Good morning everyone! I’m still half asleep so it I have typos please excuse them. Jamie and I will be out the door shortly to go visit Phillip and Michael from Dirt Therapy. I understand the Hydrangeas are looking great up there so we don’t want to miss that. I never tire of visiting Phillip’s Garden.
I thought I would show you some more of our Daylilies, I think at this point we have covered about 2/3 of them. We bought what we believed to be ‘Custard Candy’ a couple of years ago and ended up with some really strange orange daylily. I couldn’t even begin to describe the color to you. Well we saw the real ‘Custard Candy’ a couple of weeks ago and decided since it’s been in our plant inventory for so long we might as well really add it.
We have had several surprises in the garden when it comes to the daylilies, ‘Strawberry Candy is a good example. It’s one of four lilies we have that were two different colors when we bought them. I’ve made it a point to tie around the different fans so we can divide the colors this fall. I Googled ‘Strawberry Candy’ and both of the colors are listed under that name in just about equal numbers. I guess we’ll call them SC1 and SC2.
If I had to pick a favorite color for the ones we have in our collection right now ‘Grape Ripples’ would be it. It’s such a beautiful color. I wouldn’t mind having an entire bed of nothing but these.
'Sound of Silence'
When we bought this one is was simply named ‘Violetta’. But I believe is ‘Violetta Mondrian’
‘Little Missy’ was the second Daylily I purchased in our collection. So it will always have a special place in my heart. I was just starting to get interested in gardening when I got this.
