The daylilies I ordered from Oakes Daylilies arrived last week and are waiting to go into the ground. There are about two dozen of three varieties. 'Barbara Mitchell' is a pretty pink one that I have grown before along with 'Chorus Line', also pink but a smaller bloom. 'Louis Manelis**' is a small peachy colored one that was recommended in place of one that I ordered that does not do well in our area. We have to have the evergreen or semi-evergreen varieties because it doesn't get cold enough here for the dormant ones and the people at Oakes are good about contacting me if I order one that will be too challanging to grow in our area. I like to order from the Internet or a catalog because we don't seem to have a great variety of daylilies in the nurseries here. It is nice to have something in my garden that is not seen in every other yard on the block and I seem to be much more disciplined about sticking to one variety and ordering in bulk when I do it in my office as opposed to when I get to the nursery and get distracted with all the other plants! Now to wait for them to bloom!
** I had these down as 'Apricot Sparkles' which was the one I had originally ordered. Sorry!
