The Daylily Dozen (plus one)

Today, I finally had a dozen different daylilies in bloom in my yard.  I limited photos, but it still took forever to go through them 😉  I decided to put today’s collage in some sort of order by color from purple to yellow.

I want to keep this short, but also share some new faces.  First is a brand new face, Indian Love Call.  It is a pretty dark bloom with thin peddles.  Nice addition to the front yard.

The next one is “almost” brand new.  I got South Seas toward the end of last season and I only got one bloom.  I love the bright colors and large bloom size.

Then an old favorite, Route 66.  I found this one the year that Route 66 was the epicenter of my Southwest road trip. The hybridizer created this one back when Route 66 was still more of an American dream trip.  The colors are spot-on.

Another new face today is my first “Mexican Daylily” that is really called a Shell Flower.  These blooms got their nickname because each bloom only lasts one day.  I love the beautiful pattern on the bottom.  These are bulbs that I got for $1 at the grocery store in February (all 12 of them).

And, finally, below is my Daylily Dozen. It is of note that Colorado Kid almost looks like a different flower now that it is hot.  It is up with the dark reds but was a pink in earlier blossoms.
