My gardening heart is in roses. But daylilies are great fun.  There's nothing like going out in the morning to find out what new seedlings have appeared. I love historic and historical roses too. My website for daylilies and roses is at . Here are a few of my favorite roses follwed by some daylily groupings:
*Rosa glauca, species, once-blooming, hardy to zone 3. has unusual purple green foliage and red stems, great for arranging.
*Alain Blanchard, 1839, hybrid gallica, once-blooming, mottled petals
*Baronne Prevost, Deprez 1852, damask perpetual, reblooming, strong fragrance
*Orange Ruffels, Brownell 1952, locally hybridinzed in RI. The Brownells aimed for re blooming roses hardy in New England
*Madame Hardy, Hardy 1832, damask, pure white with green button eye
*Rhode Island Red, Brownell 1957, one of Brownell's series of reblooming pillar roses
*Rosa gallica versicolor or Rosamundi, sport of the species Rosa gallica. Named for Fair Rosamund, mistress of Henry II
*Souvenir du President Lincoln, Moreau-Robert 1865, Bourbon, "souvenir" means "in memory of"
*Madame Gregoire Staechlin or Spanish Beauty. Dot 1927, wonderfully fragrant old fashioned  climber with the outer petals stained red
