Hemerocallis

Daylily

Named for the fleeting nature of their 6-petaled trumpetlike blossoms, Daylilies are hardy and easy to grow. Their strap-shaped leaves arch gracefully to form clumps of brilliant green. The buds and flowers are considered a delicacy by the Chinese, who enjoy them fresh or wilted in salads. Our selections are deciduous.

Chocolate-brown tipped buds open early into marigold orange-colored flowers above a low growing clump whose narrow, grassy green blades look ornamental even on their own.

Delivering a delightfully bright and fragrant performance in the garden or a bouquet, the broad, six-petaled blooms are held in dense clusters by blunt, cupped bracts. This northeast Asian native acquiesces to dry conditions once established and enlivens the rock garden or a pathway’s edge.

Blooms May–June.

Size: 2' 0" high x 18" wide. Zone 3/4.

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
