Featured Flowers

 Hybridized here in Vermont, the cultivars featured on this page are all hardy, strong growers and perform well. The farther south they go the earlier they will bloom. 

All these daylilies bloom late June or Early July, just around the time that Stella D'oro blooms. The goal has been to develop a range of colors, and patterns to make the early part of the daylily season more interesting.
