Dear visitor,

On this page I would like to briefly introduce BridgeView Gardens and myself.

Horticulture was and is my life. After my retirement I still work as a part-time breeder of roses, shrubs, nursery trees and perennial plants for Boot & Co. Nurseries in Boskoop, the Netherlands. Over the last 10 years, I have developed an extensive assortment of exclusive daylily seedlings. This website shows a small number of them.

I am currently working on a series of continuously flowering, Stella d'Oro-like plants in all colors (but tetraploid). This series is based on a proprietary plant with superior properties. To achieve my goals within a few years, I have started an intensive and extensive crossbreeding program.

The site is intended to present myself as a daylily breeder to the professional market. Please visit our gallery to see the possibilities available for your own series, or package, in various colors.

Comments are appreciated via our contact section. I'll try to answer all of them daily.
