We will be posting daylilies Sa through Sn today. The quote of the day : “ If it’s free, it’s advice; If you pay for it, it’s counseling; if you can use either one, it’s a miracle.”



Sea Dragon is one of my favoriteS. It catches my eye immediately in the garden and has been a very good performer. It’s a late midseason bloomer here.


Sailor Sky is a late season bloomer with great color. This photo is the true color here. It’s done very well in its two full seasons here.

I have one more that fits in this category that didn't bloom last season, Silky Skies. I hope it comes back next season, it’s a Lambertson. Last season was the first time I had daylilies that didn’t bloom, I had at least six. Maybe I had been lucky to this point ???

    Let's see if I can do this right this time ! LOL !

    New to the gardens is Petit's Send me a Rainbow


    Here is Screamsicle


    Second Glance is such a soft apricot color and a lovely 6 inch bloom which always looks so much bigger because the bloom glows

    Another pretty apricot colored bloom .......Scatterbrain is a double

    Simmering Elephants is one of my odd color daylilies

    Well, must not be my day to post, let me try again

    Sea Dragon looks great, Sherry. I can never get the color right on Sailor Sky here, the light seems to reflect too much off it, combined with my old camera. Send Me a Rainbow is really pretty Heather, and Simmering Elephants is an unusual name for an unusual daylily, I like it.Sailing at Dawn is a good bloomer, but just does not seem to grow. It adds fans, then they disappear in late summer.



    Must have been that photo, I tried twice on a better picture of Sailing at Dawn

    Sailor Sky is a great plant, so many blooms. this was its 2nd year, but I moved it last year. It has multiplied a lot, and even rebloomed a bit last summer. It is not listed as a rebloomer. I am not big on loud colors like this, but I am on plants with such good bloom habits


    San Ignatio is such a pretty color



    Santa's Pants, wish it bloomed better



    Savannah Debutante, I think it is a little more peachy pink that this pic shows


    Screen Pattern is another good plant


    Selma Rose is a very early bloomer with huge flowers. Very short though and I think all of it left this year


    Shaka Zulu is gorgeous and does wonderful


    Shutterbug


    Sings the Blues


    Shelby Summer blush

    Sarah Christine is a really big flower.


    Sea of Cinders is one of our favorites.


    See Me-Feel Me-Touch Me does well here.


    Bob wanted Sheila Broughton for a long time even though it is short and not very well budded. It is a beautiful flower, but he decided it can leave this season.


    Shirley Koch was a gift to our daughter from the hybridizer. It's a great daylily. It's an offspring of White Eyes Pink Dragon.

    More to come . . .

  • hoosier_nan (IN z5b/6a)

    Sihir is becoming one of my favorites. It is an introduction from Daniel Matton of Canada.


    I'm not sure that Sir Francis Drake is very happy in our climate, but it gives lovely flowers.


    Small World Fire in the Hole is one of the most intensely colored daylilies in the garden. The flower is not very big and the scapes are not very tall. It seems to bloom our quickly. We have been using this one in breeding. It will set seeds.


    Small World TNT doesn't seem to want to grow for us. I think it has been at one fan for a couple of years. It did bloom this season.


    Snarl was new last year.



    Snidely Whiplash is one of our favorites--another one from Canada.



    That's all for me.

    Really nice daylilies Brad. There's not a one I don't like. My favorite is perhaps Smiling Ladies. I haven't heard of it before. Looks like a nice flat full face. Lovely shade of pink. How's it do for you?...........Nan: Small world Fire in the Hole has such radiant colors. I like it and I usually don't care for eyed daylilies. Sea of Cinders always is one of my favorites of yours......Nancy: Love the name of Santa's Pants. How cute. Shaka Zulu has a velvet look to it. Nice one.........Maryl

    Brad, my favorite is Sears Tower, I’m assuming all of the blooms, high and low are ST? That’s a cool presentation! I like Smokey Mountain too, do you have more photos of it, I remember unusual coloring.

    Sherry

  • Brad KY 6b

    Here's more of Smoky, and yes, those are all Sears Tower. Maryl, Smiling Ladies does well. I think it is a little too much shade but still has a respectable season. Very large and usually flat.

    Thanks Brad, a great couple shots!

  • hoosier_nan (IN z5b/6a)

    Brad, I really like Smiling Ladies. Such a lovely pink with that green throat! Santorini Sunset is one Bob would really like. We grow Sears Tower too. Bob really like the tall ones and I must say they make a statement in the garden.


