In Western Pennsylvania day lilies grow wild by the road side. They are always a plain orange color. They naturalize so vigorously that some people think of them as weeds and pull them out. They are available in a wide variety of colors. We tend to eschew the very popular Stella D’oro variety and plant different colors. I love the dark purple and red day lilies. This year we planted this one not knowing what color it would be and got this pleasant surprise.
Lily week continues in the garden. The beautiful day lilies in our back garden continue to bloom. In our front garden though is where our white lilies live. In my opinion this is the queen lily growing a little taller than the rest and in pure bridal white a true beauty!
