Like most other gardeners, I am a fan of daylilies. They are such dependable elements in the garden I doubt I have a mixed bed anywhere that doesn't have at least one daylily in it. When it came time to populate my Moonlight Garden with white flowers I didn't even think about daylilies since they just don't come in white. But then when I was putting my order in last year from Oakes Daylilies I took a peek at what they list as 'Near Whites'. As I guessed most of them were just really pale shades of yellow or peach. But then I spotted 'White Temptation' and after reading the reviews I thought I would give it a try. Sure enough although it has a yellow center it is close enough to white to stay in the white garden, and I am pretty strict about flowers that get a pass in this area!
