PURPLE WATERS (Russell, 1942). Still is considered a good purple. This does rebloom some here. The
color in the photo is accurate. This is a late April 2008 photo. PURPLE WATERS is a Dormant.
In 2009, it had proliferations which I am using to start a couple more clumps of this nice Daylily. In December 2012,
I am having to replant it into larger containers to give the plants more growing room. I have grown PURPLE WATERS all
15 years I have lived here. The Rust Resistance Grade is B.
Above is GOLD COAST (Emigholtz, 1943). I took this photo using an umbrella as shade on a very bright
hot day. I started this plant from a proliferation removed [with permission] from a plant outside the office of
the Dunnellon Chamber of Commerce. I appreciate that a gardener out west, Glenn Gordon Stoneking-Jones was able to identify
This is a clump shot of GOLD COAST in bloom. This spot holds dampness and the plant would get Rust
quite badly twice each year. The Rust Resistance Grade in this spot was D-. I moved it to a spot where the foliage
does not get wet as often, and it appears to be getting a C+ grade in the new spot. I also had to divide it when I moved
it. I have grown this one 6 years.
