daylilies…they’re not just orange or yellow

I have lost track of the number of people who have walked through our garden and then said, “I thought daylilies only came in orange or yellow!” Here’s proof they come in many colors…

Let’s start with a beautiful white one with a lovely green throat.
‘Gentle Shepherd’

‘Jungle Beauty’ is one of my favorite “near black” daylilies.

‘Apple Tart’ This flower seems to glow with red.

A darker lavender is ‘Hundredth Anniversary.’

Do you like ruffles? ‘Accent on Style’

More Ruffles…’Ivory Edges.’

Does a two-tone effect float your boat? ‘Thumbprint’


Or a double flower? ‘Amy Michelle’

Or a gorgeous eye? ‘Wineberry Candy’

Daylily 'Nefertiti'

That barely scrapes the surface. But daylilies are beautiful in any shade. Even orange and yellow!

If you’re local, come by Wednesday, June 29, 10:00-2:00 for our daylily sale. You can stroll through and pick out what you like or look at my flickr pictures and make a shopping list. Send it any time between now and the sale, and Russell can dig your order and call you for pick up or have it waiting here. A few pictured daylilies may not be available. It just depends on how big the clump is.

    Dee, I hope you’ll come by Wednesday or Saturday for plant sales. Russell decided to extend the plant sale to Saturday, in addition to Wednesday. I’ll hold the little church for you, too.
