Some spring flowers, especially bulbs, slowly fade away as the heat of summer looms heavy and seems to drop like a blanket.
This common daylily is a different species than the typical hybridized daylilies sold at nurseries. They may be only available as a passalong plant.
Crinim Lily bulbs are huge and multiply often. They like the heat and can survive in full sun but appreciate some afternoon shade. These had to be moved out of a flower bed when fiber cable was installed. I was surprised that they bloomed this year.
Crinim Lilies are old timey Southern passalong bulbs. They can be found at abandoned houses where they have survived for many years without any care.
It’s a hardy perennial that grows 2 to 3 ft. tall and needs staking. I put a wire cage around them, which works well.
With the temperatures into the three digits, early morning is the only time to garden and to actually enjoy the garden. Hope you can find a time to enjoy being outside, wherever you live.
