I have hundreds maybe thousands of the bright orange flowers. There was a good stand of them on the property when we moved into this Cape Girardeau house. Too bad these flowers don’t get frequent traveler points. Many of them are well traveled. They have taken many trips in my wheelbarrow.
Because I have so many, they tend to get planted en masse. The daylilies are planted along a bank that is too steep to mow. I’ve never seen the triple blooms like these I’m sending you.
You often find daylilies naturalized in ditches of abandoned homes and farmland. Most often, we see the orange single blooms. There are lots of these “ditch” flowers in Kansas.
They may be named daylilies because they only last a day. Each plant has several blooms. I’m sending you bunches that will last for days, maybe weeks.
Becky, I’m sending you lots of bright orange daylilies. No fragrance, but great big bold orange flowers. I’m sending this bouquet of old fashioned flowers in a large, Fiesta ware peacock (Aqua) disk pitcher. Enjoy!
