Ripley, MS

The month for all the perennials to really start up and we should see some beautiful things on this thread.
All are welcome to show pictures, as we have said before Mid South, is more a state of mind than a location, and all beautiful flower pictures are welcome !

I had more day lilies open this morning. What fun it is to go out everyday and see all the beautiful new blooms!

Spring Formal (I posted this before but something had eaten a lot of it - the whole flower looks better!)


By the way Sandra the one I had marked Sammy russell is Hyperion. A new bloom opened today and it definitely has a very sweet smell.

Charlotte---I don't think I have ever seen Hebrew Maiden--that is beautiful. Yes it is so much fun to get their pictures and see them bloom. Be sure you add them to a photo sharing site, with their names, like Picasso or Photo Bucket. Then if you lose tags, you will have a permanent record to search--it will also help if you date it--but sometimes if you move then around they won't bloom close to the same date. I have Condillia but it is in the shade and it has just now put up a scape, where yours is already blooming.
I am having a lot of splotchy blooms open too, they get better as they open.
This is an example--that is why you see so many daylily people label theris FFO--first flower open, because we know it is going to get better !
This is Jay Thurman FFO

Sandra thanks for the information. I see what you're talking about with FFO. I have some that the first flower was not nearly as pretty as the ones to follow. Yes I do need to get them in Piscasso!

Ripley, MS

Just trying to keep you from making some mistakes that I did--LOL--it is a job trying to keep the right names on everything, no matter what system you use.

Sandra, I think your red spider might be Long Stocking. Do you remember acquiring that one?

Charlotte, I love Palace Garden and SC Behavior Pattern!

This is my most amazing daylily so far. Everytime I walk upon it, it just takes my breath away.

Red Eyed Fantasy

I love the doubles. Here's Bogie and Bacall which I adore. It always reminds me of a kiss--perhaps it's those lipstick stains.

I have a double called Well All Right that never doubles for me. It has a huge pink bloom but it's really nothing spectacular. If I don't get doubles this year, it's outta here. I'm just not going to have a lazy freeloader in my gardens!

No I don't have Long Stocking that I know of--this is just one fan, and it may have been one of the ones that I brought home from Cindy's last fall with lost names on them. It is beautiful, whatever it is, I think it will probably measure 10" at least

Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

Nancy Ann your Red Eyed Fantasy is a stunning day lily!

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

Summer is here, and I can tell I don't want to go outside to take pictures. it's HOT beautiful daylilies everybody.

Charlotte, I love all your daylilys! You really picked some beautiful ones to start your collection! Love that Codillia and the Spacecoast one!

KA - your yard must be totally amazing! So many beautiful blooms! I am going to be kicking myself for not making it this weekend........

That Red Eyed Fantasy is beautiful.... never heard of it before - and I like the Bogie and Bacall too......

Headed home now to check out what is blooming!

Laceys Spring, AL(Zone 7a)

Boy, ya'll really started out things with a beautiful bang! Love all of them, but I particularly liked Bogie and Bacall.

I hope a question or 2 isn't too off-topic here, but I need some ideas for what to do with Lavender. I have a good crop this year, which is weird because it's been so wet.

Also, my sweet basil looks pitiful and is dropping leaves. Looks like it may indeed be too wet. Anyone else having a few problems like this? Everything else looks great...I picked my first cukes today and have picked 4 squash in the last couple of days. I also ordered a couple of those $3.50 'Bama Music' daylilies today. Thanks KA for the link to that site. Or maybe I should say darn you for making me buy more plants, LOL!!

Camden, AR(Zone 8a)

LOL Elaine..... there are a LOT of enablers on here!! I didn't DARE click on that site she gave you for fear I would be buying more daylilies too!


Genna

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

you need to go to that sight Genna, gallon pots of daylilies for 3 to 5.00

LOL am I twistin gyour legs? I bought hostas on that site. 4 of them. and a couple other things.

Ripley, MS

Lavender can be made into sachets, for your closet or drawers. You can get the little gauze bags at Wal-Mart in the craft dept.
I love lavender, it is my favorite scent from the garden !
