A vast array of daylily hybrids has been developed from only a small group of species in Hemerocallis. Hundreds of new daylilies are introduced each year, and no other book describes and illustrates so many of the hybrids in one place. The parent species are also included, but the focus is on the amazing developments that have been achieved through hybridization. Close-up photographs show the detailed characteristics that hybridizers work for. Each photo is accompanied by a thorough description of the daylily's color, size, bloom season, and parentage. In addition to the pictorial encyclopedia, the book offers extensive information on cultivation and hybridization.

A pictorial reference showing the colors, designs, & other characteristics of many hybrids, with information on cultivation & hybridizing.

From the Author:

For a gardener new to daylilies, selecting which daylilies to buy can be a difficult task, and the first hurdle to overcome. There are over 40,000 cultivars to choose from, and, to make matters worse, daylilies range in price from $2 per plant for older cultivars to $200 per plant for new hybrids. There are many fine daylilies on the market today that the average backyard gardener may purchase without prompting a divorce. Investing in a copy of The Color Encyclopedia of Daylilies will be very worthwhile since here gardeners will have at their finger-tips all of the information needed to not only grow daylilies but also to create their own hybrids. And we list 1200 of the most popular daylilies in commerce today.
