PLANT PATENTS
PPAF = Plant Patent Applied For. Propagation prohibited without a license from the breeder.
PP# = Plant Patent number. Propagation prohibited without a license from the breeder.

RUST: Disc. (rust) = Discontinued due to rust susceptibility. We do not spray for daylily rust, and don’t believe
anyone else should either. The monthly (or more) spraying is a waste of chemical pesticides, as it only suppresses the
fungus. Daylily rust (Puccinia hemerocalloides) affects no other plant types, and only some daylily varieties. It is
unattractive but not lethal to susceptible varieties. When daylily rust arrived here by air from Central America, we
destroyed over 400,000 plants of the most susceptible varieties, and propagated the resistant ones. Unless otherwise
noted, our varieties are rust-resistant in California gardens.
