Another-this shows up almost black-Mephistopheles, very misleading here.

I have some of your choices too! Who can have enough of them? Why don't they make some that last longer! They need a beach umbrella in the high heat for sure!

jmchab, lovely, lovely daylilies. I have Strawberry Candy--mine are a deeper color, but I wonder how they would photograph. I love the deep red eye. You have the same problem with your pic of your Mephistopheles that I had with my Bela Lugosi--the deep colors do not photograph well. The flowers are gorgeous. Is that feverfew that I see in one of the pics? I have to tear mine out since they quickly invade every bed! I also get frustrated with posting one pic at a time. Thanks so much for posting your daylilies, it's a treat!

Jan, love your daylilies.........all of them!

As for posting the pictures....you can join photobucket - it's a storage place. I use it sometimes, but it's aggravating. They changed it (I think it's called improving) and it doesn't work as well for me now. I'm sure it's them and not me, right? Old dogs and new habits you know. anyway, you can post as many pictures as you wish - you copy the URL and paste it into the body of your post, and repeat the process until you're finished. When you hit post now, all of the pictures will show up in one post.

My Strawberry Candy was a gorgeous salmon and coral with a bright red eye this morning but it photographed very pale. Red Skeletons is a better pic.

I have never grown day lilies - thanks for sharing yours.


Summers are just this side of hell, but you don't have to shovel sunshine...

What stunning flowers!
You seem to have a purple theme going with them. Coincidence?

(OT question about the photobucket method of posting pics... Is it only photobucket that works? I already have a flickr account. Would it work the same way?)

I wondered that too, nettiejay. I use Picasso. It would be so much easier if we could just "send" them here. Smile

Beautiful!

I've decided that next year I'm planting tons of various bulbs. I saw someone's yard near my home that had like six or seven varieties all blooming at the same time and it was breathtaking!

Wanda, Daylilies aren't bulbs. Asiatic/oriental ones are. Just FYI.

What great eye candy!!
Also learned something too I thought daylilies were bulbs. I had them in my very first house and they had taken over the yard. Dug them all out they kept coming back and swore never to have any!! Seemed really invasive! they were a orangeish color.

Yeah, I think those were probably what the old-timers refer to as "ditch lilies" or "tiger lilies". That's all people had when I was little (in the 50s). They're very aggressive plants. These hybrids are soooo much prettier.

Love all the colorful day lilies!

SB, nettie is likely right. I just found some last fall across the road and mine will be planted in our ditch...in hopes of pushing out some of those weeds there.
Most of the nursery day lilies are not in the least invasive. They will spread a little but not a whole lot. Some do have a larger fiberous root and others don't...just depends on the variety.
