Take A Second Look

Daylilies may be the most carefree of all flowering perennials.  They grow quickly and are long lived.  Daylilies typically have 22 chromosomes (Diploids).  Tetraploid daylilies have 44 chromosomes, double the normal somatic number for the species.  Plants with more chromosomes tend to have more substance, have larger and thicker leaves and flowers, more intense color and are more vigorous.  Few perennials in the garden are easier to grow than daylilies.  Mostly undemanding, they only require at least six hours of sunlight and a reasonably fertile soil.  Daylilies are known for being tough, they are also amazing with their colorful, big blossoms. 

They bloom from midsummer until early fall, with new blossoms opening each day (Daylilies). They grow from one to four feet tall and rarely have insect pests or diseases.  They will grow for many years without much attention, however; the plants will produce more flowers if they are divided about every four to five years.  Divide in late summer after the plants have finished blooming or as you need to, they are very forgiving.

Daylilies are useful in a perennial flower border or as a backdrop to other plants. They also are a good ground cover on slopes and can form a beautiful, dense mass of color in a few years.  There are several varieties to pick from and the catalog explains the Hemerocallis Daylily choices.  Hardy and easy to care for, these summer-flowering beauties with long leaves and spikes of extremely large flowers, are a graceful garden addition.heart

 What's On Sale...
Apple, Cherry, Plum Tree Sale  

Fruit Tree Summer Sale

Just in time for summer planting.  On sale in our nursery right now we have Apple, Cherry and Plum Trees at 25% to 50% off the regular price.  Add these fruit trees to your existing orchard or you can get started on planting one.  Apple trees require another tree for pollination.  Early bloomers need early or mid-season apple trees as pollinators.  Late bloomers pollinate with late or mid-season bloomers.  Mid-season bloomers can use all apple trees as pollinators.  Cherries are self fertile, but cherry plums require two different varieties to pollinate.  All American plums flowering at the same time will pollinate each other, but Toka or native plums are the best pollinators.  European plums are generally self-fertile, like Mt. Royal.  For additional information you can check the catalog or email, or talk with our staff when you visit.  There is information on fruit tree maintenance in this plant guide.
