Late post of what was blooming today
We got some rain today, that's great, we needed it. Only half an inch but still, it's rain!
I knew the daylilies will be damaged by the rain, but what I didn't know was that
many of them chose today to open lots of blooms!
Even the ones on which I have only ever seen 1-2 blooms. Why?
I had at least 25 plants with 9-15 blooms at once. And almost everything was shredded..
Also because it was a cold night yesterday some didn't open all the way.
Here are the only ones that looked good enough to take a pic:
Utopia or Oblivion. Both this and another older Hanson dl were not bothered by the rain at all,
but they didn't open fully
My noid with 16 flowers, no rain damage, but this daylily is so tall it's hard to make a clump shot
Here is a part of the bed with all of them opening more flowers than usual.
Well, Ruby Spider is loaded with blooms every day this year, but Francis of Assisi
had 15 and Yellow Titan too
No close up there, they were all rain damaged :( Plus Francis had poor opening
Grace Brooker looked ok
JKO was hiding under the two umbrellas of the blooms above this one (those looked bad)
Surprisingly, Neal Berrey. But maybe because the blooms on it don't look up
Part of Tower of Babel clump
From some distance they looked alright :) In the front is Gather at the River.
It opens later, and it also held up in the rain, maybe because of that
Here is a close up of GATR clump at about 6pm
