Alstroemeria and Daylily

When we lived in Connecticut, my sister planted these yellow daylilies. This variety had much heavier and thicker blossoms than many other varieties. It has been many years and they continue to put on a spectacular display each July (this photo was taken in 2014). She has forgotten the variety, so I’ll just call them “Pat’s Pick”.

The other flower is a Alstroemeria  (Peruvian Lily) that I purchased from Mason Hollow Nursery . I was a bit nervous about it’s winter hardiness but it is progressing nicely this May and I expect some nice bloom from June to Frost.

I gave up on lilies after watching my Oriental Lilies being destroyed by lily beetles. The Alstroemeria is unaffected and doesn’t seem to have any pests.
