Was so glad to greet the postman yesterday when as he stood on our doorstep with a box from New Day Gardens. New Day Gardens is an independent garden provider specializing in daylilies and irises. We were looking for a pink daylily and I tweeted Debra at New Day Gardens (@NewDayGardens) and asked for a suggestion. She replied “Pardon Me” daylily would be an excellent choice, so I placed an order.
As a bonus, Debra also sent “Schnickel Frite” daylily. This was a welcome surprise indeed.
As is my normal process, I soaked the lilies overnight in Haven Brand Soil Conditioner, around here we call it “MooPoo” Tea. This process re-hydrates the plant and readies it for planting.
“Pardon Me” Two beautiful plants
“Schnickel Frite” ended up being quite a bonus with 6 new starts…
Debra was kind enough to send along photos of “Pardon Me”. We love the color of this lily.
Awesome Bloom of “Schnickel Frite”
I planted the pink lilies in among the rose shrubs of “Queen Elizabeth” grandiflora.
The white lilies were planted in the front border among tall bearded iris and sunny knockout roses. Can’t wait to see them in bloom.
If you are looking for that perfect daylily or iris, tweet @NewDayGardens and ask her for suggestions or to inquire about a specific item. She is very knowledgeable and friendly. Orders are accepted year round for seasonal shipment of bare root plants. If your now a tweeter, you can email Debra at info@NewDayGardens.com
