For those of us who don't have the AHS districts right at our fingertips, could you tell us which states incompass Region 4?....I think the daylily and its name are both very kicky. A really nice cherry red color for sure. Congratulations to Ms. Jones...Maryl

Region 4 consists of: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, New Hampshire, New York, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, Rhode Island and Vermont.

I bought some of Lori's intros this year to add some different forms into the garden and use for hybridizing.

That is a very vibrant bloom. I looked and see she has some neat names too.

I saw these in person at Harmon Hill Farm this past summer and took their photos for those who are interested. They were very striking in the garden.

I saw some of her intros at this year's National: One very inventive garden bed consisted entirely of intros from female hybridizers, including some of Lori's. I liked the garden presence of her plants so much that I ordered a couple from her when I got back.

As is so often the case, most of the photos I've seen do not do her plants justice. Including my own. ;)
