Wild Horses Daylily Features:

‘Wild Horses’ daylily is a customer favorite as well as a favorite of those of us here at Oakes Daylilies.  This striking daylily has large creamy-yellow blooms with a black-purple halo on tall scapes. This color color combination makes a stunning presence in the garden.

Large blooms are 7″ and grow tall on scapes over 3′ in our East Tennessee garden. Good rebloom means you’ll get to see these lovely blooms off and on throughout the season.

An early season bloomer, we first begin to see the first blooms of the season around late May/early June. Thanks to good rebloom, it’s not unusual to still see blooms in July here in zone 7. If you are to our north, you’ll see it begin to bloom a few weeks after we do. If you are to our south, you’ll likely see it a couple weeks before us.

We think these big creamy blooms look outstanding when planted en masse, but they also look gorgeous when paired with other near white or dark daylilies. Stunning!

Wild Horses is an evergreen daylily. This means that those in planting zones 2-11 can enjoy it’s beauty.

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.

    You won't be disappointed

    Hesitant to purchase because of price but did so in 2019. 2020 brings good growth to foliage with 4 very tall scapes and gorgeous blooms. True to pictures. Don’t let price deter you from this beauty!

    This was my first year with Wild Horses blooming and I love it! Such a unique daylily with tall, strong scapes! The eye zone is dark and lovely and you can really see one of it’s parents (tet. Cleopatra) clearly in this kid! IT also is a workhorse! This season in multiplied from about 5 fans to about 8. It’s forming a great clump! Love it!

    I bought my Wild Horses from another source before I found Oakes, so not sure if it’s acceptable to post a review or not. But these are such beautiful flowers, I’m going to take the risk.

    I planted the Wild Horses in spring of 2017. They were not nearly the size and quality of plants that I’ve received since from Oakes, but they lived. I cut off the few scapes they put out that spring because I wanted to give the plants a chance get established. In spring of 2018, I was rewarded with a multitude of scapes, buds and a few flowers….before the deer found them. They pretty well demolished the plants, but they have come back. I’m ready for the deer this year.

    These are big, gorgeous plants and flowers. Mine looked just like the photo here. I have very bad soil in that flower bed, but am hopeful the work I did in it last summer will show up in more blooms….and I have ordered all of my other daylilies from Oakes. The difference in the plants I’ve received from them and the other supplier is like night and day.

    What is your hardiness zone? Zone 8

    It was planted in the flower bed 2 years ago. Many flowers and buds on tall stems it shows each year. This year it has 45 flowers on 6 stems. Flowers in My zone 8 garden are more beautiful and graceful then these pictures. It’s a champion in my daylily garden. Blooms in early spring for more than 3 weeks. Haven’t seen any rebloom yet, but still rank it the highest for the performance it does each year. It’s my favorite daylily always.

    This is a very rich cream with the dark purple throat. There are 18 buds to each stem and 5 stems to each plant. Even though we had a very severe winter, they were one of the first ones to come up. It’s the eye catching bloom for the yard that I was trying to find. The tall stems make it a standout over the others in the yard.
