Too Good To Be True

Wouldn’t it be neat to have a blue tinted lily like this? Or 1000 rainbow roses? Or seeds for this green daylily? The previous flowers are all fake or scam items for sale online, the sellers have put up images that don’t reflect reality. Economics of a $1.00 packet of seed.. In Canada costs will start at $2.00 for postage and packaging materials to mail seeds that are protected in a bubble mailer, let alone the value of the seed. Consider the $1.00 blue lily seed with free shipping, 475 sold, all fake. Putting that money towards quality legit seeds or a vanilla latte at Basket-Full may be a better option. Plant breeders are working towards advancements like blue and multicolored. It takes time. There are daylilies that have blueish purple in them. There are lilies that have more than one color on a petal, just not like that photoshopped…

2018

This year we are only selling our introductions. After a too wet summer in 2016, which led to disease and then a cold winter in 2016-2017 which saw most of the commercial daylilies die out, it was easy to make that decision. Of note one daylily, Notify Ground Crew handled the disease and cold like a champ. As well its hundreds of babies are alive and thriving while thousands of seedlings and hundreds of cultivars around them died. We have our first introduction in 2018 out of Notify Ground Crew. The nice and tall KC ON A HILL! On the much shorter side is the drought resistant NEXT YEAR COUNTRY appropriately named for farmers!
