Amazing daylily company. Most of my daylilies have come from them. An example, my last order was for two BOGOs and two regular daylilies. I was also expecting their free summer special daylily worth $30, although there is a $65 free special right now that is beautiful, and because they state they deliver no less then a double fan I figured there would be at least 14 fans total. Instead I had 42 counting all the extra bonus lilies they sent!!!(that is counting the little fans too). I was so excited. They sent me two of their special $30 daylilies too. This was my second order from them this year. Some of the first daylilies I received already have flowers. The shipping seemed a little high to me, but when I got my order it had the price of shipping right on the box so I know I wasn't overcharged. I had a couple of questions also, and they got back to me right away. I would recommend them for anyone who wants large healthy daylily plants delivered right to their door. The first picture is only a week after I got that plant. I hadn't even had time to take the tag and dead leaves off (and weed or mulch yet, as you can obviously see in my new flower bed. lol) and I already had a bud. That wasnt the largest of all the plants I received either. The second picture is of my first daylily of the year. I removed most of the buds just so the plants can get established but saved a couple on the really large sets of fans - thanks to Maryott's, I am enjoying my flowerbed already.

Positive experience: This was my first time ordering and I am very pleased. I did a little unofficial test on seeds from three sources and Southern Exposure Seed Exchange won hands down. Fast germination, good percentage, and strong, healthy plants. I also like their paper catalog; it had a 'homey' feel to it. I will definitely order again.

Wonderful plants at good prices. My daylily order was received in early-mid May as requested. The plants quickly grew new leaves & all but one plant out of five has scapes less than two months after planting. Nice bonus fans & plants. There was a mix up with my order & Chuck did a FANTASTIC job making it right! Great communication through email too. Highly recommended.
