Daylilies in artricle:
Burnt Hickory and Opa Klaus
by Bill Waldrop

In the program that Bill has planned he will speak about a new double daylily that he’s made by crossing a seedling with Sebastian the Crab. Bill will also focus on his new double, OPA KLAUS and show us his introductions from 2018 and 2017, plus many additional introductions that have received honors from members
of AHS.

Bill Waldrop attended Marietta High School and Georgia State University before graduating from Mercer Law School. He practiced law for 30 years in Brunswick and Marietta. He started growing daylilies around 1995 and he liked them so much he eventually removed his entire ½ acre vegetable garden and instead planted just daylilies. Many friends came to see the daylilies and there were several newspaper articles about his garden. His daylily garden was featured on “Gardener’s Diary” on HGTV in 2001. As his interest grew, he served as General Counsel for the AHS from 2000 to 2005. He and his wife, Diana, ultimately founded the Cobb County Daylily Society, and he has served two terms as President, while Diana has served two terms as Secretary and is currently the President. Diana and Bill have been married forty-eight years and they have one daughter, Kelley, and one granddaughter, Lily Rae. Bill retired from his law practice in 2007 to grow daylilies full time. He currently has 71 daylily introductions. In addition to daylilies and his family, Bill enjoys photography, greenhouse gardening, and Georgia Tech sports. He is a member of the Marietta First United Methodist Church and has taught Sunday School for many years.
