Saturday, July 12th was Eastbrook Gardens annual Open Garden. I never miss it, and as always it was truly spectacular. Despite the recent and plentiful rainfall, Carol and Roger had their fifteen gardens meticulously manicured. Daylilies of every size, shape and color were blooming. A veritable rainbow! Just walking around and appreciating the beauty that surrounds you takes you to another place - a calming...relaxing...grateful that you are alive kind-of-place.
Eastbrook Gardens has 800+ named daylily cultivars and hundreds of seedlings that Roger has hybridized. He is test growing many of his seedlings to make sure they continue to have favorable attributes before he registers them with the American Hemerocallis Society.
While strolling through the garden, you may see a particular daylily that you must have. Carol and Roger also sell some of their daylilies to support the garden. If you'd like to purchase a plant, contact them through their Eastbrook Gardens Facebook page. Hundreds of their daylilies are pictured individually on Facebook. You can also arrange a garden visit by appointment. Believe me, it's worth the trip!
