Now that it's dark, some time to catch up on the 2013 daylily bloom.
I keep a patch of the common "ditch lilies" in the yard to remember where all these highfalutin hybrids came from. The origins or modern markings a edges are all there. It just took many years of hybridizing to isolate and exaggerate them.
