How about hot colors to match the hot temperatures? I even have a garden bed that features daylilies that are in the hot range of colors. Citrix daylily is a great plant. Opens easily, high bud count and overwintered very well. It even increased for me.
For those of you who just don’t care for orange daylilies, well I do understand. I once thought why have any more orange daylilies. I guess we all have the image of the road side ditch lilies in mind. When I met this orange daylily, I changed my mind totally. Primal Scream, it really does scream across the garden. It has huge boldly colored blooms and has won several awards in the daylily world. Primal Scream was hybridized by Curt Hanson who is in northeast Ohio. You really have to see it in person to fully appreciate it.
Wizard AT Large, is another great daylily for a hot day.
Lots of hot colors in daylilies to brighten the garden. Next up is Santa’s Little Helper, a smaller bloom with a bold red color, then Brave New World, a red bloom that is 6 plus inches and quite the show off.
Back to Hot Orange/ Yellow Daylilies, Maple Leaf Forever and Spacecoast Shell Cracker are bold looking blooms.
A look at bold daylilies would not be complete without Ruby Spider, a real beacon in the garden measuring 7 to 8 inches across.
Now for an orange kitten to go with the daylilies. This is Babe, he was left on my patio last June. He is growing and has become my new garden helper. Looks like he is dreaming of all his summer adventures to come!
Be sure to add hot blooms of fire to your gardens!
