Don't buy those daylilies from a catalog!!
I recommend going to Cottage Gardens Daylily Farm in Medina. I've been going there for a few years now. They have huge FIELDS of daylilies, all nicely labeled, where you can actually SEE what you are getting. When buying, the owner gives you a couple of big, healthy fans on the spot - no waiting, no skimpy, sickly, dried up rhizomes. The best part is running between all the daylilies comparing them to find your absolute favorites. Get your favorite red amongst the 100 or so reds on offer. I did, and I always get comments on "what a beautiful red daylily".
I've been disappointed in the past when ordering from catalogs and when the plant finally blooms it is not the color they showed on their glossy pages. This is especially true as most catalogs lie about their "purples". Come see in person what they really look like.
Their website says:
"Cottage Gardens of Medina, new York, which is located in western New York, midway between Buffalo and Rochester. We are an official American Hemerocallis Society Display Garden and a commercial garden. . . .
We enjoy visitors during the bloom season (usually mid July through August. We are open Wednesdays through Saturdays 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sundays 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Other times can be arranged by phoning or emailing us."
Here is a link to a (bad) photo showing some of their fields visible from the road.
PS - I am NOT affiliated with them in any way, but it is a great day out to visit a farm with so many beautiful daylilies all in one place.
