This past week heralds the arrival of the daylilies. The Dallas Stars are a vigorous bunch of daylilies planted in the front bed that can endure periods of part shade. Our newest arrivals are nearly yellow with a hint of pink. The past few weeks have also seen the crape myrtles blooming full blast. Not to be outdone, our first Desperado Sage is covered in bright lavender pink blooms, that contrast well with the silvery gray foliage.
