Worth the Money

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

With all the hot weather we have had, there are not as many plants blooming right now.  Usually, at this time of year, most plants are still flowering.  I think the extremely high temperatures we had in June has a lot to do with so many plants not blooming.  Maybe when things cool off a bit later on in September, the flowers will show up again.

Three daylilies that have really proven their worth are starting on their third bloom cycle.  I can’t believe how well these have done this year.  This third flush of blooms is not a paltry few flowers; it is as prolific as the first.  An unnamed pink, Misty Mayhaw, and Mac the Knife certainly were worth every penny I paid for them.

    Lovely blooms. It is always satisfying to have new plants perform well, isn’t it?
    Makes our investment worth the money for sure. Nice post as usual.

    These are very pretty Daylillies. My Stella D’Oro and some other yellow Daylilly is about to bloom again.

    I especially like the unnamed pink. We’ve had a good year for daylilies too. Buttered Popcorn is repeating and Moonlight Masquerade had an extremely long bloom time.
