Steve speaks with Pam Erikson, better known as the Queen of the Daylilies here in B.C. because she has what is quite possible the biggest collections of day-lilies (hemerocallis) in Canada.
Pam fell in love with daylilies in the late 1980s and immediately began collecting every one she could find. Within a few years she had a garden with more than 3,000 varieties.
It was a natural leap to turn the two-acre garden into a home-based nursery and today, Erikson’s Daylily Nursery has a reputation that extends across Canada and many parts of North America.
Pam has also run Vancouver’s biggest garden show for a few years and is a popular speaker at garden clubs throughout the province.
