Originally published in Pioneer, Region 1 of the American Hemerocallis Society
If you are a novice to daylilies, this book will certainly open the door to the wonderful world of daylilies. It is beautifully illustrated, well written in a conversational style and has a clear, straight on Australian style. It is also the personalized account of a many years of experience with daylilies as a hobbyist and entrepreneur (owner-manager) for Graeme Grosvenor at Rainbow Ridge Nursery in Dural (just west of Sydney), New South Wales, Australia.

The Gardener's Guide to Growing Daylilies

Just as there are daylilies that knock your socks off when you view them the first time, The Gardener's Guide to Growing Daylilies will also knock your socks off. We daylily growers will want to have it in our libraries for all the right reasons. It is an excellent reference and a thorough survey of modern daylilies. It is a carefully distilled list of the better performers of the truly distinctive old and new cultivars. It is a small coffee table book with gorgeous photographs. It is a discussion of cutting-edge daylilies and breeding trends. It is also current - something that is not easy to do in an arena as dynamic as hybridizing daylilies. And it is international in scope. All readers will learn something of value from this book and will come away from it with a sense of excitement for the future of daylilies. You may even dream a little about marvelous new introductions.
