Smart and Frugal Thinning of SeedlingsSmart and Frugal Thinning of Seedlings
By dave, July 28, 2015

In this video, Trish demonstrates how she manages her trays of seedlings. Rather than simply cut away excess seedlings in a tray, she divides the seedlings and pots them up into empty cells. This way she ends up with full trays of seedlings with very few wasted plants.

These are pollinator magnets! All kinds of little fliers love them.

I have a bunch filling a 6'Lx3" W raised bed. A few escape, and are easily pulled up, and relocated on an embankment for erosion control.

I can see that someone might get annoyed if they wanted it in a certain area, and it randomly kept popping up out of boundaries, but if it's used "correctly" and given an area to itself to spread in, its boundaries can be easily maintained by a lawn mower, weed barrier, stonework, or even raised beds and walkways.

It shouldn't be planted near persons with bee sting allergies, because it bustles with pollinators, including bees and wasps.

It can self seed, and individual plants pop up in various places, and that might be what they mean by invasive.

Self sowing plants, if left there, can start new colonies, that would be hard to get rid of, especially in unmowable places.

'Wide Awake' is one those daylilies that you remember being gorgeous, but only when it blooms are you reminded just how beautiful it is. It has amazing form and is elegant and delicate in both color and ruffling. A very special daylily indeed!

By GDJCB on Jul 27, 2015 10:59 PM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Coral Majority')

Coral Majority, is a late bloomer, and one of the last plants blooming here, Central Washington State. Coral Majority is a very bright bloom, with a glow that can't be captured in a picture. It also has very high scape density for lots of blooms.

By GDJCB on Jul 27, 2015 10:54 PM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Chicago Apache')

Chicago Apache is a mid-late bloomer for me, and it is one of the last Daylilies in bloom here, Central Washington State. Scapes are over 30", and color holds very well for such a dark red.
