with you HERE.
I planted some new varieties of daylilies in 2008
and although they have not gotten big and bloomed profusely
like the large orange ones I already have,
this one blooms every year--I think it is
the Bitsy--a 2002 winner.
Due to wide zone adaptability, the Bitsy can be grown
just about anywhere. It is great combined with
I saw this spiky-flower long before I had a garden and
always admired it because it makes such a bold statement.
I planted four of these in 2008, but the spikes are not as
colorful this year. I will have to read up on them.
It is a Flamenco, or better known as a Red Hot Poker.
They require full sun and get 18-24" tall.
The spikes do not last very long so you have to enjoy
them while they are there.
Mine seem to bloom one after another so that is nice.
We also have lots of hummingbirds and I managed
to snap one. See him there on the left?
The feeder is really active around dinner time.
Lots of diving bombing and noise!
They are fun to watch.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Hope your summer is going great.
