About Us

After a lifetime of growing other plants (roses, tropicals, bromeliads, etc.), Bob and Nancy started seriously growing daylilies in 2005. After a move from a small city lot to 1.7 sunny acres, we wanted to grow an easy-to-care-for plant. We visited two daylily nurseries that summer and our collection was started. In 2008, Nancy caught the hybridizing bug. Bob was more reluctant, knowing what work it would be, but he soon jumped on the bandwagon. We bloomed our first seedlings in 2009 and since have grown 350--3400 seedlings a year. We currently have 1000+ varieties from other hybridizers (the number changes frequently) and many (too many to count) seedlings. We registered our first daylilies in 2018 and now have 20 introductions.

Our hybridizing efforts are mostly on tetraploid daylilies that have teeth or eyes and edges, or are bitones, late blooming, or are orange. Nancy also enjoys working with both tetraploid and diploid miniature and small-flowered daylilies while Bob works on fulva varieties crossed with modern fancy daylilies. We have recently started working with reverse bitones as well.

Our daughter Elissa joined the hybridizing adventure in 2017. She likes working with purple.

We are members of the American Daylily Society and Midwest Hybridizers (Shirley Farmer Midwest Hybridizers Meeting). We are active members of Hoosier Daylily Society, which meets in Indianapolis metro area.

Bob has started a blog on various aspects of all things concerning daylilies. You may find the blog at cherryhillgarden.blogspot.com. We also post frequently on the various daylily pages on Facebook as well as our own page, Cherry Hill Garden.
