Super busy lately, but here’s a few daylilies blooming around the yard. (Sorry, I seem to have not labeled them…!)
I bought some daylilies this week from Amador’s sale. I picked out all reblooming semi-evergreen or evergreen.
They are from the top left, Arctic Ruffles (Nocturnal), Chinese Temple Flower (fragrant), Glory in Ruffles (fragrant), Nairobi Night, Elizabeth Salter, Arpeggio, and Royal Saracen.
Lately my obsession is trying to decide on a couple shrubs to put inbetween the roses while the rest of the plants are growing in. I wanted something evergreen and that would grow relatively quick… but would hopefully stay around 4X4 to 5X5 (or tolerate pruning to keep it to size).
My top three are
Coleonema Sunset Gold (top choice)
I really like the color,… how fluffy/airy it looks and it’ll probably bloom almost year round according to various reports? Only negative is that it might eventually start to get too big. I can prune it, but it’s not quite as pretty when it’s pruned.
Myrtis Communis Compacta
This one is really easily prunable… but I find the foliage a little boring perhaps…? (It’s just you see these all over as hedges). But maybe if I pruned it in a round shape, I’d like it a lot? (Probably flowers only in spring) It’s a good color though and probably the safest of all three choices because of how easy it takes pruning.
My mom gave me these rainlilies from her yard, I didn’t know if they’d survive, but they did, and they bloomed! I adore this kind of flower, they’re like magic.
I didn’t plant this white yarrow or these yellow flowers… I think they are babies from some of the wildflower seed packs I planted last year, but not that many of those came up! I figure they must like it here if they came up a year later and look happy, so I’ll let them be even though this bright yellow isn’t my favorite color.
a tad too burgundy for my taste, but still lovely. Perhaps her color will change as she matures. This is her first bloom. I just got her this spring from the Daylily Auction.
