Dan’s description: “BILOXI MEMORIES is my favorite to date of all my hybridizing efforts. The reasons are 4-way branching and up to 25 buds on nice 44” scapes! And its Yellow! My favorite color. Plus it has good bloom size …7.5 to 8” and measures a 5.5 to 1 petal length-to-width ratio, i.e., a true narrow spider. It is a brilliant yellow with a nice green throat. It won the Best Seedling in the 2006 Mid-Carolina Daylily Society show.
I got the name “BILOXI MEMORIES” as a result of a response team that I lead to Biloxi, MS in Nov. 2004 soon after Hurricane Katrina. Believe me….unless you saw it with your own eyes you cannot fathom the destruction. Although I will never forget the terrible scenes of devastation, my main memories are of these wonderful survivors who did their crying and grieving early on and then rolled up their sleeves and went to work to rebuild.”
BILOXI MEMORIES has been beautiful in our garden and created quite a stir among garden visitors and especially during the Region 15 AHS Summer Regional Tour.