    Smoky Mountain Autumn is one that Bob has talked about getting on several occasions. Now that we are growing more diploids, maybe we should get it. Such a lovely bloom.

    Lost this post earlier today. Tried to get “froggy“ and post too many!!

    Lots of nice ones here. Sea Dragon, Smuggler’s Fire, Skyview Ranch, Shaka Zulu, Seven Locks all look good (as do all the others!) Always like Snidely and Brad’s Smoky Mt. Autumn shows more colors than any other photo of it I have seen. Mine is pretty but not that distinctive and I rarely photograph it.

    Hi hoosier_nan. I am just a casual daylily grower but wish to learn more. I have read here that the daylilies grown in Florida won't perform well in Canada. So, I'm wondering if that corollary holds true that the ones bred in Canada, like Snidely Whiplash, won't grow here in the heat of southern Virginia? tia

  • Nancy 6b

    I am the wrong Nancy, and she is far more experienced grower than I am, but I will stick my nose in. Generally, northern growers plant dormants and southern growers plant evergreens. For me in zone 6b, I prefer dormants over evergreens, but not a hard fast rule. I have some Evs that are among the best in my garden, and I know they do well much farther north. This is a great forum to learn from, just ask before buying. And yes, dormants don't tend to do well in far south.

    Snow here this morning! Lots of pretties on this post.


    Sherry - I always love your photos of Sea Dragon!


    Nancy - Sailing at Dawn is so pretty! I've had problems with Red Edition and Pink Lemonade Party losing new fans each year. I finally discovered grubs were eating the roots on the new fans. I showerered the two with Grub-Ex this year, and so far they've kept the new fans.


    Seven Locks caught my eye on your post. Snake in the Grass Boo is a favorite here too.


    Hoosier Nan - Sihir and Snarl are my favorites of yours.


    Brad - Smoky Mountain Autumn is such a lovely blend of colors.


    Celeste - I like so many of yours, but Shelby's Song and Skyview Ranch are tops.


    Kate - Shaman is a nice one. I used to grow it, but it died in the shade. It always rebloomed well here until the neighbors planted trees next to the fence.

    Harold100, we grow many Canadian plants and so far they have all done well. (And it gets quite hot here in the summer too.) We have plants from Bryan Culver, Mike Georges (Snidely Whiplash), Don Longton, Tim Hobbs, Reggie Morgan, Dave Mussar, and Daniel Matton. So far, we have no complaints about any of them, but some haven't been in the garden for a very long time.


    I would think the issue with Canadian plants farther south, as Nancy pointed out, is the dormancy issue. Many dormant plants (which many of the Canadian plants will be) don't do well if the winter weather is too warm for them to go dormant. We don't have that problem in Indiana. If you can successfully grow dormants in your garden, you shouldn't have a problem with the Canadian varieties.


    The biggest problem with Canadian varieties is the difficulty in obtaining them. Some of these hybridizers don't ship to the U.S. and even when they do, it can be quite costly. Many of Bryan Culver's can be found in the U. S. but the others are harder to obtain. Bob and I have gone to the Can-Am Classic hosted by the Ontario Daylily Society for the last few years. We have gotten many of our Canadian daylilies there. They bring in an inspector to provide the necessary documentation (at no cost to us) to take the daylilies across the border. Usually that documentation is rather pricey on top the cost of new introductions.

  • shive

    Harold - You should be able to successfully grow daylilies bred from Canada to Florida. I can grow most all foliage types. The ones I tend to lose in winter are evergreen planted in pots. But if evergreens are in the ground they do fine.

  • Brad KY 6b

    Harold, I'm in Central Ky, which is border between N & S climates, and we get some of each. I've had a few daylilies that didn't grow here but overall I have evergreen, semi-evergreen and dormants and they all do well. I am reluctant and very careful about southern grown ones because I hear about the rust problems they have.

    Sherry ooooooo I love Sea Dragon , Re Sailor Sky .......I always find pink red eyed dayliies a little jarring . not my favourite color combo but I do like the orange throat ......a nice change from the standard green throat, Your particular picture though,

    Nancy 6b Love Santa's Pants Unusual UF is my style . Savannah Debutante ,is very pretty and that's saying something coming from me because I have never been a doubles lover but they are growing on me.

    Hoosier_Nan .......wow ! Sea of Cinders ....oh my ! Sihir is gorgeous . Daniel does have some great looking daylilies .

