In this episode, I had the great privilege to sit down with Karol Emmerich from Springwood Gardens in Jordan, MN. This award-winning hybridizer has not only been awarded the coveted Stout Silver Medal but has also earned the very high honor of the Bertrand Farr Silver Medal for all of her incredible accomplishments in hybridizing. She has been hybridizing for many years, and her amazing cultivars stand out in gardens throughout a w...

Mike Grossmann from Northern Lights Daylilies. Mike’s program is much different than his wife, Kathleen’s program. He has been hybridizing a long time, and has quite a few amazing introductions out. He is exceptionally picky in how he determines the cultivars that will be introduced. Something that I think is essential to a strong hybridizing program. I hope you enjoy listening to our conversation as much I enjoyed sitting down and...

I sat down with Kathleen Nordstrom from Northern Lights Daylilies in West Concord, MN. Kathleen has always been a fan of flowers, and by chance ended up loving daylilies. She is relatively new to hybridizing daylilies, but her introductions are spectacular. Kathleen is a quality human and is absolutely perfect for this podcast. I hope you enjoy listening as much I enjoyed sitting down and having a conversation with her. --- Send...

I sat down with Will Marchant of Druid City Daylilies in Douglasville, GA. Will and I both share two of the same passions-education, and daylilies. He is a principal that gives 100% to his children, he is hilariously funny in person, and his daylilies are pretty phenomenal. I have had several encounters with this witty man, and I hope you learn something that you haven’t known before listening! --- Send in a voice message: https...

I was honored to talk with Mike Holmes of Riverbend Daylilies in Ohio, and Larry Grace of Graceland Gardens in Alabama. Both of these gentlemen are happy to share their love of daylilies, but their programs are difficult to see as neither of them travel very often. During our chat, they shared how they became interested in daylilies, some of their favorites, and a lot about color changer daylilies. This episode was a fun conversati...

I sat down with American Daylily Society’s Webmaster, Jacob Braun.  Jacob is extremely knowledgeable and incredibly service driven. He volunteers and gives more to the society than many!

I was able to enjoy bending the ear of the American Daylily Society’s Registrar, Elizabeth Trotter. Elizabeth has always been kind to me and is a very private person. When she agreed to sit down with me, I was honored. This was very much out of her comfort zone, and I am so incredibly happy to have received an insider’s look into the role of registrar as well as learned more about this sparkly, tiara-wearing, professional, and i...

Jim Cruise, the American Daylily Society’s Photographic and Videographic Awards Chair is my guest this week. He is a very humble man.

I was honored that he “agreed” (he was forced!) to sit down and have a conversation with me. --- Send in a voice message: ht...
