New Varieties and Older Recent Daylilies - Now Available 

Dear fellow daylily enthusiasts, 
I am delighted to introduce you to some new varieties and reintroduce some of our most popular varieties which haven't been available in our shop for some time. Now that stocks have been replenished, they will be available in limited supply from the 25th November. Please read on to find out more...

NEW VARIETIES AND OLDER RECENT DAYLILIES
NOW AVAILABLE

Late on Saturday 24th November these varieties will be activated in the shop so that you may order them. There are only 2 or 3 of each variety available at this time and we will fill orders with the largest of the single divisions of each one. Once they’re sold out they will be removed from the shop, so it will be a case of "first in first served". Please do not ask me to reserve any varieties for you as it won't be possible.

Joel may re-instate these varieties in autumn when stocks have been replenished. Joel and Heidi will let you know in the New Year their contact phone number and email address. I’ll retain the present email address. 

A reminder – some of these images have been taken from the hybridiser’s website. This is only a sample of what will be activated in the shop.

SUBSTITUTES

If any varieties are sold out before I process your order, I’ll refund you in PayPal. However, if you email me several substitutes to daylily@bigpond.com I’ll make the changes to your order and adjust the prices.

FINAL MAIL OUT DATE FOR 2018 WILL BE TUESDAY 18TH DECEMBER.


SETTLEMENT DATE FOR THE SALE IS NOW 8TH JANUARY

Orders received up to the 7th January will be dug by Joel for me at a later date.

A DAYLILY NAMED
“SCOTT ALEXANDER”


Glen Ingram, a keen collector of daylilies and a small-time hybridiser asked if he could register a seedling with the American Hemerocallis Society to be named “Scott Alexander”.   I have to say I was very surprised and quite moved that one of my clients would like to do that. He had bred several quite nice seedlings and asked me to select the one I’d like to be named
after me. Being a very keen breeder up to 2004 and especially of fragrant doubles, I chose a beautiful double which is in the colours I like. I could see the potential of using it in a breeding programme and will be asking Joel to try his hand at hybridising and make crosses with the very fragrant doubles “In Excess” and “Heaven Scent”  -  two of my most fragrant doubles.

A BEAUTIFUL VIEW FROM THE KITCHEN SINK


Waiting for the jug to boil is a very pleasant sight these days as three varieties standout in the early morning sunlight, in a garden bed  3 some 30m away.



"Little Miss Sunshine" puts on a wonderful display of 4 or 5 blooms open at the same time day after day for several weeks on end.



"Eloquently Edged" has such an eye- catching color as well. It has the honour of being No. 2 variety in my garden that repeats flowering most often ("Tranquillity" is No.1).



I named this variety "Daytime Dazzler" for obvious reasons. It’s a striking colour in the early morning light.
