I've been watching the posts from the warmer zones and eagerly waiting for the daylilies to begin in my garden. Well, we're close...
Daylilies are close to blooming!
Some of mine are blooming, and a lot of them have buds... should be any day now.
Since I have more shade mine will be later but my Asiatics and Orientals are starting to bloom. I have 3 so far blooming. Mambo, Blackout and a yellow.
I love the red daylily - I have a couple reds, but nothing close to blooming this early.
I have new pics of mine. Need to download them. They are finally starting their full glory.
Those are some pretty pics of Daylilies up there. I hope my Purple Prince Lily Tree flowers are as nice. I think any day now, they might have a few flowers, not bad for the first year I guess!
I hope they don't mind being in about 3 inches of soil for now in they're pots! I got a place all picked out for them, hopefully I'll get them planted there soon.
Thank goodness! I'm not the only gardener who doesn't hang a tag on everything they plant! I used to put galvanized tin tags on things, but I couldn't find a marker that would last more than a few months and I kept tripping over the wires when I got into the beds to pull weeds so I tossed all of them. Here's a white variety that I love.
I have a white one that I think is called Sunday Morning. One of my favs. For some reason I've always remembered that name. lol
They are alll so beautiful. I love the red ones. I had an idea to put tall purple daylilies in a border but not sure what kind. Any recommendations?
Hi rose, I can only suggest one purple one, like mine, a Purple Prince Lily Tree. Mine is maybe halfway open and not as purple yet as I'd hoped, maybe it'll get more purple yet. I was thinking maybe Brecks had accidently sent me a different one, but I think that is the right one, just maybe premature yet. I got the 3 bulbs, (with shipping) for $2.94 with a "FREE" $25 coupon from them. Actually, they sent me and my housemate coupons at different times and said I could use them both at this address. In the Fall I have 3 different Lily Trees from them coming for $2.94 total. The 3 bulbs alone are $19.99 usually.
Brecks has a few Lily Trees, they have put down the claim on hybidizing them or something.- http://brecks.com/category.asp_Q_c_E_128_A_l_E_2_A_g_E_1
Lily Trees flowers are big, they say 8", I believe it, mine are big too. If its straight and tall that you want, these might work.
Shortleaf, I'll check out Brecks. I have ordered from them before. I have lilies all over the place - daylilies and the other kinds. I mixed them up everywhere and they look beautiful but now I'm thinking a border along the garage of just one kind might stand out more. The only problem is I might start out with one species and then I can't help by adding this or that. That's how I ended up with my crazy garden.
