To check availability of any of my cultivars, go to the Quick Listing (names of available plants and prices) or the Full Listing (names and stats of all my introductions, current status and price, where available).
Red, Orange, Yellow, Cream, Pink, Lavender, Purple, and Brown all occur in daylily flowers, while some extreme gene combinations result in near-white and near-black flowers. Some Lavender and Purple flowers can have very bluish tones.
While I have a personal preference for certain colors, I have grown, bred from and introduced them all. I really do love all colors!

The vast majority of my introductions are dormants, or semi-evergreens that remain green in warm-winter areas, while going dormant in cold-winter areas. Many northerners who grow a lot of my cultivars say many of my semi-evergreen intros are dormant for them. Frequently those same plants remain green all winter in the Deep South.

I tested for rust resistance during the first years of my breeding program to ensure the presence of those genes at the foundation of my program.
This resulted in isolating many rust resistance seedlings, both for my program and to introduce and ship to rust endemic areas.
Go to this page for a listing of all my introductions with their respective observed rust resistance, as well as the number of years they were tested.
From minis with foliage a few inches tall and scapes not much taller, to giants with foliage that towers nearly three-feet and scapes up to six-feet or more, the range of sizes is vast.
While my main breeding program is focused robust, tall tetraploids, I have grown all sizes and produced at least a few introductions for each category.

Ploidy levels are generally diploid and tetraploid, though there are other ploidy levels, with some of the species clones being triploid.
None of the data on ploidy level will matter if you just want to grow and flower daylily plants.
The ploidy level will matter to breeders though. As a general rule of thumb, diploids only breed with each other, while tetraploids only breed with each other. The reality is, of course, a bit more complicated.

Daylilies bloom across a fairly wide season from late spring through late summer.
The peak of the season depends on where you live and which parts of the season your daylilies bloom in.
Many cultivars bloom in the early and mid seasons, with early-early cultivars often being very popular in the Deep South, while mid-late to very late cultivars extend the season, and are more popular in cold-winter gardens.
