    Karol Emmerich, Springwood Daylilies

    In this episode, I had the great privilege to sit down with Karol Emmerich from Springwood Gardens in Jordan, MN. This award-winning hybridizer has not only been awarded the coveted Stout Silver Medal but has also earned the very high honor of the Bertrand Farr Silver Medal for all of her incredible accomplishments in hybridizing. She has been hybridizing for many years, and her amazing cultivars stand out in gardens throughout a wide geographic area.

    Mike Grossmann from Northern Lights Daylilies. Mike’s program is much different than his wife, Kathleen’s program. He has been hybridizing a long time, and has quite a few amazing introductions out. He is exceptionally picky in how he determines the cultivars that will be introduced. Something that I think is essential to a strong hybridizing program. I hope you enjoy listening to our conversation as much I enjoyed sitting down and having a conversation with him.

    Kathleen Nordstrom

    I sat down with Kathleen Nordstrom from Northern Lights Daylilies in West Concord, MN. Kathleen has always been a fan of flowers, and by chance ended up loving daylilies. She is relatively new to hybridizing daylilies, but her introductions are spectacular. Kathleen is a quality human and is absolutely perfect for this podcast. I hope you enjoy listening as much I enjoyed sitting down and having a conversation with her.

    Will Marchant

    I sat down with Will Marchant of Druid City Daylilies in Douglasville, GA. Will and I both share two of the same passions-education, and daylilies. He is a principal that gives 100% to his children, he is hilariously funny in person, and his daylilies are pretty phenomenal. I have had several encounters with this witty man, and I hope you learn something that you haven’t known before listening!

    Bob Faulkner Natural Selection Daylilies

    I was able to spend some time with Bob Faulkner of Natural Selection Daylilies from Dayton, OH while attending the Region 2 Winter Meeting. I didn’t ask him many specific questions, but rather just let our conversation go where it needed to go. Bob shared his passion for daylilies, his beliefs in how to present oneself, and a lot about his program My hope is that you enjoy this conversation with a true hybridizing leader in patterned daylilies.

    Mike Holmes and Larry Grace

    I was honored to talk with Mike Holmes of Riverbend Daylilies in Ohio, and Larry Grace of Graceland Gardens in Alabama. Both of these gentlemen are happy to share their love of daylilies, but their programs are difficult to see as neither of them travel very often. During our chat, they shared how they became interested in daylilies, some of their favorites, and a lot about color changer daylilies. This episode was a fun conversation between two friends that I felt I simply was able to listen in on.
