The hunt for evergreen daylilies

Guess who decided to surprise me and work on the dog run? That’s right, DH grabbed a rake and started prepping the run for the sod arriving this weekend. Pictures forthcoming.

Meanwhile, my hunt for a white evergreen daylily has expanded my ambitions of populating the flowerbeds with greenery. Most catalogs and online stores won’t ship until as early as March for my zone 8 gardens, so I still have time to plan my daylily purchases.
