I removed the rust red daylilies growing on the northside berm because our previous attempts at weeding out the grass proved unsuccessful. Sigh. Besides the birch has grown so big that they didn't get enough sun anymore.
Here's how they looked in 2008
In summer 2011, daylilies didn't get enough sun to do well.
I'm not posting a pic of how it looks now -- it's just a bit disheartening. Not sure what I will plant there once we've eradicated the grass.

Look into Clivia...they love the shade, but not a lot of water...they come in yellow and a gorgeous orangered shade. Also maybe the Asiatic lily or Peruvian lily. And the Calla lilies do well too and like moisture.
