About three months ago, I began an odyssey that took me to places that, in my life long journey as a gardener, I never would have imagined. It all began with a daylily seedling.

Big healthy plants, but little bloom production. Never rebloomed. The three clumps I have bloomed the month of June and first week in July. No new scapes later. Maybe next year will be better.
