Garden Glimpses: July Jewels
The daylily garden is really beginning to take off. Some of the plantings are now in their third year on the property, and it shows. I have one stubborn year two variety that just won’t bloom – Exotic Love. Rather fitting, don’t you think, as elusive as love can be? But all seven of the new first-years gave me something, which is unusual. Small and sparsely budded, they bloomed out early, but as a group they have done better in their first season (by percentage) than the prior plantings. They are in a prime location, ringing the seating area atop the sandmound, in full sun, so I’m sure within a couple more years they’ll be as voluminous as the rest.
