Daylilies: Twice the Fun
definitive guide to double daylilies. This is the first American Hemerocallis
Society publication devoted solely to the double daylily form. The book begins with The History of Double Flowers in the American Hemerocallis Society,
written by David Kirchhoff. This chapter follows the development of the double daylily
form beginning with H. ‘Kwanso’ and ending around the year
2000. Chapter Two is an illustrated guide to the double form complete with
methods to distinguish it from the other forms, especially forms often
mistakenly confused as doubles, such as polymerous and cristate. Chapter Three is a scientific discussion on
what make a double ‘double’ and why it can occasionally be difficult to obtain
consistent doubling. Chapter Four, The
Hybridizers: Part 1 highlights the 12 most prominent current hybridizers of
double daylilies, with extensive profiles of each. Chapter Five continues the profiles in The Hybridizers: Part 2, by Bruce
Kovach, highlighting another 21 hybridizers.
This is followed by Chapter Six, Awards
and Honors; a compilation of the individual cultivar awards received by
double daylilies in the American Hemerocallis Society. Full listings are
given of all double cultivars earning an award, where available. Pictures of all
the most recent winning cultivars are included.
The book concludes with perhaps the most exciting chapter, The Future: Seedlings and Future
Introductions. In this chapter, a
panel of 15 double hybridizers chose 73 seedlings, out of the many hundreds
submitted, as best representing the cutting edge and future of doubles for the
next few years. A complete index of all
the cultivars referencing the photographers is included.
