I have a scented yellow one that came as a passalong without a name that has already finished blooming and has made seedpods, and I have a few others that have flower scapes that haven't opened yet. But here's what was blooming this past weekend.
|The label that I buried with this clump said it was 'Double Passion' but it hasn't produced any double flowers -- the color and shape of the petals it has are similar to photos I've seen online though.|
|I don't know the name of this one, but it's a beautiful color and I like the white edge|
|I'm pretty sure this is 'Barbara Mitchell' -- it's always been my favorite pink daylily and was the first one I bought when we moved here|
|This might be 'Pandora's Box' although it's very yellow -- there's a chance it's 'El Desperado'|
|'Entrapment' which in reality is much closer to purple than the color in this photo|
Any -- or all -- of the next three might be 'Strawberry Candy.' I know I have it out there somewhere. But these are all in different growing situations. One is in a pot, one is planted in the ground, and the third is in an uprooted clump that has been set aside for dividing for about a year now. Daylilies are tough plants, and I'm an abusive plant mama.
|This one has a little friend|
Do you have a favorite flower? Daylilies have been a favorite of mine since I was a young girl. I remember telling my mother I loved the orange daylilies that grew everywhere at the side of the road, and she recoiled in disgust, because they were so common. Ever since, they've had a special place in my heart.
