We are Jim Cruise and Jacob Braun, currently living in Peoria, IL, on a basic, small city lot. We haven’t let the size of our yard prevent us from collecting a wide variety of daylilies, though – from tall and big to short and small, we have it all.
Our collection began with a simple landscaping project and 14 varieties of daylilies in the summer of 2009. As of July 2013, we now have a full yard with over 400 different kinds growing. You can believe that each one is very good friends with it’s neighbors!
The purpose of this site is to provide information about our garden and collection, and to share with the world our fascination with these plants. Feel free to join in the conversation if you’d like, and ask any questions that you might have.
