Happy Ever Appster® Daylilies – The World’s First Line of Everblooming Daylilies

How do you live Happy Ever Appster®?
Take the ever-popular ‘Happy Returns’ Daylily, hybridize to get new colours and you get a Happy Ever Appster®. So, where did the name for this brand line come from?

  • Happy – all varieties are proud children of ‘Happy Returns’
  • Ever – these everblooming Daylilies flower from summer to frost.
  • Appster – this line is hybridized by world-renowned daylily breeder, Dr. Darrel Apps, who has isolated the recessive everblooming gene.

Through many years of selective breeding, Dr. Apps has created an amazing new group of hybrids, extending the colour range well beyond the deep-gold shade of ‘Stella de Oro’. Happy Ever Appsters® exhibit at least three blooming cycles per year, leading to the longest bloom times available. Under test conditions they have carried flowers for up to 125 days in a single year. Actual garden performance varies by climate, but 75 days of bloom should be possible even in cool summer regions.

Happy Ever Appster® Daylilies now come in shades of apricot, yellow, pink, rose and red, some with stunning contrasting eyezones. Dr. Apps’ breeding efforts are producing tremendous breakthroughs.


Trophytaker® Daylilies – The Pacesetter for Performance

What makes one Daylily better than another?
High standards! These have been rigorously tested by Dr. Darrell Apps of Ridgeton, New Jersey, one of the world’s leading hybridizers of Daylilies. A Trophytaker® must meet or exceed set standards in six important categories:

  1. Beauty: A Trophytaker® must reflect the beauty of modern daylilies. Most older varieties have less attractive flowers, often lacking the vigour and substance of today’s new hybrids.
  2. Hardiness: Many Daylilies have been selected for flower form, rather than hardiness. Trophytaker® Daylilies must be hardy to at least USDA Zone 5. Many are hardy in Zones 3 or 4.
  3. Fast Clumping: Gardeners want a nice clump quickly. A Trophytaker® will triple its fans the first year.
  4. Bloom Period: The average Daylily blooms for approximately 21 days. Trophytakers® must at least double the average, blooming a minimum of 42 days at the research site.
  5. Superior Foliage: Many Daylilies surrender to the elements by mid-summer. A Trophytaker® must maintain attractive foliage until late in the season.
  6. Pest Resistance: Trophytakers® must be as insect and disease resistant as possible.

That’s what makes one Daylily better than another… Trophytaker®.
Enjoy distinction, value and great garden performance.
