The approaching Spring brings with it one of my favorite flowers, Daylilies.
There has been so much hybridizing and cross breeding since the original Stella D’oro (yellow) that I can’t decide which ones I like best. Centerton Nurseries has introduced a new mustard-yellow one called ‘Mean Mister Mustard’ with a giant a six inch flower. I couldn’t find a photo on their site but here are a few others that I have seen and I like. The good thing about daylilies is that they are profuse bloomers and relatively low maintenance, only requiring cutting back once or twice each year. The flower performance is definitely worth the effort. FYI while I was on the Criterton site, I notice a very nice plant search form to help you select plants for particular locations. I put a link to the form under my RESOURCES tab at the top of this page.
