My daughter Charlotte came to see me in June in 2007, and we went to a Day Lily Farm. Edna, my Sunday School teacher, raises Day Lilies not to far from me. I bought three. A dark yellow and a lighter one the with a tan edging. The light one with the tan edging died. These are large and beautiful, multiply fast, however when they finish the seson they are gone to bloom no more until next year.
Day Lily. When I saw that they really did rebloom all summer until frost. That is what I wanted. I had bought others some rebloom some did not. However I see no need in buying any other kind now. I will mark the non rebloomers and not move them to other places. When I have to thin out, I will give them away. Now when I buy I only buy rebloomer unless it is extraordinary and I do not have it.
I bought only two of these in 2008. Over the years I have divided them and spread them around this 5x8 bed. I divided them just as soon as Spring began, because I knew what was there. Most places start selling them in May because that is when they start to bloom. You may not get a bloom until the next year, they have to know what they are sending you. They cut off the stems. When I dig mine up, if I know what they are, I do it when they first appear in the spring. They usually bloom the same spring. I take pictures and use picasa as a map. You can drag your pictures around and know what is in each bed and then you can divide in early Spring.
IF he will only tiller it. I really do not want grass at all, however it does make a good back ground for flowers. Without some grass as a divider it would look like a jungle. That is why I like built up beds. I like high beds because we have wet winters and a lot of root rot. I lost a lot of my Asiatic Lilies.
These are not rebloomers I have them all around two red beds. Wherever I bought them they called the color red. Really they look dark orange to me. Colors are not always what they say they are. These I will start giving away.
They over filled the back yard so this was empty ,and I have not found anything that I want here so the over flow has a home for now.
This is more red again not a rebloomer. I will keep this until I can find a red rebloomer. They are at the end of this bed.
I do not know weather this is a rebloomer most of mine are not.
In the fall I am moving this one to the orange bed, with my rose the VaVoom.

I watched this last year and was glad to see it was a rebloomer. I ordered 10 from Grady's Day lily farm 2011 and this was one.

I am going to move this one to the walk and put a rebloomer here. This one is on the very front of the big bed. I want a rebloomer here.
This is a real old day lily. I have it in my orange bed. Multiplies to fast. Most lilies multiply close together this one send out roots from the main plant. I will only have one here.
This is a new one I planted last year. I hope it reblooms. This is in my Orange bed on the front so if it is not a rebloomer, I will move it when I
find and orange rebloomer.
This was my first rebloomer planted in 2008. I bought this at Selman's Nursery. We divied it and over half went into Carrels bed.
This on will be moved also to the orange bed.
This is the reddest one I have, I hope it is a rebloomer.
This is almost the same color as my rose, Ebtide. I will move it in the fall and plant it in front of it. I had to wait for this one to bloom so I could get a picture to finish this blog page. It is a late bloomer.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my Day lilies and will plant some of your own. I thank you for watching my garden grow and bloom and hope you will grow one of you own. Happy gardening to you from carrel and I. Juuanita.
