I know you will have fun.
Karen I am pretty sure that is one of the daylilies I brought to Kim's. Sandra Terrye and Ruth came down to help me thin out, dig and label the daylilies. I had many beautiful noids that I gave away. These are some of the noids we dug into but I don't know who got what because there was just too much to label.

But I'll be there for sure tomorrow. I've carried everything out front to load in the car. And I'm making the food now.

I got Night Embers for my niece, whose name is Ember. When I got it, I told her that when she bought her first house, I'd give her a start of it since it's her namesake. She scrunched up her face and said, "Aunt Nancy, you know I don't garden." Well, she bought her first house this past fall. And she popped in this spring and said, "Do you remember that plant named after me that you said I could have when I got a house?" So I gave her a piece of it along with some other plants--not many, just a few easy ones for her. I offered her more a couple weeks ago and she said, "Oh no! It wore me out just planting those you gave me before!" LOL

There is my Arundo Donax Variegata that is amazing. It's best time is spring when the foliage is very white. As the heat of summer comes on, it becomes a pale green and looks more like bamboo. It makes bamboo canes too which I'm using to stake my tomatoes this year. It will get 10 or 12 ft tall or more.

Loving all the pics and I agree we seem to neglect other blooms when the daylilies are bursting open. I saw on here somewhere that they were having trouble taking the pictures and writing down names to post with them. What I do is much easier. I take a picture of the bloom then take a picture of the name tag. Of course this only works if you have tags for them.LOL A lot I don't anymore.

This is one of the prettiest blooms to me

That's what I do too, take a picture of the tags. If I don't have a tag, I name it "NOID #??" and stick blue masking tape on the stem with the NOID # on it and take a picture of that. Then when I ID it, I can put the correct tag with the plant.

Yesterday I noticed that my So Lovely had an unusual bloom among it--a beautiful bloom. Today I noticed that my Forest Phantom had the same bloom and had a white bloom in it too. Somehow I must have planted the two together and they ran together and when I divided them, I ended up with two mixed clumps. Today I used my blue masking tape to label each scape individually so I can separate them later.

If you use masking tape, I must warn you that wasps will shred them for their nests. So at the end of summer, you may notice half the tape chewed off. Check the tape labels from time to time to see if you need to relabel.

My plants are now big enough to produce loads of blooms on one clump. So it's very exciting this year to see the daylilies bloom. Here's Border Music singing a beautiful song!

I posted in the iris forum for some id's on some of my japanese iris, and asked about fortune and Geisha girl. Some of you will find this interesting about fortune & geisha girl.

There is no such iris as Fortune or Geisha Girl, so who knows what you would get with those. They are sold all over the net, and I know of one person here on DG who trades Fortune. Here's what I put about Fortune in the Plantfiles.

Negative pollyk On May 17, 2009, pollyk from Hannibal, NY (Zone 6a) wrote:

While the pictures posted are lovely, this is not a registered iris. There has been a big influx of irises from Dutch growers in recent years that were purchased as cast off seedlings from Japanese iris growers in Japan. These irises were given names such as Fortune, Imperial Magic, Pink Lady, etc. Most are different forms, some nice, some not. These are not sold by true iris growers, but by the businesses that sell everything and just give it any name. Do not trade or pass along this iris as Fortune.

A pretty orange Cindy. Yes it is still so exciting to go out and see the new blooms. I still have some that haven't opened yet so my fun is going to continue for a while. My neighbors are really enjoying them also. It's funny how sprucing up the yard is contagious. Everybody watched me change the front bed last year and kept coming over to check the progress. Then another neighbor decided she needed to make her front look better, so she had it re-sodded. My next door neighbor is always coming over to my back yard and I've given him lots of plants and advice.. He has really like my pond so decided he wanted to add a pond to his yard this year. He has been working on his pond for the last week or so and it is going to be a really nice one. Then another neighbor across the street had a big load of sod delivered Sat morning and they re- sodded their yard. It's really nice to see all the fresh pretty lawns.

