Summer Foliage (1 of 3)
       

If Spring is here can Summer be far away?  No!  By the magic of Pictures Summer is now officially here!!  Summer has glorious connotations for the Gardens.  It is the peak time for Daylily bloom and begins the peak for many Annuals and Perennials.  Dahlias start to show blooms by Mid to Late Summer and Roses are continuing with their performance right on to Fall.

Of course the "piece de resistance" of Summer is the modern hybrid Daylily.  Over 50,000 varieties have been introduced since the 1950's.  Thousands of hybridizers both big and small are working on one of our favorite sun perennials.  The daylily flower only lasts one day but that bloom's one day of glory can be magnificent.  Today's Daylily has ruffles, wide edges in different colors and bold and flaring eye zones to add to its beauty.  We currently grow 1,000 cultivars exhibiting a wide range of colors, eyes, ruffling and edges.  Here are some of them.

What's prettier than a single Daylily bloom?  How about 50,000 or so?  When the five or six weeks of Daylily bloom season arrives it can be very special.  Literally thousands of blooms every day for over a month.  One thousand clumps with ten scapes each carrying and average of twenty flower buds equals 200,000 blooms not counting rebloom.  Here is what peak Daylily bloom season looks like.
