Here are some of the daylilies I parted company with in 2018 and the reasons why:
- Bertie Ferris - A prolific mini I've had since the dawn of time - I wanted to try something new.
- Betty Ford - Betty was not happy in my 100% sun garden. I made sure she went to a home with part shade.
- Burning Inheritance - I had a love/hate relationship with this one. Some years it was absolute perfection and some years it was not. Burning Inheritance needed an owner who was not so picky.
- Greystone Sirens (unregistered Lehman seedling) I had a similar plant and I chose to keep the registered one.
- Lake Effect - (blog cover girl) I didn't have enough shade to keep this plant happy in my garden. I found it a new home that has afternoon shade.
- Little Grapette - Super difficult decision; I had grown Little Grapette since I started gardening and it always bloomed like a superstar. I gave this little pixie to a gardener who is just starting out. I know she'll fall in love with daylilies after growing this one.
- Mardi Gras Parade - A gorgeous, profuse bloomer, but my cranky back does not like to deadhead this shorty.
- Siloam Doug's Double - Ditto Mardi Gras Parade
- Siloam Jim Cooper - Another small one...
- Spacecoast Starburst - I grew this beauty for about 12 years and simply wanted to try something new and different.
- Tom Leonard - Another one of my love/hates. I wanted so badly to keep it, but I think a change of scenery was what it really needed. It just wasn't happy at my house.
- Tupac Amaru - I also grow Lounge Lizard, which is quite similar to Tupac. I parted company with Tupac and kept Lounge Lizard because it's taller; I've been gravitating towards taller lately.
- What Nerve - This pretty went to my very dear friend -- I knew she'd take good care of it :)
