Counting Daylily Scapes and Sending Garden Pics
I have been going around looking at the daylilies, and now a number of them are putting up scapes. Golliwog, newly planted in Oct now has 3 and Beautiful Edgings has popped another one, so that makes three. Siloam Double Classic probably has more than 20 and Black-eyed Stella has lots, can't get a good count. Wild Horses has put up one--this daylily is going into year 3 and has never done much even in a great location with lots of TLC. It may be one of those that needs more time to get its act together. Moon Over Monteray has 2, and we have a few passalongs-unnamed--that are putting up scapes. Looks like daylily season is ready to get into full swing pretty soon as long as the weather stays like this. The biggest surprise is Voila Francois which just arrived less than a week ago--imagine how shocked I was to find a scape on it, and this is a single fan plant. When I saw the pics on the Daylily forum last year, I knew I had to get it, and I can hardly wait to see the first bloom. You know I will post a pic if the bloom is good. Now for a few garden pictures while we are waiting for daylily season. Avedon
This is a passalong plant to us, I think people call it Jacob's Ladder, but it is a hardy glad--love that color.

This was a gift to me last year, one of those Walmart Mother's Day specials. My husband planted it in this container and this is how it looks now.

This is Creeping Blue Plumbago, also called Hardy Blue Plumbago. It is a ground cover we are using in one of our hottest spots, the south side of the house with lots of concete around. So far, it has done well, and I love the blue color.
Will close with triplet shot of Miss Victoria taken yesterday afternoon.
