And you love the Australian day lilies?

are especially distinguished From a variety of ornamental plants perennial plants - day lilies. In the nature there are mass of the most various species of these fine plants, but and beautiful the Australian day lilies are the most considerable.

When I saw them the first time, they subdued me once and for all.... High tsvetonosa, very large flowers with the dense invoice, a floor - corrugated, corrugated and some semi-terry and terry, in the majority monophonic and in rare instances of two or three-colored, with soft shading from the center to edge of petals.

One and biannual bushes of day lilies have few tsvetonos and look not quite presentably, but when the bush reaches 3 - x and more years, this show strongly impresses. The adult bush has up to 15 - 20 strong tsvetonos and on each of them keeps from 7 - 8 and to 15 buds. Every morning such bush is covered in the large, bright flowers, forming huge a miracle - a bouquet. The Australian day lilies are very unpretentious, winter-hardy, winters Situated near Moscow transfer perfectly and very well breed. In due time, about 20 years ago, when I got these day lilies from one collector - very much worried that these fine plants will die in my garden, but I in vain worried - during all the time at me any bush of day lilies did not die. By quantity of grades I am not in the lead, and on a color - quite colourful palette: from it is white - cream and to darkly - darkly claret. Separate grades of the Australian day lilies have diameter of flowers to 25 cm

the Dutch day lilies do not have Anything similar. The Dutch day lilies have bright multi-color colors, but they undersized, tsvetonosa at them so low that sometimes it is necessary to approach closely a bush to make out beauty and a color of this or that grade. Tsvetonosa of the Australian day lilies have height of a tsvetonos to 1,5 m. but not less than 70 - 80 cm, and huge flowers are visible from far away, attracting our look.

It is possible to admire these wonderful plants infinitely, they attract and bewitch us, without leaving any doubts in our consciousness that these flowers possess hypnotic action on the person. Day lilies perfectly postpone change from spring to fall, but as a rule put them in the early spring as soon as the earth thaws on depth of 50 - 70 cm and are closer to fall - in the second half of August. Also in the second half of Augustus strongly expanded bushes divide into allotments and transplant at distance from each other not less, as on 60 - 70 cm from each other, providing thereby sufficient nutrition for a plant and good illumination of all bush.

In the shaded places it is not desirable to put day lilies as the color of a flower will be slightly more pale, than this grade is actually. Landing of a day lily surely has to be such that all root system would be covered with the earth and the top part of a rhizome - (from where kidneys appear) slightly - slightly too has to be covered with soil. Also when landing it is necessary to prepare a hole, considering length and width of a rhizome and, respectively, that from below and on each side a root there were stocks on 10 - 15 cm. It is necessary to fill a hole gradually, without allowing density of roots of a plant, and on the contrary, distributing all parts of a rhizome on a hole circle are wider. It will give good nutrition to a plant and its good development. While we did not fill up completely a hole, it is necessary - to water two times three a plant before full absorption of moisture, and from above - without watering, to powder a rhizome with the friable nutritious earth and to strew granules of ôKemirô a little.

Here such simple operations of landing and change of day lilies will yield to you positive results and you will admire in the garden these fine flowers almost all summer - from June to September. For winter of a plant not to cover and not to cut off, and to clean all died-off leaves in the spring and to carry them in a compost heap or to burn.
