My extra early, early and some mid-season daylilies are all blooming at the same time like a musical concerto leading up to a crescendo.
I love huge flowered daylilies but have to remember that the large flowers go with large scapes and leaves which can become unsightly in the garden bed. I try to pull out the leaves that yellow before bloom and always cut them down to the ground after the entire plant has finished blooming.
Daylily Chicago Weathermaster is rainproof, blooms early to mid-season.
Arnie's Choice early to mid-season
Named after Arnie Morton Chicago Restauranteur
Red Rum is a shorter early to mid-season daylily, larger flower. What's great about this daylily is that when you cut it down other plants in the border take over.
I am trying it with the white Becky Shasta this year.
Maybe I will try it with yellow or lime green!
I don't know what I was thinking that July was the end of my garden! I now know that it is just the beginning for daylilies alone. They have become the backbone of my garden from May through September!
