First Daylily 'out the gate'


I had a nice surprise when I walked thru my garden this a.m. as I noticed my first daylily to bloom this spring.


If anyone can identify her, please step up!

Show your daylilies as they bloom!

You are good girl once more. Just googled. For a ditch lily, I think she is quite pretty. I don't think I will get alarmed with what I just read in that these lilies can be invasive. And ya know I'll keep my eye on her. Thanks again ana patricia!

Everyone, add your daylilies as they bloom in your garden!

Think you have a 'ditch daylily". Seems many of my good daylilies have reverted back to this.

Hi beavercreek
Hmmm, so you think they take over and possibly smother other daylilies?

I have some kind about to bloom. Will post pics when it does.
I purchased a lot of daylilies from Oakes about 10 years ago. (wow! It's been that long??!!) I have moved and they have moved with me several times, I have not been able to properly plant and take care of them in a good bed, etc.
I'm hoping this year will be different.
Thing is, I think they are all still alive, though I have not seen a single bloom on any of them since that first or maybe second year. They just keep getting transplanted (it sure is hard to live with a man).
Oakes sends some fantastic daylilies by the way. Huge!
I have so many, there's really no reason for me to order any more. I just have to take care of the ones I've got.
Plus plenty of "ditch" daylilies.

I think your lily is very pretty. I have ditch lilies planted near an on and off stream bed and they have really fillied in between the rocks very rapidly. They are not ready to bloom yet because of the cold winter we have had, but I think they look really nice when they do bloom.

Ana, I like the movie that my avatar is from. Plus, I like to think of that guy as myself, and my ex-husband just out of view.

I think they are better known as "Tawny Daylily" I have 3 clumps and I love them. Now matter how cold! they come back, No matter how hot! and dry they don't care. They just bloom the hearts out. So cool.

Thanks SwampLady. And I'll bet you are in for another pretty sight when your ditch lilies bloom this season.

Thanks Sanandres and fearadyn! This year I want to keep a better handle on location, name, etc. of my daylilies. And yes, it was a surprise.

pondlady, oh yes, 'tawny lilies' does sound a bit nicer than 'ditch lilies'. Do you find your clumps are mutiplying rapidly? Thanks pondlady!

Okay, I took a closer look at my ditch/fulva/tawny lilies this morning. I have two separate tawny lily plants; one fan, one stalk/stem per plant. One plant has six buds, the other has seven buds. I've already seen one bud bloom yesterday on one plant, and another bud on the separate plant bloom today. So, I'll be seeing some 13 blooms in total on these two ditch plants. Not too bad.
