I have never seen this before and was wondering if anyone else has.

This clump is SPANISH SKETCH and the new fan that grew is variegated and I was wondering if there is some reason this may have happened. It didn't do that at all last season. There hasn't been any daylilies in this bed for awhile so it's not a leftover piece of another daylily.

Shrug!

I do see this ever now and then but have no idea what causes it.

Do you use anything like roundup? Have heard that causes streaking sometimes.

Margo (reed) has one that shows variegation sometimes. I think it is Rocky Horror. She sent it to me in variegation but it has not shown it since.

However, it is in her line somewhere else, I one of mine, AHA! had variegation when I divided it out. I'll try to find the pic. The plant stayed variegated so far for two years. Replanted this past fall so not sure if that will affect it for this year. They are puny as compared to the other divisions around them.


Here it is showing first year variegation. It is out of Creature of the Night and Skinwalker. C of N is Margo's.

I would love it if daylilies could have variegated foliage AND a pretty plant AND flower!

H. fulva variegata has variegated foliage but only if you keep dividing it and discarding the green foliage.

I did for many years. In fact planted in a new place 11 fans that were variegated so it looked like a nice clump.

Then got too busy. Now it all looks green.

I bet if I lifted the outside fans and replanted that I could get it started again.

But when would I have the time? LOL!

No roundup or other type chemical like that has been used around these daylilies, only fertilizer. It will be interesting to watch it and see what it does.

Might I suggest separating it from the mother plant? All those green things are much stronger and might overwhelm the variegated fan.
