a shameless plug (I get no commission) for Deerwood Gardens in North Waterford, Maine, where Beverly Hendricks raises thousands of daylilies of all varieties. I took my visiting thirteen-year-olds there yesterday (they thinking, Ho hum, gotta humor the grandma) ...then they were just as dazzled as everyone is on seeing the array of colors this time of year.
