I would love to see pictures of others daylilies. Are the oldfashioned orange considered daylilies? Mine are just starting to bloom.

I took this picture last year of my cat hunter with the old fashioned orange in the foreground. This plant came with the house. I am really happy with its hardiness.

I ended up splitting off five plants from this clump and planted them along the front of the (dog) fencing, since I think its kind of ugly. It used to be an old driveway so the soil was packed gravel and sand. I dug five holes and filled with topsoil and the plants. I am so pleased as two of the five are actually sending out blooms this year. I really like tough plants.

Other daylilies, Stella D'Oro, some dark gold ones (didn't write down the name) egad that I am waiting to bloom, maroon that I split off and is happily blooming, lemon yellow,

Thanks Wrennie! I love them because they are cheerful, have good height and are varied in color. They are hard to kill, and easy to split and move around. I like dependable flowers.

shock

Here's a dumb question.
Do daylilys bloom all summer or do they quit after a spell like a month or so??

Dodge the Stella D'Oro is a constant rebloomer which is why it is so popular. But just like other perennials most daylilies bloom at certain times ie Jun-July etc and that's it. That's why I try to find the early mid and late bloomers to I have a constant supply of them.

bop bop bop

Hooray..........hoorayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
I found the USA..
Now I know what I am doing......Ha ha
Raising asiatic lilys......Would you believe, the first one given to me about 4 years ago , I said I don't like lilys......My sister nearly fell over..
I took it and raised it and look at me today.
The one she gave me was scented......In another bed.. These arent.

They do bloom for a long spell , and not all at the same time.. The pastels are gorgous, I think..
I have others in another bed , not in bloom.......

And the daylilys are probably more gorgous colors.

Thanks for the comments.

I only have one Asiatic lily, I'll be adding more though. Right now I am slowly adding daylilies.

Dodge, I can save you seeds from the cranberry lily if you would like. It is too small to divide yet.

Beautiful lilies you've all got there.

All your lilies are soooo pretty!

Here is the first bloom on my daylily this year.
I should have divided it earlier in the season, but I was waiting for the pond gardens to be dug out - since Don is still working on the pond, that will still have to wait for a while...

This is the daylily I bought on Sunday, it seems very similar to yours Jiffymouse, it's called Pink Attraction:

[Linked Image]

I have been waiting impatiently for the blooming of this daylily! I bought it last year, forgot the name, but LOVED the brilliant golden color, it's my favorite. (shhh don't tell the other daylilies) [Linked Image]

nono

Yours is pink, Jiffy's was Peach......But both are excellent.

Now the yellow one looks like the type I raise......Asiatic some one said.
What is that all around the yellow one, is it Yarrow? Yellow? I have pink.

Looks very becoming with the lily..........Congrads in order.

I have to run back to the nursery and try to match it with one there. It's a daylily, different foliage.

Here's a photo showing the leaves better.
[Linked Image]

Yes, there is yarrow growing next to it. It's a very light color yellow. I just hacked out about 2/3 of it as it was flopping and looking sloppy. It looked like someone sat their hiney on the plant an flattened most of the blooms. It seems to grow back anyway and bloom again. I like yarrow for its toughness, I hate when it flops though.
