Daylily Seed Harvest

daylily seeds

This week I was excited to discover that the day lily pods from my purchased daylilies are splitting open and the seeds are ready to harvest. The plants I bought this year had larger flowers, bigger pods and much larger seeds than Little Business Red and Red Ribs. I’m not sure what two of the varieties were because they did not look like what I ordered. One daylily was Tuscawilla Snowdrift which did not set any seeds. The two daylily plants with seed pods ready to harvest right now are a big red one and a yellow one as seen in the pictures. I am still waiting for two other daylilies out of the five varieties I bought this year to bloom so I will update those later.

This morning: Beautiful Luffa gourd vine, banana tree, caladium and illustris elephant ear update.

Beautiful Caladiums,Illustris elephant ears and Zinnia

After all the rain we got from the storm it looks like the elephant ears are going crazy growing in nice and thick making quite a statement. I am surprised to see a few early blooming daylilies Red Stripe seedlings still hanging around. The Burpee Cut and Come Again zinnias are going to be a favorite of mine because I want to save seeds from these to grow next year.
