Here is the background story:

Last month I wanted to buy a special birthday gift for a special friend who has everything he needs, except for daylily Jurassic Pink.

I wrote to Michele because she has sold it on LA, but she wrote back that she did not have any. I wrote to James Hall, but no answer. I wrote to Abundantdaylily, but no answer.

I looked up Floyd Cove, and found that they had it. I called, a nice woman answered, and I told her about wanting to buy Jurassic Pink for my friend's July birthday. She told me that they stopped shipping over a month ago, but would see what she could do. She understood my need to have this special daylily. I ordered one for my friend and one for me. Less than a week later, the package arrived with the beautiful fans of Jurassic Pink and a gift plant, Guy's Grand Illusion. I was elated with such a gift! The gift cost a lot more than my entire order!

Thank you, generous lady. You are awesome. I will order more next season.

Gerry - Wow! Kuddos to Floyd Cove! I love to hear stories like this about a daylily nursery. Thank you for sharing. Sounds like a great place to get daylilies!

Sounds like a wonderful experience! The lady you ordered from was probably Karen Pierce... I know she sometimes has great prices on some special plants that they are looking to move to make room (I have seen her list some on one of the FB daylily sale groups). I bought Fried Green Tomatoes from her (Floyd Cove) last weekend via that FB group and the order arrived on Friday - nice plant and a great gift of one of their 2015 introductions, Venetian Pools. I don't know how expensive it is, but the two pictures of it I found online are beautiful. I looked at the pictures in the catalog that was included with my order - they have some spectacular looking introductions!

What a nice experience! Floyd Cove's previous owners were great to deal with too.

Hey Gerry, how are your chilies doing? Mine are off to a slow start. I'm battling aphids like crazy.

The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

Charley, my peppers are doing fine, and I already used a Serrano from one plant.
I want to send you a daylily, and I want to make sure you are going to be home at arrival. If you are going to be home next week ,I will put something in the mail this Saturday. Let me know.

Seems like they have their customer service down pat Smiling . I ordered from Floyd Cove for the first time this spring, and I will happily order from them again. They sent huge fans with awesome roots, plus two bonuses that I have absolutely loved!

I purchased Breakfast With Santa, Colorful Etchings, & Cosmic Kaleidoscope from them; I received Jolly Good Yellow and Malibu Barbie as my bonuses Smiling

Check out my review on the green pages for pictures...

More evidence that daylily people are the best! So glad they were able to help you with your gift to your friend.
