you mean daylilies aren't the only lilies???
Ok, so I really know the answer to this. I have dozens and dozens of daylilies because they are just the best edge and bank holders I know. But I don't make a fuss over them, and they are not in bloom yet. When they are, they do get cut and brought in, but there were none last Saturday. I grow dozens of roses, and they all are in bloom, or were last Saturday.
BUT - two granddaughters, 9 is Rosie, 6 is Lily. We had tea last Saturday, with my rose pattern tea pot, and three of the seven cups with roses on them, and there were cut roses all over the house.
And Lily pipes up "how come everything has roses on it, and you don't have lilies?".
Well, do I feel negligent! And of course I now need to plant some special lilies. I am looking at the JOhn Scheepers catalog - do I want Asiatic,Heirloom Species, Chinese Trumpet, Oriental? Can you recommend some that are good for beginners in southern NH zone 5? Thanks!
