Annual Day Lily Post
Above, I think this is a seedling cross of 'Butterscotch Ruffles' and 'Elizabeth Salter'.
In this garden the Hemerocallis flowers commence just as the first flush of roses completes. I could not have planned that better--how clever I would be if I actually had planned it.
It is a let down when the April roses are all dead-headed and left to prepare for round two in late May--it feels like the Spring party is over. But when the daylillies start to bloom, the party isn't over at all. It continues.
The exquisite little 'Janice Brown':
'Space Coast Starburst':
And when the Hemerocallis take a break, the roses are ready to bloom again. How cool is that?
