Our Nursery & Display Garden Is Open For The 2022 Season

The Gift Shoppe Will Reopen in Late June.

Early Bloom Season Has Arrived !!!

For those of you unfamiliar with our Nursery, unlike other nurseries and big box stores who purchase wholesale and resell to the public, all our daylilies are grown here, mostly in the field, and thus we are dependent on Mother Nature as to when plants are in bloom.

And the 2022 Bloom Season has started with the arrival of Extra-Early & Early Blooming Daylilies.  So while we have 282 cultivars which fall into those categories, we currently have at least 50 in bloom; but that number will start to increase exponentially in the coming days.

That doesn't mean however that you can't get started on planting your garden of daylilies now.  If you know the cultivar you want, or have been selecting from our Catalog Albums, you can purchase those daylilies now, and enjoy all the bloom they have to offer during the year.

But if you're one that prefers selecting in person, contact us to schedule a visit now to see our selections during "Early Bloom Season", or if you wish to wait until July you can attend one of our "Special Events; however some Early Bloomers will be complete by then.

Keep in mind that we no longer keep regular hours, so if you wish to shop our Nursery, or want to make plans to visit our Display Garden during bloom season, appointments are required.  You can learn more about how to go about that by clicking the links available farther down this page.

All our pre-season orders are complete, but as a reminder we ship throughout the season, until 9/30.  We are getting to that point where the scapes are coming up on many different cultivars, and the sooner we receive an order which requires shipping, the better chance of not having to cut off scapes to fit the box.

We are very excited and have been looking forward to this season; we have 10 new registrations for 2022, and you can view them by clicking the "Our Introductions" link at the top of this page.

Additionally for those who haven't visited us in a while, there is always something new; in this case aside from the enhanced amenities, we are proud of all the new landscaping additions we have made to our gardens for all to enjoy.

Our 2022 Catalog Photo Albums are all posted, and these albums are available on our main Facebook Page. We have added over 150 new images to our photo collection, and you can find those by clicking the link "Catalog Photos A-Z" toward the top of this page.

Because we utilize Facebook to a great degree to interact with our Customers,Visitors and Group Members, it is extremely important that everyone clicks the link above, which will explain coming changes to Facebook, and what you must do,to continue seeing our posts in the future.

Our 2022 Catalog update is almost complete, and we intend to have it available very soon.  In the interim, we are taking orders for shipping or pickup, and our current catalog prices remain in effect until the release of our 2022 edition.  Your purchase is price protected, as you will receive the lower pricing of either the 2021 or of the 2022 catalog; you can always shop with confidence.

Our Gift Shoppe items are available year round, but the reality is accessibility is limited during the off season; we have addressed that problem with the creation of a new Facebook Group Page.

We have changed our former Facebook Group "Friends Who Like Lasting Dreams Daylilies", to "The Gift Shoppe @ Lasting Dreams".  Here we will be able to feature items from our Gift Shoppe year round, and those who are not able to visit, can still have access to products we have available.

          We always have Gift Certificates available year round as well,               and occasionally will have special promotions available to give you even more savings.

The best way to contact us to schedule an appointment is by:                    Email - LastingDreams@verizon.net, or by phone (716) 648-4920.

*************************************************************************************************

We open by appointment, and currently scheduling visitors and customers for the 2022 Season.

In addition to some new and exciting items in the Gift Shop, we've been busy with some tweaks and changes to the Display Garden, so every year we try to make it a fresh experience for customers and guests.  Remember, we are now a 'Private Display Garden', and unless you are attending one of our special events or functions, everyone must schedule a visit to tour the grounds.

We continue to feature items and special sale opportunities through our Facebook Group Page, and here is a link if you wish to join and participate:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/270133113983147/

In all cases where pickup is preferred over shipping, we can offer limited or no contact pickup options, and give you essentially curbside service.  If needed you can always contact us by Phone:  (716) 648-4920, by E-Mail:  LastingDreams@verizon.net, or message us through Facebook. 

If you're looking to shop but don't know where to start, may we suggest viewing our 2022 Catalog Image Albums on our main Facebook Page; it's simply the best way to enjoy the beauty of the daylilies without actually being here.  Make a list of those that catch your eye, and then download our 2021 Catalog posted above; 70 pages packed with information to assist you in narrowing your search; you'll be well prepared for when you visit in person.  And you can access those albums quickly by using the "Catalog Photos A-Z" link at the top of this page as well.

Because of all the changes we're implementing this year, we encourage everyone to click on and review our links above this section, as each one speaks to separate facets of our operation, and if something isn't clearly expressed, just contact us, as it may be something we hadn't considered as yet.

For 2022, we have no special health protocols in place or required, as Garden Visitors are our personal guests on private property.  We trust in the good judgement of each individual to take whatever steps they need personally, so that their visit is a pleasant experience.  The only requirement new from last season, is that entire property is now a smoke free / vaping free environment.

