Country Melody

Country Melody (Klehm 1987)

I love the spring season in the garden, when new growth is everywhere. It’s very exciting and inspiring. But for brilliant, happy, boisterous colour, there is nothing like the midsummer daylily season. These easy-care no-fuss perennials come in a wide range of colors and shapes and sizes, and brighten the garden for weeks. As each individual flower blooms for just one day, every morning brings a new bouquet. Here are some of the daylilies blooming right now. Each flower is labeled with its name, hybridizer, and the year the hybrid was registered with the American Hemerocallis Society.

Sheridan Square

Sheridan Square

So here she is, the last, the very last, of the daylilies in my garden to put out their first flower for 2011. Sheridan Square is a reserved daylily. She’s lived in my garden for a few years, and comes up reliably each spring. In spite of this, the plant is still just a couple of fans, just as she started out. And flowers? Yes, she flowers every year, a couple of scapes with a modest number of blooms, held until late in the season when she has the patch all to herself. Then, there they are, offered up sweetly and quietly. Some of her more robust neighbours are still blooming, although they began weeks ago and are just throwing out a few last flowers before retiring for the year and hunkering down to wait for winter. Here are some of the other daylilies that still have a few blooms.

Cameroons

The warmer temperatures make you believe that spring is just around the corner. I have been thinking of my summer garden and browsing through my photographs from last July, when the daylilies were in full bloom. What glorious colours! Above is a close up of Cameroons, while below is the aptly named Big Smile.

Check out the little crab spider on one of these Eggplant Escapade blooms. Can you see it?

And here is the brilliant face of Scarlet Poppy.

This week, I slipped a couple of orders for daylilies in the mail. Canada has a number of excellent daylily suppliers. One of my orders went to Nottawasaga Daylilies, near Creemore, Ontario. I hope to see the pretty pink face of Banned in Boston blooming in my garden this summer. This photograph is from the Nottawasaga photo gallery.
