Welcome to my garden!

I bought my first daylily in 1993 after seeing daylilies at a show put on by the Daylily Society of Louisville. Within 3 years and purchasing several daylilies I began hybridizing in 1996 to see if I could come up with plants that were different from their parents. I did not have any goals of ever registering a daylily but in 2004 I registered two, ‘Gretchen’s Surprise’ named for our first dog, Gretchen and ‘Double Sanibel Sunrise’, named for our favorite Vacation spot, Sanibel Island.

I have always considered myself a back yard, side yard and front yard hybridizer. Claudia, my wife and I live on an average size residential lot in Louisville, Kentucky, and thus have a limited amount of space to plant seedlings, evaluate them and line out those I have registered and evaluate those that are potential introductions. To date I have registered 36 daylilies and 31 have been doubles. A number of my seedlings have won Best Seedling at past DSL Flower Shows.

My favorite form of daylilies is doubles and in recent years I have been working with double unusual forms. ‘Ginseng Man’ (Wolff-D 2013) even though registered as a double exhibit the double unusual form. ‘Sippin Bourbon’ (Wolff-D, 2014), ‘Anie’s Quilts’ (Wolff-D, 2015), ‘Bourbon and a Fine Cigar’ (Wolff-D, 2016), are also this form. For those that attended the 2016 National Convention in Louisville, you may have seen these in some of the tour gardens.
