Plant Overload – Sell, Sell, Sell

After 7 years, the jewels in my garden have grown to the extent that now is beyond the time to dig and divide them. So, my friends in Bismarck, North Dakota and surrounding regions, you are in for a treat on May 30, 2015 from 3-7 in the evening. Holland House Gardens on Avenue C, Bismarck will be having a sale of daylily and miniature hosta treasurers.

A large part of the joy of gardening, to me, is the information and stories associated with every plant I invited into my garden.  Who produced it, where will it thrive, who would it like as it neighbor, and how long will it be before its growth cuts off it prime flowering potential?  Is it going to survive and thrive in my zone 3-4 region?  How will the color and pattern match or accent or illuminate the adjoining plants? Does it need lots of water, or just a trickle?

When I became enamored of the daylily world, I had no idea there were so many individuals and couples all over the US investing in their garden and farm soil, and producing unique, registered daylilies with the American Hemerocallis Society. It still stuns me that as of 3/09/2015, there are 79,352, registered daylilies. In the hosta world, which is almost as obsessed with creating new and unique plants as the daylily crowd, there are 5,384 registered hosta.

In the next few weeks I will begin adding photographs of the plants that will be dug and divided and available for sale on May 30, 2015 in Bismarck, North Dakota.  This will be an on site, one day sale only.
