I garden in zone 5/6 Missouri. I started years ago with assorted perennials and different annuals before starting to collect daylilies in 1992. My collection really started to take off in the last two years and I now have 300 plus different daylilies in my backyard garden with multiples of some and several unknowns.

I like to grow hosta's, coral bells, pulmonarias, columbines and other shade plants in the shady parts of my garden. Some favorite companion plants for the daylilies are ornamental grasses, sedums (especially Autumn Joy), rudbeckia Goldstrum, Gaillardia Goblin, Salvia Victoria blue, asiatic lilies and I like barberry, butterfly bush and spirea shrubs for backbone to the beds. Check My Journal for photos of some of my daylilies.

I am married (42 years in 2003) and have 2 grown daughters. We are semi-retired dairy and beef farmers. My husband also has an auto-rebuilders license and shop here on the farm. We like to travel and I like to read, yard sale, paper piece quilt and paint ceramics.
