Welcome to Daylily World 2012...
Greetings Daylily Lovers, Plant Persons, Old and New Daylily Friends,
Welcome back to Daylily World. This is the forty-second year since we began hybridizing daylilies, and each year daylily magic yields more wonder. Our love for daylilies began in 1952 and remains undiminished. We hope to continue growing and hybridizing into the next lifetime.
Kay Day, one of the Daylily Society’s most honored members, may have been the first to declare that folks come to daylilies for the bloom and stay for the people. Our appreciation for the thousands of plant and daylily lovers growing our plants is heartfelt. Thank you for your support and friendship.
Daylily clubs are encouraged to call us about their orders. We will be able to offer as specific and custom tailored collections as possible. Let us tweak your order to your total satisfaction. Please feel free to call or Email us with questions.
We are located on top of historic Abbots Hill, twenty minutes from the Lexington airport and about 90 minutes from the Louisville and Cincinnati airports. Daylily World is 10 minutes from bourbon distilleries, 20 minutes from downtown Lexington, Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill, the beautiful Keenland Racetrack and the Kentucky Horse Park, home of the 2010 World Equestrian Games. Other destinations around the verdant Bluegrass countryside are nearby.
Come and enjoy Daylily Splendor in the Bluegrass. Make plans to stay and visit historic homes attractions and gardens of the bluegrass. We feel good about the year ahead and the ongoing progress made in the advancement in daylilies. Thank you for your continued support and interest.
David Kirchhoff and Mort Morss
We made our first double tetraploid crosses in 1973, a time when there were less than twenty named tetraploid double daylilies in existence. We registered our earliest tetraploid double daylilies in 1980. This form continues to evolve into ever more complex of patterns, shapes, sculpting and color. We know you will enjoy our new ones for 2011!
Our singles continue to excite and enchant. Preceded by some of the most award winning singles in history these new cultivars promise great potential for both the garden and for hybridizing!
