  • Note: Recently (fall 2009) CFIA no longer requires you to fax your forms to a regional office, they have centralized the faxing of forms prior to entry into Canada through their Ottawa office (613) 221-3835 for questions.  The following link will take you to the correct forms and information needed to import plants to Canada from the U.S. Please note that you are required to fax a Phyto-Sanitary Certificate, an Invoice from the Garden where the plants originated and the Application for Permit to Import Plants that you are about to open. Fax all of three of these items to the number on the form, and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency will fax you back a pre-clearance to bring your plants to Canada.

    The New Encyclopedia of the Daylily

    By Ted L. Petit and John P. Peat
    It's no exaggeration to say that daylilies are the premier flowering perennial. From a handful of wild species belonging to the genus Hemerocallis, breeders have produced tens of thousands of hybrids in a dazzling array of colors, patterns, and shapes. Adding to their appeal is their hardiness, ease of care, and ability to combine well with other plants. With so many daylilies currently available, a pictorial guide to the best and most exciting cultivars is essential. More than 1700 daylilies — 1400 of them new to this edition — are illustrated in close-up, detailed photographs. Each photograph is accompanied by a comprehensive description that includes information on color, size, bloom season, and parentage. Also included are chapters on daylily physiology, the history of the genus, the history of daylily hybridizing, hybridization techniques, and cultivation. Peat and Petit have created an authoritative reference and essential resource for anyone — nursery professional, hybridizer, designer, or enthusiast — who wishes to explore the vast potential of these beautiful plants.

    Another Great Book !

    The Daylily, A Guide for Gardeners

    John Peat and Ted Petit have come to the rescue in this authoritative overview of all aspects of daylily history, cultivation, and breeding. Inspired by R. W. Munson Jr.'s classic treatment, Hemerocallis, they fully describe the history of the modern daylily. In the heart of the book, they detail the various types of hybrids and provide indispensable advice for growing all of them well. More than 200 beautiful color photographs and illustrations round out the work. Click on the book cover, to order your copy now!
