The second flower of the yellow/orange daylily in bloom. The flower is 8 cm x 8 cm There are still 15 more buds.
The first, of four different daylilies, is in bloom. It is the other one of two a friend gave me. She didn’t know the name of it. Neither have I been able to figure it out despite looking for images on the net.
Of my four different daylilies this Strawberry Candy is the only one to bloom this year. There is four stems. About 5-7 buds on each. It has been, and still is, so very warm. I have watered the plants every day but despite that I can see the leaves are turning yellow and many buds look very dry. Maybe I have given them too much water. I really hope there will be more of them than just one flower. Thumbs up 🙂
WOW ! I was thrilled in the morning to see five flowers in bloom. This is the first time there are more than two flowers in bloom on the same day. Of course it was a must take photos. So, if the number of flowers is five or less per day for the next days there will be no more pictures this summer 😉
The orange daylily is the last one to bloom. Only one stem with about 5 more buds. Since the beginning of the summer I have seen no snails among the lilies but yesterday I saw one on this flower. You can see the petal has some damage to it. Under the petal to the right you can see, if you look close, a small snail. Ufff ! I really thought I had managed to get rid of them .
In the morning, Saturday 15th, it was thrilling to see the first of the two buds on the plant my friend gave me a couple of weeks ago opened. The plant is about 35 cm tall and the flower about 5 cm wide. I was not sure would it have the strength to bloom this year. Such beautiful color ! I googled for pictures of yellow daylilies on the web and found many that look like mine but with stronger yellow and red color. I think the lighter color of mine is because the plant is so young. According to the pictures my baby plant is a Hemerocallis ‘Fooled Me’. I can’t wait to see it fully grown to about 50-60 cm tall and 12 cm wide flowers.
