The German association of perennial growers (Bund deutscher Staudengärtner) announced Hemerocallis Perennial of the Year 2018. In a press release quotes Das Grüne Mediahaus Anna Bremermann who runs together with her husband Jörn Bremermann a perennial nursery in Wiefelstede (Germany). The catalog of this nursery includes over 200 varieties. Anne Bremermann is fascinated by daylilies and above all by the huge variety of cultivars. “Large or small flowers, simple or playful, slender or broad – and in countless shades and partly with fragrance”, she says and mentions that the American Hemerocallis Society registered already over 81,000 varieties.
She also points to the new variety ‘Samtriese’ (top right on the picture). This variety is bred by Hanne Rupp and introduced to the market by the Bremermann nursery. “Due to its 120 cm tall stems ‘Samtriese’ shows its 13 cm big flowers well above the attractive foliage.”
