Dan Bachman to Speak at Hudson Valley Iris
and Daylily Society

The Hudson Valley Iris and Daylily Society (HVIDS) will have Dan Bachman as a guest speaker at their November 5th meeting. The meeting will be held in the Community Room of the Marlboro Free Library, 1251 Route 9W, Marlboro, New York. They begin gathering at 1:30 socializing over snacks and beverages and the meeting starts at 2:00 pm. Marlboro is about 1½ hours south of Albany.

Cold Tater Stomp, Bachman, 2016

Dan Bachman hybridizes daylilies at The Valley of the Daylilies in Lebanon, Ohio. You can see his daylilies at www.thevalleyofthedaylilies.com
Many of us have Dan’s daylilies in our gardens and it will be a treat to hear him speak.

Holiday Party

Yes, I know it’s still September, but the holidays can creep up on us! Since many of our HADS holiday parties in previous years have conflicted with the Hosta Society (UNYHS – Upstate New York Hosta Society) and so many of our members belong to both societies, we have decided to combine our celebrations this year. We will be meeting on December 9th at the Fellowship Hall of Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Scotia. More details will follow –
stay tuned…..

made for each plant and lists will be accurate. We also need people to help with washing and separating the daylily fans and bagging and boxing the daylilies. Our work days are August 17th and 18th, the Thursday and Friday before the sale. A more detailed note will be coming out in the August newsletter.

Watch Out for Daylily Leafminers
From the AHS website

In the last few years, reports of leafmining damage to daylily leaves have been received from several states. This damage appears as whitish meandering, serpentine trails caused by larvae feeding between the upper and lower surfaces of daylily leaves.

In 2011, specimens were reared and identified as Ophiomyia kwansonis Sasakawa, an agromyzid fly not previously known outside Japan and Taiwan. As of January, 2014, positive states are: AL, AK, CT, DE, FL, GA, IL, IN, KY, LA, ME, MD, MA, MS, MO, NH, NY, NC, OH, OK, PA, SC, TN, TX, VA, and WV. It has also been found in Europe, Slovenia.

The small, pale yellow larvae (up to 5mm) travel up and down in leaf blades, leaving long mines which become progressively wider as the larvae grow. This damage remains until the leaf dies. Pupation occurs in the larval tunnel, with the pupa appearing like a small (3-4mm), tan rice grain, under the surface, often near the leaf base.

The adult fly (3-4mm) is small, black, and rather stocky with broad triangular clear wings. Adults may be seen walking up and down daylily leaves or resting on blooms. There may be one to several generations per season, depending on

Barbara will also bring plants for sale – cash is recommended – and samples of the plants highlighted will also be available so you can see for yourself the new varieties of 2017.

Barbara Pierson graduated from Cornell’s School of Horticulture with a degree in Floriculture and Ornamental Horticulture She originally developed her passion for plants while working at her parents’ nursery and has been the Nursery Manager at White Flower Farm since 1998. Over time, she has manipulated the crop schedules in their greenhouses to use nature’s energy to get sturdy, well-rooted, and properly hardened plants for their customers. A popular guest on television and radio, she is regularly interviewed and quoted as an expert in newspapers across the country. She was featured in a five-part series of articles in The New York Times about home gardening in the summer of 2010. She has been a guest on WNPR’s “The Faith Middleton Show” and Martha Stewart Radio’s “Morning Living.” She is the face and voice of many of the how-to gardening videos available on White Flower Farm’s Web site. Her encyclopedic knowledge of ornamentals and edibles mean her talks are both enormously instructive and highly entertaining.

Do You Have Babysitters?
By Stephanie Kronau

No, not for children – but daylilies! If you have babysitter plants, we need to get information back to Frank and Sharon on how many fans our little charges are growing this year. It may seem early – if your gardens are like mine, the plants aren’t up enough to be able to count fans. But I expect (and hope) that with the warm weather predicted for this week that soon they’ll be stretching towards the warmth and sun.
