Daylilies are a good beginner perennial, but the choices in bloom color, size, and type can easily overwhelm.  Annette Shrader tours the home gardens of a daylily hobbyist and finds some dazzlers.  Plus, we’ll put culinary herbs to good use in the kitchen. A visit to Morning Glory Orchard clues us into how to pick good peaches off the shelf. Sally Reynolds tours a perennial garden that is the pride and joy of the homeowners.

Annette’s segment highlighted the following daylily varieties: Little Wine, Midnight in Paris, The Heavens Declare, Midnight Blue Eyes, Midnight Treasure, Pink Peppermint, Twinkle and Twist, Orange Sky, and Sisyphus.
