Word and Image


They are native to Long Island. Say that it means that this flower grows in the environment and likes the summers hot and dry. With a minimum of care they still thrive when other plants wilt. And they are colorful, almost fluorescent. Singly or in bunches daylilies are always an easy subject. They are summer on Long Island to me.

  1. I lived on Long Island for 25 years but don’t remember this flower. Actually, I don’t remember much of anything during those years with trying to raise a family. But I’ve enjoyed what I’ve seen so far of your blog.

  2. We have these lilies in abundance here in SoCal. They certainly brighten up the landscape. I don’t remember these living in CT -our yard there was full of iris and peonies. We also had a ‘cigar tree’ in our back yard. It wasn’t until I was an adult that i knew the proper name – catalpa.
