Well of course I brought home more daylilies in that lavender/ purple color, and even though I only had two spots, I brought home three. My sister in law so kindly looked away as the purple daylilies were dug.:) Best of all, it was a peak bloom day.
Here is Curt, tending to the daylilies. He is always generous with his daylilies and has amazing seedlings growing. I added many more to my wish list.
Just a few of Curt’s wonderous daylilies that I added to my wish list
One for Steve.
The ones that came home with me:Sins of Omissions, Unfolding Paradox, and Freudian Slip
I can justify each one!! I had tried to get Unfolding Paradox for years, but every time I went to Curt’s gardens, he had the thing tagged up due to making crosses with it, so it was not for sale.
Well, Freudian Slip was needed for the name, and Sins of Omission, a very nice smokey purple with an orchid watermark!!!
Besides, Bowie approved of each new addition, and helped me pick out prime spots! I had to do some rearranging, and one older daylily was moved across the street to the field so everyone was planted.
I see a lot of grass in this picture. It is the largest area of grass that I have, but unfortunately there are huge tree roots under this area. I know, I have tried to dig it!
Happy Gardening, and Happy End of July!!
