R daylilies 2020

Today is the day to show us your R daylilies. Today’s quote: “ I think it’s clear that companies making medicine have no idea what fruit tastes like.”


Reindeer Antlers and Red Eyed Fantasy we’re both added in Fall of 2018 and had a few blooms this past spring. I have only one photo of each and love them both already.



Ruby Spider is such a good performer.

Real Wind, such great color on this oldie, also difficult to get the true shade, orange sherbet.

Red Volunteer growing in way too much shade.


I added Red Hot Returns two full seasons ago hoping to extend the blooms here. It hasn’t rebloomed for me yet. One promising trait is that it is taller than other Returns daylilies I have had. I Will probably keep this one and eliminate Ruby Stella.

    I literally laughed out loud and woke up my cat with your saying about medicine. How funny......What a great picture of Reindeer Antlers. I grow it but haven't gotten as good a picture of it as you have. Another worthy Hensley daylily. I grew Real Wind way back when. It was not colorfast here, but early in the AM it was sooo pretty. Great picture of Red Volunteer with the Hostas.............I have a couple I can post. One is new, one has been with me forever.


    This is an older picture because I've had it so long I have about quit taking new pictures of it every year as it always looks the same. Very stable and reliable. A profuse bloomer early in the season:

    ROSE MASTERPIECE:



    And a new one for me last year. A small side trip into UF's which I generally don't care for in my garden. Loved this one though:

    Rudy:

    Let us know how Rudy continues to do for you. There are a lot of Rose Kennedy kids that have the same slow growth rate as the parent, so it would be wonderful if this were an exception.


    I still have Real Wind. As Sherry notes, the color draws attention. Plant habit leaves a lot to be desired. Red Eyed Fantasy didn't do well here, but I see some Northern pictures of it.

    Need help to choose arm chairs for my entrance

    Q

    Yes,do go for a black and white canvas picture or a nice black framed portrait (black and white) that would go great with the white chairs that have pieces of black shapes on them and one of the cushions.I can see the chairs have some circle shapes on them, you can probably add a large black framed round mirror to the background of the two chairs instead of pictures. And with that mirror, add a nice small mirrored table in between the two chairs. If ur going with framed/canvas picture stick with black furniture for that space, for example a nice small black MODERN table and a small light on it.....hope this helps. Remember to finish off with a nice rug as well, and stick with the colors you have going on. The pictures you posted of the chairs are not as good quality and I am not sure what color are the chairs exactly ( off white, white, ivory etc.) And if u find a nice plane simple rug (simple shapes..maybe circles would look best or just lines of the particular colors u have going on) would look great. Good luck!

    Paola, you need to provide more information about your garden space if you hope to get any reasonable or useful answers from the Houzz responses. From what I've read Droplet & Daphne have given you the best advise so far. Before you do anything, however, you have to cut the bed, get the size and shape right for the shape of your house then think about the fun part, the plantings. Use a garden hose or spray paint to give yourself some noncommital ideas. Your lovely home seems very angular so you may want to draw a more organic or ameboid bed to soften the lines of the house. Then consider the following when choosing plantings. You know your growing zone Soil type acid or alkaline dry, damp, soil shade what time of day wind tolerance Are you removing the small stone retaining wall or removing it? My suggestion enlarge the area. From there you can't go wrong with native plants. If you're fortunate enough to have a small landscape business (not a big box store) near by many of them offer consultation services, for a price, without your having to commit to buying their plants, or a full service contract or instillation etc. Asking for local help is your best bet and it helps the local economy. Good luck, makes me want to tare up my front beds and start from scratch. A local landscaper will know your soil best, know what plant stock has thrived in the area, what has taken a hit because of disease or weather trends. If you have access to a horticultural hotline sometimes offered by colleges with horticultural programs, botanical gardens or arboretums, they can be very useful as well. What you'll spend on a consultation you'll save on back breaking work that doesn't pay off, failed plantings due to poor siting choices, bad soil conditions for the plant etc.

    Mantis, so good to see you posting, missed you and your posts a lot. I totally understand the frustration of posting pictures, although it seems a bit easier lately if you just post 5 or 6 at a time.. That may be because there is less going on in the forums though. Editing to add, I usually add 5 or 6 to a post, then edit to add enough to reach 10 pics. I added 5, then got carried away and got 10 more on it with no problem at all. What the... I will add a couple more I was not going to post and see if it works

    I got Reindeer Antlers last fall because I realized I wanted more red, and admired the photos here. Red Eyed Fantasy has done pretty well here, multiplied fast and blooms well. Maryl, I have always admired Rose Masterpiece when I see it, but I LOVE Rudy. I also look forward to see how well it does for you.

    Rapid Eye Movement does not have as many buds as I would like, but really stands out


    Reminds Me of Fireworks, I have several large spidery types, would like to get rid of one or 2, but they all bloom REALLY well for me, so I doubt they are going anywhere.


    Rev It Up had its first bloom year and did very well, multiplied and bloomed amazingly well for 1st year. I imagine it will be wonderful this year, especially if I pull those weeds out from around it


    Robert Lee Batt, I like the blooms but seems to just be so-so. Maybe I should try moving it


    Rock Solid is probably my best blooming plant, not for stupendous bud count, but its instant rebloom. Most fans have 3 scapes at the same time, others 2, with the only ones with 1 fan are noticably more immature blooms.


    Romanian Rendevous, spelling looks wrong on that


    Rose Electra


    Round and Round We Go has such an interesting color, but not many buds. It will probably leave if it does not improve


    Royal Elk used to be such a good plant, but for some reason does not bloom as well now.


