Daylilies Galore

For those of us that LOVE the genus Hemerocallis...we look forward to the month of July. It's peak bloom time in my zone 6 garden, and this year the display is spectacular! I've spent a fortune on sprays to keep the deer at daylilies are on their list of top 3 goodies. But, still...there are mornings when I'm out mush-mummy-ing and just break down in tears when scapes are stripped bare.

Like this beautiful clump of Scarlet Orbit under my garden sign. The morning after this photo was taken (thank goodness!), nothing but naked stems! Makes me soo mad!

Love this Dallas Star! Courtesy of friend, George, the Vermont Gardener (see side link)

I've only collected a few spider forms...this is Peacock Ribbon

The ever popular Bela Lugosi

Wineberry Candy~one of my faves! It's been blooming like this everyday for the past two weeks...from just one clump!

Mid-July and pansies are still in bloom! That's Blackberry Candy above

Bright up to it's name

Pure and Simple...another fave

A centerpiece that will last but a day...

Packing up again and this time, heading off to the Happiest Place on Earth!
I'm sure there will be pictures of Disney gardens coming soon. Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. So I said to myself as I clicked, "If this blog doesn't label her daylilies I will not comment nor pick." Pleasant surprise!

  2. Lynn your lilies are just gorgeous. I love them all. Bela Lugosi is just the prettiest lily. Have a fun time at Disney!

  3. Beautiful lilies! The "Candy" varieties are so sturdy and prolific bloomers! I have 'Strawberry Candy' and 'Custard Candy.' :-) Thank you!

  4. A woman after my own heart. Just moved last week to a new home and had to split 7 varieties to bring along with me. They're settling into their new garden beautifully. Am just starting to find my way around my new town and found an amazing little nursery - couldn't resist the "Strawberry Candy", so now we're up to 8 varieties.

  5. Thank you, ladies! Glad you enjoyed the pics.

    Congrats on your new nest, Heather. It wont be long before your collection runs into the 3 digits...I'm almost there at! And, yes, I know them all by name! That's part of the fun ;D

  6. Wineberry Candy, one of my favorite among all types of plants, It's been blooming everyday for the past two weeks. Your plantation is gorgeous.


Go ahead.
Make My Day.
