Even though I once thought I was all through with Hemerocallis, now I'm back in love with them. I've been planting them near my currants and gooseberries so I can enjoy them while I am picking fruit. I've made alot of red currant and gooseberry juice and I now have alot of daylilies in bloom nearby. My two favorites at the moment are 'Tuscawilla Tigress' and 'Alabama Jubilee'. Both are large, tetraploid, and vivid orange. I have been crossing them almost every day which is very simple with Hemerocallis- simply take the stamens from one and rub some pollen on the stigma of the other (the pod parent).
I like 'Buttered Popcorn' which is gold and 'Ophir' (gold) which is an old diploid variety. I like all the clear lemon yellow ones such as 'Big Bird' which is blooming now (a tet). I also like the clear, true reds one such as 'Baja' and have a few different good reds.
I'm planning to buy 5 or 10 new ones of the daylilies Bill Frost has bred in the last 30 years. I hope tomorrow morning. I don't really need more plants
