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" ...
