A La Carte Daylilies

Miniature Flowered Plants

Miniature flowered are any under 3" in diameter

There is a particular charm and delicacy about these little plants and what they lack in bloom size they tend to make up for with increased flower production. Ideal for any size of garden and useful when space is at a premium, they are also well suited for growing in containers. Incidentally, the term "miniature" refers only to the flower size and not the height, although they are usually in proportion.

Butterpat

It may be an oldie but it is very pretty, producing lots of flowers in a clump which creates a wonderful visual effect. The only reason we have not sold it before is that Jan did not want to divide it as she said she would miss it's luminous display in the garden.

Cranberry Baby

(Croker 1984) A round, lightly ruffled, cranberry red blooms with a deeper eyezone and veining. An extremely pretty little daylily that is always in demand, it is one that when divided needs to be grown on as it resents being divided into single pieces. So it is divided and grown on for some time before it reappears in our catalogue. When replanted it multiplies quite quickly.

Jason Salter

Jason Salter

(Salter E.H. 1987) Very famous award winner and breeding plant. The flower is a strong yellow of rounded form with an etched eye of raisin plum, if given the right conditions.

It does not perform well here and we are only selling it because we have heard good reports from elsewhere ¨ maybe it dislikes our heavy clay. L.A.A. winner 2000.
