Today's Flower: Two Red Daylilies

Hybrid Daylilies
Hemerocallis ‘Red Hot Returns’
Hemerocallis ‘Point of View’

For Today’s Flowers here are a couple more Daylilies. They must have done well flowering last year because they seemed to get under the lens a lot more than usual. Here are two more hybrids that were spotted during the summer. I have grown neither but did plant some ‘Red Hot Returns’ last fall. It is a relatively short Daylily with a good reblooming habit. The color is nice with petals orangey red and a lemony throat. Click here for a Larger Version of 'Red Hot Returns'.

‘Point of View’ represented here in both a macro and wider view is a spider daylily variant. It is a cross between ‘Spider Man’ and ‘Newberry Amaryllis’ and was hybridized in 1992. The flowers are big and a nice red. It blooms in the early to mid-season.

The other day I started to try and link to a larger version of the pictures posted here. It worked except that I can’t really put them in the ‘New Pictures’ type of gallery that I had envisioned since when I move them later it will cause a lot of dead links here. Instead the pictures will be linked to the gallery that they will reside on Digital Flower Sorry for any confusion while I work this out.

I very much like the combination of the daylily and flax. I'm going to have to look for 'Red Hot Returns' which I hope is available in Canada.
