I began my big adventure in miniature rose hybridizing back in the mid-1980s when I had the great fortune to meet Ralph Moore, who lived less than a hundred miles from Bakersfield in Visalia, CA. He was well known as the “father of miniature roses” and was already in his 70s at that time. When I met him it was as if I’d known him all my life. He encouraged me to jump right in and try hybridizing.
When you see a picture of a daylily you're considering for your garden, try to determine whether the picture was taken in sunlight or in shade so you can determine whether you will like it in your garden.
