Daylily Bank in Heath

The Daylily Bank in Heath is coming into bloom. This solution to eliminating lawn mowing on the  steep bank has been very successful. It was planted over the course of three years with daylilies mostly in shades of yellow and pink.

The proper name for daylilies is Hemerocallis or ‘Beautiful for a day.’  I think this sunny yellow daylily is as beautiful as the day.

I have taken a  couple of daylilies down to the new house in Greenfield, but I am planning to be at the Daylily and Arts Festival on Saturday, July 11 between 9 am – 4 pm at 23 Pickett Lane. Lots of daylilies in bloom, and lots of daylilies to buy! Other vendors will be on site, too. Richard Willard has moved his Silver Gardens business to Pickett lane. Can’t wait to see his new site, and decide which daylilies  are crying to be planted in my new garden.

    Love the pink Daylily! Mine are very slow to open……I’m chompin’ at the bit!

    Sally – I love pink daylilies, too. So many shades! Of course, that is true of every daylily color.

    I so love the meaning of hemerocallis. Will you bring many of your flowers to the new house?

  4. Pat

    Nan – Yes, we are taking a few plants with us to the new garden, but the new garden is very, I mean very, wet so some plants will have to stay in Heath. I’ve already moved some dayliliies to the ‘curbside garden.
