I didn't know that daylilies came in such a range.
The top one is very showy with the ruffled yellow edge to the petals.

He is a Yellowtail Black Cockatoo Grabby.
He was just outside the window so I could grab a few pics before he saw me. They are here most of the time but not often I can get that close to them.

Knipifolia is resistant to 'chookie cultivation' and even the odd attempt to nest in it. The blue Salvia makes a tough,drought hardy ground cover or low shrub that does not seem to interest the chooks.

I have never seen a green/yellow knipifolia before Sue. Only the usual red/orange ones. Yours is just lovely! I wonder if it would make a decent substitute for agapanthus, which is invasive here and on the 'burn in hell' list.

Where did you find it, may I ask? I think I will try to get my hot little hands on one or two.

Dont know where Sue got hers , but the Diggers Club often had them for sale , i ordered mine online a few years back before i moved - i think the cultivar was called Percys Pride .

Levrette, they probably came from Diggers (or Tesslers) If you have no luck locally PM me and I'll divide some off mine in the Winter.
