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. Wonderful tall yellow

    Kathy Shreve (verified owner)

    this tall clear lemon yellow daylily is a great back-of the border daylily. Very tough and undemanding, it puts on a great show every year even when neglected. Great with almost any other color, it blooms for a very long time, and to top it off, it’s fragrant, and performs outstandingly in my zone 4, poor soil, erratic mountain weather garden. Can’t be beat, and it’s fragrant, too!

  2. Temecula, CA

    Though I absolutely LOVE this reliable daylily for its gorgeous blooms, graceful foliage, and sweet smell, I have to regretfully admit that here in my Southern Cal. small suburban backyard with space at a premium, and enjoying a nearly year round growing season, I should probably have planted evergreen rebloomers. June and July are heavenly, but with so many excellent alternatives, next time I will buy daylilies that give me nearly year round color, and move these lovelies to a less conspicuous position. Hyperion dazzles for a few weeks, then is gone til next year. I’d rate them a 10 if not for above reasons, though.
