Peak Bloom Season Has Arrived !!!

 Follow us on Facebook to keep yourself updated throughout the year.

As we enter week two of Peak Bloom Season, even though we have seen many of these daylilies year after year, we are still blown away by the beauty of the flowers, and in most cases, the fantastic plant habit on many of these cultivars; great branching and bud count.  Only during this limited time of the year, will you be able to enjoy the largest selection of daylilies blooming at any one time.  Except for a smattering of blooms, the Extra Early and Early daylilies are done for the season, but we are expecting re-bloom on many of those cultivars.  Early to Mid-Season, are still continuing, and of course Mid-Season are in full swing.  We can see from the pending scapes and bud formation, that we're going to have a slew of bloom from Mid to Late, Late, and Very Late cultivars.  Come and delight in the rows of beauty these perennials have to offer, and immerse yourself in the tranquility our display garden can provide during your visit.

We still have a few openings left for club and group visits for Peak Bloom, if you still wish to take advantage of this opportunity for this season, call us to reserve your date.

If you want a preview of what's in store when you visit, we have albums posted of daylily images taken here at our garden, and these can be currently found on our Facebook page, and the albums are by alphabetical order.   Just click the "Photo" tab on our Facebook Page, or by clicking this link "2017 Daylily Albums".

If you know what daylily you are looking to acquire, now is a great time to make that purchase as our promotion on catalog pricing will soon expire, as the 2017 Catalog will be posted by this Sunday.

We are featuring over 2000 AHS Registered cultivars for you to enjoy this season, and it is always been our goal to present our visitors in particular, and the community as a whole with a destination garden experience; where we can feature our unique Gallery Of Garden Artistry for all to enjoy.  We are pleased and honored to feature the works of over 280 Hybridizers spanning 76 years of dedication and creativity.

You can find our hours posted below for two weeks out, but they can also be found on our Facebook page, Google, and our phone message.  Remember, we always recommend at least three visits a year: Late May through June for the Early Blooms, July to Mid August for Mid-season Blooms, and Mid August through October for Late Blooms and Rebloom.  We will post as the Bloom Seasons change, and if you are limited to just one visit, don't miss Peak Bloom Season during July; of course you are always welcome to visit as often as you like, and are encouraged to share your experience with a friend.

Just a couple of things to note, part of the reason in our delayed opening was not only to make improvements to the grounds and gardens, but to make repairs on some storm damage from some months back, as a result our gift shop is a little cluttered with boxes and totes; we are working to rectify the situation.

PHOTO  GALLERIES  AVAILABLE

We continue to have our first catalog photo directory available.  These are photos we have taken here in our garden, and are a true representation of how each cultivar will display in our climate zone.  Just click "Catalog Photos" in the header bar to view the current album.

We have added to this first album, and have those new images available on our Facebook Page.  In time we will have an image of everything we grow available for viewing.  If there is a cultivar we have listed in our catalog, but no image as yet, please use AHS Daylily Database, where you will likely find a picture of that daylily.  If by chance it is not posted there, contact us and we will obtain an image for you.

*********************************************************************************************     Our Country Farm Garden is located in Orchard Park, New York,                                                                                               and is adjacent to US Route 219, a Scenic Byway, and easily accessible by major highways.                                              Our five acre property is easy walking for all ages,                                                                                                                              and we can accommodate parking for any type of vehicle from bicycle to bus.                                                                   Groups are welcome with advance notice.

For 2017 we will be featuring over 2000 AHS cultivars and hundreds of seedlings.                                                                We are a NYS licensed and inspected nursery, also featuring a gift shoppe.                                                                                         

   If you have visited us in the past, and still have your catalog marked with your favorites that were only on display, it is likely that your wait is over since we are making hundreds more display plants available for sale.  If you have had your eye on that special daylily, contact us soon so we can make arrangements to hold that plant on "layaway", since on many, quantities will be limited.  The same holds for new customers viewing our current catalog.  If you see any flower marked with a "DISP", contact us as to availability and price, as we may have those cultivars available later in the season.

  As always, we appreciate your patience, as the website is always a work in progress.  And also remember, we love to share our passion and knowledge; please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions.

We apologize if you go to use a link, and find it doesn't take you to the site indicated.  We don't know why these links are no longer active, but feel it has to do with the shoddy web hosting company we currently have.  Very soon we will be changing to a new host, and will have a fully revamped website; we thank you for your patience.
