Did you know you can eat daylilies (Hemerocallis fulva) from the flower to the roots? I tried an orange one in a salad it not only was pretty on the plate but tasty too. I'm going to give them a try in stir fry. Here's more info
I know I was starting this Plant Camp with my plants on the homestead but I just got to share some pic's from our botanical gardens that we live close by. I took pic's last week . They did have a plant sale so I got some plants and hope next season I will have lots of daylilies to show you.
The first group is taken at Powell Gardens and I'm sorry I don't have names for them , so if you know some of them or have these jump right in and tell us : ). Next time I visit I'll take a notebook with me and get those names.
Pictures are taken with a cheapo digi, so even tho pretty nice it still doesn't do the flower justice.
Now this group are the ones I'm growing and I can't wait tell they start to expand.

This is a Lily growing over at our old homestead, plan to get it started over in my new lily gardens
I do have these added and won't see a flower until next year I hope : )
Ruby Throat - I bought this one blooming
This is just a drop in the bucket to many beautiful Daylilies. A flower that last one day, so glad they grow many in groups and you have a nice showing for the early summer.
If you have some Daylily pictures on your blog pages please leave a link so we can go over and go Daylily crazy : )
Thanks for dropping by at the Plant Camp. Next week will be something strange growing in the garden this time of year. I'll give you a hint "Christmas In July" can guess what plant will be featured at the camp next week?
Have a great week
