Fantastic - I've added it to my favorites. You are right about the polies - I have had a lot, especially those that are supposed to be that way.

Thanks 2ndhand, lucky you living near a grower, its got to be Snapdragon ?? :-), that'd be fatal for me I'd be there all the time :-)

Hi Sinbad, don't know if it is snapdragon, That member hasn't written owt about location etc. But the grower I was thinking of is near Lampeter, West Wales.
But have now decided to go to Malvern show. Hope there might be a few late flowering plants there and if I'm lucky maybe a few Hemeroc here and there.

Sorry 2ndhand I was off in a world of my own there,lol, I buy quite a few of my daylilies from a seller on ebay called Snapdragonplants,looked were you were located and think it could be them, they also have a website, not a huge amount on there they seem to sell more on ebay, lovely sellers I've had a couple of 'wrong' plants and they've offered me my money back but I decided to keep them as they were actually very nice plants, here's a link to their site
I went to Malvern spring show, no dayliles there then but did of course come away with some other plants :-), hope you enjoy it :-)
Forgot there's another daylily seller near you, another I've had some lovely ones from

Hi Simbad, I had to look at Isfryndaylillies. especially as I have the same house name. Interesting site. Snapdragon plants looks like the one and same, local to me.

Isfryndaylilies are great plants 2ndhand they're a mother and daughter business and belong to another chat site I go on, they have a huuuge collection, they're also selling on ebay at the moment, some are probably cheaper to buy from their site though as the spider and ufo's are really popular and usually go for more on ebay!!! , they sell under the name of lilifryn.

Hi Simbad

Now thats a bute , I have bought from both Welsh sellers both 5 star but Isfryndaylilies have more choice.

I have had most cheeper from Ebay then their website
