A few favorites from my California garden

kathy9norcalJuly 7, 2012

Peak bloom is over, things are slowly winding down, so I have time to post a few favorites from this season.


Born Too Late


Butterfly Cove (earlier blooms looked best)


Can't Believe My Eyes (perfect opener, brand new plant)


Carrot Cake (tiny, new plant--wow)


Cinderella Sue


Continental Holiday


Cow Bird (brand new tiny plant)


Creme de la Creme

Thanks for looking!

You are so very lucky to be able to grow those blooms which have the big edges on them and have them open perfectly like CAN'T BELIEVE MY EYES. Wonderful pic.

I have to agree, Can't Believe My Eyes is a stunner! I love Carrot Cake too, so pretty with the vivid color.

Thank you all! I just wanted to say that we have pretty cool nights and alot of daylilies do not open well at all. CBME is unusual in that it opens perfectly, every bloom, even on a new plant. If you like it, try it! It is a 10 daylily, IMHO!

Jean, hi again! I missed you and wondered how you are. I don't think the daylily folks would want me posting roses, so go over to the Rose Gallery to see my roses.
Happy gardening and try to keep cool--hah!

A very nice group of daylilies. Hard to narrow it down to just one so I won't. They are all winners. I was telling a friend of mine we don't seem to get too many California posters on this forum so glad to have you here...Maryl
