<< The list owner - Joe Halinar - is a very
 knowledgeable and opinionated professional grower. His concerns are that the
 Daylily breeders are concentrated in the South (Florida) and are no longer
 concerned with growability in the rest of the country. Breeders outside the
 Florida area are at a competitive disadvantage due to the shorter turnaround
 time for seed-to-flower in the Florida region.  >>

     Joe Halinar has always been a controversial fellow.  He is partly 
correct.  Although most of the Florida Hybridizers are releasing quality 
plants, I am a bit concerned with inbreeding and the use of known "rotters" 
in breeding programs.  However, this is not by any means limited to Florida.
     Hardiness is also a question, but it also is with Irises hybridized in 
warm dry climates when grown in cool moist climates.  Then again, remember 
that many of Bob Carr's Daylilies not only grow great here, they are good 
performers in Zone 4.
