Jon and I would like members to please pick cultivars that they OWN, that ALSO list several other owners (at "least" 3 members that have the cultivar) as "have" in the database so that more members here on NGA can post their evaluations. The more members that own a plant, the better (to have numerous evaluations). Please also make sure that you post the correct name and spelling of the cultivars you list. You can list up to 20 cultivars that you actually own and are willing to post an evaluation for when the cultivar is featured as the Daylily of the Day.

The number of cultivars each person can list can be up to 20 for this poll!

And don't forget that you can post an evaluation at any time to any of the Daylily of the Day threads. An acorn will be awarded for each evaluation. You can post "annual" evaluations of any cultivars at least a year after your previous evaluation of that cultivar. (And earn another acorn tip!) Previous featured Daylilies of the Day cultivar threads can be found in this forum:
https://garden.org/barn/potd/a...

Let the next list of cultivars begin ..... (list up to 20 cultivars that have NOT been featured yet, that you and other members own.) Please check the Plant Database to make sure it's not been a featured daylily of the day cultivar before adding to your list. Thanks!

This poll will end on Saturday, October 28, 2017.

Your help and enthusiasm is appreciated to help us to evaluate more daylily cultivars! Thank You to all who love Daylilies and post their evaluations for cultivars that they have experienced growing! Your support of this effort is appreciated by many! Thank You!

Hi Becky,
Just a quick question about evaluations. If I have information to add, for example, if a cultivar was Daylily of the Day early in the season before blooming, and it bloomed well and there is something I want to add to my original evaluation, should I edit my original evaluation, or just add a new post at the end of the thread?

Valerie - either way is fine. You won’t get a second acorn unless it is a year later, but you will get a thumbs up. We always love to read more info about a cultivar we might be considering to purchase.

Thanks for your list! Good list. Thumbs up

I would love to see a new post made instead of an edit. I am likely to miss an edit from an previous post, but would be more likely to see any additional comments made in a new post. Just my opinion.

Bumping this thread up. More members are needed to add cultivars, otherwise we will be running out of daylilies to feature each day!

Ginny I booked marked daylily of the day archives for easier access. Three or more people have to have the plant. Tip: If I find one with two I just add my name to the have list to bump it to three I tip my hat to you. .
I keep two garden.org pages open to move back and forth. First look in the archives to see if it is already there, then search the other page to see how many people have it. Hurray!

Becky,

I wanted to start a list for this. But when I went to each of my listed daylilies, I'd click to see how many members own the cultivar, and I was not listed as owning it. I spot checked my list of over 200 and none of them showed that I own the plant. I checked, edit, to make sure I had the box checked as "HAVE" and in every case it was checked.

The only thing I recall that I have changed was I added a "daylily category", and placed each daylily in there. Could that be the reason?

I just looked at a few other plants that I do not have in a "category" and I was listed as a member that owns the plant. I then added that plant to a "category" and went back to check if I was still listed as owning the plant and I was no longer listed there.

What am I doing wrong.

If you need to move these questions to another "thread or form" please feel free to do that. I hate to mess up the intended request in your form.

Thanks!!
