I am trying to locate anyone who sells the "Baby Keith" daylily, hybridized by Primos in 1982. If anyone knows or has any strong leads, please help. I haven't so much as found a picture, much less a seller or name of the hybridizer's garden

Thank you!

Thank you. :)

If anyone even recognizes the hybridizer's last name and can tell me the name of the hybridizer's garden or even a city or state where the hybridizer lives, that would be great. Any leads are appreciated!

I saw 50 daylilies registered by Primos on the AHS site, but the last one was in 1986, or somewhere close to that date. The earliest seems to be about 1966. So, that leads me to believe that they are probably no longer actively hybridizing. The majority appear to be named after family members.

Type Primos into the Hybridizer box on the right, and click search. This will take you to all of the ones that the person registered. I didn't see any familiar names, but with so many out there, that isn't surprising.

Sorry, but that is all I could find!

The registration code shows Mrs. A. K. Primos, Jackson, Ms. That is the only information given. If you go to the page linked below on the AHS website it will give you contact info for the AHS officers in Region 14, there is a historian listed who might have some info on Mrs. Primos. By clicking the Mississippi Daylily Societies link at the top of the page you might find a club in that area that may be able to help as well.

Excellent possible lead, Char!!! I hadn't thought of any local clubs in the area last known about the hybridizer. If nothing else, the club could put the word out through their members to see if anyone happens to have it in their garden and can share a fan or two with DogNDaylilies! Thumbs up
