Welcome to the never ending daylilies growing at the Fairegarden. Nearly wordless is more appropriate for this post. From whence they came will be noted to keep it shorter, already we are finding that difficult, we do love words. Above is one of the minis, Little Fantastic, from Sunshine Hollow. Shared from daughter Semi last weekend, Little Grapette, another mini. From Champion Daylilies in Knoxville, TN, Bela Lugosi. New addition purchased last weekend from Champion Daylilies, Ada May Musick. Matthew Martin, one of several Dougherty bred from Sunshine Hollow. From Sunshine Hollow, Juanita’s Picotee Delight. There were several varieties of daylilies that came with the property. We have named them Elrod, the owner’s name with the color to tell them apart, Elrod Purple has been the most vigorous of these. Early on we discovered the need for lighter colors to contrast all the reds, from Sunshine Hollow came My Keeper. From good neighbors Mae and Mickey came Cartwheel. This has been divided and spread to take advantage of its height and color. It reblooms well, as do several of the others. Also from Mae and Micket, Kabuki. Again from M and M, Save Mine has been spread over at the side of the house by the HVAC unit. It is a good contrast on the daylily hill with all the reds also. Another from M and M, Red Volunteer.
This wraps up part three. We have shown thirty two cultivars, less than half of the over seventy grown here. There are still more to come, just a warning.
My name is Frances and I am a lifelong gardener, having lived in various parts of the USA over many years. I am now gardening in USDA Zone 7a east Tennessee. From 2000 to 2014 I was gardening on a slope in a small town in Tennessee. I have been blogging about my gardens since December of 2007. Thank you for visiting!
