I live about an hour from Paul Owen's Slightly Different Nursery so I get to visit there often. He has a polymerous daylily out this year called MY FRIEND JIM that is really outstanding. Wish I had a photo to send but I lost some of my photos in a computer crash and that was one that I lost. It was polyed far more than what Paul registered it as and is a big, bright orange with a red eyezone and it's a tet. Most registered polys so far are diploids.

Paul's place is just beautiful. It's an old horse farm with a spectacular view of the mountains. He gets quite a lot of "winter" at that high elevation so his daylilies are rust free and hardy. Paul spoke at our club yesterday. If your club ever needs a speaker, I would highly recommend Paul. He gives a very funny and informative talk. And his hybridizing program is coming along by leaps and bounds. He's a hybridizer "on the way up". You can catch his talk at the AHS Region 2 midwinter meeting in Cincinnati on Feb 26 if you are going. It's a wonderful way to beat the winter blues!

It starts on Friday afternoon and ends at noon on Sunday. I really enjoy all the speakers...here's the line up: http://www.daylilies.org/AHSconv.html#R2Sym
Plus you have plenty of time to talk to friends and other hybridizers between speakers and during the dinners. You come home energized and READY for the season that is about to begin!!

Just saw Paul's presentation at the Region 2 Winter Meeting (Symposium)....he was definitely the highlight of the whole weekend as he not only gave a presentation of his own program and garden, but he helped out with his tireless energy during the auctions....THANKS Paul!!!
