'Ruby Lipstick' (a John Benz daylily), was added to my garden in May, 2014. I won it from Abundant Daylilies, a favorite hybridizer of mine earlier in the year. When it arrived it was a very small 3 fans. I remember thinking at that time, 'no way this plant will bloom this year'. In fact, I was worried that the plant might not make it through our very cold Winter. I planted it very carefully and fed it with alfalfa meal and a fish nutrient tea. In six weeks, this plant has tripled in size, and sent up 2 scapes. I am just thrilled with this increase, and even more so, as I will get to see it bloom in a few weeks.

On 'Emerald Dream', I have posted a picture of a great example of what 'rebloom scapes' should look like. In this pix, you see 4 new scapes in the middle of the foliage. Emerald Dream was the first plant to bloom in my Vermont (Zone 4b) garden. It's first bloom was the middle of June, 2014. Six weeks later, it is still blooming, while sending up rebloom scapes as well. Emerald Dream is a 'dream' plant in my garden.

Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'The Goldilocks Effect'), EdBurton wrote:

I bought The Goldilocks Effect in the summer of 2013.
The first time I saw it in bloom is this summer 2014, and by far it is one of the best looking polychromes I have ever seen.
Size is huge, flowers open wide with flawless blooms, seems to be an easy pod setter, branching and bud count are good and I expect it to only get better as plant grows to clump size, and it grows in the frozen tundra of NE Wisconsin!
How sweet is that?
I have been spreading the pollen on everything, this plant is on the grow forever list for me.
Highly recommended.

Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Spanish Sketch'), chalyse wrote:

In Zone 9b (Local Temps = Min 25/Max 108)

Vigor and Flower: Spanish Sketch has done very well in partial shade in 9b, with no insect infestations seen, and does well growing slowly as it winters over in the garden. The background color of the petals when viewed in the morning show the nice subtle pastels and shading of a dormant, and deepen and clarify into full tet. colors by mid-day. It was tested by the University of Arkansas in 2001 and was ranked as being highly resistant to rust there, which means that few or no pustules were observed on the plant's surfaces when exposed to rust. This is noted as an excellent possibility for both garden display and hybridizing toward resistance.

Scape and Foliage: The scape is medium thickness and very sturdy, though it can sometimes take on a not unpleasing slight but upright "S" shape. It holds multiple blooms very nicely and at a very attractive height over the foliage. The fans are able to maintain wider-bladed and more plentiful foliage, starting out a little thin-bladed in center growth, but thick at the outer edges of the fan, and hold eight or more blades on each fan. Spanish Sketch's foliage has stayed a deep green compared to most others.

Overall an excellent choice for garden and hybridizing performance.

Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Silver Pink'), TBGDN wrote:

This came directly from Gilbert Wild Nursery back in the Mid-1990's. It has survived several transplants as well as total shade, hot sun, and soggy soil conditions. Although not showy or "glitzy," it has a quaint charm about it that is appealing when viewed along a shady path in the garden. We've grown it approximately 16-18 years: It is a very rugged plant.
