The Daring Determined Day Lily Development!
Every year cosmos reseed themselves and just take over this area. My daughter and I have a running debate about these. She says weed, I say cosmos. Some grow over 6 feet tall. Between those and the evil weed (cobblers peg) I couldn't even walk there last summer.
So this year things are going to be different! First, though, the beds have to be cleaned out. So this is going to be a major project.
Day lilies are just about the best perennial in the world, for someone like me, who needs plants which basically tend to themselves. Some of these babies already have buds; they are in three heights: 18", 24" and 28" and in shades of pink, red, and yellow. I can envision this in my mind so hope to see this come to fruition in the next few days. Stay tuned for progress reports....
