I have daylilies but I'm having a hard time finding out which is which. I badly labeled them and now my labels are all washed out. The only clue I have is the ones with labels I got from Gilbert H Wild. While the ones without labels are unknown ones I got for a dollar each on ebay. I think they are all beautiful regardless if they were a dollar and more than a dollar. So if you know maybe which one is which do say. I bought abstract art, cold harbor, eruption, lovely naomi, raindrop, ricky, ruffled valentine, sacred way, saucy sue, and windsor castle. I will put the name I think it is but it's just a guess since many pictures online vary in color.

Your daylilies are gorgeous, and I'm jealous that you can grow so many different kinds. What city do you garden in? And the sweet Balloon Flower is unfamiliar to me, very nice.

All of your flowers are so pretty but the photo angles and lighting are great. You really catch the colors and shadows of the flowers so well. Love all of them!

Very pretty flowers. I've got a couple of daylilies that I lost the names of, too. There are so many that are look alike, it would be hard to figure out their names, now.

Thanks for joining in for bloom day!

It's amazing how many beautiful things you're growing on your balcony. The dayliles are all simply gorgeous. I LOVE that flowering maple too. The bloom is really beautiful. Your photos are perfection.

Mary Beth said...

wow! Beautiful blooms and I agree that you can't have too many daylilies! These aren't all container grown, are they?

Vanillalotus said...

Thank you all for the wonderful comments. As always I appreciate what you have to say about my photos! I do love Daylilies and know one can never have enough. Yes all my Daylilies are grown in containers, it's the only way I can grow them. Surprisingly they are doing well but will need to be separated and given more space at the end of the year. Thank you again for all stopping by. I do check out everyones website I just don't have time to comment on everyones blog.

Hi again Vanillalotus, WOW what great photos of your blooms :-)

Your lilies are wonderful but it was the Bella Red Grapefruite Abutilon that really caught my eye! I also loved the fountain grass :-D

Enjoy the rest of your week :-D
