Daylilies paint Schoepfle Garden with color

The arrival of daylily blooms signals the real start of summer at Schoepfle Garden.  The majority of the daylilies are in the two rows along the kousa dogwoods at the southern end of the main path.  There are 48 varieties that form the walls of this walkway, down from more than 60 that Otto had originally planted but removed ones too similar to others to keep the display fresh.  The reds, yellows and oranges go right along the summer sun warmth.  Also in the garden in bloom are perennials like astilbe, verbascum, hosta and of course the roses remain a highlight of your walk.
