Day Lilies

The daylilies stopped blooming before I was quite ready for the show to be over, so I went in search of late-blooming dark reds to round out the collection.  I ended up with four plants from Oakes Daylilies.

Blood Spot (dreadful name) is a nice dark red.

Crimson Shadows comes highly touted as a rich, dark red.

This one is Chicago Apache, said to be a good rebloomer.

Then I had to stray into the fragrant yellows and chose Lemon Lollypop (sic).

This is another fragrant re-bloomer.  Oakes was kind enough to send a freebie, Tender Love.

A rebloomer that has won an award for fragrance!  We’ll see.

I am very pleased with their service:  came on time, well packed, free plant, and four of the five were abundant enough that I got two or three plants from each one.

  1. Glad to hear that Oakes is still a high quality source. You’ll be glad to hear that, at least in my garden in western Virginia, Tender Love is a late-blooming daylily. I used to have it next to Lullaby Baby, a long bloomer, so that it would pick up when LB finally let up.

  2. Thanks, Nell – right now it’s hard to believe that anything will ever bloom again! But the snowdrops are starting to come up…
