Hybridizing Program

Our early work focused on two different red varieties we developed at the farm, and the orange daylily Coleman Hawkins, developed by Dan Bachman. Starting with a hobby garden of about 50 plants, the garden has grown to nearly 3000 of our own seedlings. Our interest continues to be pretty broad, with nearly every color, size, and shape of flower making up the garden. We have been collecting a wide variety of genetics with the goal of developing showy flowers on hardy, vigorous plants.

With the addition of the Bachman hybrizing program in 2021, we expect to add those great varieties known for their vigor and unusual form, to ours for some exciting results.

Blues

A personal favorite, our blue daylilies have many forms and we are currently introducing patterns with some exciting results.

Greens

These daylilies are some of the most striking flowers in the garden with many unusual forms.

Doubles

Unusual and often unpredictable, these double daylilies are an eye catching addition to the program.

Ruffled

Laura’s favorite. These toothy flowers come in many color variations.

Orange

The one that started it all. Our original hybridizing work began with Dan Bachman’s Coleman Hawkins. Most recently Jamie Gossard’s Heavenly New Frontiers has given us some great results.

Red

Producing a large, vigorous red daylily has been a main focus of our hybridizing work. Several of our 2019 seedlings look very promising.
