A Few Summer "Bulbs"

My Joan Senior daylilies are starting to rebloom. This is a wonderful variety of daylily to grow. It has some fragrance, which is unusual for daylilies, and it reblooms. Not to mention that cream color that is so attractive.

I just recently planted some Bengal Tiger cannas. I love them for their striped foliage. I don't even care if they bloom or not. Also notice the red edging around the leaves.

This last is another spike of fragrant tuberose. I cannot tell you how well these have thrived in my Louisiana weather.

Maybe there's still hope for my Joan Senior to bloom for the first time. Many of my daylilies have been shy re-bloomers this year, too.

I need to make a note to buy tuberose bulbs next spring. They're an old-fashioned flower that is a delight.
