A nearly native plant habitat garden located in northeast Georgia in eco-region 231 (Southeast Mixed Forest Province) zone 7b on 10 acres of meadow and forest habitat. I’m Karin, gardener, photographer and writer. I hope you enjoy a little taste of Georgia and will come back and visit often. xo!
This beauty, Stella d'Oro, meaning Star of Gold, is my favorite daylily.
I love the gold yellow blooms against the dark green leaves. It is a staple in my summer garden. And, yes it isn't officially summer yet but it sure has felt like it with temperatures climbing in the 90's this week.
Always a dependable re-bloomer. The trumpet shaped blooms last for one day but no worries because there is a neighboring bud ready to bloom the following day.
Some other great qualities are that it is deer resistant, drought tolerant, and gets very few pests. All reasons why it is commonly used in landscaping. It can pretty much thrive on neglect. A bonus in my book especially when it is too hot to garden.
Can you imagine?
When I walked out to my garden this morning I was greeting by the blooms of sunshine covered with raindrops from a light morning rain (Yeah!). What a great way to start the day!
