We are AHS members and have been growing daylilies since we got hooked at our local daylily show. Before we went to the show, Doug said, "Now don't get started with daylilies, because I don't like them", to which I replied, "Don't worry, I don't like them either..."
Famous last words...beats me why we even went to that daylily show.
Since then, we have managed to accumulate way too many, with thousands of new seedlings blooming every year.
We have several goals, but the main thing after beauty is garden performance. Daylilies at their best should give you continuous bloom all summer. We want to produce beautiful, hardy reblooming daylilies with great performance.
Winters are usually harsh in our zone 5 climate, and lasting until April or May. Temps get down to -15 for prolonged periods of weeks on end. Summer temps can exceed 100 degrees with prolonged drought.
Any plants that do well here are definitely worthy of the label of northern hardy.
