2010 AVALONIA DAYLILY INTRODUCTIONS
We are vWe are very pleased to announce the introduction
of 9 new Avalonia cultivars for Spring 2010.
Seven are out of the hybridizing program of Mick Morry,
and two are the first releases by Lanny Morry.
All nine plants are AHS registered tetraploids,
and all are fertile both ways.
These plants were hybridized in Canada
in Avalonia's zone 4b/5 garden and have been grown
on both in Canada,
and in our wonderful AHS test garden,
owned and operated by Karen and Steve Newman,
in zone 7, in Delano, Tennessee.
All nine plants have proven to be very hardy
and vigorous both north and south.
We believe that the dayglo introduction,
Maple Leaf Forever, should be of particular interest
to adventurous hybridizers
looking for a plant that does amazingly
interesting things when bred to diverse colours
- from purple to white, and forms
- from bagels to spiders and unusual forms,
as it produces unique new colours,
forms, and eyes in its kids.
Visit the section devoted to MLF or our 2009 seedlings
to get a taste of what it has been doing here
where we have learned to expect
the unpredictable with Maple Leaf Forever!
All plants are offered as double fans
and shipping will begin in Spring 2010.
Pricing is in US $. in the U.S.A.
All orders should be placed with
Karen Newman at Delano Daylilies.
American orders will be shipped by Karen
from Delano Daylilies
All Canadian orders will be paid in Canadian funds
and shipped by Avalonia from here in Canada.
Once again we thank Karen and Steve
for their continued commitment to and support of
our hybridizing program,
and our wonderful webmaster Larry Longson
for bringing daylily visitors a wonderful website
with a huge selection of images of our introductions,
future introductions, and seedlings,
along with information on our garden and
how we grow daylilies in our northern Canadian garden.
