Welcome to the country home of Dick and Karol Emmerich, and Karol's daylily farm.  Weíre located about 30 miles southwest of Minneapolis on top of a wind-swept hill. As such, we experience cold Zone 4 temperatures, usually with little to no snow cover.

Karolís goal is to produce cutting edge, northern hardy daylilies which:

> perform well in the garden
> are distinctive
> have beautiful, clear (or even unusual) color or interesting patterns.
> put a smile on your face when you look at them. :-)

Springwood Gardens is pleased to offer the following:

SALES INFORMATION AND ORDER FORM

DAYLILY NAMES Ė Producing beautiful plants with inspiring names is the reason Karol started hybridizing. She tries hard to match the name with the face and plant habit. Many of the names have multiple meanings, ranging from serious to playful. Click on the link to see whatís behind the name of each new introduction.

You might be interested in what the future holds. Karol grows about 2500 new seedlings each year. The following are a sampling of the bloom, and will give you an idea of the genetics being used.

The greenhouse seedlings pictured above have all been moved outside for testing. Some have already been introduced, some will be introduced in the near future (see POSSIBLE FUTURE INTRODUCTIONS link above), some are still being watched, and some have been moved into the display area (budcount is too low to introduce, but the faces are too beautiful to part with). However, most of them are just a nice memory, as they failed to meet all of the criteria for selection as an introduction. I like to call this latter group "performance art". I was able to experience their amazing beauty in person for at least a short while, and am able to share that with others because of the digital camera.