    Brad Santorini Sunset yowza Love the look of that one and hadn't heard of it . Wonder if it is available anywhere here in Canada . Smokey Mountain Autumn is one I grow here too. Great bloom just way to short to suit me . It stays only because of the color and the bloom shape . Sears Towers is also one I grow here I have several clumps of it . It really is glorious when in bloom tall, robust stems and a nice big bloom. Interesting aside . I gave away a clump of this to a friend I trade daylilies with . He has never had any luck with it . Go figure it does extremely well here and he is only 20 minutes away from me and can't get it to do much . The clump I gave him in fact has dwindled and we can't figure out why . It is very robust here . I very much like Smiling Ladies........... another I will have to search for but I havent seen it before so probably won't be able to find it .

  • signet_gw(6b)

    Hoosier_Nan, I cannot positively say what the cost of a phyto certificate is in other provinces but a phyto to ship to USA here in Ontario is only $13.00 Canadian ( at today's exchange rate $9.77 US ) .

    I know this because I shipped daylilies to Samhain Rau last year . So not expensive at all ......... added advantage to ordering here is the US dollar is worth more than the Canadian dollar . So for example today based on exchange rate a daylily costing 30 dollars Canadian would cost an American buyer $22.50 US

    sherrygirl zone5 N il thanked signet_gw(6b)
  • hoosier_nan (IN z5b/6a)

    Signet, that is interesting. I didn't know a phyto was so inexpensive. We have only had plants shipped from Canada twice--one order from Gil Stelter and one from Daniel Matton. The order from Gil was years ago and Bob handled it so I don't know what Gil charged. I was thinking we paid about $50 US for Daniel's phyto. Of course, he is in Quebec and his costs may be different. I assume handling fees might apply as well.


    I don't know anything about getting a phyto. How do you do it? Do inspectors come to you or do you take them to a government office? I know it will be different in each jurisdiction, but I am just curious. We aren't planning to ship anywhere but the U. S. That is complicated enough. I am almost afraid to ship to the west coast. We are in a Japanese beetle infested area and since they haven't spread across the whole country, California and places out west want to keep them our. I can certainly understand that.

  • signet_gw(6b)

    If I have to do to obtain a phyto I make arrangements with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. They will sometimes come out to inspect the plants but this time I had to prepare the daylilies ( clean off all soil . Roots need to be washed clean , trim the daylily leaves to a reasonable length) , I took them into the Canadian Food Inspection Agency office . The inspector then did a count of the daylilies , inspected them to make sure all the soil was removed inspected the leaves and roots for any pests or soil . I had soaked the plants in water for a couple of days and then hit the roots and leaves with the hose to ensure no soil left on the plants . They passed inspection so he issued the paperwork ( the phyto) . That was all there was to it . I paid my $13 dollars . It was I believe $7.50 for the inspection and $5.50 for the paperwork signed by the inspector . Then he informed me I needed to put the original phyto on the outside of the package and a copy inside. That way the border inspection can happen and the inspector can pass on a copy to what ever people require a copy in the state it is being shipped to . Then of course there is the cost of shipping . In the US each state can have different requirements and costs but the requirements are all pretty straight forward . Phytos cost more in the US and each state has different requirements and costs . For example N.Y . State has a $25 phyto charge . I know this because I am in the process of bringing some daylilies in from a grower in NY state. Other states have higher costs. Michigan I believe was $60 US for a phyto to Canada This link might be of help https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/ourfocus/planthealth/SA_Export

    Sending out daylilies in the US does require some kind of paperwork to ship state to state and requirements like what California has are there so the spread of disease and insects doesn't happen. .Many people do not know this . So I am not sure what requirement Indiana has for exporting daylilies to other states. You would have to get in touch with your local agent to find out requirements , costs etc. Not sure but this link might help https://nationalplantboard.org/wp-content/uploads/docs/summaries/indiana.pdf

    Hoosier_Nan I found this in an article from 2018 ......I guess the fees are pretty much the same at least in Nova Scotia as well as Ontario Here is what I read


    "special geographical position of Nova Scotia and the resulting weather with its challenges for daylily growers. After dinner with great German food we enjoyed the silent auction and the daylily auction. We all went home that night with plants, and for people living in the US it meant that the plants needed to be inspected before they could be brought into the country. Thanks to the foresight of Michelle … we all had a copy of the famous phytosanitary certificate. Michelle also arranged for inspection on Sunday morning where two officers inspected the plants and gave us the necessary certification after we paid the flat fee of $12.50 in Canadian currency"
