What We’re Up To

Check Out Our Back in Stock Daylilies!

Have you seen our Back in Stock Daylilies? We created a new webpage this year that features daylilies that were previously such big hits they sold out.

We grow everything we sell so when a daylily is put out of stock, it can take a few years for it to increase in size and quantity in order for us to be able to offer it again. 

There is only a limited number of our Back in Stock daylilies— if you see something you like, act fast! If you miss out, never fear! Our hope is another variety will be available to take its place. Visit our Back In Stock page to see what’s currently available.
