Is it just me or are the daylilies particularly stunning this year?

I apparently have a thing for them because I seem to have them tucked into every flower bed. There have been a lot of cool-looking cultivars produced by the plant breeders in the last few years. Even though the yellow or orange daylilies are good standbys, I'm a sucker for anything unusual.

Many of my daylilies have come from The Friends of Manito's annual plant sales because they do a good job of selecting the latest and greatest varieties.

In the photos above, the first one is 'Strutters Ball' and the second is 'My Sweet Rose.'
