From Library Journal:

For the past century American botanists and backyard breeders have been indulging in a love affair with the genus Hemerocallis. Through their ingenuity and perseverance, modern cultivars of stunningly beautuful colors, shapes, and textures have evolved. Eddison has written an extraordinary testimonial to the men and women who have succumbed to "daylily fever," including the legendary A.B. Stout, "Father of the Modern Daylily." From relatively simple hybridization techniques to more complex genetic manipulation (yielding the modern "tets"--tertraploids with double the standard number of chromosomes found in the diploids), bigger and bolder cultivars have evolved. Eddison's spirited tribute to the "quintessential hobby flower" and its passionate devotees is recommended for public libraries.
