Two Announcements

Two Announcements 


Daylily Journal Article and Monday Night Lights Facebook Daylily Presentation

I am very proud to announce that my first article for the American Hemerocallis Society Daylily Journal is now published in the Spring 2018 issue. It is titled "Breeding and Selecting for Daylily Rust Resistance: Anecdotes From One Gardener's Experience". The article details the five year rust screening program I did from summer 2012 through fall 2016. I outline the most important aspects of such a program, from my own experience and from the scientific literature on breeding for rust resistance in other plant genera. If you are an AHS member, please check it out, and it you aren't, consider becoming a member by clicking here.

I am also very pleased to announce that my first presentation for the Monday Night Lights Daylily Presentation on Facebook will be Monday, March 26th, 2018. I will be highlighting the first seven years of my breeding program, detailing the development of my base breeding stock, from which I am developing my lines and the focus of that work. If you are on Facebook and are a member of the Monday Night Lights group, then please come see the presentation, and if you aren't a member, please consider joining the Monday Night Lights group for free by clicking here.

I hope you enjoy both my Daylily Journal article and my Monday Night Lights Daylily program presentation!
