Bud Builders

Continual Rebloomers
Click on the photos to see them full size. You may reuse these photos for non-commercial purposes, but please give me credit.

Some may wonder why I picked these, out of the 50,000 registered varieties. There were a number of factors involved.

* First, I chose daylilies I was familiar with and have observed, grown, or photographed here in the northeast.

* I tried to minimize the number of yellow, old-fashioned daylilies listed, and just list a few of the best of them.

* I didn't want to exclude the Florida breeders, but I wanted to emphasize lesser-known breeders.
