Hybrid Daylilies

Hybrid Daylilies
Hemerocallis ‘Bella Lugosi’
Hemerocallis ‘Belle Cook’
(hem-er-oh-KAL-iss)

Seems like I am always posting Daylilies for Today’s Flowers but these ones were special. ‘Bella Lugosi’ was very dark red and had a lot of large flowers. Very distinguished looking.

‘Belle Cook’ has a huge flower with the heavy crinkling around the edges. It had several colors mixed in the flower and they all seemed to work together. Another special looking Daylily.


Both of these photos were taken at the Cleveland Botanical Garden. It is a small facility with a nice collection of interesting perennials and shrubs. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and would recommend it to people in the area.

See more flowers from all over the world at Today’s Flowers .

Here is the bonus flower for TF. It was a unnamed Daylily blooming in the Perennial Border. All of these photos were shot with my backup body, a D70s, and a Sigma 24mm/1.8 lens.
