Full Sun Bed
Last Fall I extended a daylily bed in the front yard and filled it with daylilies from another bed that had grown too shady. In this photo, I am standing underneath the oak trees where the daylilies were previously planted. The new bed is between the two sago palms.
Here is another angle of the bed shooting down the length of it. It is 3 daylilies wide and about 20 daylilies long.
I have been astounded at the difference this new location has made for these daylilies. The plant growth has been amazing. I have no other daylily bed that is in full sun, so I simply didn't expect such an improvement in one year. All the credit goes to full sun and no competition from tree roots. Here are some more shots from the same bed.
I can't wait to see how this bed performs next year, after the daylilies have a full year to recover from their previous "abuse". It makes me feel guilty looking at all my other daylilies now that I know what a difference the sun can make.
