Peak Season is here!

The field looks amazing and there are dozens of new cultivars coming out every day!

 

CSD Pink bed 28: We've got lots of this one, as it's a good grower.

 

Olallie Wendy: a great little purple from early July to early August

 

 

Yellow Hornet (spidery), From Darkness Comes Light (dark stem) Super Duper Tall (very tall)

 

CSD miniature bicolor Bed 31: Another newer cultivar. Soon to be added

 

Backstroke: A charming pony with bright yellow blooms and distinctive red buds and sepal backs!

 

 

 

 

 

Finally we're starting to see some consistent blooms. I think that from here on in there will be new daylilies opening every day!

All the work on early hybrids has really paid off, and there will be lots with pigmented scapes as well.

H. flava 'major': A nice lemon yellow bloomer.

 

Orange Man: Always a consistent early bloomer, frequently the first to bloom.

 

Some unknown miniature hybrid, popping up in our bamboo bed. These kind of flowers are always welcome surprises.

 

 

 

The dark scapes add to the color interest of daylilies like this one, now named Olallie Brian's Birthday.

Finally we've had some warm weather and a good steady rain.

Field is mostly clear of snow except for the edges. 

Daylilies are up and growing.

 

Our second batch of daylilies, dug, tagged and washed, ready for packing and shipping.

Five Siberian Iris "Baby Sister" plants, dug and washed, ready for tagging and shipping. This is one of our favorite short Siberians, as it is very vigorous and showy!

 

Baby Sister, in full bloom, mid June.

 

We have had a brutally cold and (fortunately) snowy winter. The snow cover has insulated the daylilies well I think.

Labels poking up through the snow.

Updated inventory and more in the days to follow. I believe Spring will come.
