Daylilies - The Best of the Rest
I'm putting in this post the rest of my daylilies that have bloomed thus far. Above is one I just planted this year and it made only one bloom. I expect much more from it next year once it has grown more. It's called Little Deek and is a deep, golden yellow variety. I didn't have any yellows and wanted to get Buttered Popcorn. However, the place where I went to get it didn't have Buttered Popcorn and suggested this variety as a reasonable alternative. We'll see.
This is another unknown daylily that I have. I used to think it was Strawberry Candy, but when I compared it to the real thing it was obvious that it's another variety. It's a darker shade than my Strawberry Candy. Still, this is one of my best performing daylilies and it always puts on a great show.
This last is a pink daylily that I don't know the name of either. The pink fades quickly in the sun and is hard to capture well with my cheap camera. This is a nice daylily, but isn't as vigorous as some of my others. I may move it to a more favorable location this fall.
