Daredevil Daylilies is located on Rte. 78 in Burt, New York, less than a mile from Lake Ontario. It's zone 6 with summer temps rarely above 90 degrees, winter rarely below zero but with all too many below freezing days. Proximity to the lake means it's often quite windy. All of the daylilies are field grown and all have been grown for at least 4 years without mulch. A few, however, have later shown improved performance with a bit of mulch and are so indicated. Phil Fass has trialed my earliest, iffier intros in his why-would-anyone-want-to-live-there-in-winter brutal zone 4 Iowa garden and I've included his reports.
The garden is licensed, state inspected and has never had daylily rust.
The garden is open to visitors by appointment only. A quick phone call (after dark please) to let me know you'll be coming will assure that I won't be doing anything too embarrassing when you arrive. Peak bloom is mid July, peak seedling bloom 2 weeks earlier.
Please click on the thumbnails for larger images, descriptions and prices. Shipment is by USPS priority mail to US addresses only, $9.00 for the first and $1.00 for each additional plant.
