I love the little ones, too, Nikki. I have a lot of them in my garden, so I will post a few here and in subsequent posts.

Blue Alert, 18", 2.87", dip
I added this one early in the summer. I bought it as a blooming clump. It carried on blooming well for a long time. l love the colour and hope it does well here.
Thumb of 2017-11-19/touchofsky/e2af98
Thumb of 2017-11-19/touchofsky/376907

Bluebird Butterfly, 28", 4", tet
I bought this one at the same time as Blue Alert. It was also a blooming clump, but did not bloom as heavily as Blue Alert.

Thumb of 2017-11-19/touchofsky/020f56

Crystal Blue Persuasion, 18", 2.75", dip
Another that I bought the same day as the preceding pair. This one was a great performer the first summer in the garden. I hope it continues to do well.
Thumb of 2017-11-19/touchofsky/f1f01b
Thumb of 2017-11-19/touchofsky/5d6188

Siloam Tiny Tim, 14", 3", dip
Another new one this summer, purchased as a blooming clump. It is an extremely heavy bloomer. It is an older cultivar, but a lovely one, I think.
Thumb of 2017-11-19/touchofsky/97ecc5
Thumb of 2017-11-19/touchofsky/857cd8

Siloam Bye Lo, 16", 3.25", dip
Another small Siloam daylily that does extremely well here. I have had this cultivar for many years and it always performs well.
Thumb of 2017-11-19/touchofsky/4918de

Welchkins, 12", 2.6", dip
Another older cultiver, but a nice dark one with a darker eye. I can never get the colour right in a photo. Welchkins is much darker in reality.
Thumb of 2017-11-19/touchofsky/1e6f31

Velvet Shadows, 15", 2.75", dip
Another older cultivar, but a worthy one to have in the garden. Very floriferous.


Siloam Fine Art, 20", 3", dip
I have had this cultivar for many years, and it is a great performer, and the blooms always look perfect. This photo was taken in the early morning on a very overcast day.


Dragon Dreams, 25", 3", dip
A little Salter that does well here. I love this little one.
Thumb of 2017-11-19/touchofsky/b62287

I have lots more miniature and small daylilies and will post a few more later.

Lovely daylilies, Guys! Thanks for posting.

I have Velvet Shadows, really good plant here. Love all of the ones shown but that is an esp. nice photo of Siloam Fine Art. Welchkins is also one I have tried to get here but without success. Bluebird Butterfly is nice too, I haven't been able to find many small tets here so have had nothing to cross Courtney Anne with except big ones but I have TET In the Navy new this year and I think Blue Spring is quite small if I remember correctly. I think one of the european sellers has a couple of the Broadway minis but as space is a premium here I prefer to buy dips until I find more land.

Ina, I esp. like Siloam Bumble Bee and Siloam Rock Candy. Rock Candy looks very like one I have called Little Maggie. Thank you for posting them. Really nice daylilies. 😊

Another group of miniature and smalls.

Siloam David Kirchhoff, 16", 3.5", dip
This is one of the first blue eyed daylilies that I acquired, many years ago. It has done very well, and I have given away many clumps of this cultivar. This was registered in 1986, and I think it was ahead of its time.
Thumb of 2017-11-19/touchofsky/b79bc3


Christina Ann Pottmeyer, 18", 3.75", dip
This one doesn't seem to be widely grown, but I think it is such a pretty bicolour.
Thumb of 2017-11-19/touchofsky/8c643e


Siloam Ribbon Candy, 27", 3.75", dip
Another little Siloam. I am getting a fairly large collection of Siloams. They are such good performers in my climate and make great garden plants in the front or midway in perennial borders.


Changing Latitudes, 26", 4.25", dip
This is a pretty little daylily, but unfortunately, it did not bloom last year. I moved it in the spring from a shady location to a sunnier one, then we had a terrible late snowstorm, and it did not seem to like the move. I am hoping for better next year.


Little Missy, 16", 2.75", dip
I obtained this little one is a funny way. I needed change for a $20 bill on my way home, and didn't want to detour to an ATM. A Home Depot was one of my stops, and in order to get change, I picked up this little daylily for $4.99. It is a sweet little one and more fun than a stop at an ATM Hilarious!


Naomi Hope, 28" 4.33", tet
I haven't been able to capture the colour of this one accurately. It is more lavender than pink.



Unique Style, 21", 3.25", dip
I have only had this one for a few years. It is an unusual bicolour. Yellow petals, rose sepals and both have rose edges. Unfortunately, my photo was taken late on a very hot sunny day. The second photo shows the colour better (thank you Chalyse)



Clouds of Kisses, 26", 4.5", dip
This is such a pretty little one, with a pure pink eye. I have it along my walkway to the front door so that I can admire it when coming and going.
Thumb of 2017-11-19/touchofsky/7fc067

When My Sweetheart Returns, 23", 3.87", dip
I have this little one next to Clouds of Kisses along my walkway. They make a pretty pair, and even the names match Lovey dubby

I really like some of yours, Nikki, including Honky Tonk Blues, Star Child, Child of Fortune and Ledgewood Calico Blues. I added Star Child in September, and hope it does well for me. I have Baby Blues and love that little one and it has done nicely here. Little Fat Cat has such a nice shape. Thank you for the seeds you sent of that one. I hope it passes along that nice shape to its offspring Crossing Fingers!

