How could I forget to point out that daylilies, a classic Midwestern summer stalwart, have held up well under this summer's tough growing conditions. Mine performed just about as usual and I saw them blooming in gardens all over the area. Just in time for (I hope!) cooler fall weather comes a daylily sale from the fabulous Klehm's Song Sparrow Farm and Nursery. Check out their large selection — and enjoy 15% off on all daylilies.
Be sure to sign up for e-mail updates about sales and new introductions — which is how I heard about this sale. Klehm plants are not cheap but they are worth every penny. And they are a third-generation daylily and peony breeder so they really know their plants!
