July Daylily Roundup A-M

The next two posts are a listing of the daylilies that have bloomed ANYTIME during July – even if they started in June. It is a large list but also a colorful one. I believe only 3 of my cultivators were totally done in June – Saratoga Springtime, Scorpio and yellow Stella de Oro.

If you like Ned Roberts cultivators, you have come to the right place because I have about 70 of them, and most (except Navajo Curls and Adios Albuquerque) that are going to bloom the year have bloomed sometime during July.

I went to the rodeo here last night, so I am all practiced-up and ready to go.

Hot and Sweaty

Today, I got up early to go to a doctor’s appt. It was early enough that buds weren’t open yet on my quick trip to the garden. By the time I got home a couple hours later, the UV was on high and I had a zoom meeting that lasted 90 minutes. By the time I got to go out to the yard, my daylilies looked like I did after standing out there for 5-10 minutes: Hot and sweaty.

Black Ice 7.6.20

I had some nice premiers today – Black Ice is my favorite dark daylily and is a Ned Roberts creation. Unfortunately, the sun leaves the dark ones really zapped.

Apache Bandana 7.6.20

Apache Bandana also had a premier bloom for 2020 – I like the pattern on this Ned Roberts spider

Treasure of the Southwest

Treasure of the Southwest also had a premier today. These blooms are huge and very pretty. Nice bonus from a few years back.

Bela Lugosi 7.6.20

Bela Lugosi also bloomed = man, the sun and dark cultivators. The good news is it looks much happier since I put in the sprinklers.

Funny Valentine 7.6.20

I also had some more finales today. Funny Valentine had a zillion buds and they are all done for 2020.

Pink Enchilada 7.6.20

Pink Enchilada also had its finale today.

And stunning Mauna Loa is done – man, that corner is boring now!

The peak is on . . . I am falling asleep typing this. Ni ni.

Last Sunday in July

Wow – It will be August next weekend.  The daylily peak has come and gone.  The cultivators were in the teens today . . . a massive drop off from 2-3 weeks ago.  It is funny how the first 3 weeks of June are slow progress, then it explodes, then it goes to just a few here and there for months.

Today, we had one new cultivator.  Heirloom Heaven bloomed for the first time in 2018.  She is an adorable late-blooming mini.  She is my last unbloomed scape on a cultivator that hasn’t bloomed yet.  This could be it.  It seems like I usually get some August scapes . . . not many, but a handful.  I don’t know with this drought, though.

HeirloomHeaves7.29.1.jpg

Heirloom Heaven 7.29

And, I had a rude awakening last night – because Mount Echo Sunrise doesn’t look anything like Mount Echo Sunrise.  I looked at her tag, and she has two.  The other one says Moon over Chimayo . . . and she looks like that one.  So, I assume . . .

Christmas in July

Today was Christmas in July and we had 25 cultivators to match that date!  We had a weird work meeting dress-up for the occasion or I doubt I would have noticed.

Anyway – We had a new cultivator in the yard today.  I think this is it for a while and only few more (well, right now only 1 other is in scape) for 2018.  It is odd when ones that bloomed last year are not scaping this year . . . one wonders what motivates a flower to bloom.  Probably not a drought.

So, Apache Uprising bloomed.  She is in the little corner garden in front and I nearly missed her.  She has bloomed for the last 3 summers – I like her deep red color.

ApacheUprising7.25.1.jpg

Because it is Christmas in July, I will mention Lime Frost bloomed today.  This adds some green to our red and she has a Christmastime name:

Sort of Christmas colors.  I only remember one celebration of Christmas in July . . . and today that makes my heart heavy.  I am especially glad I have flowers to keep me company today.

I have been forgetting other blooms – so here we go: Dream Catcher, Mount Echo Sunrise, Navajo Curls, Purple Corn Dancer, Cherokee Star, Mount Echo Sunrise, Classy Lady, Rosie’s Red, Tiger Kitten, Nearly Wild, Comanche Princess, Marque Moon, South Seas, Baja, Mini Pearl, Lady Fingers, Hesperus, Fox Ears, Ruby Stella, Blue Beat, El Desperado, Heron’s Cove, Purple de Oro.

