The End of the Daylilies

A last look at the daylilies in my small garden. Next year these will be replaced with hostas and heuchera (coral bells) as the Forest Pansy redbud has gotten so big that it blocks the sun the daylilies need to produce nice blooms.

The names of these daylilies are unknown as I bought them as a bag labeled "Lost Tags".

They are beautiful, how could you bear to get rid of them? Are they perfumed? I'm guessing that you don't have too many slugs in your garden if you are aiming to have Hostas.

I would end up keeping them. They are so beautiful, especially the deep pink blooms with yellow centres.

The lilies are beautiful - it's a sham you have had to remmove them. However I am sure you will love the hoostas and heucheras, with al their lovely colours

Toffeeapple: These type of lilies have no fragrance to them unlike the Orientals. And I can't grow any Orientals under the redbud at all (I tried this summer). And fortunately, so far no slugs.

DW: I would too if I had a sunny place to transfer them to which unfortunately I don't. I have to be strong and weed out the plants that don't work in the small garden and these just don't.

Anne: Someday my dream is to move into a single family home (not a townhouse like what I live in down) with a large garden where I can plant all sorts of plants.
