Welcome, Maria. You never got an answer to your question about late
blooming daylilies. Yes, there are many. Most don't bloom as long as Stella
D'Oro does but I have one still in bloom here, although I can't tell you
its name, and I know there are others. Most suppliers tell you when bloom
is, early, mid season or late, so you can choose them for that particular
characteristic and keep the show going. I'm guessing it was White Flower
Farm's daylilies you read about. While their unnamed bargain lilies were
apparently a good mix of early to late ones, there are cheaper sources,
particularly among the small specialty growers of daylilies. Cheryl
