Welcome Vanessa. I'm not sure who to suggest for species but you could try Linda Sue Barnes at the Perennial Patch in North Carolina. She certainly used to be a source for the species. Contact info is near the bottom of this American Hemerocallis Society Region 15 page:

Another possibility is to ask on the Daylily Species discussion email list on Yahoogroups:

Gil Stelter in Canada lists a number of species daylilies. They would need a phytosanitary certificate to get across the border but it may not be as expensive as shipping from the US to Canada, at least it didn't used to be. Gil's species on offer are listed here:

Edited to add another possibility, Pat and Dick Henley in Ohio. Their price list isn't up to date but their web site is:

You could also try Dr. Joe Halinar. His website does not appear to be up-to-date but is at:

His daylily species page is:

Sue & Pattyw5,

Thanks for the information. I will check them out.

Maurice, thanks for the links too. I tried to contact Dr. Joe Halinar. His email doesn't work and I did some checking. It seems he is retired and doesn't run that website anymore. I wish he does as his price is very good compared to some places sell daylily species.

Happy holidays to all of you!

Dr. Halinar is now teaching at the University of Wisconsin, the last I heard. My guess is he keeps his website up to provide continuing use of his information about genetics, etc. I purchased many lilium seeds from him when he was selling them.
