Plant Experimentation: Daylilies from Amador, Day 2.

I ordered some daylilies from Amador Flower Farms. They had pretty good prices, and I had read that daylilies would do pretty well in my area. They showed up, but I couldn’t plant them right away, so they were starting to look a little peaked, even sitting in water. But I got them planted yesterday, so hopefully they will perk up quickly.

The first one is the Allegretto daylily.

The picture on the website showed it to be a pink flower, with a lavender coloring in the middle of the flower.

The next one is called Awakening Dream.

This one is supposed to be a cream colored flower, with a circle of lavender in the middle and yellow inside of that.

The next is Dark Star daylily.

The flowers of this one are supposed to be more of the spidery style, and should be purplish color with yellow in the center.

The last one I ordered was Lavender Dew.

This one is supposed to be a light purple color with lines of white going down the petals. Beautiful. I was running out of the larger pots though, and this was the smallest one, so for the moment, it is in a pot that is probably too small for it. Hopefully it will be okay for now. As soon as I make it back over to the nursery, I will grab a pot of the proper size and get it potted up.

In addition to the five I ordered, I also received a bonus plant. This one is Winning Ways, which is supposed to be have bright yellow flowers. It is also listed as having dormant foliage, as opposed to evergreen like the others, so we will see what happens with them.

Daylilies are supposed to be very hardy and tolerant of neglect, so I have high hopes that these will spring back very quickly. The only thing I am worried about at the moment is the black pots, since it will soon be getting very hot. But they should only be getting sun from the morning until about noon or so. Hopefully they will thrive in that.
