Open House at Daylily Farm

BY Virginia Hawkins
Polkville, NC -- Saturday, June 15th was the annual Open House at the Slightly Different Nursery that specializes in hybrid daylilies. These plants are drought tolerant, sun resistant, and overall great performers in the garden. Paul Owen is the owner and the genius who cultivates by cross pollination with existing hybrids to create a new and unique daylily The new cultivars can take between 6-8 years to mature to the point that they can be registered and one can even name their own daylily. What a great gift.... better then naming your own star and then you can't find it in the Milky Way! Saturday was glorious weather for roaming through the thousands of plants set in one of the most scenic parts of North Carolina. The backdrop of mountains and lovely breeze was heaven. Paul's family (from all over the globe) gather annually to help him prepare for this event. Everyone chips in with getting the plants in perfect condition for visitors. The old blooms are carefully removed the day before so that the next bloom will stand out perfectly and show itself off in peak glory on the big day. They start opening up in the early morning and the fields come alive with color. He ships them worldwide to avid gardeners and collectors of hybrids. If you missed the Open House you can still visit Slightly Different by making an appointment. See website: for details.
