We are located in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, in the heart of the Pennsylvania Dutch country, where fertile farmlands and Amish buggies abound.
We select for cold hardiness, rebloom, branching, foliage, bud count, vigor, and of course, a beautiful flower. We appreciate the recognition of our work by others including awards by the American Hemerocallis Society. We are pleased that H. 'Her Best Bloomers' was awarded the Annie T. Giles Award for the Best Small Flower in 2008, Honorable Mention, Award Of Merit, and the 2015 Lenington All American Award for "Best Performer Over A Wide Geographic Area." H.
