Larry's Obsession

About three months ago, I began an odyssey that took me to places that, in my life long journey as a gardener, I never would have imagined. It all began with a daylily seedling.

A great article on the basics of daylilies.
Also a great article on how plant addictions start. We have been there with irises.
With irises, climate and soil can make a huge difference with form and color. I would not be surprised to find that the same is true for daylilies.

Thanks for the compliment, coboro! You're absolutely right about climate and soil making a difference with daylilies as well. One of the strangest things happening to some of my beautifully colored irises is that they start blooming white. Go figure.

Your addiction began much as my own: a few daylilies and then some research on the internet and, bingo, I was hooked!

Great article.
