To my wonderful friends who've gotten to know me through this blog, you know that I am emphatically in love with daylilies! So I'm dedicating this Fertilizer Friday post to my favorite bloom. Each clump is lovingly tended to with magic blue crystals and daily whispers of love...yes, sad, but true..lol! Don't you talk to your plants? These are just a few from my growing collection.
Miracle-Gro does wonders...me thinks! An example is the amazing growth on this 'Wineberry Candy'. With 7-way branching and endless buds... this is how she blooms everyday for weeks!
'Siloam Double Classic'..
First bloom on 'Catherine Neal' yesterday. Those who love Bela Lugosi...this one is even darker!
'Love Those Eyes' is a great name for this vibrant combination.
''Moonlit Masquerade'...I love the scape height on this and the dark contrasting eye...new this year but surely becoming a...you said it..favorite! 'Elizabeth Salter'...I'm amazed at how huge these blooms are.
A pass-along from Renee, is 'Glowing Delight'. Strutting her stuff...'Strutter's Ball'! Opens in a rich, deep burgundy and holds her color pretty well throughout the day. Late afternoon...
Also two views of 'Chance Encounter'...
A new addition last fall, 'Night Embers' has stolen my heart! Bud count not as high as I'd hoped but with only 2 young fans, the blooms are breath-taking. Not shown clear here, but there's a white edge around the ruffled petals. And living up to her name...'Bright Sunset' rounds off the list today.
Hopefully, the rain forecast for tomorrow will be accurate. It would be nice to take a break from the daily watering. Enjoy your weekend!
