we are not in Kansas anymore

There I go again.  Spending the night talking to Toto.  Hey Dorothy where are we now ?  Toto how many times do I have to tell you ?  We are walking down memory lane looking at last summer’s garden.  And no I don’t remember how we got here !  See any more sparkly red shoes ?  There is a dog biscuit in this for you !  Okay let’s drift back to last summer’s garden.  And flowers that are not in Kansas anymore.  And I for one am very glad this one has made its way to my garden, even if its mode of travel was very mundane.

12G-003 Starman's Quest x Stargate Portal det

Pay no attention to the name.  It has nothing to do with how the flower arrived.  Starman’s Quest x Stargate Portal.  Thanks so much Debbie !

      Natalie, I am glad you enjoy the flower. I agree it is a beauty. The names are of the two parent plants that Debbie crossed to get this seedling. I am so glad she shared it ! Thanks !

    The ones they sell at Home depot and Costco are all yellow or orange. I was with my mother at Home Depot to buy daylilies. We didn’t find other colors. The ones you show here are beautiful.

      renxkyoko, There are hundreds of gardens specializing in daylilies that sell over the internet. And they do sell other colors besides orange and yellow. One place to start looking is the American Hemerocallis Society source list – http://www.daylilies.org/AHSsource.html. Another place to look is daylilyfans.com. You may even find a garden that is close to where you live. (search ‘daylilies’ and your state ) Often they will have open garden days during the summer. A visit to a garden in full bloom is something to see. You will also find that the prices match the range of colors and varieties. However there are many more $5 daylilies to choose from than the latest collectors daylilies. I hope you find something that you like.
