    Default Another Daylily

    This is the only one open today, but it is lovely. A little more of a purple hue than the picture shows... or a maroon color might be a better description. Also, just for giggles is a picture of my dahlia. I only have one, and it is being eaten alive by night time creatures so this might be the only bloom this year. The bloom is about 8" across.

    Those are lovely. It is so hot here, the dalias do not grow well. I need to try planting some in the ground instead of pots on the deck. They would probably do much better there. Nice photos too!

    Cheers!

    Those are very lovely. I love Lilies including Daylilies and Dahlias too.

    I grow Dahlias in the past. I even had success growing them from seeds. But it is very difficult to keep the tubers from rotting during summer because of the constant rain. The solution I found was to dig them up in summer and store them in the fridge and plant them out again in autumn. They bloom in winter, in my area.
