Each day new varieties of Day Lilies bloom in the Jarvis House garden.
This is the Day Lily that has the brightest yellow, almost glows in the dark.

Road Side Lilies,
which are everywhere in the Jarvis Garden, and can't be beat for height and graceful stems. The look especially well behind the Hosta boarders. More Day Lilies to come. Make sure to visit the Day Lily Society of Long Island for information and events. They can provide more scientific details which I try to avoid. With so many plants at the Jarvis Garden, I leave the true names of varieties to the experts. I just plant them. Quite a few of these blooms came from their plant sale two years ago. The soil is suited to growing Day Lilies and they do well here.
