The daylilies are finally providing summer color after being set back by the unusually cool Spring weather. Although I missed having the earlier bloom, I will enjoy having the blooms around longer than usual - some of them up to two weeks later.
After many years of planting seeds from my own crosses, I am enjoying many wonderful new creations of my own. It is exciting to be there when the first blossom opens. This one is an unusual form with petals that twist and curl. The flowers on plants created in our area seem to be better suited for our weather conditions, opening well and having better color after cool nights.
