My very own "madgardener", my mother died a couple weeks ago. I have inherited
vast gardens and fortunately am able to afford her garden helper.
What I would really like to do is get a golden yellow day lily named after her.
name was Zlata which means golden in Yugoslav (where she was born).
Which is the largest lily hybridizer? Does anyone know if I could buy naming

Unfortunately, I receive no money, gifts, discounts or other
compensation for all the damn work I do, nor for any of the
endorsements or recommendations I make.
Water Gardening Society (www.iwgs.org) auctioned off naming rights to a
water lily -- just one, these rights having been donated by some
mucklymuck in the society (Texas hybridizer Kenneth Landon) -- & the first
bidder was willing to pay $2,500 -- putting the kabosh on anyone else
making a bid.
For daylilies I'd bet if you contacted hybridizers & made them an offer,
they'd be eager to make an extra thousand dollars if you made an offer, &
the name Zlata would be especially apropos. Perhaps you could contact some
through the American Hemerocallis Society (www.daylilies.org) who could
give you information on obtaining naming rights or at least a list of
"Of what are you afraid, my child?" inquired the kindly teacher.
"Oh, sir! The flowers, they are wild," replied the timid creature.
that would possibly be Oaks Daylilies in Knoxville. I'll see if I can find
their phone number and address for you, or look in the ads in Horticulture
and Fine Garden. They have their ad in both of them. Possibly in Garden
Design too. They are HUGE and have all sorts of their hybrids. You'll
probably be able to get them to do this. My love to you and I know your mom
is at peace and gardening in a perfect place now, no weeds, no pests, just
perfect and awesome flowers and bushes and trees. ((hug))
