2013 AVALONIA DAYLILY INTRODUCTIONS
We are delighted to announce the release of six new Avalonia daylilies
in time for the 2013 growing season.
Hybridized and grown to the point of registration here at Avalonia
in our zone 4b Canadian garden,
these six cultivars have since spent the past two years being tested
in the garden of Karen and Steve Newman at Delano Daylilies in Delano, Tennessee,
to confirm their ability to grow and increase well, bloom reliably and well,
and set pods and flourish outside of the Canadian environment
where they first made their debut.
All have passed the litmus test with Karen and Steve, and are now lined out
and ready to spread their wings to other gardens and new homes.We are making it as easy as possible for you to get them, as Karen notes on the Delano Daylilies site:
"Delano Daylilies is proud to serve as the official USA Test Garden
for the Morry family of Avalonia Daylilies in Manotick, Ontario, Canada.
Our Canadian friends–Mick, Mick’s wife (Jennifer Patterson)
and Mick’s mom (Ms. Lanny)
– continue to send us their future introductions to grow for increase
and for testing in an alien environment from which they originated.
If they don’t grow well here, they are bound for the compost pile.
We’re honored to handle all of their sales if you live in the United States.
If you live in Canada or elsewhere, Mick and Ms. Lanny
will process your order from their garden in Canada.
This arrangement saves our stateside customers
the expense of a phyto certificate
—and we’re all about saving you money!
These plants were all bred in Canada and seem
to grow extremely well here in Southeast Tennessee.
More detailed information about Avalonia Daylilies
can be found on their web site at www.AvaloniaDaylilies.com.
If you see something on their site that strikes your fancy
(and if we are growing it in Tennessee), ask about it.
Mick and Lanny have been known to release a plant early.
You’ll never know if you don’t ask."
The Delano Price List link contains more than forty (40)
of Avalonia's registrations that are available for sale.
In addition to those, Delano is growing on a number of promising seedlings
being considered carefully for future introduction.
We visit Karen and Steven in their Tennessee garden each bloom season
to evaluate our plants and check out their as ever exceptional
and perhaps attend a regional meeting or visit other gardens in the region.
We are confident that the testing our plants enjoy -- both here in Canada,
and there in Tennessee provide valuable evidence of the durability
of our cultivars and their successful growing
in diverse climates across North America.
If you have any questions please feel free to write either Mick or Lanny
at our gmail accounts and ask away.
