Constant Renewal

img_1661What a concept, constant renewal, who wouldn’t want that?   It is part of the reason that I enjoy the daylilies.  Every day is a renewal of the garden, with a different look. The one above is Cloaking Device.  If it has a name related to the Star Trek series, then it is likely a Hanson daylily.

The garden changes every day, with something to look forward to each day.

img_1667There are so many colors, and forms, there has to be a daylily out there for everyone.  At first I preferred the dark eyed daylilies, then I had a phase during which I looked for eyed daylilies that had a pattern.  There are many.  Marseilles Watercolor is an early bloomer with a great patterned eye.


Barcode, another patterned eye.


Aztec Headdress


Citrix was obtained during my orange phase.


Of course there is Pumpkin Kid.


Every morning there are new ones open for the first time.   It works out well when they pose with their label.


The bottle tree remains the same every day.


Spring Garden Greetings


White Knuckle Ride , what a surprise this morning.


Another version of Ruby Spider. in a poly form,  it looks like a star.  I checked behind the bloom and it doesn’t appear to be a fused bud.  A new Ruby Spider for today that will be gone tomorrow.  I checked the buds and it appears that several will bloom in the poly form.


img_1685Above is Man Points,  this is a huge bloom from Dan Hansen.   It really stands out in the garden.

Of course there are the diminutive daylilies  that are quite wonderful.  This is Plum Cupcake,  a heavy bloomer.


Tomorrow will be another renewed garden. This is my favorite place to renew.


Happy Gardening.

    Glorious!! Do any just not bloom in any year? Do you divide often? Anyway, you have a spectacular show that’s for sure!

    • I do have some that will take a year off. A few will surprise me and not bloom when they have always bloomed before. I really never know why they take time off. If one does it consistently, then I move it. So far this year I have about a dozen that are not showing any buds. I don’t really divide often, it really depends as some will increase more rapidly than others. Some I will divide every 4 years or so, and then I have some that I have never divided. Thanks for the nice comment.

    How beautiful it all is. I love day lilies too, but only have a few, so it’s nice to see your wide variety. The little landing is a delight. It must be so restful to sit there on a hot day. Is the lake part of your garden?

    Don’t you just love going out each day and seeing what’s blooming, it’s like Christmas morning everyday. I also have several not showing buds this year, don’t know why that happens either. I love your dock with the pergola over it, must be beautiful at night sitting there looking at the lake. My grandparents had a cottage there when I was small and loved spending time with my grandpa on the boat fishing, lots of good memories. I love seeing your different lilies please keep showing us.

    When someone else recently showed a few pictured of daylilies it reminded me of how unpopular they are. I really can not figure out why. They naturally do so well in our climate. I can only figure that some think of them as too common, although they are not really as common as other perennials.
