Daylilies in the north


You are right about some daylilies not surviving well in different climates.
However (isn't there always a "however" when it comes to gardening), I grow
many evergreens (usually grow best in in the south) and semi-evergreens.  I
wish I could say that there is a hard and fast rule to go by, but the only
test is time.  I would not try to grow a new collection from a southern
hybridizer until those plants have been tried in the north. By the way,  I
wouldn't buy a new collection from anyone as they can run in the thousands
of dollars!  I like to purchase plants that I've seen grow well in other
people's gardens, or plants on the popularity polls. I usually get these at
club sales or from friends.  Also, AHS award winners are a safe bet.
Mostly, I go by what I've seen growing.  Every once in a while, I buy
something by a picture alone. This technique is always a gamble. 

Buying "dormants" in the north is a safer way to go.

I'm no expert, but aren't some of the daylilies that are grown in the south
not able to survive in the north?  Here we select the varieties that are
listed as dormant and steer clear of those marked evergreen (I think  - and
I think there's a third kind).  Do you know what kinds you have?  I'm sure
Chris and others on the list could give much more accurate info.
