Editor, Scott Elliott

The definitive guide to double daylilies. This is the first American Hemerocallis Society publication devoted solely to the double daylily form.  The book begins with The History of Double Flowers in the American Hemerocallis Society, written by David Kirchhoff. This chapter follows the development of the double daylily form beginning with H.Kwanso’ and ending around the year 2000. Chapter Two is an illustrated guide to the double form complete with methods to distinguish it from the other forms, especially forms often mistakenly confused as doubles, such as polymerous and cristate.  Chapter Three is a scientific discussion on what make a double ‘double’ and why it can occasionally be difficult to obtain consistent doubling. Chapter Four, The Hybridizers: Part 1 highlights the 12 most prominent current hybridizers of double daylilies, with extensive profiles of each.  Chapter Five continues the profiles in The Hybridizers: Part 2, by Bruce Kovach, highlighting another 21 hybridizers.  This is followed by Chapter Six, Awards and Honors; a compilation of the individual cultivar awards received by double daylilies in the American Hemerocallis Society. Full listings are given of all double cultivars earning an award, where available. Pictures of all the most recent winning cultivars are included.  The book concludes with perhaps the most exciting chapter, The Future: Seedlings and Future Introductions.  In this chapter, a panel of 15 double hybridizers chose 73 seedlings, out of the many hundreds submitted, as best representing the cutting edge and future of doubles for the next few years.  A complete index of all the cultivars referencing the photographers is included.
