Jamaican Rebloom and Variegated Daylilies
Above are two of my LAST 2005 rebloomers, Jamaican Midnight (top) and Jamaican Jammin (bottom) both taken in NOVEMBER! Jamaican Jammin rebloomed for more than a month!
JM may be Florida rebloom, since I just got it this year, but JJ is in its 2nd year here. JJ is a Shooter (Marietta Gardens) 98 registration; JM is a mid-nineties Salter, both inexpensive.
TOPIC 2: VARIEGATED DAYLILIES!
Many of us have the species Kwanso Variegated, but there are others available now too! Monrovia introduced one a couple of years ago called 'Golden Zebra' and it's available many places, including Wayside Gardens www.waysidegardens.com ($25) and Plant Delights Nursery www.plantdelights.com ($22) but it is patented so no COMMERCIAL breeding permitted. However, Plant Delights has a second one, H. 'Secured Borders' (Przypek 05) which ISN'T patented, from a streaked Hyperion. But it is only streaked in the spring, greening up in the summer. Any other cultivars available out there?
