Good Old Boy

Now that we have multiple new daylilies blooming daily, I will be posting more frequently to keep on top of the pictures. Also, it's hard for me to come up with a new name for each post every other day, so I decided that the name will be of my favorite bloom for the post. So for today, my favorite bloom is of the daylily "Good Old Boy." This daylily is yellow-gold with a black-purple center, which also outlines its ruffles. It is very unique!

A funny thing happened to us today...we went out to see all the daylilies this morning and was expecting to see a bloom from "Copernicus," a light purple daylily. Once we saw it, it was definitely not the right one. We double-checked our list to make sure we had it in order, but came to the conclusion that the company that we bought the daylilies from sent us the wrong one. Instead, we now have a pastel apricot-peach with a red center daylily that produces double blooms. We believe we found the right one online and think its name is "Clueless." I'm not sure how I feel about the double ones, but it is very interesting looking.


Another one that I really liked is called "Mister Lucky." I like this one just because it is such a deep red color.

Next up is one that we actually got to see last year, but I thought I would share it with you all now. It is called "Showmanship."


Another large bloom that we have and very similar to "Sea Swept Dreams" is a yellow daylily with bronze petals called "Seaside Sunrise."

One on the lighter side is "Southern Exposure." It is just a small one, about 4.5", but the center is purple and slightly silver.

"New Perspective" joins us with two different petal colors. The first of its kind that we've seen so far.

Lastly, I'd like to share another picture of "Festive Fall." It bloomed again today with two flowers and it just looks so pretty! I really like the bright orange.

I am caught up with all of the new pictures (for now). I truly hope you all are enjoying the pictures as much as I am! However, I must say that the pictures don't do much justice for them as they are pretty remarkable in person.


  1. How wonderful to get up every morning and have these blooms to greet you! It would make it so much easier to get out of bed! Wonder if the birch leaf borers would leave daylilies alone, or would they devour them before they even bloom, just like they do any other flower I've tried to grow here. The "double" flowers look as though they need a little fine tuning in the genetics department.

    1. I'm not sure about the bugs eating the daylilies. Surprisingly, nothing here bothers them. They are a good start to our day, for sure!
