Yes, We Have Daylilies

A few days ago I posted a bunch of photos of daylilies seen at a local nursery. We purchased some that day, but we already had a few in our garden. Without further ado, here they all are — both old and new!

Mystery Daylily.

This plant was a freebie throw-in last year when we bought several others (ie the next three photos). Since no one knew the name and therefore the colour, I planted it in a spot by itself far from the madding crowd. Bright yellow, it really stands out.

 

Ever So Ruffled

Named appropriately, Ever So Ruffled has a spot in the back garden next to Julius Caesar (next photo).

 

Julius Caesar

All hail to Julius Caesar!

 

Pappa's Pride

This is Pappa's Pride. We have two of these in the front garden.

 

Allison's Wedding

When several flowers didn't come back this year and we had a gap next to Pappa's Pride, I didn't quite know what to do. Eventually, I decided to fill it with daylilies. Cuppa helped me to pick out Allison's Wedding which she thought would go well with Pappa's Pride. I think this may be the most ornate of our daylilies, as well it should be at its rather prodigious price. Weddings are expensive in any form, it seems.

 

Bathsheeba

Next to Allison's Wedding on the other side (from Pappa's Pride), we've planted Bathsheeba. We think the colour works fairly well with Allison, and being a little shorter, it gives us some variation in height.

 

Sabra Salina

Finally, next to Bathsheeba stands the complementary but even the even shorter Sabra Salina.

Along with that tenacious common orange variety, I should think that we’re well set for daylilies and perhaps would do well to concentrate on different flowers in future. 🙂

    Love Di ♥

  4. AC, you have a very colorful daylily assortment and most impressive that you also know all the names. Ours have names as well, but darned if I know them all, insrtead I use the descriptive terms of yellow daylily, purple daylily, etc. Yes, we also have lots of those orange ones as well which are beautiful as well.
