The New Daylily Handbook

The classic 1968 American Hemerocallis Society Daylily Handbook has been revised and expanded. Not just a picture book or catalog of daylily faces, it contains extensive writings from the "golden age" when Hemerocallis was a research organ for no less than the U.S. Government. Contributors such as Virginia Peck, Robert Griesbach, Toru Arisumi, R.W. Munson, Jr. and Shiu-ying Hu make this book a valuable tool for serious study of the daylily.

An Illustrated Guide to Daylilies

This new AHS publication is an excellent source of information for all daylily growers. Greatly expanded from Daylilies: the Beginner's Handbook, which it replaces. This 112-page book contains many more color photos and illustrations and enhances the text that clearly explains what growing daylilies is all about. Many additional sections have been added to address unusual forms, polytepals, labeling, landscaping with daylilies, daylily flower arrangements, general care and pests and diseases. Much more detailed than the FAQ found here, this book will answer most of your questions about this great perennial. Also included is an original poem written by AHS member, Rod McKuen, entitled Daylily Blossoms.

The Color Encyclopedia of Daylilies
Ted L. Petit and John P. Peat

A vast array of daylily hybrids has been developed from only a small group of species in Hemerocallis. Hundreds of new daylilies are introduced each year, and no other book describes and illustrates so many of the hybrids in one place. The parent species are also included, but the focus is on the amazing developments that have been achieved through hybridization.

Close-up photographs show the detailed characteristics that hybridizers work for. Each photo is accompanied by a thorough description of the daylily's color, size, bloom season, and parentage. In addition to the pictorial encyclopedia, the book offers extensive information on cultivation and hybridization.

DAYLILIES FOR THE GARDEN

With his usual thoroughness, author Graeme Grosvenor presents background information on daylily species, major factors influencing the type of daylily to grow, planting and cultivation tips, descriptions and careful explanation of classification and an extensive section listing major cultivars of both large and small flowered daylilies. To inspire his readers he presents plenty of suggestions for gardening and landscaping visions. And though daylilies are known for their ease of care, he includes details of control of the pests and diseases occasionally affecting them. The color photographs are a visual feast and Graeme does not stint on relaying his photographic tips. For his photography alone, this book is one to treasure.
