Re: Lots of questions...need help re lilies & peonies especially...

Ceres: Unfortunately, I don't know the varieties...they are a pretty
soft orange color, and I suspect the plantings go back to somewhere
around 1940? or so when my grandparents moved into their house in
Davenport. They could be older, as the peonies I've told you about ended
up in Davenport via moves from Muscatine and Keota, but were planted by
my greatgrandmother Laura much earlier than this and given to my grandma
when she married in 1922 and moved to Muscatine. The daylilies most
probably have a similar story, if I know my grandmother, thrifty woman
that she was...sigh, I really miss her sometimes and really wish she
could have seen my gardens.
