A Few Blooms in October

last month

I still have five daylilies blooming in October, but so far with night temps in the 40s and low 50s Grandma's Smile X Bubblegum Delicious hasn't been able to fully open.

Grandma's Smile X Dearest Valentine opens well even when temps are in the low 40s. The color is much darker in this cool weather.

White Ambrosia takes until late in the morning to open, but it does finally open well.

Blue Swallowtail is ending its run with 31 buds on a rebloom scape. That's probably the biggest surprise of the season.

Jewel of Tavares is a good cold morning opener. It had its last bloom today. Here's a picture from late September.
