My favorite phrase this time of year is "daylilies are scaping!". No, they are not escaping, but are sending up scapes (stems), which have flower buds on them, and soon they will bloom. Many plants seem to be much earlier than usual this year, so bloom time should begin in the next few weeks.

These are 2 of the early blooming daylilies - the yellow one is H.(hemerocallis) ssp. Korean #2, a native/species daylily which was collected in Korea. The orange one is "Apricot", the first hybridized daylily (1893). Both are available for purchase. We're open Sundays, from 10:00-4:00, and by appointment.
