Daylilies in sizzling summer shades of pink, purple, orange, red and yellow will create a carnival of color at Specialty Growers during our annual Daylily Dig Open House on Saturday, July 21.
These newest floral sensations include the amazing “Ruby Spider”
with flowers up to 7 inches across, the deep saturated purple “Nosferatu,”
and two delightfully true-pink daylilies, “Stolen Treasure” and
“Passionate Returns.” Among the brand new introductions are the
purple-on-purple “Storm Shelter” and “Orange Smoothie,” a
delicious-looking light orange with deeper orange markings.
enthusiasts will find a rainbow-colored assortment of early,
midseason and late blooming daylilies, including many
traditional favorites, available in containers or in the
nursery’s magnificent daylily field. Our experienced staff
members will assist customers in choosing their favorite
daylilies, and then dig, custom-divide and package the plants
for easy transport.
The Specialty Growers daylily field will be open daily
throughout the entire month of July, so daylily lovers can
continue to add to their garden plantings. Five other specialty
gardens featuring ornamental grasses, native plants, hostas,
woodland plants and xeric (dryland) plants also will provide
creative landscaping ideas and themes.
