Yellow Daylilly

Plant Picks: Daylillies
Hemerocallis ‘Happy Returns’ is a light yellow daylily with abundant reblooming flowers and compact size (18” inches tall) which makes it good for containers, slopes and borders. Often called the perfect perennial because of its showy flowers, drought tolerance and low maintenance. Blooming from early to late summer, this clump forming lily thrives in full sun to part shade and performs well in a wide range of soils. As a plus daylilies attract butterflies and hummingbirds.

Summer Pruning
Now that the spring flowering trees and shrubs are coming to an end, it is the perfect time to prune. By pruning these shrubs soon after bloom, you will not be disturbing the buds for next season. When plants stop pushing new growth and that new growth has time to harden off, this would be the time to prune your landscape plants. By pruning at this time plants tend to hold their shape and neat appearance until the following year. Generally the time for pruning in our area is late June through July. If you would like to have your plantings pruned, call Leydon Landscaping Inc. to be scheduled.

Outdoor Lighting
With parties, graduations, and the Fourth of July, summer is a great time to entertain. Using low voltage outdoor lighting allows you to extend your outdoor festivities later into the evening. Whether you want to up light a specimen tree, the front of your house or light up a walkway with path lights, Let Leydon Landscaping help you choose and install the perfect lighting system.

Now You’re Ticking Me Off!
Now that we are in the heart of tick season, officials are warning people to be aware of tick bites. The warm winter has brought out an unwanted visitor, the black legged tick, what is also known as the deer tick. Deer ticks are known to transmit Lyme disease. It might be difficult to spot, but if bitten, officials advise to take precautions. Pennsylvania is expected to lead the nation in the number of cases of Lyme disease in 2017. There are a few tell tale signs of the tick bite. An oval red rash that will show up on whatever part of the body the tick bites. The cure ratio for each stage of Lyme disease is very high, but if left untreated this disease can cause fever and chills along with muscle and joint aches. Officials advise wearing long clothing and using insect repellants such as deet to protect yourself.
