A mentor of mine brought in some lilies for sale at our yearly daylily sale. "It's Gigi's Love" he say's loudly proudly hoisting the
freshly dug fan's into the air, being modest he say's nothing else and begin's socializing and getting ready for the sale. Three
hours later as per usual we start marking down prices on the lilies and I noticed hardly any of his fans have moved. After asking
if anyone wanted any with no response I buy them all I knew this was a hardy lily or my mentor wouldn't have brought it. Little
did I know that I just started a life long obsession and passion in seeking "The Gold Wire Edge" or GWE.
A garden requires patient labor and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them.

You need to post a picture, there doesn"t seem to one on NGA and the ADS registration picture is not very good Sad

I had never heard of this term before and am not a serious grower as of yet but I love daylilies and have been actively learning about them and their culture. I came home after the sale and planted the lily's straight away and thought nothing more of them
only that I was very proud to have a cultivar that my mentor had hybridized and planned on sending in for registration with ADS.
