    Default Hemerocallis 'Miss Jessie'

    I know that daylilies aren't exactly exotic, but I absolutely love some of the variations in color and shape! This is one that I purchased this spring at a local nursery - it has really taken off in the last month or so. I can't wait until it is big enough to split so that I can put in multiple places in the yard. Enjoy!

    Very lovely, I do like the dual color types. Do you know if it is Evergreen, semi-evergreen or Dormant?

    I assume that it is dormant because it doesn't require any special care to overwinter in Minnesota, but I honestly do not know for sure.

    Christopher, that is really beautiful!

    BTW, anyone know if there a way to tell if a daylily is dormant, evergreen, or semi-evergreen by looking at the plant? Is this how you know? I need to get some more of these!

    Cheers!

    The only way I know of to check to see if a Daylily is evergreen or dormant is if the nursery has identified it as such. If it isn't marked evergreen, and the nursery doesn't know, assume it is dormant. If you want evergreen plants, there are several mail order nurseries that you can order from. You can PM me for the name of my favorite daylily nursery if you want...

    Christopher, they might not be "exotic" to some, but I think they're darned neat. I totally agree about that color combo. Very cool!
