If you are looking for a specific daylily that is not listed for sale
in the 2016 listing, please inquire as to its availability.

We have continued to add to our collection each year from hybridizers
whose plants have proven to do well in our gardens.

Last winter was another tough one.  There was plenty of snow on the ground for insulation, but before the snow reached any depth, there was a
freezing rain spell, followed by a flash freeze.  This put a layer of ice over the daylilies.  There was more winter damage than I have seen for7 years.
All newly acquired plants are grown for several years to evaluate their performance in our zone 5 (freeze/thaw) growing conditions. 
After evaluation, ideally, division is done in the spring and summer.  If plants are divided in the fall, after bloom season, they are held over for  another
bloom season to ensure a blooming size plant will be available for shipping.
All plants for sale are grown outside, in the ground. 

Some plants originating from Southern U.S. states are obtained a few years after release to evaluate their
individual hardiness.  If they prove to have that elusive antifreeze quality, they are kept & added to our inventory listing.
It is interesting to see what works & what doesn't.  Most poor performers are shipped back South to a warmer zone. 
Some that survive, but do not thrive, are kept to use their pollen in our hybridizing program on a strong Northern pod parent.
