"Lucky Thirteen"

Here are the “Lucky Thirteen”.  Gardens at Waters East has hybridized more than 450 different day lilies.  The photos posted today are thirteen of some of my favorites that bloomed this year.  There are many more but I thought thirteen would be enough.  If you want to see more of the many different hybridized day lilies here at the gardens, check back in the archives.  There are lots more photos of these very special plants.

NOTE:   Since this Blog is meant to be an accurate journal of the gardens;
no photos are “staged”, “arranged”, or ”photo-shopped” in anyway.
What is posted – is what it here.  It is what it is.

  1. Beautiful flowers. I think the Day Lily is a stunning flower.

  2. What a wide range of beautiful flowers. My garden here in York UK is quite moist and day lilies love my conditions. I increasingly push the boundaries of trying boggier conditions to see how they do - pretty well and yet in another of my gardens they withstand drought and shade.

  3. With this many - you could spend your whole blogging life doing nothing except recording them.