    Ruby Shadows on the other hand used to have just barely average blooms. I moved it around the corner and it bloomed a lot better last summer. Hope that continues


    Ruffled Apricot may have gotten taken out by that raccoon, it was down to 1 fan after the attack, and after the drought I did not see it


    Ruffles Have Ripples has a lot of buds, but some do not open well


    Rue Madelaine


    Ruffled Candy


    Russian Easter


    Royal Occasion


    Raspberry Pixie, not the correct name of it, although I have had 2 people assure me it looks just like theirs. It is probably about the right size but close to 30" tall. I don't think it is supposed to be this dusky, almost freckled look, but I like it. Heavy bloomer and quite cute


    Red Eyed Fantasy

  • shive

    Rainbow Maker multiplied well once in the ground.


    Reckless Girls was short last year, but the blooms were beautiful.


    Regal Finale always puts on a show in the late season.


    Rouen Cathedral - another late that performs well.


    Regina Sitko is another good multiplier.


    Razor Sharp always has such wonderful edges!


    Rings of Triton - slow multiplier and short in its first bloom season.


    Rowena Yaeger gave a wonderful performance last year - several scapes with higher than registered bud counts.



    Roman Cohort

    Like Reckless Girls, and really love your Regina Sitko. Got it last fall, that dratted raccoon got into it, hopefully it makes it. I hate killing critters, but she is bringing her children now, and I saw the 3 of them last week. Grrr.....

  • shive

    Nancy - The raccoons are likely digging your daylilies up because they smell grubs on them. The grubs are likely doing more damage than the raccoons in warmer temps. I love the photo of your cat with Rock Solid. I got Rock Solid as a bonus years ago and gave it away because I had run out of planting room. I never saw multiple scapes in the small pot where I had it planted. I do remember it was hard dormant. Last year I added it's descendant Mountain Wildflower because it was so round, had good stats, and was supposed to be a dormant. Darn if that thing isn't acting like an evergreen here.


    Sherry - Reindeer Antlers is such a velvety looking red, and Red Hot Returns has that white edge I like.


    Maryl - I'm always drawn to photos of Rudy, and Rose Masterpiece is always so pretty!


    Debra

    sherrygirl zone5 N il thanked shive
  • sherrygirl zone5 N il

    Maryl, Rudy looks wonderful! What a nice choice, hope it continues to do well.

    Nancy, Rev It Up and Rock Solid are my favorites of yours today, hope Rev It Up keeps doing well. We will have to compare notes on Red a Eyed Fantasy.

    Debra, Reckless Girls looks wonderful to me, hope it gets taller for you this season. I didn’t remember that Rouen Cathedral was a late, it’s so pretty, it would be nice if I could find a place to add it here.

    WOW! So many very exceptional ones, too numerous to mention them all. But the two that really got my attention were RUDY and Nancy's orange kitty!

    Good to hear from you, mantis! Posting is much easier now so I hope when your daylilies are in bloom you'll give it another try. You've been missed.

    I'm afraid I have a lot of 'R's.

    We added Reindeer Antlers last fall. I can't wait to see it bloom. Regina Sitko and Roman Cohort are two of my favorites today. I also like Razor Sharp and Rudy. We grow Rock Solid and it did really well until I put too many pods on it one season and it still hasn't recovered.


    Here are our R's.


    Raggedy Man is a great grower that is a welcomed late bloomer in our garden. It's fertile too. We have some nice seedlings out of it.



    The color is a bit off here. Rajah is a more orange than this. I thought this made a nice effect. The scapes are arched over another plant (you can see Sunset's tag at the bottom of the photo) with all these flowers.


    Ram has such huge blooms.


    Ramming Speed is not a favorite of mine. It's a great grower, and I like bicolors, but the colors are harsh. It may not stay in the garden.


    Randall the Runner is tender and overwinters in the greenhouse.


    Bob like Red Carpet Moment, but it's not a favorite of mine.


    Red Eye Express has really intense colors in our early season cool weather last year.


    Red Eyed Queen is a southern that is doing well for us. I like the large flat flowers it gives.


    More to come . . .

  • hoosier_nan (IN z5b/6a)

    Red Hot Miracle is an interesting double.


    Redneck Riviera is a nice orange, but it will leave the garden this spring. We just have too many similar daylilies.


    Remembered Kisses is a favorite of mine.


    Ron Valente has taken its time getting going.


    Royal Extravaganza so far has done well. This bloom is showing some unfortunate splotchiness on the sepals.


    That's all for me.

    Ok I think I have it sorted out now . Here are some of the R's I grow . I have only a very few images to share of 79 R's in my gardens . Not sure why I have so few images but I will have to remedy that this summer .


    Regency Heights is one of my fav's I searched high and low for this one about 5 years ago .



    Royal Palace Prince is just an ok daylily in my book.


    Love Rainbow Maker . I will be spiltting it this spring and planting in several places because I love the look of it . So it will be a few years I guess before it becomes clump size again .

    Sherry, Ring the Bells of Heaven opens well the majority of the time. But it does have some issues opening well if we get a freakish cool night in summer or if there's too much dew. That's why I try to stay away from too many ruffly edged ones but some are just too pretty to resist!

    Heather - I question the veracity of that cascade registration on Rainbow Maker. I've had it for four years and have never once seen it cascade. Does it ever cascade for you? I've noticed many daylilies in the last five years have been registered as cascade that don't really satisfy the AHA definition. Bob Schwarz, the father of the Unusual Form and head of the committee who wrote the unusual form definitions said a cascade should have the petals curling back almost to the bottom of the daylily.
