While we will spend much of the fling visiting gardens in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, we’ll also get out to the country and visit Springwood Gardens in Jordan, Minn., where for the past 20 years Karol Emmerich has been breeding and growing daylilies—thousands and thousands of daylilies.
Her more than 200-acre farm includes dozens of display gardens and is perched on top of a hill with big views of the valley below. The 1862 farmhouse and sculptures throughout the garden add to the beauty of the scene.
Karol, who left a successful career in business to follow her heart to the daylily business, will tell us about the long process of selecting, breeding and testing daylilies.
Many of Karol’s daylilies are big, bright and textural. Bring an extra memory card because the flowers are gorgeous and the views spectacular.
There are still spots available for the 2016 Garden Bloggers Fling in Minneapolis/St. Paul! Come Fling with us.
