Springwood Gardens, the country home of Dick, Karol and Jim Emmerich, and Karol’s daylily farm is located about 30 miles southwest of Minneapolis on top of a wind-swept hill. As such, they experience cold Zone 4 temperatures, usually with little to no snow cover.
Karol’s goal is to produce cutting edge, northern hardy daylilies which:
> perform well in the garden
> are distinctive
> have beautiful, clear (or even unusual) color or interesting patterns.
> put a smile on your face when you look at them. :-)
DAYLILY NAMES – Producing beautiful plants with inspiring names is the reason Karol started hybridizing. She tries hard to match the name with the face and plant habit. Many of the names have multiple meanings, ranging from serious to playful.
