Historic or Heritage Daylilies
1940 to 1944


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 it. 


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.
