I grow many, many of their daylilies. Some bloom into October.

Here's the shed where they sell them. You order and they dig. There are three border collies there.

There are also companion plants and they sell siberian irises earlier in the season.

I did! I have ordered from them so it's fun to see how the place looks. I like the grass pathway. Thanks for sharing your visit.

That's what I envisioned too, Jules. And I have linked my orchid cubit to here too in my "what else do you grow" forum. I did the same for my beardless iris in the iris cubit. It's all about sharing.
