Gentle Greetings Daylily
I had looked this one up on the Internet to see what I might expect from it last September. I was not familiar with this one at all. I found several Internet pictures and they were all quite different, as oftentimes is the case.
This is what I was expecting.:
Each time I buy a new daylily I am always surprised with a "free" plant in my delivery. It seems to be a common practice among growers. It also seems as though they are not just throwing their discards at you, but helping you to improve your garden with wonderful cultivars. Some growers keep lists of what they sell you and give you so there are never any repeats. Some of my favorite daylilies have been the bonus plants. And only one time in my years of collecting did I receive a bonus plant that was a duplicate of one I already had in my garden. How were they to know it was a gift from a friend?
I love this time of year, even though it is so hot this week I have not spent much time outside. But because of my daylilies, I can't wait to go in my garden each morning to see what plant has its "Gentle Greetings" for me.
