Jerry & Faith Bange Daylilies - Tues. Jan. 27, 2015

posted Jan 11, 2015, 4:06 PM by Bowie-Crofton Gardener   [ updated Jan 26, 2015, 4:50 PM ]
 Jerry & Faith Bange will share their love and knowledge of daylilies. Jerry's talk will be on daylily terminology, cultural practices, showing, and hybridizing daylilies. Jerry and Faith’s collection has grown from Jerry’s 10 cultivars to over 1,200 today. While Faith is primarily interested in growing and showing daylilies, Jerry’s primary interest is hybridizing.In 2009, Jerry and Fred Benzinger, a prominent daylily hybridizer, jointly introduced ‘Ben’s Zinger’ one of Fred’s seedlings which Jerry had selected.  Also in 2009, Jerry crossed ‘H. Light of the World’ and ‘H. Caesar’s Head’ in the Bange’s Davidsonville Garden.  From that cross, he registered ‘Nanjing’ in 2014.

The Bange's will answer questions after the presentation.
