|I need to pick some of y'alls brains. What can I grow in 2 small oval raised beds that would do well with daylilies? I finally got the 2 raised beds done from all those wall stones I got from the neighbor's yard make-over. Annuals? Perennials? What would look good and be compatible with the growing conditions. |
Both beds may get a little shade throughout the day. I do want to add a lot of daylilies to those beds. Mainly daylily seedlings that I have been growing from seed since this past Fall. They typically don't get that big the first year for me, but I may have to move some of them next year.
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters, compared to what lies within us.

|Your raised rock-border bed sounds beautiful, Becky! I love to grow snapdragons and carnations/pinks with my daylilies ... they stay perennial here and keep a steady bloom of color during the summer and fall, while the daylilies are coming in and out of bloom.|
I've got seeds to try a new snapper this summer, maybe to mix in with my red daylilies:

|Well, I have been accused of having no taste, but I love Purple Cone flowers with daylilies, of course they don't all have to be purple. I love zinnias and marigolds also with Daylilies, Cannas, I think it could be a huge list.|

|Seedfork, I like and second with all of those choices. Love dwarf cannas. |
Becky, how tall do you want them to be? I like Golden Oregano, Dianthus, Gaillardia, Thyme, "Nana" Coreopsis, and Gomphrena. Mexican Heather would do well in your area, I think.
You can tell a lot about a person by the way they handle these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.
