I just wanted to share the positive experience I had yesterday visiting O'Bannon Springs Daylilies in Nashport, OH. http://www.obannonspringsdaylilies.com/index.html

Steve's website says you get clumps if you visit the garden and he was not kidding!

These were $7 clumps!

Sure looks like you had a good time! This is where that gorgeous coral red UF, Discover the Stars, is from...my want list just got longer, added Blind Squirrel to the list, too Smiling Checked out the seedling pages, some wonderful cute little spideries coming along. Always admired Pat Cochenour's little ones, but they would be sold out before I realized she had updated her site.Thanks for posting about them. Thumbs up

Yes, I have ordered from O'Bannon's and am very pleased with their selection and prices. All of the plants have done well, and the fans are generous, not skimpy.

My friend and I purchased O'Bannon Orchid to split and each have several fans. I also wanted to buy Adavier but in the end, he gave me that one as a gift Hurray!

Char,

He had a beautiful clump of Discover the Stars but some how I got distracted by all the blooms and forgot to get a picture.

For those that do not know this Daylily, here it is blooming in my yard.

Steve has bought many seeds from me so of course I had to go to his website to see if any of the crosses I made were now his intros. Sad Sad no, not one.

Cindy,

He has a huge seedling area that he is still working with so maybe there is something still in the works?

I met them last year and found them to be very nice people! I wanted to go out to their garden this year, but have not made it yet. I need to do that!

Thank you Lisa. I was all eyes. Discover the Stars is lovely but a dormant.

What a wonderful older thread. Wished I lived close enough to visit.

To see rolling hills of daylilies would probably bring tears to my eyes. What a gorgeous place! I hope your experience is as good this time as it was 2 years ago. Do take some more photos to share. I live vicariously through you and others here that have such a wonderful opportunity to visit these daylily gardens/farms.
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters, compared to what lies within us.

Hmmm. Thinking "road trip!" but other priorities this week. I do know the area from fishing the Muskingum river. Noticed some interesting 1940/50's varieties.

Thanks for the lead! I tip my hat to you.

Beautiful, lovely, especially O'Bannon Orchid and Discover The Stars--the wish list that stretches to the moon just got longer nodding
