Unfortunately, I have not found any good sources for it locally. Last June, I found one (Day Lily 'Stella') for sale at HomeDepot and immediately bought it. It only lasted about three weeks, and disappeared completely after finishing blooming. I think it might not be the right foliage type for South Florida. There are three foliage types for Day Lily: Dormant, semi-evergreen, evergreen. For south regions, Evergreen is the one that will thrive.
A couple of weeks ago, I saw two types of Day Lilies for sale at Lowes. I asked the store staff and was told that they are "Evergreen". Imagine how excited I was when I brought these two home!
They were labeled as Daylily
My mission to search for right Daylilies shall continue...
On the bright side, my garden has been happily singing the spring song. It is May already, and I found I have missed posting some beautiful April bloomings. Here are some of them.
First Matchstick bromeliad bloomed... Looks so beautiful in the early morning sun.
Other Neoregelia Bromeliads in the garden are also blooming. Their flowers are hidden in the center of the leaves. The blooming usually means it is the time for the mother plant to produce the babies, or pups. Yay!
April is the month for Jasmine and Gardenia. The fragrance made the garden walk even more pleasant.

I also like to bring them indoor to enjoy more...
Needle flowers or Augusta rivalis has set out so many buds, and looks like May will be their peak time.
Neomarica Caerulea 'Regina' has been flowering on and off since early March.

Last year's Caladium bulbs have been emerging from the ground one by one, adding different colors into the shady corner.
What May will bring for the garden?
