Daylilies in the spotlight

While we were on a 2 week vacation, I was wondering what had bloomed and what would be blooming when I got home. Well - the most prolific are the daylilies!!
The one above is a tetraploid that I've had for years - so glad it hasn't converted into a mediocre orange "ditch" lily (that happens sometimes…)

As I walked around the garden, I discovered a number of them blooming…

Here's another original from 25 years ago: 'Whimsical'

'Mateus' is a dainty striped beauty

My Dad gave me this one but I have lost the tag :(

'Jay' is almost burgundy in real life but photographs dark red

I have many Sweet Williams scattered throughout the yard

Platycodon grandiflorus (Balloon flower) is at its peak

Achillea 'Coronation Gold' are a strong yellow atop sturdy stems

Helenium (Sneezeweed) is like a yellow daisy

If you trim back Spirea 'Anthony Waterer' after blooming, it will bloom again in the fall!
