Daylilies are a perennial that’s a sturdy one for beginning gardeners.  However, 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 clip some culinary herbs and put them to good use in the kitchen.  A visit to Morning Glory Orchard provides insight in selecting fresh peaches from the bin. 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.
