If you have visited my blog before you will be used to all sorts of strange plants--usually rather small ones--with even stranger stories. This posting will be something of a contrast--you will find precious few Latin or Cultivar names (at least the first part anyway). That's not what this post is about. What it's about is a remarkable gardener, Sabine Baur and her amazing garden. Which means it is about daylilies too!
I am appending a few pictures of individual daylilies with names--but these few shots are just for the spectacle of it. And it was one, believe me! Sit back and enjoy like I did...
The name of this one is a mystery.Life is a mystery after all!
I love this semi-double singleton in front of a sea of pastels!
The variety never ends...
And even more...
And a grand view of the Baur house...you should see the view looking out from within.
There are a few interlopers, like the giant roses in the middle (which make for a pleasant counterpoint..)
I love the drama of a bright color contrasted with a softer vista of color. I know you want names...they're coming!
I should have looked around for the name of this one!
Isn't this a stunner?
Another svelte closeup.
Some great containers and spreads of ice plants too--not ONLY Hemerocallis...
And a very handsome specimen of variegated Box Elder (Acer negundo 'Variegatum')
After showing so many unnamed cultivars, I found a few named ones in my files form Denver Botanic Gardens taken last year--I realize it's a feeble effort--but at least I've salvaged a shred of my reputation by including a few hard data!
