My first love is garden designs - love to create new gardens! My second love is collecting and hybridizing daylilies. With over 800 cultivars, a dozen plus intros, and several cottage gardens, the one acre garden is chockablock full! My third love is sharing the gardens with other gardeners.

The gardens are open on Memorial Day Weekend and the last two weekends in July or by appt. Lots of unusual perennials and daylilies for sale at those times. No rust ever seen here.

Facebook pages under Distinctive Garden Designs.

I look forward to sharing more here as we grow. Thanks Jules!

I have been to BB's garden - it is one of the most beautiful I have seen anywhere. She has such an eye for putting plants together. There was a treat for the eye everywhere I looked. We went on a trip around town, and WOW, does she do some nice design work!!!

Wish I lived closer so I could visit again!

That is Ta-Dah!

The name suggests how I felt when I first saw this daylily!

Ned Roberts liked it and confirmed that it was out of SKINWALKER because the pic he saw really showed the white on the back which was a trait of SW.

Unfortunately SW is not hardy here. We tried twice for that and DESERT ICICLE.

However I do have more than one seedling out of SW, when crossed with dormants.

I do not mulch nor baby any of my daylilies.

TA-DAH has a sib being released this summer. AHA!

They are yin yangs

TA-DAH being more masculine and stately

AHA being curly, more feminine with a greener throat.

I'll try to find a pic of AHA to post.

Thank you Jules! I wish you lived close too. So much has changed since you were here.

BTW, can you share with us what that wonderful handcream was that you gave me?

It was probably Camille Beckman - can you believe it was about 10 years ago that I was there?
Anyway, I either use CB, or Burt's Bees - and I don't think I was using Burt's then.
CB comes in the most wonderful fragrances. I love Gardenia, and Oriental Spice. My Mom uses Camille, which is rose scented. I get it in the big 32 oz. refill size, and use it as an all over body cream.

Thanks bb, that is a lovely one. Skinwalker didn't make it the first winter I had it here so I decided to try it again. So far now I have had it for 2 years. The key I was told is to put bricks around it so that it won't heave. I tried that and it has worked for me.

My first real website just went up yesterday!

New intros/registrations along with previous. More to come this summer when those lined out bloom and strut their stuff.

http://www.distinctivegardendesigns.com/hardy_hybrid_daylili...

And something unique. Powerpoint Presentations and photo CD's. I think that this is the first time someone who lectures has offered their programs minus the speaker! What a deal!!! On all aspects of gardening. Take a peak....

Now that you are back (well really before you were on Cubits so new here at ATP) please stick around. Lots of fun here at our daylily forum.
You left off the "s" in the last link so it didn't work. Here it is with the "s" so it does work.

Bobbie, so glad you were able to sign in. I think I will see what Dave can do about getting you in with your old name, since the threads come up with that name in them.

Love your intros. Especially IT FIGURES and ONE IS ENOUGH. Just lovely!

Yep, the smilies need a space before and after them to show up properly.

Bobbie, I went into your post with the link and put the "s" on -- it should work now. Thanks Rita for catching that! Big Grin

I am in zone 5b and I lost Skinwalker the first winter I had it. I had a suggestion from someone to put bricks around it in the winter so that it wouldn't heave and the second Skinwalker I purchased made it through our winter and I now have a nice clump of it. I haven't been able to get Desert Icicle to grow here. Tried it twice and gave up on it.
