Little Missy

“Little Missy”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana 


This will be a short post since I am not feeling any better.  Of course, having to drag myself to work this morning so early and not feeling the best may have something to do with it.  But, I did want to share Little Missy, a daylily that started blooming yesterday.


Little Missy(redu)


I almost missed her flower.  It wasn’t until late afternoon when I took a quick walk around the garden, mainly to see if anything needed watering, and suddenly, there she was.  This is one of my big box store daylilies and one of the few to bloom true to name.  It is amazing how many plants are mislabled nowadays, but you have read my thoughts about this before, so I won’t bore you with another rant.

I hope everyone has a very nice Memorial Day.  Please remember to take time to think about the sacrifices our soldiers have made for our freedoms.

      Thanks, Kim, I think Little Missy is a great daylily for the front of the border.

    Interesting to hear you say your big box daylilies were mislabeled. I bought some in bags this year and have the same issue (my latest blog shows one of the mislabeled ones). I just wonder how they can ethically do that? I don’t really think it’s the big box stores’ fault as they’re just purchasing from a provider. It’s terribly frustrating though and I won’t make that mistake again. But enough rant, Little Missy is lovely.

      Jean, it is not just the big box stores that are having this problem of mis-marked plants. It has gotten to the point that I rarely buy anything that is not in bloom. I am just tired of being disappointed. Nurseries should demand that growers be more careful.
