Awards & Honors
Awards Presented at the 2017 Region One Convention in Minnesota:
I was elated at the National Convention to have Scarlet Pimpernel win the Ned Roberts Spider/Unusual Form. What an honor to get this award with Region One being the host for AHS National Convention of 2013. This award, established in 2007, is to honor the memory of hybridizer Neb Roberts. Ned worked tirelessly to promote these daylily forms, acting as an educator and mentor for both collectors and hybridizers. The award is to be given annually at the AHS National Convention for the most outstanding Spider or Unusual Form cultivar blooming in a clump in a convention tour garden, as voted by attending AHS members. Thank you to those that voted for our “Scarlet Pimpernel”.
Our hybridizing program along with Don Lovell’s hybridizing program were featured in the AHS Journal Winter 2009 “Fast Friends, The Hybridizing Programs of Don Lovell and Nan Ripley”
