Bob McConnell looks back at one of the day lilies he hybridized. He calls it "Bob's Maybe" for now until he decides whether or not to register it. McConnell, 63, has been selling day lilies for 27 years at McConnell's Plantland. He calls himself a "Hemerholic", a play on the scientific name for the day lily, Hemerocallis, to show his addiction to the flower.
