Daylilies

March 8, 2009

When I began gardening, I chose daylilies as my main focus. I envisioned them coming back virtually forever, thinking that in a few years I’d only have to buy a few annuals each year and thinking I wouldn’t have so much planting to do as I aged. I had over 60 cultivars. What I didn’t know was that, unlike wild daylilies, most cultivars only return for 2 or 3 years. A few may be around a bit longer. Ah well–I enjoyed them while I had them! Out of several hundred photos, here are some of my better ones taken from 2003 – 2007.
