I have tons of DAYLILIES planted all over the Island; when I first decided to plant down there, my original thought was to breed Daylilies and that's why I bought so many. Later, I reconsidered against it. Early Daylilies start the end of June but progress in quantity of the number of plants in flower to their zenith about the second and third weeks of July. After that they gradually deminish in the number still in bloom but many stay in bloom most of the rest of the season. Daylilies begin to open the end of June and continue to progress to a cresendo the second and third weeks of July. Though the Island is always in foliage and flower, these two weeks are the best. Orginially I had intended to breed Daylilies, that's why I have so many. But what a gorgeous display they present!
The canopy of the Flowering Gazebo in covered with the TRUMPET VINES, both a huge red one and a smaller yellow. There are also so many other overall plants in bloom. The Flowering Gazebo, of course, still steals the show, however. CLIMBING ROSES intertwined with ROSES still make the posts extra showy with the red and the yellow HONEYSUCKLES in full bloom, calling all hummingbirds in the area. Red and yellow TRUMPET VINES also start showing off as they try to compete for your attention. Sporadically the purple WISTERIA sends out occasional flowers. Sitting under them is like sitting under a large shade tree, so much cooler and out of the sun.
Flowerbeds are filled with blossoming DAISIES, DAYLILIES, ROSES, CLEMATIS, GERANIUM, BALLOON FLOWERS, VERONICA and DELPHINIUM spikes and CONTINUAL SUMMER-LONG BLOOMING ANNUALS such as PETUNIAS and SALVIA.
