I managed to successfully move a couple of daylilies from my former home to my new home, but mostly, I've been selectively purchasing new ones that I really, really like. Like this 'Mystical Rainbow', here with a katydid sitting on a petal.
This is another much-wanted, much favourite, 'First Officer's Log'. (Think of Star Trek. Yes, that, too)
And this is the whimsically named 'Master Yoda' to further the geekiness of me.
I took this photo the other day at Harbour Breezes Daylilies in Jeddore, NS, where I have bought many of my current cultivars. Those two flowers are side by side, but the one on the right is 'Webster's Pink Wonder' and the flowers are HUGE--13 inches across! Naturally, it came home with me and is happily planted, but not yet blooming. I'd say this weekend.
And this is 'Pride of Canning', bred by the late Wayne Storrie of Canning Daylily Gardens. I gave a big clump of this to my friend Rob of Baldwin's Nurseries several years ago, before Lowell died, and he gave me back a clump from my original plant the other day. I am very, very happy to have this plant back in my garden. And while Big Wayne is gone, his partner, Little Wayne, continues to sell and grow daylilies. He has about 2000 cultivars now, which is kind of amazing.Harbour Breezes has bred and registered a number of gorgeous daylilies, including one for my friend, Rob Baldwin (as Robert W. H. Baldwin)
And one for me, 'Jodi DeLong' Which is a huge honour, and which is all the legacy, along with my son, my writings and my encouraging of you my fellow gardeners, that I need.
These are some of my favourites--what are you favourite daylilies?
