The listed varieties are available potted for immediate pickup. 

Daylilies are durable, easy to grow plants that need at least 4 hours of direct sun to bloom well.  Daylilies are drought tolerant, but will do best in well drained fertile soils.  Everblooming varieties will rebloom better if the spent flower scapes (stems) are removed after they have finished flowering.  The plants can be cut down to the ground in fall after the foliage has frozen, or the dead foliage can be left until spring when it can simply be pulled away from the crown.  Semi-evergreen varieties may not fully die down, but have some foliage that remains green all winter.  Dormant varieties have foliage that will fully die down in the winter. 

Early season bloom: June, Mid season bloom: July, Late season bloom: August, Rebloom: Produces more than one period of flowers.  

SPECIAL ORDERING OF OTHER VARIETIES:

We have many other varieites growing at the nursery than what is listed.  These varieties can be special ordered for spring or fall transplanting.  The best way to see all of the choices is to stop out in July at the peak of flowering and tour the nursery to see all of the varieties in full bloom.
