New day lilies

Waiting to be planted

In July of 2008, I planted 300 day lily sets on the bank above my driveway. They’re thriving, and they should start blooming later this month. All these day lilies are the humble orange “railroad” lilies like the ones that grow wild.

And now an old friend (who happens to be the best gardener I’ve ever known) has sent me six varieties of exotic day lilies. They came from Stout Gardens.

I think the most interesting of the lot is the “Joan Senior,” a white day lily that I assume is named for Joan of Arc, one of whose symbols is the fleur de lys.
