Below are two pictures of DOOMSDAY (Taylor, 1956). The first one which shows some petal curl was taken
on a day with very low humidity. Although this is Florida, I mean low humidity of about 15% in the dry season.
DOOMSDAY had done well for me, but since it can Rust, I have to be careful with it. I don't want it to meet the fate
so many Daylilies here have... In Fall 2012, I had to move my plants of DOOMSDAY to the hotter side of the house
where I now have them under the eaves against a wall. In the shady zone, the blooms looked great, but the Rust Resistance
Grade in that location was an F. In the sun, so far, it is doing better with a grade C+. That may be subject to
change. I have grown this plant for 15 years.
This is AUTUMN MINARET (Stout, 1951), It has been here only two seasons, so how it will do in the
long run has yet to be seen. So far, it gets a Rust Resistance Grade of C. Because of Rust, I had to move it to
a sunnier spot and hope it holds up there.
