Every year I go to the big garden center sale in July. I make a bee-line for one table - the Tidewater Daylily Society! There the Society offers rhizomes/corms? of old favorites, new and improved varieties and the newest offerings in the daylily world. Once I have purchased my slips I go home and start digging. Then, I have to wait until next year to see the blossoms. So, each summer I have an ongoing show of daylilies that I bought the year before. These are some of this years crop. I am sorry I can't give you names - we have Maggie Poodle to thank for that. I plant the things, I put the little tags into the ground by each plant so I can identify it and when I go inside Maggie likes to take the little plastic signs and tosses them all over the yard. BUT! This year I have a plan. I am going to start writing the names on a garden map. So, next year's lilies will not be nameless!!
There are two daylilies that I am waiting for. So far,no buds. They are named Bela Lugosi and Nosferatu - both are dark purple almost black. When they bloom I will post pics of them.
