2013 Daylily Collection

I thought that I had already put our 2013 daylily collection on our blog. Evidently not! There are 9 introductions for you to consider. All have been field grown for at least 3 years. We use no sprays or chemicals on our field grown plants except for Nutricote and Milorganite fertilizers and Treflan for weed control.

Shipping normally begins around the first of April, depending on the weather. We ship to the U. S. only and the shipping fee is $12.00 plus $1.00 for each plant.

Remember, a left click over an image will give you a larger picture.
