Daylily Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis is one of my favorite pink daylilies. It displayed a spectacular wonky first bloom this season. Although far removed from it's usual regal appearance, this daylily flower was very impressive none the less. Hemerocallis blooms last only one day, so future blooms on this plant will most likely normalize to their usual appearance.

Daylilies and Iris

The daylilies and iris are in bloom, after a long season of anticipation. We got several cultivars of Iris from Red Lane Daylilies last year, and placed them in the middle of the daylily rows. The colors are spectacular, and set each other off. The daylilies, or hemerocallis, are wonderful shades of yellow, orange, and pink. The intense purple and blues of the iris beckons from afar.
Love the harbour in the background behind the flowers. The Merigomish Harbour provides a lot of moisture for the fields in summer, and an extremely harsh climate in winter, ensuring only the hardiest of daylilies for Alloa Farm:).
