6 1/2″ bloom, 23″ tall, Mid Season + rebloom, Dormant

Although there is no “true white” daylily, ‘First Lady Barbara’ comes pretty close! Big, 6 1/2″ blooms look icy white from a distance and really shine in the garden. Good rebloom and a light fragrance makes this beauty extra special.  Fun Fact: First Lady Barbara is what’s called a “nocturnal” daylily which means it opens in the afternoon instead of the morning. Try it in a moon garden as a beautiful and unexpected addition!

First Lady Barbara Daylily Features:

Although there is no “true white” daylily, ‘First Lady Barbara’ comes pretty close! Big, 6 1/2″ blooms look icy white from a distance and really shine in the garden. Sturdy scapes reach close to 2′ tall in our East Tennessee garden. Good rebloom and a light fragrance makes this beauty extra special.  Fun Fact: First Lady Barbara is what’s called a “nocturnal” daylily which means it opens in the afternoon instead of the morning. Try it in a moon garden as a beautiful and unexpected addition!

First Lady Barbara is a mid season daylily. We usually see its first blooms around the middle of June. If you live to our north, you’ll see it a few weeks after we do. If you live to our south, you’ll see it a couple of weeks before us. Good rebloom means these beautiful blooms will make an appearance off and on throughout the season.

First Lady Barbara is a dormant daylily. This means it is best grown in gardens that receive a sustained winter cold period—like those in zones 8 and lower.

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, you get to choose what you’d like at checkout.

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.

    What is your hardiness zone? Zone 6

    Truthfully, I’m an impatient person when it comes to perennials so I’m always so pleased when they bloom their first season which Lady Barbara did in my Zone 6/ SW PA garden. i thought it would take a few seasons, but this generous bonus plant from Oakes which I planted las fall is now gracing me with a few strong scapes and multiple buds this early August, toughing it out through the ongoing heat and humidity. And the blooms are so pleasing!!! She recieves a good dose of morning sun, then shade later in the afternoon when she opens to a creamy white with substantial blooms, which lightens up the garage wall across from my outside bar. Such a joy to come home to!!! So far, looks very vigorous and will do well. Couldn’t be more pleased and waiting for The Lady to really come into her stride.

    I received this as a free plant with my order this spring, and was surprised to see it produce 6 scapes (!!) this summer. The flowers are just like the photos, beautiful. The flowers open in the evening which is nice. It’s very vigorous, I am looking forward to seeing this plant when it reaches its full size. So far, it’s great.
