This lovely landscape holds numerous flower gardens with various perennials and bulbs. Their specialty is hybridizing day lilies. You will see plants that were cross-pollinated in 2017, yearlings planted in the spring of 2019 and blooming for the first time, and well over 100 plants saved from crops that date to 2004. The best hybrids get a Cape Cod name (Ex. Cape Cod Lemonade) and are registered with the American Hemerocallis Society. If you are curious about hybridization, or simply would like to enjoy an array of beautiful blooms, this is the garden to see. Orders taken for August pick-up.
