Childhood memories on a small farm in Riverbank, California are where it all started for me. There was an old pine tree that soared up into the sky. Walking home from school, I always found myself in its branches overlooking the beautiful land scape. I remember our huge vegetable garden, fruit orchard, chickens and cows.

My dad, Larry Peterson, being a plant physiologist had great interest in horticulture. He tried to teach his children all the scientific names of flowers and plants while we backpacked the high Sierra Mountains. I must admit that I can't remember any of those long names. However I

find myself doing the same thing with my own kids. Try to say, 'metasequoia glyptostroboides' three times!




A family decision was made to start building a greenhouse on the California property. I remember walking around killing all the grass to make room for the greenhouse. My dad bought a greenhouse from a company that went out of business and left us without the money or greenhouse! My dad worked for Shell Development Company in the plant research lab when they sold to DuPont back east. We moved to Delaware my senior year which ended my early start in the nursery business.

However, that dream has never left me as I sometimes walk home picking seeds and clippings off of the neighbors’ plants. I did manage to grow some things in my bedroom under make shift lighting. The humidity was suffocating in Delaware so I moved away as soon as possible and moved to Utah where I have been ever since.

For years I lived and continued to expand my knowledge about landscaping and plant habit. We owned and operated a small bed and breakfast call 'My Little Cottage'. I even went as far as to bring in dirt to cover up three parking spaces for a vegetable garden located two blocks from the downtown city center of Salt Lake City, Utah.

We sold our property and moved to raise our three children and a gold fish. My goal was to create a space that would be different and unique. I started buying rare plants and unique flowers all over the country. I came across a daylily at my local hardware store and said "Wow, that's gorgeous!" I did not buy it because I thought it was too expensive at $20.00. Looking back, I have to laugh because the last daylily I bought cost me $300.00. Without any effort, I quickly found a new world of intrigue and beauty. Daylilies seem to be attached to my soul and the friends I have meet have been just as beautiful as the flowers I now grow.

I jumped head first into this addiction and purchased 100 daylilies and 200 seeds in the fall of 2008. I was able to divide fans and made enough money for a single fan of Bass Gibson. I added another 100 cultivars last spring and have started 300 seedlings to the mix. The excitement to see the outcome this year can only be shared by the daylily community and my family, especially my dad. As one who enjoys the outdoors, watching things grow completes who I am. I enjoy having projects to work on but daylilies have found a home in my heart.

My wife, Allison, has always understood and has supported me in everything I do. I love her dearly. I am so proud of her too. Allison has finished a children’s book, “I Want a New Mommy”. It’s about her real experiences with our children. Our three kids, Madison, Kate and Jared, are quick to help with the weed pulling and planting. But, for some reason I always seem to get the evil eye from Allison when I start bringing dirt into the kitchen. I wonder if that will ever change. My kids were well-trained around the daylilies until the day I showed them they were edible. Maybe I will have perfect kids next year.

I very much enjoy talking to others about their love and passion for daylilies. Searching the internet, I found myself f rustrated as a graphic designer and web developer with the limited resources that were available online to easily discuss and share photos of daylilies all in one place. I also wanted to give back somehow to all those people that shared daylilies and words of encouragement with me during my initial jump into the daylily world. I just wanted to do more. That is how and why Mydaylilies.com was born.

The unique nature of MyDaylilies.com is exciting to me and I hope to you too. Lifelong daylily friendships can be made. Hybridizers can post pictures of their seedlings that can be rated by their peers. This instant feedback is invaluable and I hope the knowledge and experience of 600+ members will make this site one of the best resources on the internet.Thumb of 2010-08-30/CaryPeterson/3632cd

I am glad you clarified that you are a male! I had heard you were a female! *Blush*

I feel the same way about Cubits as you do about mydaylilies. Except that I like that this cubit does not have the "friending" Facebook type thing... like I said I have not been to mydaylilies very many times, so don't take my comments to much to heart. At a couple years past fifty, I felt like the site is for people younger than I am. And, I was uncomfortable with having to sign in with my real name. I am not sure I want my real name out there for all to find who happen to stumble upon a web site. I discussed this with JP several times, and he said that you all really wanted people to use real names. So I never joined. I won't be buying, I won't be selling, so I don't see the point of anyone needing to know, just surfing the web, who I am.

Cubits has so much more to offer than GardenWeb, Dave's Garden, or even Tinkers. I like to think of Cubits as the AHS robin, with a more open mind, and with photos. And, I have just tapped in to what Dave has available here for Cubit owners. He's still building the site. There is a lot more to come here for us to add to our Cubits down the road... there is more available now that I am not using yet.

I didn't realize you were so new into daylilies! It is a wonderful hobby. I think it has been about 30 years now, that I have been growing them.... about 24 or 25 "seriously"....

Cary, love the large rocks in your garden shot. Aren't large rocks the greatest! They really add texture and interest to a garden. I have lots of rocks, I guess I like them, some of them I would take with me if ever I moved... could leave the furniture LOL

Cary I am so glad you found your way here from DG. After I saw your seedlings there I knew you had arrived. I am in the process of growing seedlings and purchased about 100 plants so far in my new venture that started in 07. I so wish you good luck as it is truly a love from the heart that makes the difference.

Ya that is me... Male with wife and kids. I was named after Cary Grant. No sports or TV for me I have too many projects going at one time. I do watch a few movies but that is about it.

My love of the people at DG created the need for more. More Forum, More Chat, and free free free. I believe in people and so far they have not let me down. I also realized that especially here in Utah we are missing the younger generation. I hoped that mydaylilies.com will bridge that gap again for them to latch on to something main stream. With Cubits it also bridges that gap for more and free. And enables you to run to roses or bird watching all on the same website. How cool is that?

The real name thing is only for those that wish to be known in daylilies or to become a hybridizer. JP took it a little far but we where very new and still finding our way. Since then JP has stepped down from participating with the website and has removed himself from MyDaylilies.

If you wish to be Julia or Jewels or DaylilyLover I am ok with that. You can go to your profile and change your name anytime you wish. It is a very nice feature to be called anything you want. It makes no difference to me. Even one of the editors on http://www.daylilies.com is called by an aliases, "Beep! Beep!" or one of the featured members name is, "LaLaLand" Ann is still known as Farmerbell and April is TroubleX2. Which I see she still loves to win prizes!

Rocks have a purpose in lanscape design. So does daylilies and peonies too. Which reminds me I have a wholesale shipment coming in and have a few extra ioth "Border Charm" peonies for sale for $15 Regular $42 plus shipping. Shipping within the next 10 days. It is my CO-OP for today. I also can do CO-OP Garden Markers once a year if you want to start that too.
