This Daylily Can Help Make A Difference! | My First Daylily Introduction

H. 'Blessings in a Backpack' (Schmith 2012)

Buy this daylily and feed one at-risk elementary school child on the weekends for the whole school year!

Originally I envisioned this first introduction being released and sold in limited collections in 2013 to benefit child hunger in the United States through the established and successful “Blessings In A Backpack” school program.  But the need is now, and these daylilies are ready for new homes!

For many elementary school kids, the cafeteria meal is the only one they get and on the weekends, nothing.  The Blessings In A Backpack organization provides backpacks full of nourishing food and gives the child the peace of mind knowing they will eat that weekend.  It builds self-esteem and feeds their minds and bodies.  It is a cause I think we should all get behind - feeding our own first.  It only takes $80 to feed a child through this program for the whole school year.  

Yes.  The need is that great.  
Pause to think about your own refrigerator and pantries right now.

H. 'Blessings in a Backpack' has been officially registered with the AHS and is now available for purchase!  I have only 15 divisions available this fall, shipping September 18 from Illinois!!  

100% of sales from this daylily go to the Blessings In A Backpack organization to feed kids in rural Illinois communities.

H. 'Blessings in a Backpack' is a fiery orange and gold bi-tone with consistent paprika sepal stippling and a haloed golden throat.   Segments gleefully display tightly crimped edges.  Selected for its vigor, outstanding show presentation and garden value.   Here are its stats: 5.5”, 35”, ML, Dormant, Tetraploid. 22 bud count, 3 way branching.

I've loved it since it first bloomed and although it isn't full of fad, ruffles and teeth - its saturated, prolific, proportionate and very deserving of the garden real estate it takes up.  Its scapes and branching are show-quality, and it earned a Purple Ribbon in the 2012 Southwestern Illinois Hemerocallis Society Daylily Show.
