Take a drive on a warm, sunny day anywhere in our region, and you're likely to spot daylilies sprouting along fence rows, ditches, and driveways, and even in open fields. According to the University of Minnesota's Extension Service website, more than 35,000 types of daylilies have been named, officially registered, and marketed, although other sites claim the number could be as high as 45,000. Ann and Mike Cluck of rural Galatia have a lifelong passion for these hardy perennials -- so much so that they began growing daylilies as a hobby in 1996. They quickly learned that other people also shared their passion for the stately flowers and now sell hundreds of varieties to customers through their business Ann's Daylilies. Debbie Whitlatch, a long-time volunteer with WSIU and former host of WSIU's 1980s kids' show JoJo and Friends, recently visited the Clucks at their Galatia farm to learn more about how they garden for fun and profit.
