    The patterning on 'Core Values' is stunning, I could gaze at it all day.............., but best not lol been rejigging a border I wasn't happy with so on with the planting, still so dry though having to water things well before digging up and replanting, long job with the watering cans as the borders at the bottom of the garden and the hill !!!!!!

      I have 73 seeds from various crosses with Core Values - it really is stunning. Don't feel bad about watering - just to get to my mid-back area I have a 100 ft hose, and then I connect it to another 100 ft hose for the back area. Way back requires another 30 footer.
      I have more plants in the mail - Christmas In Oz, Patricia Snider Memorial, and Kokopelli. All DIPs.
      Today, a FFO - Black Arrowhead x Malachite Prism sdlg. Notice it has 3 sepals and 4 petals:

      Also, another FFO, Celestial Empire x Bold Paint. It gets an OK from me, but not much else.

        I had to wait for 3 years before Diane Taylor started blooming, but now it is reblooming. I found it to be pod difficult, which is a shame because it is one of my favourite large doubles:

        Another bright spot in the garden is C-11 x Spacecoast Starburst, which is 6" across:

          Your Diane Taylor looks lovely Wylie, I love it to but here I'm afraid its not at all rain resistant and this year in the heat for some reason it didn't do well either, which is strange as its doing so well with you and you have much warmer conditions :scratch:

            I had to move my Diane Taylor to get it to bloom, and I have a second fan that isn't doing as well - it bloomed once and no rebloom.
            Here are some comparison photos of one I call BSA#7. Back in May it looked like this:
            BSA#7.JPG
            I had a lot of hope for it, but it has started blooming again, and looks like this today:
            BSA#7.JPG
            I might be worried, but last year I had Unk x Smoke Scream do the same thing, and this year all the flowers were appliqued throated. So hopefully next year this will revert.
            Also open is Caledonia x Crocodile Jaws:

              Carpathian Cavalier has started again. It's the return of the rain after 2 very dry months.

                Beautiful............, still no rain here everything's wilting and looking in a right sorry state, we had a little rain a couple of weeks ago but nothing since and that hardly wet the surface, still I'm enjoying this glorious weather even if the plants aren't :biggrin:
                'Diane Taylor' doesn't rebloom here either Wylie.

                  The photo I posted last week of this didn't show how nice it is when it isn't raining. There is a white wire edge to it, and it stays bright all day.

                  Also open is Better Lucky Than Good x Facepaint, the red with red eye.

                    Opening again is the one I call Flower In Vase. I lost the tag, but I know it is a DIP (because it crossed with Buster Ruster) and now that it reblooms. All the flowers have the curling sepals and cascading petals which means it measures only 5.5" across, but it is much larger.
                    Flower in Vase.JPG
                    And also open is Inner View - one of the first and last to open:

                      'Inner View' seems to love the Azores, don't blame it :biggrin:, I get rebloom from it most years but not this year mind you we have had rain at last and quite a few are getting excited and sending up scapes,bit late now I think, Lacy Doily's still going though 3 flowers open today.

                        My Lacy Doily doesn't rebloom, and I think it is either the location or not enough sun, so I will be trimming a couple of trees.
                        Amethyst Reflections x Unk -they are all real work horses, but here is the one that is more butterscotch than cream. In case you can't figure it out, there are actually 3 flowers open at the same time. :heehee:

                          While many of the plants are going to sleep, a few hardy ones are still in flower.
                          Here is Cosmic Courier. It's a lot like Tropical Tangerine, but has a bubbled edge:
                          Cosmic Courier.JPG
                          Paco Paco has started again. Last winter it was dormant, so I'm a little suprised it has started dying back.
                          Paco Paco.JPG
                          And Small Tempest is in flower with its strong eye:
                          Small Tempest.JPG
                          I started work on digging up those that won't be with me next year. So far, 20 are being given a second chance and 30 are in a give away pile. If I am not careful, the whole island is going to be covered in daylilies.:heehee:

                              If you really want "not fair", I have a first timer today. I got Velvet Onyx as a bonus plant last fall from Sheila, and it has finally started to bloom:
                              Velvet Onyx (2).JPG
                              Also Frankenfkower, which provided my last seed pods (F. x Lip Smack and F. x Don Herrell) has also started again:

                                Here it is, the end of the year, and for anyone who thought this had died, I have one last photo of a daylily that is open today. This is a Joy of Life seedling (or Joy of Life x Unk). It has taken 2 days to finally open, but it managed. 6" across, and not the best of the group. The other plants have pure orange doubles while this is a composite.
                                Joy of Life sdlg.JPG
                                I started soaking the first group of seeds last week, and this evening I will be putting water in the bags of the next group. Weather permitting, it is time to get out and start weeding the new seedlings that will be flowering for the first time next year
