Daylily Cultivar Listing 2017

Click any cultivar name to be taken to its information page in a separate browser window. To return to this page, simply close that window.

Welcome! This is my sale listing for 2017 of cultivars introduced by myself and other daylily breeders. I have grown all of these for several years in my own garden, some for decades. All of these are plants that have done well in my zone 6 Kentucky garden, flourishing with minimal care when grown in my average to poor garden soil (clay and sand mix tending to be acidic at about 6.5 pH). In addition, many have also been good breeders in my own program and many have shown good to high resistance to rust in my garden. Each of these are in limited supply for this year.

To learn more about each cultivar and to see pictures, click on the name of the cultivar to be taken to its information page in a new browser window. To return to this page, simply close that window. There you will find my experience of growing each of these cultivars, its breeding value (if I have bred from them) in my program and my personal experience of their rust resistance during my rust screening observations from 2012 through 2016*. As well, I will try to give climate zone suggestions based on my experience of each cultivar in my zone 6 garden, as well as anecdotal information I have received from growers in other zones where I have that information. You will notice that many of them have shown good rust resistance for me. That is not because everything I have grown has had good resistance - quite the opposite, actually - but because I have selected to keep and grow those with the best rust resistance over the period of my testing program. Those cultivars that I offer that have lower resistance to rust are offered because they may have other exceptional qualities and/or they show good tolerance to rust (which is different than resistance).

All offerings below are for double fan divisions. Each division sold of any of these listings will be at least a double fan except where noted, and are divided from a larger clump at the time of shipping. Some roots may get cut in the process and some crowns may be split if the cultivar does not grow separate fans but is connected to a single crown regardless of the number of fans. If possible, divisions may be more than double fans. Our grow-out clumps for resale are given standard care, watered when in drought conditions and fertilized at least twice each year with a high nitrogen fertilizer. In my real-world garden, without high input care, the fans will be of average size, not pumped up on huge amounts of water and fertilize, as these will reduce in size when planted in a garden without intensive input conditions. Fan sizes vary between cultivars, with some tetraploids being naturally large even in average conditions while some dip spiders or mini cultivars will have quite small fans even when they are fully mature. All divisions shipped will be adult size fans for that cultivar. I will make every effort to send you a division I would be happy to receive.

*(As of 2016 I have concluded my rust resistance screening program. I have had to bring in new plants from the deep south every spring in order to even test for rust, as rust does not survive my winters. I do not use greenhouses, and all of my plants are grown outdoors in regular soil, so the likelihood of having any rust without bringing it in is very small. However, if you have never had rust or absolutely cannot have rust ever, then you should take into consideration that I have had rust in my garden in past years. If there is no rust in my gardens in 2017 (and there shouldn’t be) and I continue to not bring in new plants, then I will consider my garden rust-free from that point forward.)
