I ending up using some weed killer in some of the areas. I have been trying to use less poison in the ground. I want to nurture the ground as well as have beautiful gardens. I do not want that to be my first line of defense. But my yard is so big. I care for it by myself and so I have a hard time getting ahead of the weeds and care.
The day lilies are beginning to bloom. It will be a good year. There are lots of buds. I included pictures of the two types in my yard. The solid yellow ones are Stella de Oro. They are small compact plants. I think if I moved them to a sunnier area, they would bloom more.
The other kind is called Orange Daylily. It is a variety that grows well in the wild. It spreads and can take over. It is considered old and dated and not sold in nurseries anymore. People favor the hybrids now. I received these plants from my mother-in-law's yard years ago. The flowers are brilliant and can be 3-4 feet tall. I like the flower but I need to keep the plants at bay. If anyone is in the area, I would be happy to give you some of this ordinary but beautiful Daylily.
