PJ8 - I have literally dozens of different varieties and hundreds of plants but this one you pictured is my favorite too. It stands so tall and proud and the bicolor is so pretty. My next one is a ruffled thick yellow one which was completely chomped down by deer early this morning. I watched them thru my bedroom window and by the time I got to shoooo them away it was gone.

When I was a professional designer I always encouraged clients to invest in daylillies. They are the best deal for the money but certainly not if you have the unreal deer problem we have here. Thanks for posting the picture.

PJ8....That is gorgeous!! Thank you so much for sharing the picture....truly a beautiful daylily! I've got one that's called Raspberry Ice that is a beauty too. Unfortunately, it's incredibly slow to divide, but I cherish every bloom! LOL

PJ8 I love the color combination of that daylily.

My old garden had about 7 or 8 different varieties of daylily but there was not too many flowers to be had because the deer managed to eat quite a few, starting in the spring which also kept them stunted. As soon as I figure out how to post them I'd love to put up some pictures from my current/new garden. Maybe I should try and get a few shots that are good first. LOL My day lilies are not quite as spectacular to look at as those gorgeous things though!! They are still a favorite because they have been incredibly resilient!

I bought 6 or 7 small pots of them 2 years ago. They were supposed to be a pale yellow version of Stella D'oro. The first year they were exactly that but did not grown very much. I was happy to see them return last year, but had to dig them all out as the landscapers arrived in an early spring snow and we had trees and shrubs put in. After dividing them as much as I could to fill in blank spots on the plan I didn't have much hope, especially as temps soared into the upper 80's and low 90's 2 weeks later! Amazingly all 16 divisions took off and bloomed for a good long time, looking a bit taller and fuller than the previous year. This year they came back and are closer to a full sized than dwarf day lily! One of my neighbor's daughter stopped by today and asked for a few divisions when I am ready to split them. They just are wrapping up a first "flush" of blooms that was pretty neat to see.

I have a large sage bush that will not die, though I cut it way back continually. Also the lilies and gladiolas, and herbs such as chamomile and thyme, mint. Surprised my beautiful chive plants survived the winter and now have their lovely purple blooms.

I think I have that daylily, although the dark color seems to be a little lighter on mine....it was here when I moved into the house. It's one of my favorites.

The deer did a number on my roses this year. They didn't touch the dayilies though, due to liquid fence. I didn't put them on the roses because I like to smell them. That was a mistake.

Probably my favorite plants that come back every year are the hydrangeas and foxglove.
