Hello Daylily Friends,
Last summer Diana and I went to Minneapolis for the AHS National Convention. It was a wonderful convention. As a part of the trip we were given two plants that were hybridized by Karol Emmerich. One is named MINNESOTA NICE, and the second is named FAITH THAT MOVES MOUNTAINS. Both plants bloomed today, and I just had to call Karol, and tell her how absolutely delighted and thrilled that Diana and I are with both plants. Remember that we received both plants "bare root," and we just planted them in our main garden. MINNESOTA NICE is just a whopper of a plant: a tall scape, outstanding branching, fast growth, and a lovely flower. I have been so satisfied with it that I am using it with a number of both my seedlings and introductions. FAITH THAT MOVES MOUNTAINS is just the perfect dark color. I'm going to use it to make my dark flowers bigger. Both of these plants are going to be "deep" into my program. I just truly admire and adore both plants. Remember, both of these plants were put in the ground, bare root, less than a year ago. Thanks Karol!
I've got to get back out into the garden. The rain has stopped. Again, thanks Karol for the wonderful gift plants!
