Today is a wonderful day, for Lillian's John Falck and Lillian's Eye Did It arrived this morning in perfect condition. They are beautiful plants and guess what? Already they have been planted by my husband. We have had rain for the past two days, but the rain stopped about noon. Still cloudy and really a good time to plant--we expect these two to take off with no trouble. You know that when the flowers come they will be posted here. With April just around the corner, more daylilies should be arriving within the next couple of weeks, what an exciting time. May be a little early but Happy Easter to all, and know everybody else must be eagerly awaiting the start of the new bloom season. Smiling

I forgot to say that we were planning to go to the Mannings and pick up our plants, but unfortunately my bad sprained wrist turned out to be a broken wrist. I will be in rehab until the middle of April. Naturally, we are disappointed, but we are hoping to make the trip next year,

Here's hoping for a speedy recovery. Broken bones are no joke.

Hope you don't mind my posting, I received my plants from Fred too, last Thursday. Perfect condition and straight into the ground they went.

Isn't it great to get plants in the mail. Never a good time to have an injury, but I always resent anything that might prevent getting in the garden at this time of the year. Hope you recover quickly.

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! to all. Yes, the wrist really has kept me from doing things, especially now that gardening season is here. However, I have managed to pull some weeds today and I will continue on with that every day that weather permits. Also, last weekend, I did mow with my riding mower for an hour. My therapist says this is fine so long as I don't over do. Hopefully in another month complete recovery will be in sight. Just think, by then there may be scapes showing on some of the daylilies.

Avedon hope your wrist heals quickly so you can get back to gardening Group hug Group hug
I'm waiting with anticipation for my delivery from Fred, but hopefully later since weather wise I'm not ready yet. Getting daylilies in the mail is better than opening Christmas presents for me Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious!

Fred always sends the most beautiful plants! This is a gorgeous daylily and the name fits perfectly.

I hope your wrist heals soon Group hug It would be so difficult to be injured during gardening season...I wore a surgical boot for 8 months straight in 2016; I dug and planted daylilies with it and even climbed up a ladder to remove ivy from the side of our brick house...my husband was not amused when he caught sight of me Rolling on the floor laughing

I would be over the moon to visit the Manning's garden...they have some gorgeous daylilies Drooling

How nice to hear from everyone. @Fred, it's such a thrill to have L. Eye Did It here, and to find it is sold out. I was hoping it would be a success for you and Kathleen. We are going to try our best to get down there next year. I am even saving up my daylily money to be ready to buy some of your beautiful plants, and naturally the camera is ready for great pictures. @Ginny, you definitely will love your Manning plants, they are so good. @Regina, you did have something much worse than me, but you made me smile with the comments about your husband. The same thing is going on here, if I do the least little thing, hubby thinks I am going into remission. I told him some of the rehab stuff is more painful than the little gardening chores I have done here. @Stan, glad to hear from you, but I would like to know the names of your new Manning dayliles. @Larry, really appreciate your get-well wishes, looking forward to posts about the progression of your plants.
@A Lily Fan, thanks to you also. I have a daylily coming from Kentucky this year, the beautiful Dream Sequence--can hardly wait.

With the advent of warmer weather, I am now on the look-out for any scapes developing. The first ones will probably be Miss Victoria, Tribal Council, or the Stellas. Last year the winter was much warmer than this year, so I may be jumping the gun on the scape search, but it's fun.

@Avedon,
I have been looking everyday for scapes and am finally starting to see quite a few. Several of them have been NOIDs, but probably half a dozen or so named varieties. I already have the first scape on one of the Hemlady plants from seeds I planted last May.
Edited:
Eighteen named varieties are showing scapes now!

Hurray! Hurray! Ginny

Larry, have some scapes showing up here. One on Country Pride, always my first of the year. However, not this year. First this year is June Carter and one of my red Seedlings has one. Second year and really anxious to see it. It was a cross of Prairie Wildfire and Returns a Smile.

Hurray! Hurray! to everybody who now have scapes. Stan, L.Katelyn Joy is a pretty one, and L. Terah George has remarkable ruffling. Fred's picture of it on the data base is amazing.

Hope you can make it this year Avedon. I also have many scapes on new arrivals and seedlings, a lot are above the foliage. Some I shipped last week had scapes, not tall enough I had to cut them off, but that may change with this weeks shipments.

I agree LKJ is a beauty, as are all of Fred's introductions. Those heavy ruffles on LTG are what have me drooling.

I've been lucky enough to acquire 8 of Fred's CVs and several seedlings. Someday, I will add a few more. I'm always super anxious to see them bloom. I met @spunky1 at our local meeting and enjoyed talking with him and listening to his presentation that day. Perhaps, in the near future I'll get to visit the garden he calls home.

Ok, I've hijacked your thread long enough, but do enjoy his Daylily's so. Good luck with yours and look forward to their blooms.

@spunky1,
I would love for you to go into more detail about scape height and what determines when a scape is tall enough or not tall enough. I have often wondered why some scapes are left on plants when shipped and others are cut off. You used the wording "a lot are above the foliage", is that the determining factor? If a scape is up above the foliage does it have a much better chance or survival, or does it put less stress on the plant just because it is further developed as a scape and is closer to blooming? Any info or insight would be appreciated.

To all, don't ever think you are "hijacking" a thread of mine. All info posted here is of interest to me and I think could be of benefit to everyone who reads these posts. Bring it on!!! nodding
