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.

    After 35 Years I've Found My Favorite!

    Steve Blades (verified owner)

    I’ve been growing daylilies for around 35 years and I’ve purchased them directly from Oakes either in person or online since the mid-90’s. I’ve loved them all, but Gus Townsend just blows me away! I have to grow my lilies in large pots in TX now which limits some features such as number of blooms, reblooming, etc. for many of my plants, but Gus Townsend the first year I planted it just took off and produced quantities of large gorgeous blooms. It’s a definite winner for anyone’s garden!!!

    Holy wow!

    Betsy Katz (verified owner)

    I took a chance on Gus Townsend because it hadn’t been reviewed yet & I’m so glad I did. I planted three of these in the front of a border last season, & was a tad disappointed that they didn’t bloom that year. This year though wow!!!! They have huge blooms that stay bright even in full sun. These are one of the most amazing daylilies I have ever seen. They have continually bloomed for nearly a month, which may have been their rebloom. They have ruffled edges that make you need to take a closer look. Mine are more magenta than red or pink. They bloomed in August here in Colorado, when most things are done for the season. I highly recommend this wow factor daylily.
