“Double Daylilies”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana
I love frilly flowers. Occasionally, the simple flower form does appeal to me, but in general it is the double, frilly, full flowers that I can’t get enough of.
Two double daylilies just started blooming. The first is Vanilla Fluff. See for yourself. Isn’t it gorgeous?
I purchased this particular daylily at a garden show in the fall of 2008. The only thing I had to go on was a photo. I don’t think that photo did this flower justice. Otherwise, I would have bought more than two.
The next double is the old fashioned orange. My Number 1 sister gave this to me last year after she received it from my mother’s neighbor. It is very vigorous. This is only the second year it has been in my garden, and already it has multiplied nicely.
I don’t usually like orange flowers, but I am finding that the color is starting to grow on me. Without realizing it I have added more orange to the garden. It is funny how our tastes can change. My color preferences may change, but I don’t think my love of double flowers ever will.
