Daylilies in the ground

.... and I timed it perfectly just before a nice, gentle rain. I got a photo before I planted to show the SIZE of these things. When I've bought daylilies before, one fan meant one plant. With Funderburk's it meant a huge clump!

Aren't they gorgeous just sitting there? Kathi from Funderburk's recommended that I cut them back to about 8 inches high after planting because being dug would stress them and that would let their growth go toward blooming. I'm sure with so many big clumps I'll have enough to share from these varities before long. Anyone want to line up now? :)

The varities I just put out are: 2 Yazoo Frances Heart, 6 Pandora's Box (on sale for just $1 each, and a steal!) 2 Strawberry Candy (the biggest clumps -- one with 5 plants in it!!), 3 Fairy Tale Pink, 3 Dewey Roquemore (also gigantic clumps I ended up splitting!), and 2 Pardon Me. I promise photos as soon as they bloom.
