We have received from a daylily specialist in Ohio a nice group of named varieties that will be offered for sale on June 23rd at the Watauga County Democratic Party’s huge plant sale. (Get full details here.) These are daylilies that retail at high prices, but we’re able to sell them cheap to our friends and neighbors.
(We’ll also have some unknown daylily cultivars lifted from local gardens. Some are orange, but others are a variety of non-orange colors. NO DITCH LILIES.)
Daylily “Red Ribbons” – Huge, swirling, ribbon-like blooms held on tall scapes make Red Ribbons a real eye-catcher in the garden. Its long, thin petals and sepals make it a perfect example of a “spider” type daylily. Retails at $15 and up. Our price: $3 each.
Daylily “Siloam Double Classic” – Fluffy pink blooms with lots of ruffles. One of our most popular varieties, winner of numerous awards including the Stout Medal, daylily’s highest award. Also very fragrant – winner of the L Ernest Plouf Fragrance Award. An outstanding selection. Retails at $30 each. Our price: $3 each.
