Welcome to the Hemerocallis Species website !
These web pages are almost solely dedicated to
the Hemerocallis species, its varieties and its clones/forms.
They were produced with some help of the "A.B.Stout e-Mail
Round Robins of the AHS" (AHS = American Hemerocallis
Society; see Hemerocallis Society www-Links).
As Hemerocallis Europa (HE) dissolved in summer 2017, the old HE-Website is hosted here now.
The HE-Website will still be updated concerning the in Europe bred cultivars, if you send me the necessary photos and infos.
In addition the Excelfile with the European hybridizers and cultivars will be updated from time to time.
This website is structured into the following sections:
Index of this Website

All comments for improvements, corrections and completion of these web pages
The authors started to build up a
Hemerocallis Species Collection
(only species, no hybrids/breedings).
The goal of this collection is not only to preserve
the daylily species, varieties, forms and clones but also to make
them available to the interested people, organizations and
botanical gardens. Therefore we are thankful for every Hemerocallis
species (the more information delivered with the plants
the better, like e.g. infos about its wild origin and/or former owners,
perhaps to whom it was already given, own plant number, since
when it is in possession and your own home address and if
available e-mail address). If desired the shipment costs will
be reimbursed in case it was correspondingly mentioned.
Besides the authors plan to do some scientific studies as soon
as they have enough Hemerocallis species. As already mentioned
above they are also willing to give away Hemerocallis
species as soon as they are big enough. Because the authors
have also some contacts to China and have from there already bought
and received/exchanged plants, it may be also interesting for
botanical gardens and already existing Hemerocallis collections
to make contact with the authors for exchanging plants (even if
perhaps in the first few years they can not deliver as much as
they may receive).
Thank you very much and a lot of informations from these web
pages is wished by:
Dr. Juerg Plodeck & Dr. Jianping Zhuang Plodeck
