Daylily Walk

Our daylily walk image gallery

This is a tour of The Daylily Walk, organized chronologically by decade.  We have chosen about 60 favorites from among the 800+ named cultivars in the garden.  All of the daylilies to the left of the path are diploids.  Everything to the right of the path is a diploid until the 1960s, when tetraploids are invented.  The first number with each photo, for eg. B2, refers to the bed number on the Garden Map. Click on the thumbnail pictures for a larger image.
