Last week I enjoyed my annual stroll through the gardens
of my friends’ former daylily farm, Whippoorwill’s Call.
There are hundreds of hybrids of daylilies and obviously, no deer.
It is interesting to me how many forms a flower can take in one species of Hemereocallis
if you mix up its genes a bit.
Different ruffles and watermarks and tepal markings…
Here are some of my favorites.
I will get the Rumples to check behind me about names.
Of course I was busy talking while photographing, so there are probably some mix-ups.
Check back in a few days if an accurate hybrid name of one of these is important to you.
If I ever quit talking,
I may be able to get something done correctly…but it won’t be as fun.
Aren’t these uneaten flowers amazing?
