The Technique

Once you are familiar with several blooming plant & shrub varieties, making your own flower arrangements can be fun & fulfilling. If you don’t have these garden staples growing in your green space, pick them up from local nurseries & plant them either in pots or in your yard as they can be used in a number of lovely ways.

The Profile 

Autumn Red Daylily

Autumn Red Daylilies are a perennial specimen that may be identified by their hot color. If planted in mass, they resemble bursts of firecrackers when open. The flowers bloom in the morning & last just one day however they are a reliable garden staple & offer beautiful color four to five weeks during growing season. Plant the rhizomes in partial or full sun & they look best when distributed throughout garden spaces by offering good balance. Pair them with Shasta Daisies & Lamb’s Ears which will allow them to take center stage. Autumn Red Daylilies look great in borders for their flower spikes pop up from the grassy leaves that will remain a bit after bloom time. Pluck them as they yellow & new green growth will emerge. Provide well drained soil for this excellent specimen that is low maintenance but produces high impact.

The Yard Arrangement

 Simple glass square or cylinder containers allow Autumn Red Daylilies to shine. Pair with other summer garden classics including Hosta & Autumn Fern for effortless arrangements that may be used when entertaining. Line the outer portion of the vase with Hosta for interesting appeal then nestle lily stems with open & closed blooms in the center to create compact clusters of color. Tuck the Autumn Fern fronds between the petals then place the containers on the center of buffet tables & kitchen islands. They make quite an impact when used as focal points in entryways.
