I don't have the latest varieties but I would like to add that these were outstanding in my garden this past summer. Please share what did well for you.

We had a top ten thread and I didn't include this unregistered one I got from @Deryll.
It's a Heavenly Angel Ice baby, pod and pollen fertile...

Very pretty seedling. I like to add whites in the garden to contrast with the vivid ones.

Pea Green With Envy also did very well this summer.

Two daylilies that just thrilled me so much this year were RAINBOW BLUES and SHAKESPEAR'S RED. Beautiful, good foliage and great blooms!

Magic Elf was a marvellous addition to the garden last spring. This little mini clumped up quickly and bloomed profusely. It was very pretty, too.



Another one that was gorgeous this year was Ethereal Light. It made such a pretty picture blooming with Phlox paniculata 'Blue Paradise'.


Mystical Rainbow also completed a very pretty garden picture, blooming along with Astilbe 'Vision in Pink'.

Thanks for sharing everyone! My new mini for the year was Bumble Bee Glee. I purchased it last Spring while in FL visiting my daughter. I crossed over to the Atlantic side, but was so glad to actually visit Floyd Cove and Trimmers.

It was too dry and I didn't water enough but I know Wine With Everything really stunned me last summer. Maybe others will come to me.

Mike, I grow Orchid Corsage bu,t it was only the 2nd season. I cannot wait to see it in a clump. I also have L. Stardust, it is a beauty. I shared with my BF.

Wine With Everything looks great. I need to do some research on that one Rolling my eyes.

Here were my top 5 performers in no order (because it could change, depending on the day):

IMPERIAL DECREE: Nice strong purple that held up in the sun. It is pod and pollen fertile. Strong branching and many buds.

Thumb of 2018-01-15/Bedmaker/d4a9f9

JERRY HYATT: Great plant that bloomed over a long period. Also held up well in the sun and is pod and pollen fertile.

Thumb of 2018-01-15/Bedmaker/a13192
Thumb of 2018-01-15/Bedmaker/80beef

ARROGANT BASTARD: I can never say enough good things about this plant. Fertile both ways, tall, bud builder and blooms until frost with more buds forming.



Thumb of 2018-01-15/Bedmaker/94e245


NINE INCH NAILS: Love the name and the flower. I tend to like the cascading ufos/spiders, but this one really catches my eye. Scape is ram rod straight with many branches. The throat appears to be green appliqu├ęd. I love it as a single bloom opened or when multiple blooms are open. My one spider friend always laughs at me when I describe certain spiders as looking as if they threw the bloom against the wall with the petals all going in different directions and no uniformity. This one maintains uniformity.

WILD CHERRY WINE: Love this pink from Bud Bennett.

Ginny I want AB for the bud building to frost in David's Z:5 garden. Beautiful flower also.
Teresa Orchid Corsage is stunning in a clump.
