Daylilies: Part 2

Some close ups of the daylilies in my yard. I’m still working on the identification part, so if I have something wrong, or you know what I can’t find yet, please let me know!
I realized that part of my identification problem was thinking that the daylily was the wrong color. For example, the Catherine Woodbury. I searched for the longest time under peach daylilies, but it wasn’t until I searched for all tall, traditional bloom types that it popped up. They were under lavender, so I went back out and sure enough, there’s the lavender. As the flowers are fading it becomes even more striking. I’m trying to use that trick with the 2 species that I’m still not sure of.

Now that I’ve spent some time studying the daylilies in my own yard, I’ve been noticing all the different daylilies around me. In the neighborhood, parking lots, storefront gardens–I’m surprised at all the varieties that I never noticed before.

  1. I love your colorful selections. This year I added many new varieties in my garden, even though I never was much of a daylily fan. Maybe I am becoming a convert.

    • It definitely becomes more fun to add different varieties. So many colors, sizes and bloom times. They do take some “cleaning up” right around now which I’ll be talking about soon.

  2. Very interesting about the changes in color when the flowers fade. I have had similar difficulty locating cultivars under what I thought was the right color, but never made the connection. You have quite a nice collection of daylilies.

    • I’m not sure it always works, but it really did help with a couple of varieties that I was trying to figure out. Glad you liked the assortment in my garden.
