Daylilies Sweet Almond Mint, Marina Del Rey, Mayans' Dawn, Castle Rock

---Sweet Almond Mint---
Pierce-G., reg. 2012 (Orange Cherry Jubilee x Born 
to Be Wild) E EV RE 6.5 x 46 inches, fragrant
40 buds, 7 branches
 easily pod pollen fertile
fast to increase here

Peak season is on the down-hill side now, and
the plants being crossed are making a messy
appearance in the garden with all the tags and
spent blooms. 

After rebloom, the more arduous task begins 
of cleaning out the seedling beds to prepare 
the space for the 2015 seedlings.

The harsh winter adversely affected many 
of the plants. They are top budded, or
 blooming low in the foliage. The size and
color of blooms is less appealing on many of 
the established plants that have done well for
years, so of course, less to photograph.  
However, if we receive sufficient rain, 
rebloom may extend the season. 
Still, there are oodles of spent blooms to
remove each day, just not photo worthy.
