The 2017 Revised Edition of THE ILLUSTRATED GUIDE TO DAYLILIES
Editor, Oliver Billingslea
Included in the Revised Edition are 10 new photographs, replacing dated material in the earlier edition. Newly included are photos of the 2014, 2015, and 2016 winners of the Stout Medal.
All of the Lenington All-American winners from the first winner in 1970 through the winner in 2015 are pictured. (The last publication to have these winners up through 2001 was the 2002 NEW DAYLILY HANDBOOK.)
In the chapter on “Companion Plants,” many Perennial Plants of the Year are included. New to this edition are the 2015 and 2016 winners.
The chapters on "Photographing Daylilies" and "Registration Procedures" include new photos, among which are the 2016 AHS Photography Awards for Single Bloom, Multi-bloom, and Landscape, and new illustration for a daylily to be pictured on the AHS Website after the Checklist is finalized spring 2017.
One of the most significant changes was to correct a statement on p. 11 of the previous edition concerning A.B. Stout's observation about a semi-evergreen daylily "which retained many of its leaves and appeared somewhat evergreen when grown in the North, but lost all its leaves and went dormant when grown in the South.” Inadvertently, the words "North" and "South" were interchanged; but members of the Scientific Committee confirms the accuracy of Stout’s statement as written above.
The second significant change is that another member of the Scientific Committee pointed out that the photo of zinc deficiency on p. 13 is that of a corn leaf, not a daylily leaf, as implied.
The sections on "Japanese Beetles" and "Earwigs" on p. 79 are rewritten to make both sections more informative, and the picture of the European earwig on p. 91 has been replaced with that of a Riparian earwig, which is considered more beneficial.
Updated numbers, such as the number of current registrations, the number of Stout Medal recipients since 1950, and the number of Lenington All-American Awards since 1970, are included.
An updated Index and Bibliography is provided, including the most recent publications from AHS.
Like the previous edition, the 2017 Revised Edition is truly the “primer” for anyone growing daylilies.
