Planting Serendipity

This beautiful fragrant day lily is 'Princton Silky'. It was described as a mid to late bloomer.  Most of our day lilies finished blooming weeks ago, but this is the first flower for this first year plant. It is fragrant, and gorgeous like its catalog photograph.

We planted it next to the 'Stardust'  chrysanthemums and are quite delighted with the color  combination. It's like going out somewhere special having your dress match your shoes. This rarely happens to us and I'm sure  it's serendipity or just plain luck. I wonder if there is even a small chance the this day lily, once established, will bloom late enough to be seen with the mums. Even if it never happen again, it certainly added a smile to the gardeners' faces this year!

Your Daylily is gorgeous, and just the right shade next to your "mums". You certainly have an eye for colour, they go beautifully together.