 

Desperado

It is roll-call day!  But, first, a dedication.  It is camping weekend and I was listening to a song “Desperado” on my ipod.  I have always identified with the song.  So, I will put El Desperado as our lead photo today.

Desperado – The Eagles

Desperado, why don’t you come to your senses?
You been out ridin’ fences for so long now
Oh, you’re a hard one
I know that you got your reasons
These things that are pleasin’ you
Can hurt you somehow

Don’t you draw the queen of diamonds, boy
She’ll beat you if she’s able
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet

Now it seems to me, some fine things
Have been laid upon your table
But you only want the ones that you can’t get

Desperado, oh, you ain’t gettin’ no younger
Your pain and your hunger, they’re drivin’ you home
And freedom, oh freedom well, that’s just some people talkin’
Your prison is walking through this world all alone

Don’t your feet get cold in the winter time?
The sky won’t snow and the sun won’t shine
It’s hard to tell the night time from the day
You’re losin’ all your highs and lows
Ain’t it funny how the feeling goes away?

Desperado, why don’t you come to your senses?
Come down from your fences, open the gate
It may be rainin’, but there’s a rainbow above you
You better let somebody love you (let somebody love you)
You better let somebody love you before it’s too late

OK – so new to the garden for the first time in 2018 today is Pizza Crust.  I get a little hungry looking at her because I am stuck with low cholesterol pizza that doesn’t have much crust.

New Faces, Finales, and Roll Call

It is time for Sunday roll call.  But first, a couple cool new Roberts Spiders.  Meet Mount Echo Sunrise – She is a big spider that reminds me of Dream Catcher.  This is her first-ever bloom in my yard – I put her in a couple years ago.

MountEchoSunrise7.15.6withDreamCatcher.jpg

Then there is Sante Fe Christmas – And she looks like a Christmas bow.  Red, green with curly petals.  I really love her – too bad she lost her other buds.  Despite the improved bloom rate, the drought has taken a toll.

SanteFeChristmas7.15.3.jpg

Next up – Finales.  Of course, Santa Fe Christmas is a finale today 😦

Primal Scream is another finale.

Iktomi is another finale.  I have enjoyed seeing the patterns in her offspring.

Happy Hopi gave a finale bloom today.  I really enjoyed her big, bold, blonde blooms.

Now, on to our roll call.  These are the blooms from 7/9 through today.  But, first, we have about 12 with unbloomed scapes remaining and mid-50s with no bloom/no scape.  We are at 107 cultivators (+/-).  Add 12, and we get close to 120.  I am still hoping for 130 total this year.

Well, I tried to post on Friday night, but no internet.  Saturday, some internet, but my phone is crashing all of the apps since the last android update.  Yes, right in the middle of peak season.

Home!

Today brought the 8-hour drive home, across the desert.  A detour to pick up the dogs, then home to see what was in bloom.  I have several new faces to share tonight. All were a little cooked by the time I pulled into the driveway at 3:30 PM.

Bela Lugosi is a new addition this year.  I wanted big and purple.  And, so it is.

On the softer side is the return of Lullaby Baby for 2017.  She has been with me several seasons.

LullabyBaby2.7.15.jpg

And, Marque Moon with a near white bloom with a nice ruffled edge.

Melon Balls makes me smile.  Looks just like its name!

MelonBalls1.7.15.jpg

Thin Man is such a cool daylily – I love this one.  It was in the very first order of daylily roots that I ever planted.  I had no idea what to expect then.

ThinMan3.7.15.jpg

The last one is a tiger, but I don’t know the name.  The nursery was not sure what it was, so sold it to me at reduced price.  I knew it was a tiger because several were in bloom near it . . . this is the first ever bloom for mine, even though I put it in last year.

Tiger1.7.15.jpg

Chicago Apache bloomed today, but I missed it and just now remembered.  Not much point at 10:30 PM.  I’ll feature it next time it blooms.

Tomorrow, I think there will be more new faces.  Peak is here.  Or very close.  I noticed that desert icicle is sending up scapes.  I keep hoping for more . . . a long season would rock.  It’s good to be home.
