Like Being in a Candy Store

Remember what it was like to be a youngster in a candy store?  All those choices just staring you in the face!
A friend and I visited a daylily grower a couple of weeks ago and for anyone in Ontario, it was Nottawasaga Daylilies near Creemore.  Between the display gardens and the potted plants in alphabetical order, I felt like a kid again.  The reblooming varieties rank high on my list as did the acquisition of more lavender-coloured flowers.  I restrained myself and only bought 6 plants.
The lavender hues came with names like 'Druid's Chant', 'Blue Venum' and 'Blueberry Breakfast'.  My favourite of them is 'Druid's Chant'.
I'm linking with Little Red House for Mosaic Monday and Tootsie Time for Fertilizer Friday.

  3. The lavender daylilies are really special. We had a neighbor that had a field of all different colors in NC and they sold them. It sure was beautiful when they were all in bloom.

  16. Stunning photos, Judith. I loved seeing the daylilies enmasse. I love the lavender ones too, especially the one you showed as a single photo - it's beautiful! Daylilies are truly a wonderful part of the garden. I adore them! I don't have many that are lavender in color. On my daylily wishlist: some white ones for my moon garden, which I'm moving and greatly enlarging next spring. I also want some spiders. Have a wonderful week, Judith!

  19. Judith,

    Those Daylilies are stunning. It is funny that I was just looking at Daylilies in the blue range, and here tou have such a lovely array. I believe I now Need Blueberry Breakfast.
