A day lily kind of day.

.

I really wish they were month lilies.

.

.

Because they’re a wonderful pop of color in the garden and a day just isn’t enough.

.

.

I have them scattered here and there around the property.

.

.

And while this dark pink is my favorite, it’s never grown larger… though I planted it 17 long years ago.

.

.

This line of hostas and day lilies was here when we moved in… and though it’s not a good spot, I’ve yet to relocate them.

.

.

This double ruffle is sweet.

.

.

But the stormy sky behind my backyard patch?

.

.

Not at all sweet.

  1. Wow, those are beautiful lilies, and you call your back yard a “patch?” No River, it’s not a patch, you have a yard the size of Central Park (or close to it) and its most definitely a patch…lol.

    Your getting rain now? Unfortunately so am I…..still…ugh.

  2. Some daylilies are slow growers and don’t spread out. If you want that clump of pink daylilies to be larger dig it up and split it into 4 or 5 pieces and plant a foot or so apart. Next summer you will have a large clump of pink dayliles. You don’t have to wait for fall. As long as they go back into the ground the same day they will hardly know they were moved.

  3. Those pink ones are great. The orange kind (not double ruffle) are massively overused in my area. I have them all along the side of my house (previous owner’s decision) but ripped them out of my main garden. I’ve planted some interesting colors of daylilies – sure wish they would spread as quickly as the orange ones do.
