What’s Blooming Today?

Hemerocallis ‘Grand Opera’ bloomed this morning.

I adore the clear red color of this flower. It’s not muddied at all by hints of blue. It’s a short plant, perhaps 24 inches tall, and sits in the front of my south-side “hot” border. It pairs well with my tiger lilies and gold yarrow.

I still have perhaps two dozen small pots of seedlings remaining from my winter sowing project that I keenly want to get into the garden. I hope I may have time this evening to sneak into the garden and get them planted.
