Cool Moon Rising finally showed me worthy blooms this year.

August Frost started this week and I love the green throat. Also it's quite tall.

Outrageous living up to its name.

Ming Porcelain is one I grew to appreciate and love. It did well this year.

Buttered Popcorn has multiplied a lot. This is just part of the clump.

Dabo Girl is one of my favorites and it's just about done. Always puts out 3-5 blooms at a time not to overwhelm the senses.

Best In Class shined this year and has a rebloom scape, in top left, coming up full of buds.

Alabama Jubilee, look at the pink in it... So cool.

Emporers Choice is impressive this year.

Arcadia Plantation is a smaller flower about 3-4 inches but with perfect form and plant habit. I love it.

Dragon King has done very well this year. It never looks as good in pictures as it does in person though.

RE: My pics for today

Thanks for posting a photo of Dragon King. I agree that DK has to be seen in person to fully appreciate its velvety lushness and glowing triangular throat. Another plus: the substantial flowers hold up to a light rain (but not a heavy downpour).

All of these pictures are lovely, but I particularly like your happy mix of Dabo Girl, liatris spicata, and daisies.

RE: My pics for today

Lovely! Cool Moon Rising is my favorite of the group.

RE: My pics for today

Lovely photos today. I especially like BEst in Class and Dragon King, but Cool Moon Rising was quite lovely, in fact every shot was beautiful.

RE: My pics for today

Dabo Girl is a soft, enticing shade. Cool Moon Rising also looks very good. Afraid I've had too many negative experiences with Best in Class to share your enthusiasm.

RE: My pics for today

Lots of pretty flowers, Dragon King looks so nice I can't imagine it looking even better. I really like the color of Cool Moon rising too.

RE: My pics for today

Cool Moon Rising has terrific color! Buttered Popcorn makes a bright clump next to your fence, and Best In Class is a standout. The combo of Dabo Girl, the daisies and liatris is excellent! Thanks for sharing your photos!


RE: My pics for today

Lovely group today! My favorites are Cool Moon Rising, August Frost, Best in class and Dabo Girl. But they are all pretty!

RE: My pics for today

They are all gorgeous,and I can not pick just one as a favorite. Dragon King is especially nice.I have that one, too, thanks for sharing your photos.


RE: My pics for today

Nice selection of daylilies today -- I especially like Dabo Girl and Buttered Popcorn.

Am I mistaken, or don't you also grow Goody Goody Gumdrops? (I hope I have the right name.)
