Daylily Frans Halls

By Flory – 1955

This historic daylily was named for the old Dutch painter Frans Halls who’s famous work “The Laughing Cavalier” surely inspired the name. The bi-colored flowers of bright rusty orange/red alternating with solid gold surely brings a happy chuckle to the garden. This classic mid to late season bloomer holds 4 ½ flowers atop 24 inch well branched scapes. A dormant diploid, it is also a heavy bloomer, a good grower, and sports a creamy yellow midrib on the red petals.

Parentage: (Baggette × Cornell)



Daylily Double River Wye

By Kropf  – 1992

daylily-double-river-wye-21This is a light yellow double with a green throat that is 4 ½ inches. It is a dormant diploid which blooms mid-season and then re-blooms. I love this daylily for its loose form; it’s not tightly arranged like most double daylilies.  It looks almost like a yellow peony.


Daylily Condilla

By Grooms – 1977

daylily-condilla1This 4 1/2″ double bloom is a glowing gold that really pops especially in part shade.  The 20″ tall plants are early-mid season re-bloomers. The petals have little ruffled edges and she has beautiful form, opening perfectly every time.  A dormant, diploid, she is a winner of the Award of Merit, the Lenington All American Award and the Ida Munson Award for Best Double.

Daylily Bitsy

By Warner, 1963

daylily-bitsy1This miniature daylily sports 2″ blooms on a plant that only stands 12-18″ tall. A 2002 All American Daylily Selection, this extra-early bloomer will re-bloom heavily.  She is a semi-evergreen, diploid with masses of petite blooms that are light yellow with a green throat, above grassy foliage. This daylily is also nocturnal so it is perfect for the moon garden and another interesting trait is that the flower scapes are dark in color so that in the dark the flowers seem to float.

Parentage:  Pinocchio x Sooner Gold



Daylily Raspberry Pixie

By Williamson – 1969

daylily-raspberry-pixie1This is a miniature daylily growing to only 1 ½ feet with 2 ½ inch blooms.  The plant is an evergreen, diploid with fragrant fuchsia blossoms that blooms and re-blooms starting mid-season.


Daylily Ming Toy

By Wheeler – 1947

daylily-ming-toy1This is a mini daylily that stays less than 15 inches.  It starts blooming early and keeps blooming with a mass of 3 inch red flowers.  These red flowers won’t fade or spot in hot sun. They hold the bright red/orange well and the throat is a very bright gold.  Sometimes the edges are also touched in gold.  Evergreen; diploid.


Iris Neglecta

Collected by Hornemann – 1813

This Historic TB Iris is something of an enigma. If I remember the story goes that it was originally thought to be a species I. Neglecta but some believe that it was a naturally occurring hybrid between I. variegata and I. pallida or possibly I variegata and sambucina. There are multiple species of iris growing wild around the Mediterranean and it is uncertain if they are varieties or hybrid crosses of each other.  It was first sold commercially by Biltmore Nursery Iris Catalog in 1912. This little guy has probably under gone some natural selection over the last 200 years as well because you will notice that varieties of this selection sold by different sources are often not exactlyIris Neglecta (3)1 alike. To confuse things even more the title “Neglecta” has come to be used to name a “class” of iris that have a bi-tone color pattern featuring blue and white. Characteristics that this iris should show include dark rich purple falls that are netted with white and lavender standards. The beards are yellow. By today’s standards these would most likely be considered Miniature Tall Bearded. Although they are 2.5 feet tall the flowers are smaller than modern Tall Bearded Iris. They have a delicate form that is beautiful in a light wind.


Hosta Resonance

By Shaw/Aden 1976

Resonance is a low growing, small hosta with medium green leaves that have a creamy/white wavy edged margin. The orchid flowers appear in August. It forms a nice clump with lanceolate leaves and the leaves turn to the side giving it a pinwheel shape. A mature plant is 13″ tall by 30″ wide.


Hosta Green Sparkler

By Zilis 2010

This small hosta (about 10 inches tall by 2 feet wide when mature) is a sport of Sparkler. It is like one of my favorites Red October in that it has red petioles. The difference is that the leaves are bright green, wavy and shiny instead of dark green and glaucous. The flowers are pale purple on 2 foot scapes.


Daylily Wineberry Candy

By Stamile 1980
Daylily Wineberry candy1Wineberry is a favorite member of the “candy” series. It is a slightly fragrant, dormant tetraploid that is a mid-season rebloomer. The 4.5 inch bright pink flowers have a dark purple/magenta eye-zone. They seem to get darker as they age. She has won the Stout Silver Medal, L. Ernest Plouf Award and an AHS Award of Merit.
