Our Daylillies

Our house has a large number of different kinds of daylillies in the gardens. I like daylillies in part because they are pretty hardy: you don't have to worry about them getting enough water, etc; all they need is a pretty good amount of sun. Also, they bloom in a time of the year when not much else is out, so they are a good complement to other flowering items.

The following table is arranged in approximate opening date order (I didn't keep good records of exactly which came out when), and shows images of most of them.

If you click on any thumbail image, it will take you to a maximum-sized image of the piece. For some of them, there are two variants of one of the images, because the images came out so differently depending on whether the blossoms were in direct sun or not, etc.
