My Current Crop of Daylilies


My first daylily of the season was, of course, a Stella D'Oro. It reminded me of a lightening bug 'flickering' in the edge of my hosta bed.



Several Stellas bloomed before the next variety did. It was a Crown Royal. While there's only 3 bloom stalks (scapes) there must be 25 or more buds and blooms. Quite nice!!



My third bloomer was my tomato red daylily, named Red Rum:



I'm in Baltimore with my son and his family for the holiday but expect to return home to Tennessee with a garden full of daylily blooms. More photos later.

BFG, sounds like you are in for a spectactular display when you do arrive home. These are beautiful! I'm hoping I see my 'Web of Intrigue' bloom this season as I bought and planted it early April of this year. Something to look forward to. Love your 'Dragon Dreams'. Yes, do show us your updated pics when you get home. Can't wait.

I am so glad your garden is thriving and you are feeling good enough for an extended trip. That is the best news.

Thank you and I've even been able to do a little work in my son's yard--we're doing my 3 year old grandson a 'secret garden'. Wish I felt like doing more, but some is better than nothing.

What a beautiful thing for a child. It is bringing tears to my eyes. I had one , but I just took over a secluded corner of my grandmothers. I would hide under her prize peonies and and an arching plant that made a great little room. I guess I was compacting the soil around their roots. She would half heartedly chaise me out sometimes. Usually she just turned her back.I was very careful and helped her deadhead her plants..
