DAYLILIES in our Yard, 2014---Part II

EARLY BIRD CARDINAL (taken on 6/15)--This is always our FIRST DayLily to bloom, and it blooms over and over.
This is my 2nd DayLily post this year.  IF you missed the first one showing 15 daylilies),  please click HERE.   We ended up with 55 different varieties of DayLilies in our yard this year. Today I'm sharing 15 more.  First,  I'm showing you the DayLilies in the Small Flowerbed in front of our large rose bed.  Above is Early Bird Cardinal.  Below are the others in that bed.


LAVENDER DEAL (7/08) ---Pretty color,  isn't it?

ORANGE VOLS (7/16);  You know I love this one since it reminds me of my favorite sports team,  the Tennessee Vols (with ORANGE and white as their colors)

The next flowerbed  I'll share is the Road Flowerbed --where the Daylilies really show off...  Hope you enjoy this next group.
SOUTH SEAS  (6/30)






CARLOTTA (7/15)  (Carlotta is a late-bloomer.)

Two in One:  CUSTARD CANDY (on left)  and FOOLED ME (on right)--taken on 6/27

BICOLOR  (7/21)
There are two more DayLilies I have to share with you today... First above is the other one from the Garage Flower Bed which had not bloomed when I featured that bed in Part I.  This is one of the last daylilies to bloom --but it is SO pretty!  Don't you agree?

And this one is special to George and me since his Daddy gave these little daylilies to us when we first moved here to Fairfield Glade. 

I will close with two pictures showing some of the Daylily Beds.  The photo above is the Small Bed (in front of our Rose Bed)...  It's small --but the entire bed brought us quite a bit of color this summer. This photo was taken on 7/10.

ROAD BED (showing Daylilies, Lilies, Roses and Irises)
AND--this is my favorite bed  (photo taken on 7/1)--the Road Flower Bed.  The colors and blooms in this bed are gorgeous beginning in Spring -- with the Roses blooming through Fall. AND---since many of our DayLilies are re-bloomers,  we hope to have many of them re-bloom in the Fall.  How special is that!

Hope you enjoyed seeing more of our Day Lilies.  Do you have a favorite out of this group?  There are many that I like really well in this group--but my two favorites are Orange Vols and Wild Horses.   We have good luck with Day Lilies here since the critters don't dig up the bulbs --and the deer stay away from them (MOST of the time)... ha...

ADDENDUM:  Early Bird Cardinal (the red one at the top) is now blooming again already on 8/28/14  for its Fall Blooms.  IF you want a Daylily that blooms ALOT,  get this one from Oakes Daylilies....  It's TERRIFIC!!!
