Sun Dragon Daylilies
Welcome to Spring 2022
Sales for the spring 2022 shipping season are now closed. As of March 19th, 2022, I am at capacity for the number of orders I can handle for spring 2022 shipping. I expect to ship again in late summer/early fall of 2022 and will update the website for that shipping period once I have finished shipping the spring 2022 plants and know exactly what will be available for late summer/fall. You can email me if you have any questions on availability. I want to thank everyone who has ordered this year, and I apologize to anyone who is unable to get a spring order. Each year the interest in and demand for my introductions has continued to grow, and I am very grateful!
Because space is at a premium, as my tetraploid breeding program continues to expand I will discontinue carrying older cultivars, both from my own introductions and from other hybridizers. In 2022, I have reduced the number of cultivars I am offering from other hybridizers and I am making the first discontinuations of some of my earliest diploid introductions. I will continue to stop carrying more of my diploid introductions over the next few years as I move deeper and deeper into my tetraploid program. My goal with my diploid introductions is to get them out to other breeders and growers so that the interesting traits such as unique flower traits and/or rust resistance are available to daylily enthusiasts. With my focus on tetraploids and a limited amount of space, many of my diploid introductions will only be in the sale garden for about five years before they are discontinued as a stock item. I will probably still retain a clump, so I may be able to provide a division in some instances, but I can't guarantee that will be the case for every one of my diploid introductions. Discontinued cultivars from my own introductions will be noted as such in the Daylily Availability list.
I have loved daylilies since early childhood. They can be ideal garden plants, wonderful for average homeowners who just want some pretty flowers, young people who want to learn to grow and breed plants and want something easy and forgiving to start with, average gardeners who love flowers, all the way up to advanced hobbyists and collectors who are looking for the most extreme and advanced. However, all daylilies are not created equally, and it is important to know what daylilies are right for your needs.
It is my goal to breed and offer plants that are easy to care for regardless of your skill level, that have great value for breeding projects of any kind and that also offer advances in form and flower as well as in the plant traits.
Feel free to spend time here. This website is designed to be an information resource as well as a place to offer plants I have bred or that I grow and find worth offering. The articles and links section has many articles. The listings of each cultivar from myself and others features a page of pictures and my anecdotal observations for each cultivar. Enjoy!
