Daylilies - the final count ( I think)

Ok, the count was 19.
Here is the last of the stella d'oros(20):
Here are some labels I found of day lilies I've planted in the yard:
L to R the labels read "Rajah" , "Catherine Woodbury", and "Wine Delight"
hmm. I s'pose I could match those up with some in my yard. The orange 'Rajah' could be any of 3 of them, though.

I did go back and compare two of the dark reds in the yard, which are identical, as you can see, so that brings the count to 19 again.


This one, of course, has no name, but is # 20.


Bad pic here -
but I do know the name: 'Raspberry Pixie' , which counts as #21!


This one is smaller than the other strong yellow. This one is almost green in color, and counts as # 22.

hmm. Could be 'Rajah' . Or not. But # 23, for sure.

I do believe I've inventoried the yard, and twenty three different types of daylilies may seem like a lot to some, but I know there are gardeners out there with many more than this!

You continually amaze me with your lovely flowers. I can only grow weeds. Although, my tomatoes are doing well this year.

NINETEEN!? All I have are those ditchbank ones. I bought a bag from Costco but it was late in the season and none of them made it. I guess they all died in the bag before I even got them home to plant. Yours are beautiful.

My interest in daylilies grows every time I read a post like this one. Beautiful!
