It’s said that Daylillies are night scented, but so far I’ve seen no evidence of that. They’re tucked in below a butterfly bush and bordered by Lambs Ear and Poison Ivy. I’m in the process of yanking out all of the later. I’ll keep one because I do grow poisons after all.
I seem to remember that Daylillies got their name because they only bloom for a day. Mine stuck around two or three days before looking horrid, so maybe they like it there. They came back from last year, or was it the year before?
Warmer weather would help with night scents as well. But I’ll not complain about the cool nights.
A look at plants, ideas, resources, moon gardens, herbalism and how I became the witch’s gardener. Gardening with a history.
