There are rose people and there are orchid people. And then there are daylily people. Like their brethren, daylily people are obsessed with their flower, devoted to it, a slave to it. Daylily people grow 60 varieties and yearn for 100, or they tend 500 varieties and aim for 1,000. They go to auctions, they trade on the Internet, they order from Florida, and they pay hundreds of dollars for a single flower. They breed daylilies, tending thousands of delicate seedlings in a quest for the ultimate show-stopping blossom, and then cast the ordinary ones in a compost pile.
