The beauty in daylilies comes from the endless variety of colors and also the ease in growing this magnificent flower. Check out my favorite catalog for ordering daylilies. You won't be disappointed in the photos and wonderful information on growing.
It's hard to believe that anything so beautiful, only last for one day. As the day gets brighter, the new lily bloom begins to open. By the end of day, the life of this particular flower is over.
But the good news is how prolific they are in growing flowers. As you can see in this photo, they have started blooming before I've had time to mulch for the season.
This particular variety is a bright tangerine color, with petals that curl back.
Many of the pink, reds and purples will be blooming later in May......

Hello Elna...thank you. I love the clown photo you posted today on your blog.Delete
You have wonderful flowers in your beautiful garden. But dear Meggie I must say that you are a very good photographer. All your closer flower photos are bright and clear. And colors are perfect. When I tried to take a closer photo of flowers, my photos are never seem like your photos. Really congratulations and all best wishes...ReplyDelete
Thank you, Beck....Be sure and show your mother the daylilies. It probably is your settings on your camera that is the problem. Loved your puppy post today!Delete

My lilies have come up, but far from budding. These would be beautiful in paper! XOXOReplyDelete
Hi Susan...mine are beginning to bloom because we had very little winter this year. I just bought your book, "Paper Bouquet". You have so many gifts, Susan. What a wonderful book on the art of paper flowers!Delete
Beautiful blooms in a beautiful colour. Tangerine is such a cheerful colour!ReplyDelete
Hello Elaine...Yes, tangerine is a cheeful color. It also reminds me of tangerine sherbet!Delete
Day lillies are so pretty arent they? We have got a small clump but they do flower for quite a long time even if the individual blooms only last one day.ReplyDelete
Hello Anne...I thought everyone would enjoy the color. By the way, what a wonderful post today about St. Cuthbert Gospel. I plan on reading it again this evening.Delete
Hi Meggie, it seems too beautiful to only last one day. I've never heard of day lillies before xxxReplyDelete
Hello Emma....they are very common in Texas. I'm not sure where else they grow, but they can be spectacular when in bloom.Delete
So pretty. My oldest son gave me day lillies for mother's day one year.... they are one of my favorite blooms. Your photos are beautiful. Spring is still rather winter-like here on our homestead, in fact it is raining / snowing as I type!ReplyDelete
Have a lovely day.
