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.

  1. Minneapolis, MN

    Zone 4a. I’m loath to give a mediocre rating to a daylily with such a vaunted reputation for prolificacy as Hyperion, but it simply has not performed as well as two other Oakes daylilies shipped/planted at the same time, i.e., last fall. I was pleased with the big fans of Wayside King Royale and Mauna Loa sent by Oakes, but in comparison Hyperion’s fans looked like they’d been on a starvation diet, more like slender scallions than daylilies. (I’m aware that Hyperion has grasslike rather than bladelike foliage and predates modern hybrids.) Hyperion survived the winter but has stayed small and relatively unproductive. WKR and Hyperion share the same bed and have received identical care. Each WKR fan produced scapes, but only half the Hyperion fans did. WKR put out 51 blooms this season to Hyperion’s 12. (Mauna Loa, the gift accompanying the Oakes order, is just coming into bloom–its six huge fans have produced six scapes holding some 60 buds!) I realize that I may be jumping the gun, that a daylily gardener shouldn’t count on much happening the first season. Still, the disparity between Hyperion and the other two daylilies has me wondering if slow development is characteristic of Hyperion or if it just seems slow because relatively immature fans were planted with large ones. In any event, I promise to come back next year and change my rating if Hyperion lives up to its rep.
