[ Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Rose Sensation') | Posted on October 2, 2021 ]

This is year two for Rose Sensation in my garden, and it produced its ffe this year. It is more lovely in real life than photos give it credit for. Although it is a bit slow to increase, I'm happy with this cultivar bc the blooms are so beautiful. It is worth the wait!! Smiling

[ Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Black Fury') | Posted on August 18, 2020 ]

Black Fury is an absolutely gorgeous black! Even though it is considered mid season without rebloom, it is still blooming with many more buds, as of today, 8.18.20! It increases nicely! The blooms don't like to open completely after a cooler night. Otherwise I couldn't be happier!! Smiling

[ Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Venetian Royalty') | Posted on September 16, 2019 ]

I've had this daylily for two years, and this is the first year that it sent up several blooms. (2019) Although the blooms are pretty, it is slow to increase and bloom time seems to be on the short side.

[ Diamond Grass (Calamagrostis brachyathera) | Posted on May 25, 2016 ]

Diamond Grass, Calamagrostis brachyathera, is a wonderful small ornamental grass that can be tucked into any 24-inch spot. It prefers a part-sun location, and it is striking when the plumes are lit from behind! Here in zone 6a, it is perfect for our small city perennial gardens!

[ Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Zoro's Blade') | Posted on May 25, 2016 ]

So striking in the garden, Hemerocallis 'Zoro's Blade' does not disappoint! It's blooms, of bright cardinal red, beckon the passerby to stop and relish in their mysterious beauty! The large-leafed fans increase rapidly, and it is a workhorse in the garden! Hemerocallis 'Zoro's Blade' is one of my favorite bright red daylilies, and it performs with ease in my zone 6a garden!

[ Cardinal Flower (Lobelia cardinalis) | Posted on May 18, 2016 ]

Cardinal Flower (Lobelia cardinalis) does best with consistently moist soil and morning sun, in zone 6a. It will stress during drought conditions, with its shallow roots, so mulch is a must. It's best to divide only in the spring or fall to keep shock at a minimum. Cardinal Flower draws the eye up in the garden and its blooms open going up the spike. It's just stunning in mass plantings!

One of my favorite perennials!

2.20.17 Update: Although one of my favorites, I'm very bummed to report that I had to take Lobelia cardinalis out of my garden, as it is high maintenance, due to it's high moisture requirement. We experience long periods of drought in July and August, and Lobelia cardinalis requires daily watering during drought. I prefer water wise gardening techniques, so my Lobelia cardinalis was sent to new homes. It really was stunning in my mass planting. I really hated to see it go....😪😪

[ Yarrow (Achillea millefolium 'Salmon Beauty') | Posted on May 17, 2016 ]

Yarrow (Achillea millefolium 'Salmon Beauty') has delicate, but wooly foliage. It performs well in hot afternoon sun, even in the narrow foundation border garden. Here in Zone 6a, Yarrow (Achillea millefolium 'Salmon Beauty') spreads nicely, and blooms prolifically all summer. It seems to attract more flies than bees, lol!

Water thoroughly in drought conditions. Clip off spent blooms and dead leaves that accumulate at the base of the plant to keep things neat and tidy. A "haircut" (cut the top 1/3) in mid season will yield a more prolific second bloom. In late fall, cut it down to about two inches above the ground. Each spring, new little Yarrow sprouts will pop up in random and unexpected places all over the property! It's a delightful perennial with a scent that reminds one of the scent of carrot foliage. Great for ground cover.....spreads quickly!! =D

[ Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Buffys Doll') | Posted on May 11, 2016 ]

'Buffy's Doll' multiplies prolifically in the garden. Cute as a button, but it's no "wallflower" by any means (no pun intended) with its punch of bright pastel color, and then it captivates up close, with its delicate ribbing! In zone 6a, this daylily performs well in hot, southern exposure conditions, and is compact enough to use in the front of a border.

[ Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Stella de Oro') | Posted on May 11, 2016 ]

'Stella De Oro' does not disappoint in the garden! It blesses your world with beauty and grace in nothing short of hot, hot full sun exposure and drought conditions! Here in Zone 6a, Stella is a staple in professional landscapes and steep hill plantings, with its long bloom season, and it is absolutely stunning in mass plantings, not to mention that it's water wise! =D

[ Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Raspberry Pixie') | Posted on April 25, 2016 ]

My 'Raspberry Pixie' daylilies grow to a *30 inch* scape height.......versus 12 inches, as noted in the details above.

They are thriving in a part shade location, where they receive only morning sun.
