June is for Daylilies

We discovered hybrid daylilies many years ago and regard them as one of the best perennial flowers for the garden. They are about as “no muss, no fuss” as you can get with flowers! We’ve never had a problem with pests on them, and we rarely even fertilize the plants. They thrive, year after year, with little effort on our part. How can you beat that?

We divide the clumps up every 5-6 years and give extras away to friends. During the blooming season, we deadhead old blooms every couple of days so that the plants bloom longer and don’t put their energies into creating seed pods.

Here are some of beautiful blooms we are currently enjoying in our June flower gardens.
