Even a yellow daylily can be beautiful.  Here we list all of our registered yellows and golds, sorted by ploidy.  Several were chosen due to their bloom season.  LEMON SENTINEL comes out of Benzinger's ultra-early MAY SEVENTY-EIGHT, bred to something intended to widen the petals.  What we got blooms reliably in the last half of May, two weeks before the rest of the garden gets going.  A long line of them will produce a scatttering of further scapes in the August-September timeframe.

This is extremely striking when established and well watered.


FRESH LEMONADE   (Paine 2010)                        $40.00 for 2 Fans

Named for one of my favorite beverages.  A brother in law in San Diego owns a lemon grove, and nothing beats harvesting them straight off the tree and hauling them to the kitchen for immediate squeezing.  And some of the lemons come the size of grapefruits! (You never see these in the stores.)

FRESH LEMONADE  (Paine, 2010) height 39", bloom 4.75", season MLa, Semi-Evergreen, Tetraploid, ,  Yellow petals and sepals with a tiny green throat. (Isle of Capri × Betty Warren Woods)

GOLD RUFFLES (Paine 2011)


GOLDEN HORDE  (Paine 2010)                              $50.00 for 2 Fans

Although GOLDEN HORDE has a hnit of a halo or eyezone, we feel that it is so subtle, that we should include it with the gold and yellow selfs.

GOLDEN HORDE  (Paine, 2010) height 34", bloom 4.25", season M, Semi-Evergreen, Tetraploid, Fragrant,  Leathery ruffled bright gold with a pale reddish overlay, light reddish halo, paler petal midribs and large yellow to green throat. (Strawberry Candy × Thrift Shop Fantasy)  


LEMON GROVE  (Paine 2010)                                      $40.00 for 2 Fans

This is being offered to those who are impatient for the bloom season to begin, and want so see an early yellow tetraploid of impeccable color, form and substance.  I was amazed that the name was available, since ORANGE GROVE had long since been taken. 

LEMON GROVE is one of our reliably early bloomers.  Since there is not much to breed with it when it is out, we only recently discovered that it can set pods. ( I do not keep pollen in my freezer, let alone from one year to the next.)

LEMON GROVE  (Paine, 2010) height 26", bloom 5", season E, Semi-Evergreen, Tetraploid, ,  Lemon yellow petals and sepals, with paler petal midribs and a green throat. (Omomuki × unknown)


FOR THOSE WHO ARE REALLY IMPATIENT FOR THE BLOOM SEASON TO BEGIN !!! (AND DO NOT MIND A SLIGHTLY MORE PRIMITIVE FORM.)

LEMON SENTINEL  (Paine 2010)                              $40.00 for 2 Fans

This is also being offered to those who are impatient for the bloom season to begin, indeed it is one of the earliest to bloom in our garden, reliably starting in mid to late May, or about two weeks before the beginning of serious bloom.  It gets is early bloom from Frederick Benzinger's legendary MAY SEVENTY-EIGHT.  The goal was to widen the petals of an early bloomer by a cross to more recent introductions.  Our long line of these tends to produce a scattering of further bloom in late August or early September.  Whether the same will happen for you, we cannot predict.

LEMON SENTINEL  (Paine, 2010) height 30", bloom 5.25", season E, Evergreen, Tetraploid, ,  Lemon yellow self with tiny green throat. (May Seventy Eight × unknown)  

Unknown = KATHLEEN SALTER or OLYMPIC SHOWCASE 

Two separate clumps of May Seventy Eight were pollenated by two different parents on the same day, and when the seed was collected, the colored aluminum foil markers told me which day the cross was made.  However, I neglected to record which clump gave which seeds, or whether the seeds were mixed before planting..


LOTHIAN BORDER SQUABBLE (Paine 2011)                   $30.00 for 2 Fans

Midlothian, Virginia, where I live, is named for a part of southern Scotland, located in the vicinity of Edinburgh.  Lothian is located nearby, and being along the Scottish-English border, was the site of many raids back and forth during the Middle Ages.  Naturally, they were all looking for gold (not that they found very much.)



Heavy ruffled flat golden yellow with a tiny green throat.







RUFFLED RASCAL

My partner particularly likes this one, and had been begging me to register it.  It has begun to grow on me too.


YUMA GOLD  (Paine 2010)                                     $35.00 for 2 Fans

Arizona is awash in gold mines (think "Lost Dutchman"), so this name is not a stretch.

YUMA GOLD (Paine, 2010) height 30", bloom 4.75", season M, Semi-Evergreen, Tetraploid, Fragrant,  Ruffled light lemon yellow with a gold bubbly edge, slightly paler petal midribs and a gold to small green throat. (Ferengi Gold × Yuma)
