do you see ?

when there are literally hundreds of flowers our perceptions and interests can allow a flower to hide in plain sight.  so our eyes can lead our feet right past other flowers.  three images and i hope a happy new year for us all…

      Colorado and higher elevation if I remember right. Also on the dry side. The simple answer is there are daylily growers in Colorado, like the Denver area. The higher and drier the more interesting it gets. Six hours of sunlight and a decent amount of rain during the spring and early summer and or some good mulch . Sorry I cannot put a more specific measure to the moisture. It could be a challenge and it might be worth the try. What kind of wildflowers grow there during the summer ?

        My place is around 6800 elevation, iffy on moisture without supplemental watering – for sure 6 hours of sunlight, and have a protected area on south side of place for more picky on warmth/water species -. The flowers that survive/thrive with little to no help from me are: Irises, Wild Poppies, dandelions, prairie sunflower, some Tulip species, wild roses, lilacs, clover, alfalfa and low growing, ground cover like daisies – sorry, but haven’t yet figured out what the tiny, small to ground flowers that come in purple and white varieties – They aren’t invasive or nuisances and only appear if we have a warm stretch in spring (April) if we get one or more blizzards in April/May, They don’t show up – 🙂 no matter how much spring showers happen – 🙂

    I am so bad. I was not paying close attention and confused this conversation with another day’s plant. This is a seedling. I should have said – under development. It is one of my crosses. The plant was moved to a ‘further review’ bed last spring. And this is a picture from last summer’s bloom. I was not intentionally trying to lead you on about the plant.
