Can you believe it, it's now the 11th Daylily of the Day poll ....

Oops! I'm a little late getting this thread started. There won't be many cultivars listed this week until after the poll ends on Sunday!

Once again, 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.

List your 20 cultivars!

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. They are listed in alphabetical order:
https://garden.org/barn/potd/a...

Please check the Plant Database to make sure any you list has not been a featured daylily of the day cultivar before adding to your list. Thanks!

This poll will end on Sunday, May 6, 2018.

Thanks for helping choose more cultivars for evaluations!!! We appreciate your help and enthusiasm! Thank You very much! Thank You!

How does this thread work? Do you pick flowers that are blooming or just that you grow? I have some cultivars that nobody has and i know that different regions have different cultivars. Please explain to this newbie to forum. Oh what exactly is an evaluation. Thank You! and sorry to be do uneducated on this

@Diggerofdirt

1) Please check the Plant Database to make sure any you list has not been a featured daylily of the day cultivar before adding to your list.

2) Please pick cultivars that you 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.

3) 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. They are listed in alphabetical order:

That is almost a direct quote of Becky's post but maybe seeing it broken down it will be a little clearer.
An evaluation is basically just the comments you post about a cultivar: Nice things to include would be height, boom size, rust resistance, just anything saying why you like the plant. Or, it is too short, the blooms are down in the foliage, it takes forever to increase, etc. reasons you do not like the plant.
Edit: Forgot, no it does not have to be blooming, but it would be much better if you have at least seen it bloom in your garden previously. Of course you could comment on the foliage: Leaf streak, fans have dark green color, fans have beautiful shape etc.
If you look a daylily up in the daylily database this is an example of what you will see. It shows that this cultivar has already been featured, and that 44 other members own it. You would be able to go to a featured plant of the day at any time and add comments about it.

Larry - Thank you for jumping in to try to explain.

Roger & Karen - What the Daylily of the Day feature is .... we like to get evaluations of cultivars from around the country (and even world!). Different zones can be good or bad for a cultivar. The evaluations may help others to determine if it is a good cultivar for them to obtain for their garden under their particular growing conditions and zone.

Some evaluations are very short, some have much more info. I like to give a very detailed evaluation, but that is not necessarily the case for all evaluations by NGA members.

And I give 1 acorn per evaluation! Thumbs up
