06.09.2007 RUGGED ROADSIDE BLOOM
The wild daylilies, Hemerocallis fulva, have begun flowering everywhere they have become naturalized. These big hardy blossoms can't be missed. The magnificent blooms each last but one day, but fortunately there are enough buds that we can celebrate summer's arrival for several weeks. Another "invader," daylilies jumped from the home garden to the roadside shortly after their introduction to America from England in the 1600s.
