    Rouge Blush, Rajastan Sands and Fall Pink Melon still going strong October 11, 2017.   H. sempervirens: A late species much like H. fulva but blooming months later. Marginally hardy here. Monarchs were back in force! We counted dozens of them here on the farm. They loved the late blooming Verbena, one of the last flowers to still be blooming!

Early June is a great time to visit Olallie Daylily Gardens. The Siberian Iris is in full bloom and most of our early daylilies are out too. An excellent time to transplant, people often pick up an iris or two and some daylilies for later in the season.