We sure missed you this week end.

Terrye--I still need a keeper---I left my hen and chick babies you gave me at Kathy Ann's, I have lost my silene seed she gave me too, bummers, maybe you won't hold it against me in light of the Pot Man episode--LOL !

This is what Terrye and I are on the search for. We saw a full grown specimen at the place where the yard sale was. The people there said the land was Larry Lowman's nursery at one time and they had bought it.
It makes a shrub and it was in full bloom and beautiful.

I also bought the baby gold solidago and I don't dare look at his other auctions, i've bought from him before and he sends decent plants.

he has new varieties of things also but was only looking for the two plants. I wanted little lemon solidago but he didn't have that and did have the baby gold which is dwarf also, maybe we can trade our varieties next year terrye.

I think I will wait until fall, I had to water my "pot farm" this afternoon--it is so hot already here. I sure don't need anything else to water right now.
We went to Mammas and Jerry cleared out some blackberry canes that had came up in her place where she dumps her grass after she rakes when the yard has been mowed. He also trimmed some tree limbs out of her driveway for her. I was going to weed her flower bed, but her neighbor Linda, that mows for her had pulled most of the grass out of it. I took her a piece of The Watsonia, that Cindy gave me a couple of years ago, and it had multiplied so bad it did not even bloom this year. I dug the clump up and replanted some of it, probably have 100 little bulbs I brought home with me to bring to the fall swap

Kathy Ann I do like those Spacecoast.

Yes Bonnie I did make my hypertufa herb garden. I covered a sculptured marble bathtub that had been discarded. I do have quite a few pots I have made. Sometime this summer I've got to get busy and make some more. Love that morning blooming plant. I really like the unusual.
The yellow flower is small shrub like plant. I think I bought it as a tropical, that's why I took it in for the winter.

They just decided to grow like that, you know how Yarrow is, it has a mind of it's own, my cerise queen is huge, i'm thinking of pulling half it so I can have more room for something else LOL

Does look neat together doesn t it.

you know my richard nelson use to be right next to the cherise queen, now that patch is gone and it's way over by the lily 6 feet away now. go figure

Jeri, I keep forgetting to ask you about pickerel rush. I think you posted a close-up photo on the last June thread.
For a couple of years I have noticed a clump of something down by the creek that looks a lot like your bloom. Is this considered an invasive?
I hesitate to go down too close to it because I have seen snakes around the creek and the particular location is hard to get to from the road.
If it's not invasive I'd love to have a bit in my pond. I also don't want to see something like that get into our waterways, but it doesn't appear to have grown much in the few years I've seen it.
Thanks,
Elaine

Terrye, I see a few of your daylilies have polyed! (4 petals and 4 sepals instead of the usual 3). My Ebony Pools, pictured below, did that today too. Do you know what makes them do it occasionally?

JoAnn, I Love those crinums!

Crissy, It's Daring Dilemma, not Darling. Great Picture of it. For some, it appears more pink, like the ones on Tinkers. But for me, it has that peach color too. It has a sibling named Daring Deception that looks very similar. Love your pansies! Your purple plant is Perilla, an herb used in Mexican dishes. If you let it reseed, you'll have millions of it next year. A lot of folks mistake it for purple basil, but basil has leaves with more substance.

Yes, I see a few daylilies to add to my wedding garden--Lipstick Ring, SC Fantasy Flight, Bridal Path. I'm adding those to my wish list.

Cindy, I love that seedling! Will you be registering it?

Oh yes, I definitely need Heat of the Moment too. I think my wish list is already bigger than my gardens! I need some non-daylily plants for the wedding garden too. Did I tell you there's a separate room called the Honeymoon Suite? I'm planting any "honey" and "moon" plants back there, like coral honeysuckle, and Goblin Moon daylily. I also want to plant any plant that sounds like a vacation, like my Brazillian Holiday iris. Heat of the Moment would definitely go back there, along with Rushing Delight.

