What a wonderful idea to combine the two loves!! I used to be 2nd in Command of a Starship in Corpus Christi, Texas! Now I am a Master gardner in San Antonio , Texas!! What fun!! It would be cool to do one with the Borg theme somehow or a Starship Enterprise look! May you and your garden "Long Long and Posper"!!!

I love your Star Trek garden! I never knew so many plants (especially daylilies) had been named so. I was a complete nerd and bought a "Starship Enterprise" iris a couple of years ago. It is huge and beautiful. Since it blooms in the spring, it could be a great addition to your garden. Here is the info on it: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/75412/
Will you be selling some of the Star Trek daylilies in the Marketplace in the future?

I hope Lindalee will come online and answer your questions.

And I'll bet she'll be interested in your iris!

I have a Star Trek hosta garden, plus I have the Starship Enterprise iris. Not being a daylily fan, I wasn't aware of all the Trekkie daylilies. I may have to consider a daylily bed now! Are you aware there's a "Vulcan" hosta, also?

"Fascinating" as Mr. Spock would say!

There is also a variety of leaf lettuce called "Vulcan" - it's a gorgeous, deep red...unlike Spock's green blood, I guess.

There are also irises named "Star Fleet" and "Deep Space" and I'm sure we could find the dwarf variety of "Klingon Princess" amusing. I know this is an old thread but please forgive me as I came across it via google while looking at the Vulcan related daylily.
