he course of our lives can take some unexpected detours. Here I am with editor's
shoes on again. The Popularity Poll for the year 2002 in this newsketter since no
T
Fall 2002 Winter 2003 issue was published. Other features that usually appear in
the fall winter newsletters are also in these pages along with the traditional, seasonal
spring summer topics.
First, I would like to thank all Region 2 Pop Poll voters for sending in their ballots via
snail mail, e mail, and for voting from our electronic voting booth. The cultivars for whom
we Region 2 members voted are certainly widely acknowledged beauties and consistent
performers.
Many of us had the good fortune of being able to attend an AHS national convention. The
location during the 2002 Summer was not only within driving distance for me this year, but
Gisela Meckstroth
the hotel stood at an intersection where I had lived during the first seven years of my life in
the USA (1957 1965). Attending our regional summer meetings and national conventions
certainly gives participants ample opportunities to make daylily friends from so many places, and it is a thoroughly
enjoyable time for old and new daylily friends.
This year's growing and blooming period has given us Region 2 members a pretty good idea of how rust can behave up
here in our northern region. I hope you will read the write up of Katherine Whitten's (Graduate student at The Ohio
University under Dr. Nameth) rust update in the Region 2 Symposium 2003 pages in this issue.  Our AHS Scientific
Studies Chair Cindy W. Johnson reminds us to visit the updated rust information web site: http://www.daylilyrust.org and
to participate in the Rust Survey (once on the web site, click on the Survey link).
Garden Judging: I was surprised to see that I have grown, or have seen (in the local, regional, or national tour gardens),
all but two of the Stout Silver Medal candidates printed on the AHS 2002 Official Awards & Honors Ballot. That gives
me special joy since I deduct from this that I have been around daylilies for quite a while now.
Our Region 2 Popularity Poll voters had to pare their selections to a maximum of 10 cultivars, a little more difficult than
selecting the favorite 25 for the previous years' Pop Polls. What is as important as  looking at the top vote getting culti 
vars is the fact that all daylilies earning votes from Region 2 Popularity Poll voters tend to perform well in our climate
and can be recommended to newcomers in our 25 local clubs and to our gardening friends and neighbors.
Thank you to all of you who did take the time to vote in the poll.
