The Humble Hemeroholic

As an admitted “hemeroholic”, I welcome you to enjoy conversations reminiscent of fireside chats from some of the people that have inspired me in my daylily journey.

I believe that the more you know, the more you’ll grow. As always, choose to be humble and always kind!

Your host will be me, Rhonda Veroeven, president and newsletter editor of the Wisconsin Daylily Society, and Co-Chair for the 2019 American Daylily Society’s National Convention in Madison, Wisconsin.

  • Mike Grossmann August 13, 2019
    Mike Grossmann from Northern Lights Daylilies. Mike’s program is much different than his wife, Kathleen’s program. He has been hybridizing a long time, and has quite a few amazing introductions out. He is exceptionally picky in how he determines the cultivars that will be introduced. Something that I think is essential to a strong hybridizing […]
