HOW TO GROW DAYLILIES: Daylilies are very easy-to-grow. They like a lot of sun and they like a lot of water. For more information on how to care for daylilies, click here.
WHAT DAYLILIES CAN I GROW: Most of you can grow any of the daylilies we sell. If you live in an area with a sustained cold period like we do in East Tennessee, you can grow all the varieties. However, If you live in an area that doesn’t get freezing weather in the winter (like zones 9 and 10), dormant varieties won’t work for you; you’ll need to choose evergreen or semi-evergreen varieties.

BIG PLANTS! When it comes to daylily plants, bigger is better! All of the plants we ship will be three fans or larger — two or three times (or more) what you might receive from other companies. Larger plants get established faster and bloom more quickly!

FARM-FRESH TO YOU! All of your plants will be freshly dug when you order. The leaves are trimmed and the plants are washed and air-dried. Your daylilies will be out of the ground less than 48 hours before they’re headed your way.

BONUS DAYLILIES: We send free daylilies (we call them “bonus” daylilies) with every order. These daylilies are equal to about 20% of your order and are the same huge, healthy plants we sell. Just leave the decision up to us and we’ll pick something you’re sure to love!

ABOUT US: Oakes Daylilies is a family-owned daylily farm that’s been in business for three generations. Our daylilies grow in home gardens, city parks and botanical gardens across the nation– including Hawaii and Canada. We are known in the industry as Daylily Experts and grow over 1000 varieties of daylilies on nearly 70 acres in East Tennessee. But over 50 years ago, we started just like you—with one daylily in a home garden.

    Brilliant Red, Great Early Bloomer

    C Jeffrey Mc Lean (verified owner)

    I needed something colorful in early spring and bought six Charles Johnson daylilies. My specimens were healthy and happy when they went into the ground, and each of them bloomed very soon after planting this spring. While most were brilliant red, occasionally the color would fade to a darker hue as the afternoon progressed. Still, they were beautiful and perfect for my purpose (which was to surround my mailbox in color). A wonderful red for early in the season.

    My grandfather Lee Gates named this daylily after me, his first grandson. I have several in my yard, and they are a very hardy plant with several beautiful blooms each year. No daylily garden would be complete with these beautiful reds in them.

    This is my favorite red in our garden. It never disappoints. The blooms look larger than the 6″ shown and are several and bloom for several weeks. This is simply a great daylily.

    One of the most wonderful ‘bloomers’ I have. It blooms early and just keeps on with lots and lots of blooms. Can’t wait for it to be ready to divide. Love it.

    This was a gift from a friend. You can’t go wrong with this daylily. I had so many blooms in 2005 I can’t wait for this summer to enjoy this one again. I highly recommend this one for the beginner.

    This flower is an eye catcher! A beautiful red and although it is a prolific bloomer I always want more. I now look forward to another fantastic showing when it reblooms. What a joy. I may have to order another. Double my pleasure.

    Does not look like the photograph here. It is a much darker burgundy as in the description. Still, it is a very lovely flower, just darker than I expected to see. Prolific bloomer.
