A Summer of Fragrant Yellow Daylilies

Hemerocallis ‘Hyperion’ at sunrise

Fragrant Yellow Daylily Hyperion

Emily Dickinson writes-

Nature rarer uses yellow

Than any other hue;

Saves she all that for sunsets, –

Prodigal of blue,

Spending scarlet like a woman,

Yellow she affords

Only scantly and selectly,

Like a lover’s words.
