It's been day lily season now for nearly 3 weeks, certainly the brightest time of the year in our garden. This tall yellow day lily was the first to bloom, all by itself on the first day, and continuing in large groups of blooms every day.
My favourites are the brightest ones, preferably bright orange, like this 'Saugeen Sunrise'.
There are two or three dozen other varieties, from pale cream coloured to deep purple. This deep red and yellow/green one is another early one.