Ina, I have a little one I purchased called Bumble Bee. It looks very similar to yours, but maybe not quite as yellow.

I also have Little Grapette. It is a great performer. I love Siloam Rock Candy.

I have good colour on Siloam Fine Art, especially if I can get photos taken early or with cloud cover. Otherwise, my camera washes the bloom out terribly, especially on sunny days. I have three photos posted of Siloam Fine Art, and they accurately show the colour range I have of this cultivar in my northern garden.

I love all your minis, Valerie! Christina anne Pottmeyer is esp. pretty. I had Changing Latitudes but it just wasn't happy here and rarely flowered. It has gone to a friend to try so at least if it flowers in a better location I can have some pollen or seeds.

I really like Siloam David Kirchoff too but I absolutely drool over Siloam Fine Art!

I think that there are two different daylilies with the name Bumble Bee, according to one of my daylily books, and it has caused some confusion. Both of the ones on here are very pretty.

I like Little Missy too, I think a seller in Holland might have that one but if I get it I would need to cull something else. I have also seen Cast A Spell and Little Crooner on a site too so I might have to make some hard decisions!☹

They are very similar Valerie, but Siloam Bumblebee is a very rich yellow. I love all of yours. I may need to increase my collection of the small ones.

Just out of interest Valerie, I noticed that the first diploids Lambertson introduced had Star Child as one of the parents. They are on 2011 intros (if I remember correctly) on the Art Gallery Gardens website.

I hope that Little Fat Cat passes on both her shape and her gorgeous diamond dusting, she flowers for a long time too, hope the seeds make something really nice for you.


Edited to add-just won Little Wild Thing x Star Child seeds on LA, hoping for something really nice in a few years!

Those are all gorgeous, Nikki Lovey dubby

Here are a few more of mine:
Nature's Purple Butterfly, 24", 4.5", dip
This one was a bonus plant with a spring order. It has turned out to be a favourite. It is unusual with the pinched sepals.
Thumb of 2017-11-19/touchofsky/0c18f8

Alpine Mist, 18", 3", dip
A spur of the moment purchase, made mainly because the plant was just smothered with bloom. It has proven to be a very heavy bloomer, and pretty, too. This is one I had a hard time getting an accurate photo of the colour.

Thumb of 2017-11-20/touchofsky/1e7511
Thumb of 2017-11-20/touchofsky/e87e89

Magic Elf, 14", 2.75", dip
A suggestion from a local daylily seller since she knows I love my minis. Magic Elf clumps up very quickly and blooms well, even with a bit of shade.
Thumb of 2017-11-19/touchofsky/07f3c2
Thumb of 2017-11-20/touchofsky/1be361

Pompeian Purple, 16", 3.25", dip
A little one that I don't see grown much. It is a nice rich purple, with a deeper eye. The blooms have a bit of texture to them.
Thumb of 2017-11-20/touchofsky/e3946e


Cosmopolitan, 18", 2.5", dip
A tiny one that is a bright pink and a reliable bloomer for me.


Siloam Virginia Henson, 18", 4", dip
Another nice little Siloam that makes a good front of the border plant.
Thumb of 2017-11-20/touchofsky/2489a6

Miniature King, 22", 3.5", dip
Even though it has miniature in its name, it is a small rather than a miniature at over 3". This was one of my first daylilies when I started this garden. It has a slightly deeper halo in the center.
Thumb of 2017-11-20/touchofsky/d2d7ba
Thumb of 2017-11-20/touchofsky/8284c2

Siloam Pink Glow, 16", 3.5", dip
Another pretty little pink Siloam daylily, again, it is cute along a pathway.


Pastilline, 14", 2.75", dip
This is a tiny plant. Mine is under 14" in my dry garden. It is a sweet little thing.
Thumb of 2017-11-20/touchofsky/44d2cf

I bought a few new minis and smalls in September and am looking forward to seeing them bloom. They are Blink of an Eye, Dixie Blues, Star Child, Midnight Smoke Rings, Westbourne Missing Sweet Pea Baby, Blue Flirt and George Jets On. I also added Siloam Art Work and Siloam Tee Tiny to my Siloam collection. I also have Siloam Peewee and Siloam Ury Winniford and quite a few other older minis and small ones.
Edited to add Siloam June Bug. Forgot that little Siloam.

I don't have many little ones. I am starting to appreciate these mini daylilies. I really enjoy seeing all the ones posted here. Thank you for starting this thread, Nikki. You and Valerie have so many nice ones. Just for clarification, do you consider anything under 4" as mini? I will take a look to see what I have that may qualify for a mini.

Miniatures are 3 inches and under. Over 3 inches, up to 4.5 inches are considered small.

Looking forward to seeing more minis and smalls.
