This week, I noticed that I can definitely smell some of these daylilies when I'm working or walking close to them. I'd read before that some daylilies are scented, but I don't know if I'd ever really noticed it before.
So far, I wouldn't say that I've found a daylily fragrance that I absolutely adore. It's not an exquisite perfume, like gardenia or honeysuckle, but it's not unpleasant, either. I'd say it's probably an acquired taste-- like marigolds or the smell of tomato plants. A very "plant-y", herbal-floral scent.

Every so often, a daylily bloom has more than the typical three petals (plus three sepals). I've seen at least a few with four petals, before, but this was the first time I've noticed one with five. It also had two pistils (one is usual) and more stamens than a normal daylily flower (most have six).
The daylily seedlings are doing well, on the whole. :o)
This has been your regularly scheduled weekly quota of daylily photos. ;o)
