Hybridized Day Lilies - 2015 #1
This past week has seen the day
lilies here at the Gardens at Waters
East – “strut their stuff”.For whatever the reason, this year the
season has been good for day lilies and their blooms. Over the last eight
years, Gardens at Waters East has
hybridized more than four-hundred – never before seen on planet Earth – new and
let it be said - awesome day
lilies.It has been a project of
love; keeping track of the “parents” and “grandparents” the generations of all
the day lilies here in the gardens.Nice that the computer was invented – a great help!
There were way more photos taken during
the last weeks than could reasonable be posted so this year’s daylily review will
be limited to three posts of fifteen each.This will give a cross section of what has become a “hobby gone wild”.
The numbers associated with many
of the photos, relates to a computer code developed to keep track of the
ancestry of the plants.Many have
names but the codes are used most often.You will see that this gardener has a special affection for reds, love
that color in the garden.
Enjoy your walk in
the daylily fields here at Gardens at
