Daylilies dazzle in summer heat

Daylilies can provide that bridge in color from the amazing displays of flowering trees, rhododendrons and spring bulbs and blooms to the colors of late summer perennials like coneflower, canna, hosta and hibiscus.  Very resilient and easy to care for, they fit in many areas to provide the burst of color to rival the fireworks displays this month.  Added benefit – many parts of the plants are edible and can provide a unique addition to your summer table.  Check out more than 48 varieties of daylilies at Schoepfle Garden this month., park open 8am-8pm daily.
