This multicolored red variety of daylily really stands out against a green backdrop! more->
We spent 13 years building an abundant fruit forest, annual veggie beds, perennial medicinal herbs, and a healthy mixed hardwood-coniferous forest and now we've sold our property to the next stewards so that we can begin a new homesteading project in Vermont closer to our best friends and their kids.
Don't worry - we plan to keep this website up and running so that our customers can reference what we've written about our plants!
We'll let you know once we re-start a farm in Vermont!
One thing we love about daylily is that it grows delicious edible flowers! This flowering perennial is really easy to grow - it tolerates some shade and poor soil, although it thrives in sun. It will bloom for at least a month in summer and flowers can be stuffed with dips or something else delicious and eaten raw, or dipped in batter and pan fried. Daylilies, when harvested in a cluster, make good cut flowers as well. Plants spread by tubers slowly over time and occasionally may need to be divided for maximum health. We have ours in a place where deer visit and they have not been eaten, but we cannot guarantee this to be a deer resistant plant.
