Hello Gardeners, I’m Amanda McNulty with Clemson Extension and Making It Grow. Secluded Gardens on Serenity Lane in Lexington, is an official display garden or the American Hemerocallis Society. Team Making It Grow visited homeowner Gail Buff there recently and boy, oh, boy – it was hard to stay serene in the midst of such beauty and vivid color. Hundreds and hundreds of day lilies in a vast array of flower forms and colors were in full bloom. Gail told us the history of the property, once part of her grandparent’s farm, and she has incorporated all sorts of found treasures that relate to her Wingard family past. Shovel heads have become faces, tree stumps serve as focal points and elevate containers filled with other blooming plants, and old equipment link this modern garden to its agricultural roots. When Gail divides her daylilies she takes the extras to her sister Delores Wingard Steinhauser at Wingard’s Nursery and also shares them with Columbia Green.
