I now live in the Appalachian mountains of Virginia, but I am a native of coastal Connecticut. I was fortunate to live in England for a few years, after graduating from high school (some time ago - lol). I am brand new to daylilies and only started buying them in 2002. However, I am completely addicted already! Who would think such a simple thing could bring so much joy...my garden space is quite small, as I live in a mobile home park (and I hate trailer-trash jokes). I now have over 150 plants, each a different cv. A very good friend and daylily collector laughs as she asks me what I'll do with all the flowers as they grow. (I think she wants them for herself!) I attended the Lyme Academy of Fine Art in CT., have a BFA degree from the University of Connecticut, and pursued graduate studies in Fine Art at Radford U. in Virginia. I believe the vast range of form and color is what initially attracted me to daylilies. The moniker of "coatfetish" comes from my odd need to collect vintage coats.

I live in: United States

My zone is: z6 VA.
