At last!! The first Hemerocallis of 2016 to bloom in the nursery gardens is Hemerocallis “Canary Wings”. It is an Spider variety, 38″ tall, large (6″ to 8″) glazed lemon yellow flowers with a faint halo. I obtained this from Duncan Skene of Abraxas gardens (now sadly closed) several years ago & I hope to be able to propagate it for next season. It’s a lovely plant and one that is not readily available in the UK.
Hopefully this will be the start of the 2016 daylily season and I will be able to share pictures of my favourite varieties as well as post photos of some of my new seedlings many of whom are already in bud!!
