    They are all beautiful / gittan

  3. Rosemont Firebrand is a stunner!

    I still love daylilies and yours are beautiful….gail

  5. Randy says:

    Oh, it’s so sad that they are nearing the end of their season. Our garden feels so empty with out the big bouquets of blooms.

  6. Lauren says:

    BEAUTIFUL! Aren’t daylillies so much fun!

  7. Titania says:

    Summer, heavenly Daylily time. Enjoyed seeing your beauties. All are lovely.

  8. Holly Chase says:

    Spectacular! But how are you keeping the deer away from yours? In New England deer treat themselves to daylilies like people tucking into an all-you-eat barbecue buffet.

    We don’t have that problem (with deer) on the other side of the globe, in the Eastern Mediterranean, where most of the deer (though not the bulbs!) have themselves been eaten!

    If you’d like to see natural landscapes filled with autumn-flowering bulb plants
    join us in Istanbul and SW Turkey this October:

    We don’t have deer where I live in a small southern town. Other critters of all kinds, but no deer, thank goodness.

    All of your Daylilies are so great. Would you believe my first one of the 23 I bought opened yesterday and I LIKE IT!!! It’s a keeper! Now I’m going to go through yours and see if I can find what it is called.

  10. Janet says:

    I am in awe of how many daylilies you have —with their names!!! My hat is off to you! I give up trying to pick a favorite.

  11. Joanne says:

    They are all so lovely.

  12. Is Heavenly Treasure one of Brother Reckamp’s daylilies? It sure looks like one of his. Such a beautiful daylily show you’ve had.~~Dee

    Hi Dee, thanks. Checking online, Heavenly Treasure is one of Brother Charles Reckamp’s, and used by hybridizers with good results. Sounds like I should give it a try. 🙂

  13. Barbara says:

    Frances, what a wonderful collection – the colours and photos – amazing. We’re just at the bud and scape stage here – Stella D’Oro & Eenie Weenie providing 2 little dots of yellow. Is Rosemount Firebrand as orangey red as it looks? I may have to go hunting…

    Hi Barbara, thanks. Rosemont Firebrand is the most orange of the reds given us by our good neighbors Mae and Mickey. It was such a large clump that it was used to fill my daughter Semi’s hillside and is now amazing there.

  14. Siria says:

    I love all of your daylilies. One is more beautiful than the next! I just can’t believe you know all of them by name. I have such a hard time unless I keep the tags tucked in the ground where they are planted, and sometimes they fade and get lost. I have given up on that!

    Hi Siria, thanks. Lists, charts and tags help me remember, it does take an effort and mistakes are made. I have found they seem to move around on the hill without taking their tags with them. 🙂

  15. Lola says:

    They are all very pretty but Heavenly Treasure caught my eye. I must try to get one of these for my garden.

  16. Catherine says:

    Night Beacon is very pretty, but then they all are. Are any of these re bloomers? Or is there such a thing? I know nothing about daylilies and thought I had read somewhere that some re bloom.

    Hi Catherine, thanks. Some are rebloomers, but none more so that Pardon Me, the first one to open and the last to quit.

  17. Good grief, that’s enough Daylilies to out Daylily the rest of us. Have many do you have? I have 4 and only 1 is in flower at the mo. 😉

    Hi YE, thanks. It sounds like you need some more daylilies in your garden. I have 70 or more, we are trying to get a current head count this year. 🙂

  18. Frances, LOL, I’m a bit old-fashioned when it comes to day lilies, liking the last one best because it looks most like the roadside tiger lilies, my favorite. (Hey you kids, get off my lawn! There, I’m a confirmed curmudgeon.)

    HA Monica, curmudgeon label firmly attached. Get off my lawn, like we care about the grass, that’s a good one! 🙂

  19. Rose says:

    I’m usually a pastel kind of person, but that last red and yellow one is really striking–“Firebrand” is certainly an apt name. I’ve been trying to pick a favorite (or two or three), but it’s impossible:)

    Hi Rose, no favorites need be picked this time. The reds are the spark plugs when viewing the daylilies as a whole group. That color is necessary. I am warming to reds with each passing year. 🙂
