What I like most about Daylilies is their tropical flair. Daylilies have a trumpet-like shape and grow on leafless tall stems. They may look delicate however they are known for growing easily and quickly spread. A tip for planting; these flowers like alkaline soil.

Alstroemeria

With three cheerful and colourful blooms, the Alstroemeria has become a florist favourite. Unlike other flowers, the Alstroemeria has 6 petals. When growing these flowers be sure to plant in an area in your garden with little wind or movement because the stems are tall and could collapse.

This exquisite flower was chosen for its extraordinary appearance. Also known as a Torch Lily due to its fiery complexion.  Unlike fire, these flowers need water so be sure to water them regularly in hot and dry periods.

California poppy

Great flowers to plant in dry and grassy areas. This flower loves the heat and when it rains or is overcast it closes its bloom. Don’t remove them thinking they have died because they are just waiting for the sun!

Happy Planting!
