|Scott Alexander of Mountain View Daylily Nursery at Maleny, Queensland, Australia has retired on the 30th anniversary of his nursery. He was an influential figure in Australian daylilies. This large nursery will continue, however.|
Alexander registered five cultivars in 1993. One of which attracted much international attention: MALENY DEBUTANTE.
He has successfully bred many other interesting cultivars but has not registered them. These often can be found for sale.

Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cackle maniacally and people back away from you slowly.

|It is sad. Alexander was hospitalised for a long time with pneumonia apparently from breathing in potting mixture dust. The experience led to him calling it a day.|
