Daylilies are "scaping"!

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.

There will be a "Daylily Open House" from August 3rd - 5th, from 8:00 - 5:00 each day.  This will be a great opportunity to see many of the plants in bloom.   Since the season has started a bit eariler than usual, the few weeks prior will also be great times to visit.   The farm is open Sundays, from 10:00 - 4:00, and also by appointment.  Hope to see you there!

Early Bloomers!

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.
