|'Mulberry Frosted Edge'|
ProfessorRoush was writing a clever post this morning, but, halfway through the piece, just stopped. How can I wax philosophical when there are so many beautiful daylilies out there to post?
I mean, of course, "within the last 25 years or so." Vintage daylilies, like 'Vintage Wine'.
I don't need to buy the newest and fanciest, even if they seem to be named after video game characters.
Or the plain old, butter-yellows; Big Rex is 5" across each bloom. And pure and beautiful, eye-catching across the garden.
And 'Timbercreek Ace' makes a great display, whether you're looking at the whole plant covered with potential, or each individual bloom. Deep, dark and brooding, I'm always thankful to the client who gave him to me.
But, really, how can one resist 'Popcorn Pete'? This one is my favorite of the newest in my garden. That royal purple front and the white/yellow edges are to die for.
And the ladies, slender or not, are always beautiful. I've had a thing going for spider daylilies recently.
I'll leave you drooling over daylilies while the Kansas sun sets behind a small storm front. Which, of course, unfortunately didn't bring any rain to create more daylilies.
