Strawberry Rose Daylily




Daylily

Hemerocallis 'Strawberry Rose'

(hem-er-oh-KAL-iss)


Looking back in the archives I have become amazed at how many Daylilies I have been photographing. It must be that they bloom during the time when it is conducive to being outside and carrying a camera. Some of the flowers have made an impression on me including ‘Strawberry Rose’. It’s delicate color, curved petals and ruffled edges just screamed class and elegance. It arrived in gardens in 1980.


This next Daylily is from the collection at the farm. A big nursery planted it about 20 years ago. It looks like that they went through the stock of fancy daylilies at the nursery and grabbed a few of each. Of course now the flowers have kind of staked out their own claim and have their little area in the bed, which is about 25 feet long by 10 feet wide. It is a pleasure to see them all blooming with a kind of random allure. This one has a large flower that is held proudly and tall.


Just a word to the people that have signed up to follow this site, Thanks! I have a of good flowers picked out to post over the winter plus I am dreaming of visiting somewhere tropical during this winter.
