Roberta's 10-pc. All-Star Fragrant Re-Blooming Daylilies
not what was presented
All my plants are growing but they are very small and as most reviewers said the color is all the same dull apricot. I wanted the pinks and purples. I have other lilies that grow larger each year...maybe these will too. As far as fragrance...maybe because some critter keeps eating what does bloom on these lilies.
Hopefully season two is better
Maybe its the rain, maybe because its the first season but these just aren't blooming and what did was peach and not very large or fragrant. Fingers crossed for better results next year.
Not happy. expcting variety of colors but of the four that bloomed, all peach. Very ordinary. Could have gotten these anywhere much cheaper.
I've ordered several daylily collections from Roberta's. I keep saying I won't buy any more, not because I don't like them, but because I have no place else to put them. But I ordered again this year and these are the best yet. I usually 'dump' the daylilies in the ground with little to nothing else done and I have lousy soil. They 'live', but don't usually bloom or do much for a couple of years. Same this year, but almost every one has bloomed this first year and within just a few weeks of planting. That is a first. I had 2 die #actually 1 came back#. I got replacements this year and one of the replacements has already bloomed. Plants overall are small so far, but I expect that. The blooms aren't large, either, but again expected. My 3-4 year old plants are just huge with lots of big blooms this year. Some of the varieties are the same as what I've gotten before. I don't think there is much fragrance in any. I have much better luck with QVC than mail order places, but after a good place to buy, I think often the rest is just luck when it comes to plants. I was surprised at all the bad reviews for this item. I really have had nothing but good with Roberta's.
Not totally happy
I bought 2 of these sets for an area that was re-done from scratch. Of 2 full sets I've gotten about 4 blooms and all peachy orange. No variety in color as others have mentioned. Not very happy.
I am very disappointed in these lilies. I shared them with my sister and she also had the same result. They are very small and spindly. They are very inferior to my other lilies. I am now very hesitant to buy any further of Robertas products.
These were suppose to be various unique colors. Of the ones that actually bloomed which was only about 75% they were the same ordinary orange you see everywhere. Extremely disappointed
8 out of 10 bloomed. so far, none have re-bloomed. there is no fragrance. they are kinda of skimpy, but this is their first season so I am accounting for that. I would not buy these again. really disappointed with Roberta's this season.
Like the others - where's the color variety?
Like others, mine are all about the small color (the one's that are anything!) They arrived in pitiful shape, so as always, I potted them and put them next to my greenhouse so they would get lots of attention. I never put my Roberta's or most any very tiny plants of any kind right I the ground...always pot them first for awhile. I should have known not to buy any more flowers form QVC. Have had terrible luck! That being said, I have 2 varieties of lemon trees and a blood orange tree that are doing great! So what gives???
I do see a few blooms on these and another set from Cottage Farms, so I guess my $$ are still well-spent, because if they arrive in good condition and have the time, patience and setting to give them lots of care the first year most will survive, and you can't beat the price.
Still decided- no more flowers from either....just trees, and luckily, even though I live in Michigan, I have a greenhouse to house them over winter.
Small, all peach colored, not impressed:(
I am a seasoned gardener and was looking forward to having the varied colors in this day lily collection. I planted these the same day they arrived and only 6 of the 10 plants survived. The six plants are all blooming now all have the same peach colored flowers. I thought possibly it was a shipping error as I was expecting colors other than peach. I expect the 4 plants that did not flourish must be the purple lilies. The other disappointment is the plants are very small. Most have only one to three blooms. Hoping they will continue to grow and possibly will be better next summer.
colors are terrible
the QVC show had nice colors for these lilies. I have all the same colors which are peach and orange which doesn't go with my purple and pink hues in my garden. Will never order again. Would like a replacement of purple and pinks as shown on the air.
worst purchase ever
these flowers were supposed to be all different colors and they are all the same pale washed out peach color I have ever seen. I will not be ordering anything from this nursery again.
