DAYLILIES AND ROSES

FOTD – June 26 – DAYLILIES AND ROSES

I know this sounds weird, but I think I managed to pull up the last of the bittersweet in the garden. Owen and I have been uprooting it. Every time we pass the garden, we look. If we see the plant, we grab it and pull it out, root and all. Yesterday, I pulled out two big vines with long rooots. After that, I couldn’t find any more. I’m sure it’ll show up again, but for now, it’s gone.

The garden is still a mess and full of plants I don’t recognize. They aren’t flowers, but they aren’t bindweed either. They have straight stems and flat leaves. I have no idea what it is or where it came from, but at least it isn’t trying to consume other plants.

Meanwhile, we are growing a lot of daylilies and the roses are growing. There are a lot of buds, so I think we are going to have a lot of roses. But the garden is a mess, so taking pictures of the flowers is interesting. Very. Interesting.

These pictures were all taken yesterday afternoon. If anyone recognizes that tall, dark green plant with the wide flat leaves, can you tell me what it is?

  1. you will have to wait until they make any flowers, I’m afraid!
    And thanks to you I got to know Bittersweet – it’s not something one wants in their garden. And I’ve read about How to get rid of it – good luck, one can only say! We had, in France, our huge terrace ripped open by the acacia roots tunnelling their way from the far away bank – they are HELL to have over the ground and IN the ground. They grow like mad, have lethal thorns, and in springtime, their flowers render the ground slippery like soaped up…. I’m so glad to be rid of THAT problem.

    • As long as we focus on the flowers and discount the weeds, it IS lovely. We get a month of lovely. After that, it’s just weeds. But the month is worth it and the combination of daylilies and roses always looks perfect.

    • I love sharing our one good month. This year is definitely messier than usual, but that combination of roses and daylilies is gorgeous. And for some reason, THIS year we have a slew of spiderwort, so in with the orange and red, we also have that lovely deep blue — and of course, the green. Just missed the columbine. If it would last just a couple of more weeks, that would be perfect.
