Welcome to the 2013 gardening season. As a Michigan licensed and inspected grower of perennial plant material, I specialize in daylily and hosta cultivars. I am excited about my 2013 Daylily Introductions now being available. All but one is a reliable northern rebloomer as are most of my previous introductions.
My daylily hybridizing objective is to create very hardy, robust, and northern reblooming tetraploid daylilies with large flowers of great color, substance, and form displayed as a minimum of 20 buds per well-branched scape. I strive for overall plant performance to ensure a beautiful garden presence as well as valuable hybridizing genetics.
I work extensively with my own unique daylily seedlings developed over 17 years of hybridizing. Those who follow my work or have heard me speak about my program know that high bud counts, excellent branching, plus rebloom are major hallmarks of my efforts. Since my introductions are registered with northern grown statistics, I would expect increased performance in warmer zones. Seedlings that I decide to part with are available as bareroot plants. Visit the seedling page often during the growing season to see what is available. I also sell on the Lily Auction under the alias Isis. (A daylily seedling is a full-sized regular daylily plant that has been grown from a seed which was intentionally created through selective breeding but has not been formally named through the introduction process with the American Hemerocallis Society.)
While I ship bareroot daylilies by United States Priority Mail Service within the continental United States, the remaining perennials are primarily sold to local mid-West Michigan zone 5 gardeners. Most plants will be freshly dug as bareroot material from my established landscaping. But many perennials, including daylilies, are potted and ready to be transplanted by local patrons into your garden as an established plant. Customers are assured excellent value as I offer top quality plants at reasonable prices. If there is something special growing in my garden that you would like to put on a wish list, please let me know. You will be the first to be notified when that plant is to be divided in the future.
Operating on a first come, first served basis, early shopping is encouraged to avoid disappointment. A photo gallery of the daylilies, hosta, and other perennials is available to aid in your selections. Since the majority of the hosta and other perennials for sale are divisions of plants which are part of my yard’s landscape, I encourage you to stroll along my garden paths for ideas and to see how your choices will mature in your own garden. Your visits are welcome, but please contact me in advance to arrange for a mutually convenient appointment time. Peak daylily blooming season is from late June through July.
