Summer is a wonderful time to collect new perennials for the garden landscape. One of my favorites and perhaps most popular is Hemerocallis or other wise known as the daylily. In my Ohio garden I have over a dozen different daylily varieties we enjoy each year. In this post I share my Hemerocallis fulva ‘kwanso’ which is a double orange daylily. Find video, images and a few fun facts below.
