Thank you. Am now concentrating on more natives though...Woodchucks are devouring everything. Just notices my purple echinacea chewed to bits.

Jan, what a variety you have........all are gorgeous! I have little grapette, from Dee. It's a sweet little thing isn't it.
Sorry about the woodchuck! Didn't know they ate coneflowers!! Better watch your daylilies too!

Vera, They have never touched the daylilies. Wonder if chippies eat stuff, too.

What a selection you have! Beautiful!
As to things eating day lilies...my mail lady gave me most of the ones I have. I had to go dig them was all. At that time I didn't really have any beds made so I put them all in a "holding area" near the fence with our neighbor w/horses. Well, the horses could reach my "area" when they bent the fence down. Tried to eat some of the day lilies...pulled them right out of the ground...and spit them out. Evidently, they don't taste so good, at least the green part. I know Indians used to roast the tubers & eat them...many years ago. I think they also sort of grated the tubers & added those gratings to things too...maybe to thicken?...can't remember for sure.

Mine are popping & have the same ones! I have a few more pink clumps tho! :>) The heat is so hard on them. I wish I had put more in part shade. Do you Jan?

Oooh my favorites of those are the Katooes Rose and Avante Garde. All are beautiful though. Just love daylilies!
Is that right "katooes rose?" I googled it but couldn't find it.This message has been edited. Last edited by: theoriginalfluffy,

Muddy, Some are in shade. It does protect the darker colors from fading out. They are all over the yard. Small yard could only support about 50 or so. Then they all started to look like ones I already had.

They all are very pretty but that Lil Grapette is the best!!
