Welcome to the gardens of

Tim Hobbs and Donna Pass

Southern faces
in Northern places


My goal as a hybridizer is to create beautiful, fancy faces on cold hardy strong well branched plants.

We cross modern southern plants with cold hardy dormants, and let mother nature weed out those not suitable for our climate.

As dormants display those traits desired, they are selected and moved for further evaluation and continuous hybridizing with southern and dormant plants.

New introductions

We have 5 introductions available for spring. These daylilies have been noticed and commented on by many visitors and will continue to do so where ever they grow.

Field grown daylilies

Non-selected and some past selects are available at $15.00 each or 3 for  $40.00 for 3 to 5 fans. You pick, We dig.

Previous introductions

Other hybridizers' named daylilies are also available for sale.
