Here is a photo of my Mother's Day gift from my daughter. A daylily order! I trained her well, I think Rolling on the floor laughing The plants were nice and healthy with a good root system. They show some yellowing because of the shipping time, however, once I put them in the ground on Sunday, they perked right up and are already starting to show some new growth. Daylilies always amaze me that way. These are northern grown plants, and as you can see in the photo, they are showing their new spring growth.
Anyway, I am happy with the plants from Harbour Breezes, and the owner is very friendly and is very good with letting you know when he is shipping and when to expect your plants to arrive.
