Daylily “Doris Gere” graces Emerson Garden

You just have to see this. Doris Gere’s nephew, Ludlow Lambertson, a daylily hybridizer, has named one of his spectacular successes after favorite aunt, the late Doris Gere. It’s purple. Claudia Gere and Mary Hankinson put their heads together, one thing led to another, and now a generous clump is planted in the Emerson Garden. The spot for the daylily is particularly poignant because of the deep friendship between Edna and Doris and their long devotion to the church. DORIS GERE has medium purple petals and sepals with a magical chalky purple eye and serrated edge. Green throat. See it for yourself in the Emerson Garden, especially as it develops over the years, or right now on this website:www.artgallerygardens.com
