Yes, they are. I noticed my Purple Prince Lily Tree bulbs just today coming up thru the surface. Heres a photo of the big ditchlily plant from Happ and in the background is the Red Daylily from Pepper. It looks like they each have about 15 flowers coming on.
My second daylily variety to open - I am terrible about keeping the names of varieties I buy so this could be any one of a number of varieties I've added in the last 5 years. Every time I buy a new variety, I find I'm drawn towards the deep yellow colors.
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.
You guys have some nice Daylilies, hopefully I can add a Brecks Purple Prince Lily Tree to the photos soon! Here it is today, getting more purple, but still closed up.
There is 3 Lily Trees in the photo, only one is turning noticeably purple.
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.
If you wanna try the $25 free coupon, rose, you might get a free catalog from Brecks, it might be on there. I'm wondering what Brecks sent me tho. These Purple Prince Lilies don't yet look like the photos they have. They're more like a White/Lavender right now, not the solid purple like I thought. They don't seem to be open all the way either. Maybe they'll do by the photos in a few days.
Brecks talks about "Carpet Border Lilies" - http://brecks.com/category.asp_Q_c_E_129_A_l_E_2_A_g_E_1 . Nice photo there, rose.
Thanks Pepper, I'm glad to see mine aren't the only ones not purple. It's not really a terrible color, but I'm a dark sort and I wanted solid purple, but oh well, pretty blooms anyway!
Here they are recently. -
I made a negative entry in Plantfiles for it and also uploaded a photo from today. I tell you, it's mostly White! Here they are today, 2 of the 3 plants have blooms. - http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/169090
Shortleaf, thanks for the link. I'll check it out. They're still very pretty though. I bought a bunch daylilies from someone and they turned out to be orange when I was expecting pink. I'm digging them up. They just look terrible next to red roses.
