I always look forward to this time of year. It’s when the daylilies and roses bloom. Somehow, the daylilies have managed to bloom despite the invasion of Bittersweet, an Asian climber that has gone out of control.
Reports say it can grow as much as 60 feet in a year. Personally, I think that’s an underestimate. I think it grows any number of feet every day and if it got into my house, I’m pretty sure it would wrap itself around me and bind me to the bed between midnight and dawn.
Cutting it down doesn’t seem to have much of an effect on its growth. Nonetheless, it’s still blooming and all I can do is admire its enthusiasm.
