What is this I'm saying? What place do Daylilies have in a haunted garden? Well, do names like Halloween Masquerade,
Or Ghost of Thunder Road entice you?
How about Pumpkin Blast,
or Happy Halloween?
I have delightfully discovered a whole flock (what do you call a whole BUNCH of daylilies, anyway? lol) of Halloween related daylilies. I was asking a friend of mine who lives in PA, if she has any Salem Witch daylilies,
and she replied, "No, but I have some Hocus Pocus!"
So that prompted our hunt. .so far we have found 44 different cultivars named for Halloween, pumpkins, witches, Pagans and more. (I'm going to keep looking!) There is one called "Swamp Creature",
and another "Creature of the Night".
I love the exotic look of Vampire Lestat!
Or how about a Bella Legosi in your garden?
I don't know who is naming these wonderful blooms, but I sure like the way that their minds think! I'm on a quest now. Some of these are rather pricey, but I plan on carving out a spot somewhere in my garden to plant some of these beauties. Add my cracked iron cauldron (the original leaky cauldron!) and maybe an amber Faerie Light or two. How delightful!
Wishing everyone a lovely, enchanting evening!
