I started collecting hybrid daylilies around 2005. I had taken the local Master Gardeners class about the same time. There I met others gardeners that were collecting perennials with names. I grew up on a farm that lays on Green River, so some of my earliest memories are about growing things, I was intrigued with all of the diversity in the modern daylilies. Spiders, minis, doubles, etc. So I began to trade with other growers. I never intended to grow into a business, but as everyone know perennials return and increase most every year.
My sister collected hybrid hosta and we would travel to see botanical gardens. My mother always had the historic purple iris and the yellow also. My mother in law loved tiger lilies and peonies and always shared her plants with me. So, I have always enjoyed growing perennials. My latest collection is semps.
I now grow over 400 dayliles, 150 iris and 40 hosta. I am located in zone 6b garden in southcentral Kentucky.
Below are a few of my favorite plants.
