The daylilies stopped blooming before I was quite ready for the show to be over, so I went in search of late-blooming dark reds to round out the collection. I ended up with four plants from Oakes Daylilies.
Blood Spot (dreadful name) is a nice dark red.
Crimson Shadows comes highly touted as a rich, dark red.
This one is Chicago Apache, said to be a good rebloomer.
Then I had to stray into the fragrant yellows and chose Lemon Lollypop (sic).
This is another fragrant re-bloomer. Oakes was kind enough to send a freebie, Tender Love.
A rebloomer that has won an award for fragrance! We’ll see.
I am very pleased with their service: came on time, well packed, free plant, and four of the five were abundant enough that I got two or three plants from each one.
