The lust list contains daylilies that you would pay almost anything for if you could get your hands on a piece. I won't tell you what else is on my list...I don't want the prices to skyrocket! :)
There are very few daylilies I would pay anything for; I can safely say I have never paid more than $300 for a daylily, which is not something everyone who collects daylilies can say. I have been at a daylily auctions and seen a single fan of a daylily go for $1200. And another for $1850. And yet another for $4000. It's not common on the most popular auction site for daylilies (a site I adore) http://www.daylily.com/, to see them sell for well over $200 - daily.
This daylily is from John Kulpa, out of Michigan. It was registered in honor of a woman who has been involved with many aspects of Michigan daylilies for at least two decades with the Southern Michigan Daylily Society and the AHS- Barbara Delisle. She's a fiery lady who is as detailed as this daylily appears. Bold, refined and formal.
I love it and I love Barbara. We have grown a great friendship over the last ten years and I'm glad we weathered the storms.
