This week I want to share with you these gorgeous lilies. The photos were taken at Merryspring Gardens just a couple of weeks ago. Although daylily bloom time is just about over, I thought the pics would be great for next years perennial garden planning.
Let’s start out with this brilliant red-orange one, “All aboard for Columbus”. This is my favorite color as of late. Going to want this one for sure.
This delightful little number has delicate ruffled edges, so sweet!
This slightly pinker version dances in the sun.
I couldn’t find the name of this one unfortunately, but I had to include it here, bright salmon with glowing yellow interior.
This daylily has another name in addition to “mango glow” but it couldn’t tell what it was. You can’t help but feel the warm glow of the sun, appropriately named.
Another lovely purple/lavender one, quite demure.
And lastly, “Apache war dance”. It wins my award for the most brilliant, striking color!
You might want to pin one of two or these on pinterest. Haven’t gotten into pinterest yet?! Oh, you might want to give it a try, I am sure you’ll be hooked! Here are my boards. Merryspring will no doubt have it’s plant sale next spring, so plan ahead and get there early!
Here’s a link for daylily recipes. I haven’t tried these yet but I sure do love to eat squash flowers. Recipe for those coming next week.
