New Daylilies for 2011


By simbad


Well its that time of year again the daylilies have just about finished, a few still going strong, just been looking back at all my new ones that flowered for the first time this year, know a lot of you have already seen these pictures but for those who haven’t :-))

‘Applique’ love this one bought from botanicalady who’s a member on here, she has some fabulous daylilies, I want them all.

‘Lurch’ another of botanicalady’s her websites well worth a look or two :-)

I bought ‘Third Witch’ last year so had to complete the set with ‘Brown Witch’

And ‘Grey Witch’

‘Chris Salter’

‘Crintonic Shadowlands’,Love this one,its also Alexandras favourite ;-)

‘Dick Kitchingman’ another lovely spider.

‘Dragon Dreams’ very pretty little miniature flowered variety, but just look at that pattern.

‘Fire and Fog’ waited 2 years for this one to flower, not bad for a first flower, hopefully next year the edges will be more yellowy to give a ‘foggy’ effect.

‘Green Mystique’ for those who like the frilly edges.

‘Julie Newmar’ another thats taken 2 years to flower, worth the wait though.

‘Lady Betty Fretz’ and this one is still flowering now, thought I’d have to wait till next year for this one.

‘Lines of Splendor’ another of my favourite spidery ones.

‘Magical Swirls’ fabulous colour on this one picture doesn’t do it justice.

‘Mata Hari’ and this one is sending up more flower scapes even now.

‘Navajo Princess’

‘Sink into your Eyes’ another for those lovers of the frilly edges.

‘Solid Geometry’ really starting to like the doubles, they often don’t double straight away but this one did.

‘Steely Blue Eyes’ another thats taken a couple of years to flower but wow what a beauty.

‘Watchyl Digital Scream’ another of the botanicalady’s beauties, huge flower on this one 14inch!!!! across.
Well hope you enjoyed the pictures and roll on next summer as of course I’ve bought more this year, while there’s still grass to dig up I’ll keep adding to my collection :-))

All fabulous Simbad....I love them all....I agree with Lulu 'applique love' is devine, 'Cris Salter', 'Crintonic Shadowlands' is another stunner and 'Green Mystique'....fab

Thankyou :-))
Must admit 'Applique' is my favourite new one Lulu, 10inch flowers too, followed very closely by 'Lurch' but do love them all.
Just give them a sunny spot Paul where they're not crowded by other plants, don't plant too deeply just level with where the leaves join the rootstock(too deep can stop them flowering) and give a good feed of fertilizer in spring, I give mine seaweed fertilizer,also divide every 2-3 years as if the clumps get too big they tend to stop flowering, soil type doesn't matter they'll grow in any, go on have another go :-)))
Good choices there Motinot:-) 'Crintonic Shadowlands'
had a couple of even better flowers with a blue/grey halo round the edge of the yellow.

They are all lovely. Such wonderful colours and shape variation. I couldn't choose a favourite but I love Grey witch and Applique and also Solid geometry. I wanted to get some more so I'll have to have a look.