Great daylilies, Kathy! I love those spacecoasts too! My Cool Deal is blooming today as well and I just love it!

Spacecoast Sonata is particularly lovely today.

I love the tall verbena, it really draws the butterflies--the blooms stay on it for weeks too.
I have several smaller ones that need to be pulled out, though-they have put up since I cleaned out the beds early spring, which needs doing again. They have shallow roots and are not hard to pull out. I did not plant any this year, they are all volunteers !!

Crissy, I got that one from Cindy too, but those are in the shade in pots, so I have not seen mine bloom yet. It takes them longer in the shade, all those pots are going into the new lasagna bed this fall, my last bed to build !

What's blooming today? About 100 different daylilies, but I won't bore you with all of them. It will be sad around here when the daylilies are done. As you can see, other than ornamental grasses and a few cannas and hibiscus, I don't have many other perennials. I was so absorbed with daylilies for the last 10 years that I neglected to acquire other plants. This whole side of the yard is primarily daylilies. I'm culling quite a few this year, so I'll replace them with other plants.

Spring is the best time for the arundo. As it gets hotter, the leaves will turn all green. I hate when that happens! It's so pretty when it's striped.

And you know, it's not hard to dig up like bamboo. It has rhizomes like a canna. They're HUGE rhizomes, but they're fairly easy to dig.

Maybe next year I'll be ready to host another garden party and you can see it all in person. All my daylilies started out as double fans, and they've now multiplied enough to make a pretty big splash. I've waited a long time for this! Remember a few years ago when this area was just a weed pit? I wonder if I have a picture of it from back then.

Oh look! This is what it looked like in 2002, before I added the veranda onto that side of the house. I was trying very hard to stay on my side of the property line. See that pole there? It's the property line, about 6 ft from my house. Well, you know by now I moved that property line out about 50 or so feet!

No Sandra. The last two winters have killed almost all of them. I once had about 75 varieties. I now have about 10 varieties left. The toughest ones have been the oldest ones--Florence Vaughn, Richard Wallace, Robert Kemp, etc. I'm going to move them to the back of the garden this year where it's full sun and the soil drains better. That seems to be the best spot for any of my tender perennials. I used to have a canna farm here, didn't I? You couldn't walk thru my garden without seeing cannas everywhere. I need to be just a little further south to grow 'em all again.

I've got to move my crested iris tomorrow. I bought it when we went to Homestead. When I planted it I forgot how much the plant next to it was going to branch out. I just need to move it forward about 10 or 12 inches. Stuff like that.

I'm like y'all, see a bare spot, plop a plant in it. This year I will focus on design and themes. But still, my ultimate goal is to have no bare ground showing anywhere, except on the trails thru the gardens. You know, the more plants your cram in there, the less weeds you'll have, so the less weeding you'll have to do. I do very little weeding in my full beds, but any bare spot of land attracts any fly-over weed.

Here's Sammie Russell which basically looks like Crimson Pirate but is more red and starts to bloom a bit later.

Charlotte your beds are beautiful . That entrance just draws me into your garden.
Sandra You know I wish I could be there sitting in the shade looking at all those blooms. I need to do mine in Picasa Album so you can see what you would like to have of mine. Did you ever find Applique? I really have missed that one. I came out alright after the flood , I have plenty of blooms to look upon.


Nancy Ann ,You asked about the lily that was my seedling. No I don''t intend to register any of them. I grow from seed for the fun of it.

Nancy Ann I think you have me and Chrissy confused. Chrissy is chrissy and I'm Charlotte - cperdue. Thanks for the compliment on the gardens.

Karen I don't have to water the pots everyday. I have a really good irrigation system designed for the plants - not grass. I have to water my hanging pots and my big pots on the deck I have to water every 2 or 3 days. The pots on my deck actually get some water with the system but they don't get quite enough to keep me from having to water them. Not sure what the fern is - I think a Southern Shield fern. I've had it a long time. I don't even remember where I got it.

