Sale Extended! Regular price is $25.00. The Open Form Daylily: Spiders, Unusual Forms, and Other “Exotics”—First Edition (2017) by Oliver Billingslea Presented in a full-color 8½" x 11" format to enhance the quality of the photography, the text and layout of The Open Form Daylily: Spiders, Unusual Forms, and Other “Exotics” are by its author Oliver Billingslea. This publication is first and foremost a botanical book, treating two recognized classes of daylilies, “spiders” and “unusual forms,” while the final chapter offers a brief look at those open form daylilies which hybridizers sometimes call “flamboyants” or “exotics.” It is a book designed for the pleasure of the ordinary reader, as well as the aficionado who seeks more information on the detailed history of these increasingly popular forms. Data for each cultivar is taken from the American Hemerocallis Society website, and, whenever available, parentage is cited, so that the reader may see the historical importance of daylilies which have figured largely in the efforts of hybridizing. Photographs were selected in respect to the importance of specific cultivars and the quality of available photographs. Over 6,000 photographs were submitted for consideration. Two abbreviations are used throughout the text designating awards given by the AHS: AM for Award of Merit and HM for Honorable Mention. An Index lists alphabetically the names of all hybridizers included, the names of cultivars featured in photographs, and the names of contributing photographers. 232 pages, 616 full-color illustrations, 10 sketches; softbound, first edition (2017).
