D daylilies 2020

This will be a short post for me, I only have two D daylilies. since that is the case for me I have something else to share with you today other than a quote. Here goes:


I spotted this car in a grocery store parking lot this summer. All those little animals are glued to the hood of this car. Everybody that walked by it grabbed their phone and took a picture. On close inspection, ( in my spare time, ha,ha) I noticed there are no dogs in the collection but at least 5 cats! That’s it! A crazy cat lady!

On to the daylilies

Destined to See had a great season.

Daring Deception was purchased locally at An end of season sale. The colors are a bit muddy, not sure if it will stay. It performs well in all day sun here.

    Yup. That's us. The crazy cat people. Doing strange things for reasons known only to ourselves....lol.............I have only one D but I like it a lot. A Stamile that actually has repeated for me:

    Dixie Sunrise with Storm Prince popping up front:

    Off to work so no time to post lilies now but had to comment! First, Destined to See is so pretty! What a great clump shot! And Maryl, every time you post Dixie Sunrise, I think I must get it-beautiful!!

    Now, as to that car!! I hope it is their “forever” car!! I cannot see that decoration adding a ton of resale value to it!!!

    Tile size and type choice help needed

    Q

    Comments (3)
    Wood look tile has been around for years and have gotten better and better looking. Actually, wood look tile has dramatically increased in sales in the last few years and still gaining momentum. Because it's pretty and practical for many lifestyles (pets and children) it's going stronger. However, real hardwood floors is usually the first option for most buyers. Actually, large format tile in main living spaces (like travertine) has lost the appeal it once had.

    Need help with "Piano Lounge"

    Q

    Comments (10)
    I love the window room but, if possible, I would instead consider putting the piano in the corner of the adjacent room next to the long half wall since that corner has more temperature control and visibility upon entering the space. In the window room without the piano, I would set up a square seating area in the middle of the room to take advantage of the views in every direction. If the piano has to go in the window room, I would not include a sectional as I think it would look too crowded. I see grand pianos as statement pieces that look best when they have plenty of space to breath. :)

    I hope the owner of that car doesn't plan to sell it any time soon. That petting zoo on the hood might cut their resale value!


    Dixie Sunrise is beautiful and I really like Destined to See also. I also like Dr Jules Michael Vinkman. We grow it but I didn't get a picture of it this past season


    Here are my D's.


    Dreamy Drawing is a Lambertson that does very well for us.


    Drums Along the Mohawk is an older one but I really like it.


    Daniel Howard Norris has a nice big flat bloom.


    Dave Chase Golden Glow is becoming one of our favorite oranges.


    Dawn of Aquarius produced some lovely blooms last season. It's in a terrible spot and will be moved this spring.


    Deadliest Catch produces some nice teeth. It is a fairly late bloomer in our garden.



    That's all for me.

    I don't have time to post right now either, but wanted to comment. I love Destined to see, I had a clump several years, then it disappeared. I think it was Debra who was so nice to give me a replacement. Darn raccoon dug it up, it survived but was not healthy after that. I think the drought took it out last fall, but maybe it will sho up again. Dixie Sunrise is beautiful, I had it once too. It did amazingly well, then died. Not sure why because it looked good then at the end of summer it started declining. Might get that one and try again. Celeste, Desert Icicle bloomed for me last summer, short, but that is fairly normal for new plants here. I love it! Your purples again get my attention.

  • Nancy 6b

    I must have spent a long time on my post, spotted your plants Nancy. I like every one of those! Especially like the flat open look of Daniel H. Norris, good shade of red too. Good to know that Dreamy Drawing is doing well for you. I am always drawn to them, but not many do well.

    Lol Sherry! I thought at first maybe your DH had laid out all his fishing lures.

    I had Daring Deception but it dwindled away in it's pot before I got to plant it.

    maryl they are both gorgeous.

