I took a chance and placed a small order with them as I had never heard of them before. They have a nice selection of daylilies with some pretty good prices. What got me to order was finding Patricia Snider Memorial for just $15 for a double fan. That was at the top of my wish list, so I had to order it at that price! Hurray! Just curious if anyone has heard of them?

I have not heard of Park Lane but I am also very excited about PSM Daylily which I planted last fall. I can't wait to see its gorgeous bloom.

I love Park Lane and the owner Kathy Maynard....she is wonderful. I have ordered from her two or three times and she was generous with the bonus plants. As you said the selection is good and the prices are nice as well. Her plants were large with nice root systems. I ordered Adriana Margetts, Pandora's Treasure, Purple Cheetah, and Gavin Petit. She sent Always Afternoon, Ledgewoods Ring of Fire, Tall Dark and Handsome, and Space Coast Gone Bulldoggin as bonus plants. I've spoken with her a few times and she is one of the nicest people in the business. She also sells on the Lily Auction under Park Lane. I highly recommend Kathy Maynard and Park Lane Daylilies.

Thanks Pat. Wow! Sounds like she is very generous with the bonus plants. I was browsing on the Lily auction and saw she has daylilies listed there too right now.

I remember seeing her listings on the Lily Auction. She always has nice cultivars and good prices. I usually do a small order the first time I buy from a nursery but with the good remarks here about Park Lane, I won't hesitate to order more. Thank You!

John, I would also recommend Oak Hill Daylilies....they have a large selection of plants with prices starting as low as $8.00. They ship large healthy plants. The owner is Bonnie Nichols and they are located in Athens, Illinois. Communication with her is superb. I inquired about a couple of plants that was listed sold out on the website and she was able to sell me a few fans. I have an order coming from her this spring. Bonnie is a sweetheart. I highly recommend Oak Hill Daylilies as well.

Bonnie also sells on the LA under Bnich. She is a wonderful person. I visited her and her garden in 2014. Her garden is a beautiful sight to see! Bonnie and her husband are delightful people.
She sends nice healthy plants and has top notch customer service.
Another great source with great prices is Wynn's daylily garden. I have ordered from them for 3 years now and have always been very Happy.

Thank You! I'll check Oakhill out right now. Also check out Homestead Farms Nursery (http://www.homesteadfarms.com/ ). Located in Owensville, MO, they also have very nice plants at reasonable prices and Ron is always quick to respond to any questions. I've been using them for over a year now and have been very happy with all the plants I've received. I also use Oakes Daylilies but they're a little pricier. The plants are always very nice though and they're generous with fans (and always send a bonus plant...have gotten some really nice plants that way and I often end up buying more of the bonus plants. Their larger sizes often produce blooms the first year). I am trying to branch out a little more more this year just for more selection.

I've gotten two really wonderful orders from Bonnie at Oak Hill for the past two years and have ordered a dozen more DL's for this spring. I was thrilled to get CABBAGE BUTTERFLY and COWBOY SCARF among others from her last year, and this time I'm thrilled because I finally found a MEAN GREEN that wasn't already sold out!

@jrbales, I have never heard of Homestead Farms, but I will take a look at their page. Always on the look out for a good daylily deal.

I am new to this and just ordered some daylilies. Does anyone have an opinion on Gilbert H. Wild & Son?

Well, just let me say that my first online order came from Gilbert H. Wild and Son! Why? Because I was new to daylilies, and did not know of many online sources and their advertising on the internet drew me in. I did find a few other sites but the Gilbert H. Wild site had the best selection and of course the best prices of the few sites I was aware of at the time. Let me also state that Gilbert H. Wild does grow and sell tissue culture daylilies (something I was not even aware of )on my first order. Whether or not that is an issue for you will be something you will have to decide on.
However, my first order with Gilbert H. Wild was not my only order, I was quite satisfied with my first order and those plants have done very well in my garden. There are literally thousands of daylily growers who started out with plants ordered from Gilbert H. Wild.
It is true that the plants from Gilbert H. Wild have all been very small plants, and many of them I think are kept in coolers for a length of time before being sold and shipped, but I am not sure that has caused them any harm from the way they have performed in my garden. Being the Gilbert H. Wild order was my first online order I actually did not have much to compare size of the plants with, so they were fine with me.
Now that I have a little more experience with daylilies, I have not placed an order with Gilbert H.Wild this year, why? Mainly because I have found so many other sources on line, and locally. I just love going to the actual daylily farms and gardens of the sellers, looking at the plants and talking with the growers to improve my knowledge of growing the plants. Plus I feel that the plants that are grown locally and have done well in local gardens have proved themselves in my climate. The plants I buy locally avoid the stress of being shipped, and I avoid the cost of shipping. One more point for Gilbert H. Wild is they do keep shipping cost very low.
So in my opinion, Gilbert H. Wild is a good starting point for beginner daylily growers who are anxious to get started growing a few plants and learning more along the way. I would advise you to learn about rust and rust resistant plants before ordering anything, but still at the price point and with the low shipping of the Wild selection of plants you can experiment and find out first hand about rust.

@Barbalee...My experience with Gilbert H Wild was not as positive as Larry's. I ordered a few cultivars from them in 2013...Bold Tiger, Strutters Ball, Putting It Mildly, and Jedi Free Spirit. The cultivars were very very small and dry. I thought they were dead. None of the cultivars bloomed in 2014. Two of the Bold Tiger and one of the Strutters Ball bloomed in 2015. Putting It Mildly and Jedi Free Spirit never bloomed and I'm not sure they are still in the garden. I asked for, and received a credit for the two cultivars that never bloomed. With the credit I ordered Bestseller and Carolina Pansy Face... they sent Rosy Returns as a bonus. Once again, both plants were the smallest I've ever seen and the bonus Rosy Returns was a few dried, dead looking sticks. Bestseller did bloom, but it was the wrong plant...they sent a replacement. I will see if Carolina Pansy Face blooms this spring and Rosy Returns perked up and looks great. I will not order from them again.

I have ordered from Maryotts, Oak Hill Daylilies, Marietta Gardens, Dancing Daylilies, Parklane, Oakes, Wynn's, and the Lily Auction. All sent large, healthy plants and generous bonuses. I highly recommend all of them, and will order from them again.

Welcome aboard and enjoy this daylily ride!
