LA Lily hybrid
True lilies are easily determined by their stems and leaves. True lilies have a single stem with leaves from top to bottom. They have real bulbs with scales. The blooms are at the top of the stem and last for several days.
Brocaded Gown, my favorite yellow.
After I made pics of what I thought was the first Daylily bloom, I discovered faded blooms from yesterday and the day before. This is the first I saw. Many other Daylilies have fat buds. There are three clumps that I remember moving but do not remember the color, which will be a surprise. I also moved Pandora's Box which had almost ceased blooming where it was under a Dogwood tree. It may still be in too much shade under a Crape Myrtle but I hope morning sun will encourage it.
My plan for plantings around the greenhouse was to have shades of white flowers and shades of green including chartreuse. Right off, my seedling Gerberas turned out half of plants were not white flowers. Now my Lily is not white. I can move it and bring in cream colored Lilies, Or I can enjoy it as it is. So much for my 'Claus Dalby' plan which I thought would look cool in hot summers. I may settle for kewl instead and introduce a little more pastel orange.
The north side of the greenhouse is according to plan with tiny Gardenia cuttings now starting to grow with Kalanchoes in between as temporary space fillers. Immediately Sassafras suckers came up, much to close to the structure to leave.
Long-range plan for the east end is to stop sticking empty plastic pots and other undesirables back there and root white Azaleas that have a long period of bloom and open early in a sheltered spot. The greenhouse will shade them from evening sun but they'll get bright light.
