My vreugdes en frustrasies


WPC Temporary: Daylily

Daylily genus Hemerocallis

Daylily genus Hemerocallis

These daylilies, grown by my husband in huge quantities in our garden in Gauteng, South Africa, resulted in a mass colorful display every summer.

Daylilies typically last no more than 24 hours. The flowers of most species open in early morning and wither during the following night, possibly replaced by another one on the same flower stalk the next day (Wikipedia).

  1. Beautiful blooms and a very fitting choice for the challenge.

  2. Die blomme is elkeen pragtig. Ek moes dit net dadelik vir Bertus wys, hy is die tuinmaker van ons twee. Dit moet die mooiste gesig wees om ń klomp van hulle bymekaar te sien!

      Dit is Una. Ek onthou hoe het my man elke dag baklei dat iemand een van sy nuwe daylilies moet kom afneem. Ons was so “op” hiervoor dat ons hom later gewys het hoe om self die kamera te gebruik. Ek moes gister kies uit amper 2000 fotos!

    Beautiful daylilies and fabulous photos, YET again Hester you’ve shown me South African nature species I’d never heard of or seen before. Incidentally you can guess my mother would love to walk around your husband’s flower garden. 🙂

      Thank you, Andrew. Daylilies are not indigenous to South Africa. I think they originated from Asia, but they are very popular worldwide. Yes, gardeners always find something in the garden to talk about, don’t they? 🙂
