"Doorakian Daylilies and their Future"

  The presentation will include the introductions for '2014 and '2015, unnamed seedling clumps, and new Bedford seedlings for '2013.  In addition, Curtis Noel and Zachary Hickey of Orange, MA will present slides of new Doorakian seedlings which bloomed for the first time in Orange, MA, and as well, a few seedlings of their own, based on non- Doorakian seedlings.  This will be an interesting meeting, where the daylily culture of Curtis and Zachary led to bloom on my seedling plants that were in some cases only three months old when transferred from Bedford to Orange, MA.  The future of Doorakian seedlings will be discussed by the three speakers. Also, slides from the 2013 Regional 3 Convention will be presented.
