Just saw the an e-mail announcing Paul Owen has his 2012 intros up on site. Very pretty. My favs are Chocolate on My Pillow and The Bodacious Ms. Billadeau both of which I really, really like.

The Bodacious Ms Billadeau is a lovely daylily. I happen to know the lady he named it after she is indeed everything Paul said in his description and more.

I will have to go back to Paul's site and take a look at his daylilies.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!

My Friend Charlie is my favorite. I also like the chocolate one, but I already have 2 chocolates right now, perhaps in the future.... ~Jan

I agree with you, Rita -- those are my favorites too, and I also like the first one and the one honoring Margo Reed the best. But of course I would take any of them... really beautiful!

Paul was the speaker at our spring regional this past June and the plants he donated were some of the healthiest I have seen, all were multiple fans and huge. Most of the plants in his slide show had great scapes and instant rebloom. I will have some of his soon, just need to make up my mind.

Paul is a good friend of mine. I met him through his daylilies 3 years ago, and I feel like I've known him all my life! He's one of those people who makes you feel comfortable right from the get-go. I have six of his new intros on my wish list, and 5 of his former intros! Oh no. Check out his previous intro Jane's Hope. He is trying to get this started through the Awards system, however you do that. He doesn't have a whole lot of it left. I think I need to order one now! Paul's plants do wonderfully for me, and he does always send huge healthy fans and is VERY generous.

Here are some of his plants growing in my garden - none more than 2 years here:

I couldn't control myself and just ordered Chocolate on My Pillow, The Bodacious Ms. Billadeau, and Jane's Hope!!! 3 down, 8 more will have to wait till later!!

Stephanie, Little Miss Lucy bloomed 100% cristate (I think I got that right) after the 1st year. It was a single the first year I had it.

Lisa That is good to know, I doubt I will get it since I am not working with that in mind, but I may have to just for me to enjoy later on.
