Some weekend time in the garden made me very aware of how far along some of my daylilies were already.

A few (Thin Man & Scarlet Orbit, in particular) got too far ahead of the curve, so sub-freezing temps zapped all their new growth. I THINK the crowns are okay.

Some of my clumps are looking pretty darn good. I know they may look weird to folks not used to growing in pots, but I'm happy as a clam so far.

Here are a few pots of summer/fall acquisitions that have filled out nicely over the winter.

How are your clumps looking? Still under snow? Not yet showing any green? I'm curious!

They are looking absolutely great! It was 82 degrees today and boy oh boy did the daylilies enjoy that. Hurray! Especially since I sprayed for aphids yesterday morning.

Your plants are looking good. You are a smidge ahead of mine. We have been getting some warm temps for a few days, then temps drop down to 20 degrees and knock them back. Just normal early spring temps that they come through just fine. Last year we had a really warm March, then April was the coldest on record and I lost a couple of struggling daylilies. I know, most of you had the same experience, but I still whine about it *Blush* just hope it does not repeat this year.

Ken, here are pictures of 3 of my daylily boxes. When you see plastic fencing or chicken wire cages, these are meant to discourage marauding Marsh rabbits that live down here on the beach. They are a major pain!

Those look amazing, @florange! I like the idea of boxes...I'll probably go there once I get a bit older and the arthritis gets worse (yep...osteoarthritis in my hands at 53).

I'm sorry about the marsh rabbits. I see rabbits every once in a blue moon, but not many. My neighbor has an outdoor cat, so...

Someone has been chewing on my Star Dream fans as they first come up...chewing the leaves right off. Not sure if it's the cat, or a chipmunk, or squirrel, or even the little possum I saw early the other morning.

I've been lucky (knock faux-wood grain on desk).

No deer at all. I live in the city. From above, it really is a dinky little yard.

Arlene the rabbits around here chew through the plastic fence like butter. Clumps are looking lovely.
