Daylilies Continued~ The Lates

It has been two weeks since my last daylily update and the bloom season has definitely slowed to a crawl but I'm thankful for the late season ones that are still going since I have little else in bloom right now. We've had rain but not enough and the temps are still abnormally high. All of these pics were taken simce my last daylily post although just a few are still going~ one of which is...

Cripple Creek from Ned Roberts is my favorite late bloomer. Seen well from way across the garden, its form and saturated color are a welcome sight right now.

Star Asterisk by Stamile is an Early that's giving me another round of perky star shaped blooms.

Volcan Fuego from Brian Mahieu's Volcano series is another tall late hybrid that is well seen from afar.

So Lovely has just begun to bloom. Introduced by Lenington in 1969 it is listed as a Mid season bloomer but has been reliably on the late side for me here.

Peggy Jeffcoat Joiner 1995~ at least I believe I bought this as PJ. The color doesn't really match up to the pics on Tinker's but it's also listed as a Mid late so that part is right.

Pearl Harbor Carr 1997 is one of my few "edged" daylilies.

Pale Moon Windmill Crochet 1996 ~ this is its last bloom of the year:(

This beauty is an unnamed cross that I received as a bonus from Cynthia Tyrrell~ hemlady on Dave's Garden forum. Her Rebekah's Gothic Spider is partially responsible for leading me to the path of daylily fever.

Another seedling~ this is one of four that I purchased from Dan Bachman at Valley of the Daylilies. I have its parentage here somewhere...

Easy Ned Brown 1987~ is classified as VL(Very Late). This is the first year I've had blooms from him since I got him in 2007. He must like a colder climate than mine.

Hearts of Fire Stamile 1998~ if you love true red this one's for you.

Lemon Berry Frost Bell 2002~ classified as Mid. Has bloomed earlier for me in the past (probably tired of life in a 3 gal nursery pot:0)

Double Pompon Miles 1972

Autumn Wood Dougherty 1991~ a favorite that I need to move out of the Bog Sage surrounding it.

As I finish up this post on Monday morning July 12 I have in bloom: Galaxy Explosion, So Lovely, Cripple Creek, Twister Time, Lady Neva, Volcan Fuego, rebloom from Vintage Bordeaux and Cindy's seedling. Not too shabby for a Monday:)


  1. Absolutely fabulous! I love your spiders and all the Dougherty crosses are amazing. Gothic Spider has been calling my name at the nearby daylily farm, so far the song has been resisted. So sad to see them winding down, isn't it?

  2. Thank you! I'm glad you stopped by Frances. I've never seen Rebekah's Gothic Spider in person but fell instantly in love with Cindy's photo:)

  3. Beautiful daylilies. I really love your Dan Bachman seedling.

  4. Lovely photography! Thank you for sharing your garden with us.
