I went to Maryotts just to browse for next years orders and was greated on their home page by the following which I copied:

Maryotts said:
Did you know there are AHS sanctioned daylily shows throughout the country?
If you go to http://www.daylilies.org and click on "Daylily Shows and Exhibitions" you can find what shows are being held in your area. You do NOT need to be a member of the Society to enter an exhibit. If you win best in class or best in show in any AHS show with a Maryott introduction, let us know and we will send you a brand new Maryott Introduction.

I know that many of you do enter the shows and thought you might be interested in this. One day, maybe me, too!!

Blessings, Mona

I grow several of Maryott's daylilies here. I never went to any of the shows since most of them are a far distance from where we live. LIGHT OPERA is one which does so great here. I now have 2 clumps of it . I got it for hybridizing to get my perfect pink daylily .

Good way to promote your own daylilies. I couldn't do that, with Michele entering shows I wouldn't have a daylily left in a couple of years.

I don't think he's the only one...I remember hearing that Bob Scott of Topguns fame does, too (http://www.bobscottnursery.com/new_introductions_listing.htm... I won Best Double in 2010 at RADS (my one and only win) with Cherry Smash Cupcake, Tim Herrington sent me a plant...which I thought was very sweet (he is a very nice man)...in typical fashion, he put thought into it and sent me Weekend in Harrisburg which is named for Lilyhemmer, our fall meeting (region 3) and which has special significance for Tim (Katisue's last public appearance) and me (another one and only win for me...I won the plant in the raffle that the Herringtons donated that year....Dorothy and Toto).

That's good news about the show, will get a lot more exposure from the public and maybe a couple of new members. Did you set a date?

Thank you for the compliments. LIGHT OPERA is a wonderful grower and bloomer here. I have mostly open field around us so the gardens take a beating in the winter with the cold north /west wind hitting them straight on.

I also grow INCENDIARY, BECAUSE OF YOU, DEEP IN MY HEART, DILEMMA,MEXICAN MAGIC, PREDICTION AND SOCIAL GRACES. These do okay, but not outstanding as I've seen LO do here.
