Riding the Relentless Heat

They say another 10 days of this heat. I notice it is hotter here today than in Alabama. At least we had a thunderstorm.

Today HEAVENLY ANGEL ICE was looking better:

And VICTORIAN LACE was wide open earlier and whiter than usual:

PEGGY JEFFCOAT seemed quite large, but pic was a bit yellowish in early morning light:



LAVENDER RICHES (small, about 4")





What Stamile pink is this?



RED SUSPENDERS (some nice blooms this year, but not a lot)

PANDORA'S TREASURE (not a stellar performer in this location--or maybe climate--but the color is strong)

Ah Mantis! Look at the beautiful blooms. You are right, by the way. We were expected to be around 104 today, and we had a wonderful series of thunderstorms that depressed the ridge, and we didn't break 90 today.

Yesterday at 0200, it was 104, today, 80 in Birmingham...we actually got no rain here (unfortunately), but it was cloudy most of the day.

I hope you get an unexpected break too. Heavenly angel Ice, Hush Little Baby, Ram, and red suspenders are my favorites today.

RE: Riding the Relentless Heat

Hope everyone survives this heat. What a strange year it has been. My favorites of your daylilies are Heavenly Angel Ice, Guapa, and Great White.

RE: Riding the Relentless Heat

Hope those storms are headed this way as we could use the rain.
Don't know the pink Stamile one.
RAM I understand is a very big bloom. Does it bloom large in your garden?



Correction: The white labeled Platinum and Gold is actually Glacier Bay.

Julia: Yes, Ram is huge.

RE: Riding the Relentless Heat

They are all just gorgeous.HUSH LITTLE BABY is a favorite, and GREAT WHITE and Ram. very pretty.It was cloudy here this morning,so that helped to hold the temps down a little, only got to 94 here today.


RE: Riding the Relentless Heat

I can name that Stamile pink in two seconds flat: Lyrical Presence. Do I get a prize? It was my first pink that didn't look peachy, and I was in love with it for several years.

It's great to hear that you finally had some rain. We had some sprinkles here today - not enough rain to do any good, but at least it subdued the heat so we didn't reach 100 degrees today. This evening it was only 83 degrees, and I was able to spray for thrips again. Hooray!

My favorites are the clump shots of Peggy Jeffcoat and Hush Little Baby. I wish my HLB would clump up like that. It doesn't increase where I have it planted because there's too much shade. Ram is another one that always catches my eye. It demands to be noticed and admired.


RE: Riding the Relentless Heat

We got the heat but the last two storms just missed us. Kind of glad about the first one-it did a lot of damage in neighboring counties. Many of them are still out of power. I'd love rain! I like Victorian Lace and Hush Little Baby

RE: Riding the Relentless Heat

I considered Lyrical Presence, but that one is listed as 21" whereas this one is taller than 21". It may simply bloom taller than registered height. So many of the Stamile pinks are similar. Here is an earlier-blooming Stamile. If the one posted today is Lyrical Presence, do you know the name of this one?

RE: Riding the Relentless Heat

Mantis - I don't know the name of the one in the pot. But I will tell you that Lyrical Presence grows about 25 inches tall in my garden.


RE: Riding the Relentless Heat

I figured out that the one in the pot is Silken Touch. I think you are right about the Lyrical Presence. Glad to get that one named. Thanks.

RE: Riding the Relentless Heat

Lovely clump of HUSH LITTLE BABY. And RAM, I just love the color of Ram.

RE: Riding the Relentless Heat

Lot of beauties! The light / whites ones are all so pretty and they are my favorites today. I like Hush Little Baby(ies), Ram and Chamonix too, pretty color.
It's always nice to find an ID!
Another week of heat for here too.. and no rain.
