We are now starting the 12th Daylily of the Day poll ....

I forgot to add the last few from the 11th poll recently. Surprised no one even noticed! Whistling Hilarious! Hilarious! But they will be featured this week!

Once again, Jon and I would like members to please pick cultivars that they OWN, that ALSO list several other owners (at "least" 2 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.

You will note that I have lowered the number of members that have a cultivar to "2". I know that there are many "new" cultivars that y'all have obtained, so I am hoping we get more current cultivars on your poll list to be featured and evaluated.

List your 20 (or less) 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 that any cultivars you list have not been a featured daylily of the day cultivar yet, before adding to your list. Thanks!

This poll will end next Sunday, July 8, 2018.

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

Don't forget you will get an acorn tip for each daylily of the day evaluation you post in both the current and past featured cultivars (your evaluations for any past cultivars must be annually - 1 year apart). Check the archives to see what cultivars you have and can share an evaluation for:

You can earn acorns for the Not-a-Raffle Raffle by posting your Daylily of the Day cultivar evaluations!

**bumping up the thread**

You guys don't seriously want to read 20 posts all about my flowers only, do you?
How am I gonna discover new drool-worthy daylilies, if you don't list some?
(Yeah, I know, none of really need that kind of help...)

If someone will post a list, I'll stop writing ridiculous posts Big Grin

@Seedfork . Larry, Becky wrote that the number of owners dropped down to 2 people instead of 3... That might open up your list a bit..

@ShakespearesGarden
I must have missed that, but yes that opens up quite a few for me. It seemed strange that two people(including me) are only showing to own so many that I checked.

I know of some folks who own a bunch, but don't have them in their plant lists... Those folks don't even have plant lists! My problem is that most of what I own has already been "dotd"...

Thank you Diana for bumping up the thread. And thanks to you and Larry for adding your lists. I don't know about others, but I check those evaluations if there is a Daylily of the Day listed for any cultivar I am considering. I find the evaluations VERY useful.

So my next post will be my list! Thumbs up

The last 3 are coming my way! Those 4 above are the only ones, that I have, which have not been featured. I (personally) have run out of cultivars to add to the DOTD list.

I think a lot of us are running out of ones that have not been featured, I do have more I could add if necessary being there are only 2 owners required. I need to cull some and add some new ones I think.

Thanks to those who have posted a list (big or small)!

I am bumping this thread up in hopes that others will also add their list!

You can earn acorns for the NARR and also help out other daylily lovers by posting your list and evaluations of the cultivars that you own. Evaluations good and bad are so helpful to many gardeners! I know that I personally appreciate the evaluations and read every one of them when I am considering a particular cultivar should it have been featured as a Daylily of the Day.

Thanks to all! Thank You! This poll will end by tomorrow evening, so please consider adding your list of cultivars!

You can earn 1 acorn for each evaluation. You must wait approximately 1 year to evaluate the same cultivar again. Your evaluations are valuable to members and very much appreciated! Thanks to all! Thank You!
