Tuesday Garden Party - No Fail Perennials (and a garden UPDATE!)

This week's Garden Party is all about our favorite perennials. Living in San Diego, we can grow many things year-round. When we moved into our house, we had many different varieties of day lilies already planted.

Originally I kind of thought they were no better than weeds, and I hacked them way way back. Well, they grew back. Even bigger. So I hacked them back again.

But this time when they grew back, I decided to enjoy them. And the flowers were beautiful!

Right now they are ready to be cut back... but just wait for Spring!

And now for my update! Remember my poor sad peas and lettuce after the heat?  Apparently a month or so of "Seattle-like" weather agrees with them!

The carrots like it too!

Next week I'll share what we'll be doing for our fall and winter pots. In the meantime, check out An Oregon Cottage for her weekly Garden Party.

  1. Wow, you're going to get a fall harvest out of them thar plants yet. ;-)

    I like daylilies, too, but they always turn brown on me by August no matter how much I try to keep them watered. *sniff*
