May 2016 Garden Bloggers Bloom Day: It's All About the Daylilies!

This Bloom Day,  it's all about the daylilies here on my corner of Katy!   It's also an occasion for the Head Gardener to lament my inability to properly label my daylilies when I plant them or move them, thereby leading to our inability to identify many of them by name. Please feel free to let us know if you recognize any of them!  

I am a sore disappointment to the HG but she remains hopeful that I will work to overcome this unfortunate flaw in my character and that someday all of the daylilies here at Wit's End will be properly identified.  But until that day, any blog posts on the subject of Hemerocallis will be sadly remiss in the identification area. While the HG puts on her big girl panties and deals with it, on with the show! CARPE HEMEROCALLIS!   FYI: It's been raining since Saturday so the blooms are a bit soggy. 

Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day is celebrated on the 15th of every month and is hosted by the intrepid Indygardener, who blogs at May Dreams Gardens.  Check out what's blooming in her garden and gardens around the world!

You have a nice selection! Some of them look familiar, like I've seen them in catalogs before, but I didn't immediately recognize any. You should come over and see my daffodils.

Hello in Katy, Tx. Enjoyed all the Daylily photos. You have some beautiful blooms. I special ordered a single Daylily last year from Canada, just because of the name, and I'm waiting anxiously to see it's blooms. Here in Springfield IL they have not yet come into season.

I love, love daylilies! It's a treat to see all of yours, Cindy, because they won't be blooming here for at least another month. A couple of them look similar to something I have, but I couldn't begin to identify them. I used to remember the names of all my daylilies, but many of the labels have been lost now and I have a lot of mystery plants every summer:)

I had to leave my daylily bank when we moved to town, but I am starting to build a new collection. They are such wonderful plants. So varied.
