This updated version of Stout's rewarding book includes and introduction and updating by Dr. Darrell Apps of Longwood Gardens and a Foreword by the great English gardener Graham Stuart Thomas. Its treasures include twelve exquisitely detailed color illustrations from watercolor plates commissioned by Dr. Stout and never previously published together, and thirty-four original black-and-white photographs. For those that might not know, Arlow Burdette Stout is the man behind today's glorious rainbow of daylilies. Through fifty years of intensive, intuitive labor and countless thousands of seedlings he developed hybrids in brilliant reds, roses, and golds. Distinctive "eye" patterns and bicolors also charted new directions, encouraging other hybridizers to pursue his adventurous path.
