Mama's Cherry Pie is my website (and Facebook) cover girl right now. Depending on the weather conditions, she looks a little different each day; but always beautiful. This daylily is reminiscent of cherry pie and ice cream on a hot summer day.
Mama's Cherry Pie came to my garden as a division given to me by my friend Roger. Roger has been a constant inspiration to me. He is a daylily judge and also hybridizes new cultivars. Roger owns Eastbrook Gardens in La Crosse, with his wife Carol. They grow 800+ named cultivars in a naturalized setting that should be featured in Better Homes and Gardens. I can literally spend *hours* walking around looking at all the different plants. Roger has hundreds of hybridized seedlings that he's growing on and watching carefully to see if they warrant registration. Every time I go to their garden I marvel at all he has done.
If there's a worthy daylily, Roger knows about it. I'm so happy he shared Mama's Cherry Pie with me.
