D is for Daylily



~ D is for Daylily ~




Daylilies are considered a 

"sure bet perennial."





They are hardy plants that can adapt to most 

any soil and both drought and frost.





As their name implies,

the blooms last for one day,

opening early morning

and withering  by nightfall.





Multiple blooms grow on each stalk

so that new blooms open

day after day.




Daylilies grow in clumps with long,

linear arching leaves.

  3. Hi Sarah,
    Your bed of daylilies must cheer you up whenever you or anyone walks past it! The birdbath in the background is so pretty, too. I'm looking forward to letter "E". Hope your packing and sorting are going well.

  4. Sarah your daylilies are just so pretty! What a great color splash in the landscape. I love them too but don't have very many...I need to divide a few clumps this year and add some more yellows. Just beautiful! Hope you get back to Victoria...it's been 12 years since we have been.

  7. One of my favorite plants! In the garden of our former home, I had a row of yellow Stella D'Oro Daylilies. With deadheading, they bloomed all summer. Very reliable and cheerful. Yours are beautiful, Sarah. Cheers

  32. I would love to have a border of those along the front lawn...water is an issue right now..but one day. One day soon I hope. They are lovely..

  33. Sarah, Your lilies are Delightful. Our are just shooting out of the ground now, and soon our deer will be devastating the beds as they devour the delicious delicacies. They will stand in the garden and watch me try to shoo them away while they munch on the unopened buds! I have a new spray which we will try this year. I love seeing the bright orange and yellow flowers, and they line many of our streets here where the deer cannot reach them. Your garden bed is beautiful with the lilies, echinacea and all the shades of green. Linda

  37. They are very pretty. I have to say, they are one of the few flowers the goats and dog haven't killed around my place.

  40. Sarah, your daylilies are exquisite. I am always drawn to the wonderful displays of daylilies, but for some reason they are one thing we can't seem to get to thrive. I believe we just don't have a sunny enough place for them to love.

    Thank you for sharing with us for Pink Saturday.♥
