Welcome to Work In Progress Gardens
A family owned and operated garden located in Southwest Wisconsin.

We never imagined when we bought our first three daylilies and one hosta in 1997 that we would get bitten by the bug. Now here we are official plantaholics. We have many flower beds filled with hundreds of daylilies and hosta along with many sun and shade annuals and perennials. A friend we purchased plants from gave us some daylily seeds. We planted them and they grew. Most of which must have been bee crosses as they all looked very similar. Not so impressive…………….

We learned of the Wisconsin Daylily Society from that same friend and decided to join. One of the first meetings we attended, some of the door prizes consisted of seeds, seed starting mix and a starter tray (thank you John Sheehan). What the heck we tried it. We kept going to the meetings and seeing the awesome daylily presentations by “famous” hybridizers and were impressed with the seedlings of our fellow club members as well. That was it………………..we were hooked!

We had a lot of encouragement from friends in our club. Many club members  took seedling blooms to meetings and activities. One good friend took a liking to one of our seedlings and said gee you could name that one after me! Hence our first introduction “In Jane’s Honor” second introduction “Raspberry Slush” came from those little door prize seeds.

They say you come for the flowers and stay for the people. We agree!!

Visitors are welcome with peak Daylily bloom in mid July
