This Daylily can send up as many as 3 sets of scapes in a
season so I wanted it to have the word "return" in it's name.
It will memorialize a family story with a "return" theme.
For several years we lived next door to my sister and her husband. Our nephew Chris, now grown, was a toddler and spent many hours at our house. One Christmas he received a small stuffed toy (a dog) tucked into his Christmas stocking and he named it Woof. That dog became his favorite toy and something he had to have when he went to bed. It traveled everywhere with him and was even left in a hotel room once. It cost more to ship it home than the original cost of the toy, but they were thrilled to get him back. After a day spent at our house, Woof disappeared. We looked everywhere, but he was not to be found, and Chris had to separate from his beloved friend.
Our dog "Nipper" LOVED stuffed animals ..... a couple years after Woof's disappearance when planting some annuals, I found something in the ground that I was afraid to touch. Further examination and I discovered that it was Woof, right where Nipper had hidden him. He was given a bath and returned to Chris.
A daylily named "Woof Returns" seems fitting as a Christmas gift, so on Christmas day 2013, this daylily was given to family members who always laugh when the story is retold. (Well, a marker and the promise of delivery in Spring)
