Frans Hals

Frans Hals (Flory 1955)

It’s been an amazing summer for daylilies here. Although it has been very hot and dry, a few thunderstorms have rolled through and kept things from becoming totally parched. Some of the plants have put on wonderful displayed, but the daylily season is beginning to wind down now. Early bloomers are finished, middle bloomers are getting down to their last few buds, and there are only two or three plants left that are just now about to open their first flowers. Here is a display of some of the flowers that have been brightening the garden this week, everything from an old favorite, Frans Hals, introduced in 1955 to Old King Cole, a new spring arrival in my garden.
