Daylily Update July 6th

Today was the first time in a long, long time, without another commitment AND without rain so lots of work in the garden was done!  The weeds were, and still are, in 80% of the garden, enormous.

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.

Here are some of the results blooming at Diamond Rise now:
