Well, there weren’t quite as many flowers in bloom at Tangled Branches North as I had hoped. And most of those were already on yesterday’s list for Tangled Branches South. But I do have a few more daylilies north than south, so how about if we watch the daylilies open?
This was the first daylily I ever planted (over 20 years ago). The variety is ‘Medallion’. The other daylily varieties at Tangled Branches North are unknown to me. I have “the big yellow one”, “the dark red one”, “the one that looks like Stella d’Oro”, and “the one that is probably ‘Siloam Baby Talk’. I have two more whose name I do know (‘Apricot Petticoats’, ‘Squash Tempura’) that I moved to Tangled Branches South this spring. They haven’t bloomed yet.
For completeness, here’s the list of plants in bloom at Tangled Branches North which aren’t duplicated at Tangled Branches South:
- Bottlebrush Buckeye (Aesculus parviflora)
- Shasta daisy
- Asclepias tuberosa
- Santolina (the green leaved one with pale yellow flowers)
- Coreopsis verticillata ‘Moonbeam’
- various groundcover-type Sedums
- Passiflora incarnata
More accurately, Passiflora incarnata was blooming until I pulled out every shoot I could find. Some plants should come with warning labels, and this is the year I finally got fed up with its wandering ways. The shoots are coming up everywhere, some a good 10 feet from where it was originally planted. When I planted it next to our neighbors’ fence, those neighbors were hardly ever outdoors and did basically no outdoor maintenance on the property (not even mowing the lawn). Now we have different neighbors who are the exact opposite – anything that can be mowed, sheared or edged is mowed, sheared or edged always. So I’m sure they’re unhappy at finding tropical-looking vines sprouting everywhere, but on the other hand, those vines are mowed off immediately. On our side of the fence, it’s a different story…
