|I went to the Leila Arboretum and Garden (Battle Creek, MI) yesterday. They have a collection of some 200 or so daylilies located in the Children's Garden. Interesting display.
After I returned home, I was digging into their website and discovered that they are offering divisions of some of the collection ( they must be thinning it out) for sale at $7.50 for a two fan plant.
Are any of these rare or collectible?

|That is awesome! I am new at this so I can't answer your question, but I requested availability on a few. Thanks for the link!|

|I have no idea about rarity but I inquired about a couple of daylilies I really liked. I need to check my local botanical garden to see if they ever sell daylilies. They have some awfully big clumps!|

|I've only checked in the ATP database on the cultivars on the first couple of pages (names starting with the letter "A" or "B") but what I see is a nice selection of vintage cultivars that, though they are generally able to be found and are made available through regular daylily nurseries, would represent a great way to support the Arboretum by purchasing through them.
I especially like the color on "Brave One" ...
