    Oscie liked to find names for daylilies on the Missouri map, following the lead of his mentor, the nurseryman, Will Dill (Winner of the Stout Medal for "Renee"), who had chosen the name "Solo" from the map for a registration of Charles "Doc" Branch. Dill was a nurseryman in St. Louis in the 1960s and he would make final selections in Doc Branch's garden and choose names. Oscie's place names include Femme Osage, Kimmswick, Ozora, Caledonia, Carondelet, Frost Avenue and Etzkorn (street names).
