Daylily Haiku Thursday | Summer Sundial

Summer seems long gone.
Fall is already fleeting.
Still.  I'm holding on.

This is H. 'Summer Sundial' by Don Jerabek.  It is so perfect in its form and clear color.  I love the very green overcast that shows on this one.  Very simple and very beautiful...proves to me that a bloom does not need all the latest trends splashed all over it to make a statement.  There is no chicken fat, triple-colored edge, no multi-ringed pattern, no complex carving.  Just smooth texture, soft pie-crust edges and a high bud count are enough to make it a stand out.  Don doesn't hybridize daylilies anymore, but I sure wish he did.  He has an eye for the simple, but still somehow perfectly unique. 

Here are a few more unadorned beauties, which have an understated beauty.  It's true a daylily does not have to be gaudy all the time to get noticed!

H. 'Quiet Earth', H. 'Sarcastic Intentions', and H. 'Pink Corduroy'
