    These are just a few of my flowers to date. They are beautiful this year. Don't know if it is because we had such a cold, snowey winter. Enjoy.

    Those are beautiful. Of course, everything in NC blooms earlier than in your area, so my lilies are long gone.

    They are beautiful.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I looked at these pictures and thought, "interesting, I have all of these exact same daylilies in my yard." Checked your location. We must visit the same nurseries! They are beautiful by the way.

    I like your variety of colors....Do you split yours when they get thick??? I have several that appear to be ready, but I've never done it and don't know how....kinda nervous to dig up my plants risking killing them.
    Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    For the last 2 to 3 years I have been down sizing my garden, which ment I had to get rid of allot my day lillies. Most are hybrid but I am getting along in age and it is getting harder to take care of. They are a tough plant so don't worry about hurting them to thin out. Dig them out and pry with a shovel and pitched fork to seperate in smaller clumps. Most of what you are seeing were done the past few years.

    I have to disagree with you about that. If you moved to FL from up north and brought daylilies with you that you grew there, yes those daylilies will soon fade away to nothing. That is because they are dormants and FL doesn't get cold enough for them. If you switch to semi evergreen and evergreen types, they thrive here.. A couple of big name hybridizers Like David Kirchoff and Mort Morss used to have their garden Daylily World over in Sanford FL for years until development around the garden destroyed the drainage for their garden. They then moved to Kentucky.
    But semi evergreen and evergreen daylilies do very well in FL . If you are in North FL check out the daylily clubs up there. Pensacola and other cities like Lake City . Check out the AHS website for Region 12 clubs. I belong to the Tampa Bay Area Daylily Club.

    Stunning flowers. We are still waiting for ours, a few more months yet as it's winter down here in New Zealand.