    Celeste I have a fair bit of pink in my garden but I find too much is just too much except when it comes to Daylilies. Desiree is particularly lovely along with all the rest.

    hoosier-nan Dreamy Drawing & Daniel Howard Norris grabbed my attention.

    Destined to See - not at it's best, in the extreme hot, dry year we had.

    Sherry - How amazing that someone would glue plastic animals to the hood of a car! I wonder what that does to the resale value? Somehow I think it's some grandparent who wanted to entertain their grandchild.

    Destined to See looks great in all your gardens. I have that one. But since so many great pictures are already on that thread, I won't post mine.

    Since I don't have many D's either, I'm going to post multiple photos of my D intro.

    Maryl - Dixie Sunrise is a beauty! You know I can't resist those pinks!


    Celeste - Dr. Jules Michael Vinkman is nice. I have it too, although it's very short here. How's the height on yours?


    Hoosier Nan - I'm always drawn to Daniel Howard Norris. I saw a clump of it in Kingsport, TN and it went on my wishlist then. How does it perform for you?


    Nancy6B - It was me who gave you a replacement on Destined to See. I moved mine two years ago, and the grubs just about ate it to death. I hope it will rebound this year.

    I keep coming back to look at the car LOL. It is entertaining, I could see doing it just to make people smile. Sure would cut into resale though, unless there is some kind of glue that would come off that I don't know about.

    Double River Wye looks really good with that huge clump of Shastas. Debra, Dearest Valentine is so pretty, does it EVER have a less than perfect bloom? Dearest Mahogany is stunning.

    sherrygirl zone5 N il thanked Nancy 6b
  • shive

    Nancy - I used to say Dearest Valentine never had a bad bloom. But two seasons ago, the early blooms were quite splotchy when I was having an especially bad season of thrips. Last year just about every bloom was perfect, and some of the scapes had 18 buds, their highest ever. The only drawback on Dearest Valentine from my viewpoint is that it's not an early morning opener. The blooms don't open all the way flat until about 9:30 a.m. here.

    D is evidently not a popular letter!! Desert Icicle, Dawn of Aquarius, Daniel Howard Norris, and Dearest Valentine catch my eye on these. I have a few but only found photos of two. This did get me to thinking I did not see Dena Marie’s Sister bloom last year. Must check on her this spring!!


    Digital Dynamics was new last year but bloomed well.


    I posted this as a noid last spring but did some digging-both in dirt and though my paperwork and think I have identified this one as Darla Anita.

    Debra, Daniel Howard Norris does perform well for us. I don't count buds, but we have never been disappointed in it. We grow lots of Richard Norris daylilies and they all do well here.

    Dixie sunrise before it died.. rebloomed nicely too both years I had it


    Don Diego is really bright, it might have died too after bloom.


    Donna Jack supposed to be toothy. I see an occasional one, but no more than on other ruffled. Not sure I really like the color but it is such a great bloomer

    Dumortieri, not that much to my liking, but blooms a month before others even start

    I'm in a pink kind of mood today so everyone's pinks look good to me.............Also Nan: I like your picture of Drums Along the Mohawk. Reminds me of South Seas. Nice refreshing orange sherbert/melon color.....Debra: You know I like Dance Again with its yellow hue and ruffles..........Nancy: Sorry to hear about your Dixie Sunrise. Won't know until this spring if mine survived. I grew Don Diego at one time too. Form wasn't the best here. It always seemed to have its tongue sticking out at me so it went elsewhere............Maryl

    Maryl, I guess there is a reason Drums Along the Mohawk looks like South Seas. South Seas is one of its parents. It does have that luscious color of South Seas but in our garden is taller.

  • Maryl (Okla. Zone 7a)

    How interesting Nan. That sherberty orange color is one of my favorite colors during our hot summers; so cool and refreshing. South Seas does pretty well holding it's color if placed in late afternoon shade here. Others with a similar shade of orange have not. I'll keep my eye out for Drums Along the Mohawk as well as room to put it.........Maryl
