Old-fashioned double daylilies grow rampant in my perennial bed. Twenty years ago, when I was laying out the gardens in the first house my husband and I bought, a cousin shared starter plants with me. She’d obtained hers years before from Aunt Adele, who got hers from Great-grandma Cruikshank’s garden. I thought it a good sign when I arrived at the farm we’d just bought and found several of these in bloom there. The flowers at the farm are, I think, a slightly lighter shade of orange.