*****************************************************************

Posted at the top is a link to our 2021 Catalog with current pricing, and this replaces all previous versions.  Some insight on our listings; unless specified differently, all prices are for a Blooming Size Double Fan (two individual plants), "DISP" are cultivars which have not increased to a quantity where they are available for sale.  We do not assign a price unless we have a minimum of 5 fans available, and sometimes Display plants have increased to a point where there is enough of that cultivar to sell; although we strive to keep track as the season unfolds, always feel free to contact us in either instance to confirm availability.

We grow a number of Seedling Cultivars from various hybridizers, and these are normally a way to obtain plant genetics for hybridizing, and are one of a kind.  For those available for sale, you will see "ASK", which means that pricing varies and is determined on availability and plant habit, as each one is unique and unavailable elsewhere.

Because of our commitment to providing top quality plants to our customers, even if listed with a price, we reserve the right to hold back for sale any cultivar for any reason.

When bloom season begins, we will announce each season as it starts, and everyone is welcome to visit as often as they wish to enjoy the gardens as they unfold with color throughout the Summer.

Our 2022 Catalog Images are available on our Facebook page, and if you scroll to the top of this page, click on Catalog Images A-Z, you will be directly linked to those albums.  We will have over 2000 images in total, all listed in alphabetical order, and can give you some idea of what you can look forward to when you visit, or help you select a cultivars if you wish to purchase now.

***************************************************************************************************

We are also available year round for presentations to your group or club, with varied daylily centered topics, tailored to fit your group.

Please either call us at (716) 648-4920 or E-mail us at LastingDreams@verizon.net if you are interested in any of the above, or have any additional inquiries.

We wish to thank all our customers, visitors, and Facebook followers who have supported us last year, and many of you for repeated seasons.  Our continuing goal to provide a "Daylily Centric" Display Garden for all to enjoy, with the opportunity for education and acquisition, or to just simply immerse yourself in our collection of living art; this would not be possible without our dedicated shoppers/collectors, and the referrals they provide for us.

We are so excited and are already looking forward this season, as we continue to share in the beauty and the living art of daylilies; providing our visitors, customers, and guests with the largest daylily selection in the Buffalo/Niagara Region for all to enjoy.

What we recommend is that you like and follow us on Facebook, as that is the site where we can communicate with the largest group of people, and we always keep everyone apprised when bloom season begins, and at all seven bloom points during the year...especially Peak Bloom.

Just a reminder for first time visitors, allow sufficient time for your visit.  You can take as long as you wish if you are just viewing the gardens, but if you do wish to place an order keep in mind that it will add some time to your visit.  We normally don't have helpers on regular days, and we usually dig your order while you wait; although it is common for people to order and go grab some lunch, or order for pickup on a different day.     We do however have a good selection of daylilies in pots ready to go out the door if you are pressed for time; we always find a way to work with our customers to meet their situation.

   Watch our event listing both here and on our Facebook page, where we post various activities we think are of interest to our readers, and feel good about recommending. 

Also, if you aren't already, we encourage you to join the Americian Hemerocallis Society (you can find the link farther down this page), and also link up with a local club in your area.  To find one in your area, cut and paste this link in your browser:  (http://www.daylilies.org/AHSreg.html).  Not only do you have the opportunity to expand your knowledge, but it's a great opportunity to share garden experiences with like minded people.

As mentioned above, our Gift Certificates are available for purchase year round, and are available here in paper form, by mail, or by e-mail where you can print it yourself, and make great gifts for that special gardener on holidays, birthdays, or any other occasion.  Also if you are a professional in a field and looking for that perfect gift for a client or associate, a Gift Certificate allows them an opportunity to pick a special daylily which they will always enjoy and associate with you; of course we also can provide a potted daylily for presentation as well.  Our certificates are available in any denomination, never expire, and are good on purchases of items from our Gift Shop as well as plants. 

For the 2021 Garden Season, we plan to have some special opportunities in store for all our visitors, but especially our repeat customers and Facebook followers.  If you want to be one of the first to learn of these opportunities and events, you need to follow us on Facebook, as that will be the primary platform we will use to promote what's happening throughout the year, offering deals not found elsewhere.

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 "2022 Daylily Albums", and you want to view the albums which are titled "2022 Catalog Images", which are in alphabetical order.

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 325 Hybridizers spanning 79 years of dedication and creativity.

You can find our hours posted below, but they can also be found on our Facebook page and Google.  When planning for next season, 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.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             ***************************************************************************************   

*** Our Nursery is open for the season, while our Display Garden & Gift Shoppe will re-open i June.  Both Nursery orders and pickup, as well as Display Garden Tours are normally available by appointment only; we can easily accommodate larger groups with advance notice. We do offer other open garden events throughout the year, for those unable to schedule an appointment; click the "Special Events" tab at the top of the page to learn more about those opportunities.

*** For any questions or to schedule a visit you can call us at (716) 648-4920, or E-mail us at LastingDreams@verizon.net. Because of security issues, we've discontinued use of Meta/Facebook Messenger Service.

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.

   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.
