My attraction to daylilies came with the arrival of the red lily beetle (AKA lilioceris lilii, scarlet lily beetle and lily leaf beetle) to Manitoba.
Within 2 short years my entire collection of Asiatic Lilies had been nearly decimated!
I very quickly turned to daylilies as a replacement and have not looked back since. I soon discovered the Lily garden in Beausejour.
"The Beausejour Daylily Gardens have been recognized internationally as the coldest American Hemerocallis Society (AHS) display garden on the planet, and the only AHS display garden on the Canadian Prairies. "
