Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Double Red Royal'), chalyse wrote:

Vigor and Flower: Double Red Royal has performed well in the semi-shaded area of our 9b garden. The double bloom is fully formed from the first flower open, and two blooms will often open on different areas of one scape at the same time. The buds are almost as beautiful as the flowers in terms of garden interest and display. The spent flowers retain a lot of color and darken and curl nicely. Though not noted in the cultivar's registration, the petals have a thin white edge, the edge is somewhat serrated, and often has extra petal material often referred to as "angel wings." It was ranked as resistant to rust in 2001 by University of Arkansas testing, which means that less than 50% of the plant showed disease when exposed to rust.

Scape and Foliage: The scape is straight, thick and sturdy and holds even two very substantially doubled flowers well at the same time. Though my pictures show an angled scape you'll notice the fan is leaning out from the crown also. At the apex of a clump, then, the scapes would be vertical. The foliage is wide and fairly well open toward flat, with a typical open-fan arrangement that is just loose enough to give some variation to the silhouette. Leaves are similarly classicaly arched with some occasional ruffle to them.

Overall an outstanding cultivar for zone 9b.

Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Highland Lord'), chalyse wrote:

Vigor and Flower: Highland Lord started out as a healthy plant years ago in our gardens, but gradually lost vigor and dwindled down, along with other long, narrower-leaf daylilies that consistently under-perform in summer temps above 90-100 in our zone 9b. It did not increase over three years. Just not enough vigor in the leaves to support more gain than loss, and not an appropriate cultivar for use in a drought tolerant hybridization program. A real shame as it looks in photos like it would have a pleasing flower. Developmentally delayed bloomer at best, progenitor of downward spiraling at worst, it will be replaced with a wider leaf cultivar.

Scape and Foliage: The fans did not produced a scape during three years in 9b. The foliage is long and more upright than most, with few leaves. The aspect of each blade is somewhat tightly closed in a "V" rather than more open or flat.

A recommended alternative tet for 9b would include Party Popper which, though it unfortunately takes a year to stabilize color, has a fresh blend of red to pass on, and has proven to be a great garden performer and pod parent. For home display gardens, the dip Double Red Royal is a standout stand-in in 9b, and was tested at the University of Arkansas in 2001 where it was graded as resistant to rust (less than 50% of plant showing disease when exposed to rust). In shade, it displays closer to the purple end of the red spectrum here, but in full sun it is much closer to a deep medium red, and it has a hearty, velvety substance that is fairly sun fast.

This daylily is an early morning opener even on colder days. Its colors are very bright and attention getting when it first opens, but by midday it has faded to a pale version of its earlier self. Still very attractive even then, however.

Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'In Search of Angels'), Dayjillymo wrote:

In Search of Angels has been quite a pleasant surprise for me. It has grown well and its blooms are a much more vibrant, more exciting shade of rose than I imagined it to be. Photos I have seen do not do it justice. I have used its pollen this year, and some early pods are developing. I am very happy with this plant. Zone 5.

Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Gripping Power'), Dayjillymo wrote:

Gripping Power came as a double fan plant and very nearly died its first year. I thought it was dead, but it revived and grew in the spring. It was very short, perhaps only 14 inches tall that first bloom season, and I was not happy with it, but this year is a completely different story. It grew well, increased well, and grew as it should. Blooms were big and beautiful and the plants were much taller, with dark green leaves. Overall, this plant recovered from a rotten first year and has become a very nice plant for me. Zone 5.
