Answering Angels

Larry's ObsessionLarry's Obsession
By LarryR on February 27, 2014

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.

Gorgeous! I bought this locally at the Abbeville LA Daylily Festival June 2013. I saw a picture on its label and had to have it. It is a slow grower, so I only have 2 plants after all this time. Last fall I moved it to a full sun location, so this year it grew and bloomed well early in April. I call it LSU colors because it's a creamy gold background color with wine markings. A real treasure, but not especially easy to grow.
