pondering color for color's sake

I have been going over pictures while waiting for spring and checking out catalogs and new things offered on the LA. I find in my own gardens I have added many eyed, edged, bi tone, etc and have gradually removed just pure solid color daylilies bit by bit. In the catalogs and LA-I see much of the same. I have begun to realize I would hate to see the pure colors be 'bred out' So-that being said-what daylilies do you like without the bells and whistles-just pure color? Hope this makes sense. lol After seeing it in my Aunt's yard, I had to get Mary's Baby.

RE: pondering color for color's sake

Hi, Lisa, I know just what you mean. I like solid colors, or those that have a lot of subtle shading of the same colors, Most of these in our garden will be oldies, but that's fine with me. I am sending along a few examples, perfect to do on a rainy afternoon. Avedon

Smokey Mountain Autumn is just one of the flowers where the color is just so perfect it doesn't need extra fluff!
