Driving through town yesterday I noticed signs that said, "Annual Daylily Sale." After lunch, I followed them four miles through a remote part of town to a stunning garden filled with dozens of varieties of day lilies and other amazing plants I'd never seen before, like this:
Rudbeckia Maxima and I can tell you right now I'll be planting this in my garden next year.
But I digress.
Khorassan, Sandra Elizabeth, Mount Zion, Jen Melon and Dun Robin Red Velvet.
Strutter's Ball, a lovely violet day lily.
I was so overwhelmed I forgot to take pictures of the ones I liked so I didn't notice until they were packing them up that I had bought mostly yellow ones. Oh well! The ones I picked are different heights and bloom at different times. And the stunning red ones are very tall and bloom last.
So, you ask, just what does thirteen day lily plants look like and how do you get them home?
Update: after a couple of hours in the garden this morning, I've planted all 13 day lilies around the large landscape rock in the front of the house.
