This rich yellow day lily is blooming in my front garden.
These are a lovely rose pink.
A stand of classic orange day lilies share a bed with bright red cannas.
Early summer is the season for day lilies. These hardy perennials grow from tubers and will spread over a larger area each year if given some room. They are beautiful for several weeks then devote themselves to growing and storing up energy for the next year. They are remarkably hardy and propogate easily from a start.
During the dust bowl and depression days many Oklahoma farmers abandoned their homes and migrated west. Today the only signs of these homesteads are crumbling foundations and bright orange clumps of day lilies planted long ago and still thriving.
