      We would have to travel to another garden and another time to ask someone else LolaWi. Maybe a play off the name ‘pollywog’ AKA tadpole. But that is just a wild guess on my part. There have been some 95,000 daylilies named and registered over the years. The names are just another part of the story. Thanks lolaWi !

    beautiful! It won’t be long before the newbies are out again…nice photos that you post are almost as sweet as the real thing… we had some snow flakes the other day, sure they won’t be the only ones.

      No those snow flakes will not be the last. Hopefully these pics will help us span the time waiting for warmer sunrises. Be well Gradmama and enjoy the season and its gifts.

        best holiday wishes to you too, John. I enjoy photos of flowers, especially daylilies, all year round…there is something so expressive about them….always dependable.

    Be it virtual or real it is your garden so to speak. So go for it. For my part I have enough trouble keeping track of both names and place in the garden so I hope you won’t mind if I pass on the renaming fun 😉 ! I slash we just finished this fall’s re-jumbling of the garden to make room for the new seedlings and old survivors. Because next year there will be more than a few times Suzie and I ask the question ‘where did we put that one’ and ‘is it still here?’ Thanks Jane.
