Dallying with Daylilies

Here's a montage of what's blooming in the yard now... They are lovely rain or shine and are reliable bloomers no matter what the level of humidity. Daylilies (hemerocallis) are very hardy, prefer full sun for the best bloom, but are definitely showy in part shade. They are called daylilies as the flowers only last one day. A little fish emulsion and water and you have years of beauty. I do not have all the hybrid strain names for these beauties, as the tags have been lost in the garden, but I look for colors I like. They are excellent garden space filler and I have used them extensively to anchor the slope beyond my patio.
