An issue I'm wrestling with
I've been thinking about this.
There are numerous kinds of 'hobby' flowers: daylilies, of course, hosta, iris, roses, begonias, and so forth. Now, I'm not as much of an enthusiast as most of you, but I especially love daylilies, hosta and astilbe. Here's the question that I have, for myself, mostly, I suppose.
In nature, stuff grows in drifts dictated by the growing conditions, and this is so lovely and graceful. Now that I'm becoming a hobbyist, I find myself wanting 'one of each kind'. I think my garden would be more spectacular if, for example, instead of having 1 each of 35 daylilies, I had 35 Lady Lucille's (she's fabulous, I don't have Alabama Jubilee, and I'm guessing that she is an even more spectacular orange.)
How do all of you balance these two aspects? That is, gardener vs. hobbyist.
Great rain yesterday. The daylilies will be so happy!
