I have a number of rebloomers extending my daylily show–I believe the early spring fooled a few flowers into thinking they were down south. 😉 ‘May May’ and ‘Rosy Returns’ have been going strong most of the summer. ‘Mister Lucky’ rebloomed again this year, and ‘Going Bananas’ (new last fall) has another scape coming up right now. Here are a few reblooms I snapped photos of:

It ain’t over till it’s over!

Thanks to everyone who attended our meeting this past Saturday, and extra special thanks to the members who pitched in to make it great! Despite a bit of booking confusion and a scramble at the beginning, everything came together for a wonderful meeting. Much gratitude to Karol Emmerich for making the trip and sharing her invaluable “Life Lessons from the Daylily Garden” as well as her gorgeous plants. I can’t wait to see ‘Solemn Oath’ growing in my garden!
