    Now in its 3rd year these are not only tall, but prolific and long-blooming. We’re going to buy more! An eye-catcher for the whole neighborhood

  3. Lovely Thing

    r coll (verified owner)

    I love this lily… so tall….the scapes are about 6 feet high here in Maryland. These are first year blooms that I put in a good deal of compost when planted – but then pretty much left to the elements other than some bone meal late winter. The scapes are strong and holding up against the wind and they are a real neighborhood show-stopper. I need more for a dark place on the side bed and will be buying again. Great addition to my blooms.

  4. Just keeps on blooming.

    Kenny Steinberg (verified owner)

    I planted it last year to see if it could help anchor the back of my garden. It does this well at over 5 feet high, so I plan to order more. And it just keeps blooming and blooming!

  5. Towering!

    Susan Picard

    I moved to NC from NYS and carried my Autumn Minaret with me. It makes the biggest statement among my other daylilies. The soaring height must be seen. Even though it’s a dormant variety it blooms beautifully and reliably for me. It gets sun in the morning and afternoon shade. The flower power can’t be beat on this showstopper. Friends double-take when they see it. It’s SLOW to increase so I haven’t been able to give any away. Easy to maintain and the flowers tend to fall off cleanly and neatly. I’m happy to see it offered here. Buy it!

  6. AUTUMN MINARET in November just after Sunrise

    natureguycitygal

    A different exposure with “alpenglow” of early morning gives somewhat of a false view of color… however at this time of day it is definitely slightly deeper colored than my other photo.

  8. Amazing bloom cycle

    natureguycitygal

    I first understood this to be a very late bloomer only to have my plants begin blooming early June. They bloomed with at least 2 – 3 scapes each for several weeks then pooped out. Then to my surprise they began once again in October. Today is one day after Thanksgiving. There is one flower open with two buds yet to come on one plant’s scape with another plant having two more buds.
    Now here is the clincher: One plant has a scape less than 1 foot tall that is just now forming new buds! It is quite possible that AUTUMN MINARET could still be blooming by Christmas!!!!
    We live in San Diego. There is almost nothing in our garden that follows the common descriptions for most plants! I cannot wait for the other five daylilies that we received rather “late” this season. They are all growing very strong with plenty of new growth this same date.
    One last comment about AUTUMN MINARET- I was a bit disappointed at the 38 inch height of the scapes! I am allowing for this being their first year and also we live on a mesa where it can get very windy- winds that are generally very dry and sometimes very hot! I might try placing a couple of them in a more protected “micro-climate” in our garden!
    About the second photo… in case anybody is wondering- the spidery stuff in the background is the amazing panicle (kind of broken up) of Eragrostis spectabilis which is one of the “LOVE” grasses. Puts out this abundance of 2 – 4 foot airy panicles that nearly cover the low clump of leaves and just about everything around it. Very easy to grow even in very cold climates.

  9. November 1 and still blooming

    Paula in Houston

    This is my go-to late bloomer in my Houston garden. It’s just now November, and it’s been blooming for over 2 months. It has naturalized nicely, as well. Mine isn’t as tall as some others (only 4 ft. or so), but it continues to bloom profusely and for a long season.

    It may not have the biggest bloom of all my daylilies but it has been blooming now for at least 2 months in my Raleigh NC (7b) garden. It’s lovely butter yellow blooms just keep on going. The stalk is about 4″ tall but then I’m quite lax spreading fertilizer. And, I agree, this is the only daylily the deer didn’t eat. I will be ordering more.

    It is blooming right now, there are 10 blooms today, I would expect it to bloom for at least another 2 weeks. It is a giant, I’m 6’2″ and it is taller than me. Very beautiful, took about 4 years for it to really take off, and this is the year it has. I have counted at least 20 scapes, and I get at least 10 blooms daily. What a plant!! Love it, going to order some more.

    We planted Autumn Minaret in the spring of 2012 and waited for it to bloom, but it was pouting about the move and didn’t that year. In 2013, it waited until all the others had finished in order to get our attention all to itself and bloomed moderately at almost five feet tall. The thin strong scapes started blooming their pretty faces at a shorter height and kept making new buds at their tips as they grew taller. Our oohs and aahs must have flattered and pleased it. This year it has shot up a thicket of scapes already over four feet tall and is setting buds by the dozens. We are in for a show! Thinking of how to extend the day lily bloom season? This on will certainly do that. We are very pleased with it.

    Truly a tall daylily! They reach for the top of my six foot cedar fence. Still blooming in CA.’s hot Central Valley and it’s nearly August! In its second year and showed many scapes with multiple blooms. Tends to face the sun, though. Much like a sunflower. A great background daylily.

    Every time I think I know what my favorite daylily is, another one comes along that steals my heart. Autumn Minaret has done just that. One can’t help smiling when you see the happy blooms. They look so cheerful, standing so tall. It has produced an abundance of blooms and still has many new buds forming. I will be enjoying it for a good long while. I have it planted at the back of the border near a finch feeder. The goldfinches light on the tall stems of the daylily and await their turn at the feeder. It’s a beautiful sight! I will be ordering more of these.

    This is my most useful daylily. Anywhere I need a tall plant to fill in a space in my gardens, this is my “go to” plant. I’ve used it to fill gaps between bushes, tall grasses, tall sunflowers/perennials and to border the back of my main garden which runs the complete length of my garage. Flowers are very delicate and graceful suspended high above the foliage. Love it!

    I have over 50 different varieties of daylilies and this is the most unique one in my garden. It’s extremely tall height makes it perfect for the back row behind other plants. Besides being a very late bloomer, it blooms for about 6 weeks straight (mine is 4 years old). While you look down to admire every other daylily, this one you see as soon as you walk in the garden because it stands above everything else. I make room for new daylilies by giving away less desirable plants, but this one will always have a permanent spot in my garden.