Cindy, I have not moved the pots yet looking for it, if I do have it, it is in a pot out there in the "Pot Farm"---however--it was blooming at Bonnie's Sat morning and I asked her if I could not find it here to share with you, and she said she would-I know why you love it-it was beautiful in her bed. It is not on my list of new daylilies from 09, but I could have missed writing it down
Here is what I have written down--see if you need any of these, as far as I know, the only one I lost of these is Ouachita Beauty

Charlotte - love the tour of your yard !!! Thank you so much for showing it. Absolutely "my kind" of a yard ! You must be some kind of decorator - looks like you have strategically placed all of your plants. I bet your neighbors do really love coming over and taking a stroll thru there.

Nancy Ann- I didn't realize you had so many daylilies !! Very impressive. Looks like an explosion of blooms !

Cindy - remind me after blooming season, and I will dig you an Applique and send it to you.

Cindy my daylilies are going to be getting big enough that I can share with you also. I have a lot of mine on facebook and they are labeled. Still have some to put up. I need to just do a picaso link.

Bonnie, I've been collecting daylilies for years. Became absolutely fascinated with them. I have about 500 varieties currently. But I need to cull out a few to make room for other plants. I really don't like my beds that are full of just daylilies. When they're done, the beds are boring. So I want to squeeze other perennials in there too.

A couple of ladies came by yesterday to look at some furniture I'm selling and wanted a tour of the gardens. They just oooohed and aaaaahed. They'd never seen any of these varieties and didn't even know there were double daylilies. They wanted to buy some, but most of the ones they wanted are my newer ones with only a handful of fans. I won't divide them until I have 20 or more fans.

After looking at everyone else's pictures, I've found more daylilies I want. But I'll have to get rid of more older varieties to get newer ones. I'm finding that names really matter to me this year. I want particular names to suit the themes of my gardens, like love-themed daylilies for my wedding garden, food-named daylilies for my edible garden, etc.

You must be pretty organized NA to have a "purpose" of your areas. lol. Mine is sooooo hodge-podge - everywhere you look. No rhyme or reason for any of mine. The other day my DGD was walking down the pathway and said "meemaw - this is like a jungle" as she was swatting things to get out of her way so she could walk. lol.

Bonnie know what you mean about a "jungle". Several years ago my DH had some guys over helping do something and that was their comment "boy she sure goes for the jungle look".

People say that about my place too. Usually I have bananas, gingers, and cannas all in our faces. But winter killed a lot of them this past season.

I haven't been organized. For 12 years, I've just stuck things where I had a bare spot. Last year, the plan for themed gardens really began as I noticed many of my plants had common themes. This spring, I built a gazebo, arbors and pergolas throughout my gardens and will reorganize the themed gardens around them. Which means I'll be digging up almost ALL my plants. I've been giving away tons of stuff so I don't have to bother with it again. I want to keep only the most fabulous. If it doesn't totally wow me, it's outta here. There are so many more plants that do wow me so I'll move them in once I get everything reorganized.

Ooooh, Karen (Kjuddy)! I've got somebody here who wants to meet you. I'm going to dig her up in a few weeks and move her to the wedding garden. If you can name her, I'll send you a DF of her when I move her. I think you'll recognize her, as you keep acquiring her but getting a mislabeled plant instead. She'd very much like to come over and wow you next year.

Nancy that would be the elusive 'fairy tale pink' the one I thought was growing in my sun bed all along. I'd appreciate a fan if you are digging her up. I'm still trying to figure out who I really have but no luck I guess that one will just be a noid from now on.

It might just be a random seedling from something. It may not have a name. But if you'll dmail your addy, in a few weeks when I dig up FTP, I'll send you the real McCoy. She is definitely one you don't want to miss. Even tho she's old, I think I'll always keep her in my gardens. She'll be great in the wedding garden, don't you think--a fairy tale ending for her. LOL
