|This is Missouri hybridizer Dave Niswonger's H. 'Gasping for Breath' blooming in my Illinois garden.|
She died in 1990, a few years before I would buy my first hybrid daylilies, and 20 years after her introduction of H. 'By Myself.' They called her a super mom of daylilies; a lady with a doctorate and a tiny, weather-worn face. My favorite quote of hers shared in the book is, "I found out I couldn't do everything." Amen, sister.
