Pretty picture: Hemerocallis 'Miracle Maid'

I know there have been lots of daylily pictures already, and I don't intend to claim that these are particularly special. But I do like the color, and a pretty picture is a pretty picture, so better late than never, I guess.


I actually had no idea whatsoever that there were so many varieties of daylily out there: around here I see a lot of plain orange ones, and occasionally a plain yellow one, and that's it. Discovering the existence of red and black and two-toned and lavender, etc., has been eye-opening.

That looks a lot like my generic red daylily I got years ago at Lowe's. I still really like it, long after I got bored with the generic yellow ones and gave them away.
