about six days ago the first daylily bloom of the 2022 season opened. opps yoda i need. this morning that event continued. not all early blooms are graceful. this one was tangle in the chain link fence. a little gentle handling and it was freed from its face plant. it is called Knower spider and while the bloom was at its normal 8.5 inch 22 cm the scape was not. it was less than half its 38 inch 96 cm listing. then again this plant should not be blooming until july. now to see how many more six days before the next flower opens. because there are a whole lot of scapes getting above the foliage. and all days or more from bloom…
glad you rescued it
Me too. It might be an awkward part of the start. But it is part of the start. Thanks
beautiful! but then I never met a daylily that I didn’t like! Is it just me or are all of the flowering plants and trees in a big hurry this year?
I think it is fair to say things are off to a quicker start this year. I would have to go back to last year to see how much faster. It does vary from year to year. Glad you enjoy the flower Gradma
Last year it seemed to me that the flower-blooming took its time, waiting politely for other varieties to make their entries before they arrived on the scene. Sort of like a fashion show, where each beautiful model waits her turn to sashay down the runway. (I suppose I should say “she or he or they.” 🙂
Welcome to the garden – it’s beautiful.
The face plants happen on the red carpet they can happen here. And yes it is beautiful.
What a beautiful yellow, with just a hint of purply- pink, or is it pink-y purple? Wonderful!
Here in Minnesota we don’t even have scapes yet.
But soon …
They are coming ! It is a bit difficult to wait when somebody just south of us has that bloom we are waiting for.
Bless it’s heart.
