Green Thumb Sunday
Several years ago, before I started keeping records, I ordered two daylilies, one that was supposed to be white with a green center for the (now defunct) Green Garden and one that was supposed to be purple for the Purple Garden. The white one didn’t survive its first winter and when I saw no sign of the purple one amongst the asters where it was supposed to provide color until the asters bloomed, I assumed that it also did not survive.
This spring, I noticed distinctive daylily foliage growing among the asters. Then a flower stalk with actual buds appeared. It kept me in suspense for days. Today, it finally bloomed.
The photo is deceptive. In person, it is a muddier, orangier color. Quite ugly, in my opinion. I definitely like the picture better!
