I think you can add me to this. I'm hoping my Grapettes made the winter. They're so adorable!

This is closest to their colour. They're really adorable. I planted them in a clump

They're on the left, this is in the middle of a large drought and they're just starting to die off. I'll get some pictures of them in full bloom this year. Pardon the ugliness of the bed, I'm still working on it and will be putting some coneflowers, russian sage and different types of sedums in there as I slowly collect them :) I'm still fighting a battle with switch grass as you may notice.. :oops:

Thought you might like it! Your welcome! I have one growing with Daring Deception and they look really good together.

FYI...there is a lot of discrepency about how tall this one gets. I thought only about 16-18" when I first bought it, but the flower scapes reach closer to 24" here once established. Also, it is a vigorous grower so may be good for a difficult spot.

I'm glad to hear that! I've allocated a fairly large spot for them and was planning on widening it. I hoped they were vigorous. They're pretty enough to earn their keep :lol:

More "No Name" Day LIlies for this pot and some with names.

The ones with people names are the people I got them from.
