I have been adding away this Spring. I would like to hear what you guys have been adding or would like to add. I don't buy the latest intros often. I got one last Spring that didn't make it thru our harsh winter. NORDIC SOUL, but I did get some seeds out of it crossed with VIOLETS BECOME YOU. I am now looking for HALLOWEEN GREEN and EVERYONE LOVES EARNEST.

I have found that not all on my Wish List turn out to be hardy. I am replacing ELLIS POWELL this Fall. I rarely replace one after a loss, but I just loved that one!

We added the Petit 2013 butterfly collection except Blue Crush, didnt like it, but i think we will get it just so we have whole collection. Too many to name all. We would love to add Rose F., Woman at the well, Emerald Spring ,Uprising and that list gets to long too. I want way more than we have room for. Maryzell and the list goes on and on and on and on
Every home needs a daylily, and every daylily needs a home.

Teresa, what a shame about your Nordic Soul. I went and looked at it. It's so beautiful. Good thing you had the foresight to make a cross with it!

Karen, Rose F. Kennedy is the best flower around here! So strong and prolific. That's the one I'd definitely replace if need be.

touchofsky,
The awful "Snap" sound, and almost without looking you know it was the very bud you have been waiting on to bloom!

Is it worse when a loved one was helping in the garden and broke off buds instead of you breaking them? That was . part of my bloom season Grumbling

I had made several crosses one year and an elderly lady came to visit. I turned to see her breaking off every pod on one clump. I gasped and then asked her politely to stop. She thought it would help the plant to get rid of the seed pods Angry

Teresa, there is no way I would have been polite! I would have shrieked at the top of my lungs, just out of sheer terror!

Sharon, I found one place and it was $50.00 so I didn't order it. I'm sorry I can't recall the name of the seller though.

Thank you, Diana. I found someone on the Mahieu Conservancy Facebook group who said he has lots and was willing to sell me some.
