“No Resistance”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana
No resistance. Recently, I have found that when it comes to daylilies, I have no resistance. If I see one in bloom, I succumb and have to have it. Last Friday, my number 1 sister and I went shopping. Of course, that included plant nurseries. Even though it was blisteringly hot, we trudged through aisle after aisle finding a few plants that we just had to have.
Having decided to plant more blooming perennials, and having such good luck with daylilies, as soon as I saw these blooming beauties, I quickly scooped them up. (Remember after having purchased so many mislabeled plants, I now only buy those that have an open flower.) All the ones I purchased had many unopened buds which would mean I would enjoy a few flowers this year. The first one is Elizabeth Salter, a lovely rose-colored daylily.
Chicago Apache, a lovely red daylily, found its way into my entry garden.
The next three had were unlabeled, so I don’t know the names, but that doesn’t matter, they will still add color to the pink garden area.
Having daylilies that bloom at different times, makes giving up the annuals I used to plant easy to do. Resisting the impulse to buy more pretty daylilies seems to be impossible.
