Daylily - 'Mint Condition'
Hemerocallis 'Mint Condition'
Scroll down for this weeks Wordless Wednesday.
It has been a week or so since a Daylily was posted here so here we go again. The Daylilies bloomed so beautifully this year. Two years ago I did a big Daylily planting (the garden was fenced for deer) and this year when I went back it was amazing to see how much they had grown. Everywhere I went this summer it seemed there would be a lot of Daylilies. Maybe the conditions were favorable but it could also been that the flowers always bloom like that and I just noticed.
‘Mint Condition’ is a beautiful butter yellow diploid Daylily. It was introduced in 1983. It is quite tall and had a nice texture to the ruffled flowers.
This is kind of what I mean about seeing Daylilies everywhere. I pulled into an abandon commercial building near Westchester County Airport to make a phone call and there was an ocean of Daylilies blooming. Only a small patch is represented here it continued for several hundred feet and was across the street also. It was quite a nice red cultivar. There was also huge plantings of yellow and orange. They were perfect and had no maintenance.
Sorry I haven’t had the time to respond to all the comments but wanted to say to everyone thanks for leaving them. It makes this space so much more enjoyable for me.
