No White Day Lily

Sorry, no white day lily this year. The plant I had my hopes on turned out to be a purple one. I searched beneath the fronds and found a plant that might be the white lily, but may just be an extension of one of the day lilies already blooming, a brilliant yellow one. The yellow and orange ones are tough: wide dark green fronds, sturdy stems and multiple buds. I’m always on the alert to make sure they don’t crowd out the more delicate ones of lavender and lavender mixed with other colors. It is hard work.
But now I have my daughter-in-law, Karen, to help me and we’ll rip out some of the yellow ones to save the lavender ones.
I wish you were here so I could give you the ones I rip out.
