When it comes to daylilies, it seems that you either hate 'em or love 'em. Okay, so this is one plant that you can both love AND hate, depending on the season. Honestly, how can you not love the myriad of colors and forms that these easy perennials come in? When they're in bloom, they can be absolutely breath-taking, complete with fragrances that range from subtle to intoxicating. Some aren't fragrant at all, but each has something positive to bring to the garden palette.
I've got exactly 50 different daylilies here and I imagine I'll acquire a few more over time. There are a couple that I'd like to take out for various reasons. Some have that awful issue of yellowing foliage once they've bloomed and I hate that. A couple of them aren't that outstanding in color or form and they don't hold up well when it rains, so I think that out they'll go. With over 60,000 different daylilies out there, I don't need ones that have "issues."
Here are some of the daylilies that have bloomed or are blooming at Our Little Acre:
|'Hush Little Baby'|
|'Siloam Double Classic'|
|'When I Dream'|
And my very own, that I registered and named (and Lana Wolfe hybridized):
