Dayllies are the star of the show this month at Glenns Garden especially in the back yard nursery stock beds.
One of the easiest perennials to grow these plants come in many different flavors due to their popularity with gardeners who love to hybridize them producing many different combinations.
I have a good selection but I must confess I only have ones that strike my fancy. I guess if my sole purpose was to resell them then I would probably do some research and find out what is most popular but some times it is not all about the money.
As a landscape plant daylilies are some of the easiest plants to grow. Once established these plants will spread and fill in an area quickly with very little care and few if any pests or disease to hinder them.
My favorite is this beauty right here with a bloom almost the size of a softball. No doubt about it this one will grab your attention as you walk by.the bloom stands almost 24″ high so it can be seen over and above most other perennials in the bed.
As you can see this one produces a lot of flowers just look at all those unopened buds.
If you are looking for an easy to care for plant that delivers big time than I would suggest you look into the daylilly family I’m sure that you can find at least one that will strike your fancy.
The only word of caution is that this are aggressive growers so you will need you will need to thin these beds out ever three to four years,
