The Ugly Daylily!

Here comes winter.  And, time to focus on my indoor bloomers.  I am taken back by still having buds on my Santa’s Pants daylily.  Especially when my poinsettia is in bloom.  For fun, I plucked off the bloom late in the day and placed it in the poinsettia.

I have increased the sun to the poinsettia since that time, and the pink is really darkening up.  This was dapple pink last year. This is my second time to rebloom a poinsettia – and I did better this year.  Boy, you gotta want that bloom.  I have been covering with black trash bags and putting under my desk (that now has a curtain to block the light underneath).  This one bloomed quickly and easily.  My smaller one lingers in deciding to bloom.

Oh, and I got 3 new amaryllis bulbs to start.  Mine are still in hibernation and set to come out in about a week and a half.  I am guessing I will have blooms through January.  Of all my winter bloomers, the amaryllis remind me most of daylilies.  The bid stalk and the huge bright blooms.

And, a new poinsettia – orange is what I wanted most to replace.  I think a purple if I see one, too.  Maybe a variegated one. That is it though.

A new Thanksgiving cactus, too.  I’m about done planting up my house now.  It is on to creating grow light areas in a couple new places to boost the light.
