Kansas Kitten daylily purple daylily with deep purple eyezone

Black Eyed Stella

A tried and true favorite, this extra-early season bloomer is usually one of the first daylilies to bloom for us in East Tennessee.

Renowned for its excellent rebloom, these small, bright gold blooms appear very early in the season and continue to bloom on and off throughout. An All American selection, ‘Black Eyed Stella’ is known to perform well across the country.

I LOVE THIS PLANT. Blooms are huge and not one looks like the other, ever! Scapes are tall and my plant’s blossoms range from vibrant pink with a yellow throat to almost a melon blend depending on the weather. I have this one right in the front of my house so I can enjoy it!

How to Plant Daylilies

Correctly planting your daylilies is the number one thing you can do to ensure they get the best start possible. Ken Oakes explains how to do so in this short video.

Why I Grow Oakes Daylilies

Don and Judy

Initially, Don and Judy came to us by accident.

“I stumbled upon your website years ago,” explained Don. “I was looking for daylilies and found your site. Now we have a yard full.”

Judy, the self-proclaimed photographer, walks the garden in their Athens, Georgia home each evening after work. She likes to photograph the daylilies and flower beds that Don, the family gardener, has designed.

Why Oakes?

Selection

From the thousands of daylily varieties available, we’ve selected varieties (including many award-winners) that we know will grow and perform well for you.

Extra-large plants

It’s what we’ve built our business on — bigger plants (two or three times what you might receive from other companies) for more blooms quicker!
