Heirloom/Vintage Daylilies

avonlady(4 MN)April 29, 2009

I am wondering if there is a way to find vendors with older variety daylilies from, for example, the 1930's through the 1960's. I may have asked this question a year or two ago and can't find it (sorry). I didn't have much luck googling the topic. Would you recommend contacting the AHS or some larger vendors who might know someone?

Maybe there are some smaller vendors who specialize in older varieties, but don't advertise much or maybe many of these varieties are simply not available anymore.

As always, your feedback is welcomed and appreciated.

Valley of the Daylilies has a pretty good selection of historic Daylilies (Pre 1970)

There are others. Just can't think of them right now. If I remember them I'll post.

John Ware in VA and Linda Sue Barnes in NC grow large selection of heirloom/ and or species daylilies. Their names should be listed on the Available Sources List on the AHS website. If you can't find it, please let me know privately and I'll send you their e-mails.
