The July 2012 Lily Garden Bus Tour included visits to four gardens from Marshalltown to
Shellsburg to Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The temperature topped 100 degrees but the bus was fully
air-conditioned! This well-known plant nursery in Cedar Rapids owned by Sue and Dave Kramer
features a hosta & shade plant collection  tucked in under tall trees that opens up to sunny daylily
fields hybridized by Sue Kramer.  A beautiful place to wander on a hot summer day!
