At 10 am, it was 86 degrees and 76% humidity, in the shade. I was afraid to look at one of those heat index formulas. Yesterday as we left the city of Tallahassee, FL at 5 pm, it was 104 degrees.
This little daylily is a seedling that was forgotten until it bloomed.
Planted among echinacea, it picks up the gold in the coneflower centers.
Will I never learn? Those little bags with the pretty printed picture on a cardboard label always get my attention. This was supposed to be 'Romantic Rose' but the only thing I can match to any description of it is that it is a dormant cultivar. It's hard to get the true color in bright sun, but it's a pretty pale pink.
