In my never-ending quest for early bloomers and late bloomers, in late 2016 I bought two early bloomers, Earlybird Cardinal and Clementella (three plants of each). Earlybird Cardinal was a serious disappointment – it produced only two flowers in first bloom, then two more in re-bloom. I was tempted to toss it but decided to give it another chance next season. Clementella, on the other hand, has been just the opposite: It bloomed EARLY (May 6th in zone 7b), bloomed prolifically in its main season, then rebloomed. So enthralled was I with this plant that I ordered three more, and potted them up until I could find a suitable place for the whole collection. Lo and behold, one of them bloomed within a couple weeks. About a month later, I spotted two new scapes on the one that had bloomed, and one on a second plant! With the weather turning cold I brought them inside and am treating them like seedlings - they are resting comfortably on heating pads and under grow lights. One of them bloomed two days ago, and there are about 10 more buds that should bloom. Clementella is one COOL daylily!

Okay Dave, I would like to see a picture of this little blooming machine, so it is up to you to be the first to post a picture of Clementella to the database:)

You get 2 acorns if you are the first to post a pic of a plant in the database. I hope you have taken pictures of it!

Dave I love early bloomers and rebloomers.
In regards to Earlybird Cardinal aka Endless Heart. For a evergreen, it is almost, always one of the first three to bloom in my garden. It is prolific and reblooms also.

I have four clumps. Even the one in mostly shade does well.
