A Second Look - Hybridized Day Lilies 2015 part 2

Part 2 of a two-part posting:
In early August of this year (see archives) many photos were posted of the hybridized day lilies created here in the Gardens at Waters East.  This posting will show some additional photos of those plants and more.


In this gardener’s mind, the most unique plants that grow here are the hybridized Day Lilies that were “created” here on the property.  It all started eight (8) years ago in 2007 and continued for an additional two years.  At this point this year, the lilies really did put on a show for the summer blooming season.  It has taken them a few years to mature – and this year they were at their best.
More than 450 different hybridized day lilies were developed here that exist no place else on Earth – some of them sort of “not so good”, but some are really excellent specimens – rather beautiful to say the least!  All are coded for reference to the “parents” and even “grandparents” giving a history of the development of these unique plants.



Some can be noted because of their color, some for their unique patterns and markings, some for their multiple blooming, some for their super strong stems, some for their scents and fragrance.  All were a surprise since this gardener had never done anything like this before!

Enjoy viewing the unique 2015 day lilies of the Gardens at Waters East

  1. WOW! If I had the room,I would want one of each of those growing on my yard.

  2. 10 !!!!! postings came into my box at once. Don't know which is most impressive but each is great.

  3. What an inspiration! Those are beautiful!
    I have about 50 daylily seedlings that I hybridized myself this year. I can only hope a few are as beautiful as your photos.
