A La Carte Daylilies

Small Flowered Plants

Small flowered are any 3" to under 4.5" in diameter

If you find the giants of the daylily world somewhat overwhelming or difficult to place, then you may be interested in these smaller varieties. Since they were officially recognised as a seperate class, these plants have attracted increasing attention from both hybridisers and gardeners and have their own special charm.

Enchanters Spell

Enchanters Spell

(Hudson 1982) Ivory with a dark purple and chalky lavender eyezone above a lime throat. The eye pattern is multilayered and is a special feature. We have found this to be a very pretty little eyed daylily, but sometimes reluctant to show the eyezone to it's full potential. When it has done so, however, the effect has been enchanting. It is also a wonderful parent, which has produced a line of intricate eye patterns.

Jan Kay

Jan Kay

(Wyers 2006) The petals are a soft pink with light cream midribs and the sepals are a light creamy pink. This seedling was a real bonus as a plant friend had really liked a daylily in an American catalogue years ago which was very tender and looked very similar to this seedling which has proved to be pretty tough. I had to name this after my special plant friend. It produces lots of flowers when it becomes a small clump making it a good focal point in the border. Tonia Gay was in the parentage of this very pretty daylily.

Ice Castles

(Salter, E. 1985) Beautifully shaped flowers of pale ivory to near white with a hint of pink. Starts to bloom in June and can produce in excess of fifty days of flowers. To keep this up it does need dividing every 3 to 4 years which easier to do whilst it is a small clump and worth it to keep the high flower production.
