Nearly Black Daylilies




July is the month that the heat loving
plants come into play.
The darkest daylilies I have are nearly black.
Yesterday it was above 100 degrees
outside and these flowers stood tall, strong
and never thought about wilting.
(It's been around 100 for a few days now.)
By itself the color might seem too bold,
but put them next to green boxwood,
lemon-lime-colored angelina sedum
and a little variegated silver queen
and they look rather subdued!





This weekend I was reading
that daylilies are edible.

Your hot weather has been making news here in Italy! I've never thought to plant daylilies but after seeing several photos on garden blogs, I think I'll give them a try next year. The colors on yours are so dramatic!
