Which ones bloom a long time for you? Are there any E-L? Paper Butterfly and Chance Encounter are in one bed together, and Paper Butterfly was my earliest bloomer, and it is still blooming. Chance Encounter started a little later, but it is still going.

Scottish Fantasy, Puccini and Mighty Chestnut all are long heavy bloomers for me. Mighty Chestnut is just now about done, Scottish Fantasy has about another week or so and Puccini was done last week.

I like this question because I am trying to add longer blooming daylilies. I'm going to have to check out Paper Butterfly. Most of my daylilies only bloom 3-4 weeks, except the ones that bloom a while, rest a while, and come back and rebloom, like Stella, Black-eyed Stella, Happy Returns, Stella's Ruffled Fingers, etc. Here are some of my blooms that have averages around five weeks for the last three years or so for me. A lot of them are "bud builders".

Final Touch (7.1 weeks)
Uncle Bryan (6.2 weeks)
Pardon Me (6.1 weeks)
Howdy (6.0 weeks)
Mascara Snake (5.7 weeks)
Resident Alien (5.4 weeks)
Crazy Awesome (5.4 weeks)
Frans Hals (5.2 weeks)
Foothills Fantasy (4.9 weeks)
Late Report (4.9 weeks)
Dyna Girl (4.8 weeks)
Sunny Intervals (4.5 weeks)

Depends on the year. Some years a few plants will bloom their heart out and/or bud build. The next year they go back to normal. So much depends on weather for me that I don't bother trying to figure out which is best anymore.

This year I had some unexpected amazing bloomers but also experienced the most bud drop that I've ever seen. So normally long bloomers were cut short and normally short bloomers threw up early scapes (prebloom?) so they had extended bloom periods.

Much to my surprise, I've had continuous bloom on my three two year old Helicopters. I've left all old scapes, and hopefully you can see the new ones. Been blooming since 6/6. I'm amazed!

I think my daylilies that bloom the longest are:
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Bang Bang')
and
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'El Desperado')

I'm sure I have more but I don't keep records of their bloom time. But the two above came to mind right away.

Blue jay tapestry bloomed it's last bloom today. That means it had continues blooms for over 2 months. Too bad I can't get it to set a pod Sticking tongue out

My longest blooming ones this year were Dancing Flamingo and Victorian Garden Heaven's Applause. Both bloomed for seven weeks. Final Touch has bloomed for six weeks, and is still building buds.

Blue Jay Tapestry was a real dud for me. It had very few buds and bloomed only two weeks.

Wow Deb that's surprising, I hate it didn't do well for you. That sounds like what facemaker did to me.

Lambertson's has only a few blooms in my zone 6 garden. They don't add extra fans well for me.
Sad because I LOVE my purples!

Blue-eyed Butterfly is the only Lambertson intro I own that has done well for me. I only have a few but Blue-eyed Butterfly increases well and blooms fairly well also. Peggy Imrie did good when it was first planted but is in a slow decline in my garden and didn't even bloom this year. Tooth Talk is also not looking good either, both are now down to 1 little fan each. Grumbling
