Oh yes daylilies do. Well gardens aren’t always sedate. Though it would seem they are mostly discrete. Here are two daylilies that did. Fortunately they were mostly discrete so they have not been evicted from the garden. This is Little Rainbow and Open Hearth. Little Rainbow is a small 2 inch flower, pink, yellow and dainty. Just a bit of the full rainbow, yet enough of the rainbow to make us stop and look. And look again. Open Hearth is from another part of the garden. It is a 9 inch bloom and a firey mix of red and yellow. Someone must have been out of control when these two were put together. Remember that is a great dane standing next to that tea cup chihuahua !
Of course this means that the result of this unusual union will be taller than either parent and the bloom will be size wise somewhere between the two parents. This is the result… Rainbow Afterglow, a 4 inch bloom on a 32 inch tall plant.
So do watch where you step in the garden. Nature is at work.
