Here are a few more daylily faces. It’s traditional to show single daylily blooms in photographs so that the intricacies of the flower can be appreciated. Lest you should think that daylilies just bloom one flower at a time, however, I’ve included a few clumps.

I demonstrated great restraint this spring, and didn’t add a single new daylily cultivar to the garden, leaving the hemerocallis count at 140 varieties, so these photos represent just a modest sampling, taken at random according to what looked good to the camera.
