Learning About Rust and Some DL pictures
I have been spending a lot of time on the computer looking at websites to education myself about rust. I think I know enough now to figure out how to handle it, but I need to know if I spray with these fungicides, should I remove all the mulch from around the plants? I guess it would only make sense to do so, but please confirm this for me. I have made an interesting discovery--it appears that the rust is only on the daylilies that I raised as seedlings from one particular plant which also has rust. If I don't find rust on any other plants, then it must be this one plant and offspring are rust prone. The thing is, we have had these plants for years and never noticed any rust until evidently last year--go figure.
Now, I have a few pictures, nothing new as far as Dls. but maybe nice to look at, also have a few other garden flowers. Avedon
Julianna Lynn--We had a shower this morning, so there are raindrops on the Julianna Lynn twins.
Seedling--this is the plant where I spotted the rust. It has the one scape on it, and the weather has darkened the flower color quite a bit.
Carpenter Seedling--looked pretty good yesterday
Buttered Popcorn Triplets--this one just keeps on keeping on.
Tender Love--a late bloomer

Miss Victoria reblooming now
The seedling named for my sister-- I am calling it "Jean's Joyful Noise"
If you like fragrance, try the single Mexican tuberose. The scent in the evening is intense.
This is one of our tuberose plants about 36" tall
Our Tropicanna Cannas have been doing well, love the color.

The Carpenter seedling I named for my mother--just found this photo so will close with it.
