sooby said:Yes it was a term used before the 1980s. There's an article in the Daylily Journal of Spring 1979 about bud builders mentioning it was not a new phenomenon. The article says 'Ollalie Gold Rim' was reputed to have produced 96 blooms on a single scape. The following are listed as bud builders in the article:
Ollalie All Summer
Texas All Summer
Song of Hiawatha
Jewel of Hearts
