I have ordered a lot of DL's from them but now it looks like they are only selling their own (Steve Williams') Introductions? Is this so?

I was really surprised to see such a short price list!

Well, this is disheartening. When I typed in O'Bannon Springs, one listing states that he will no longer be selling DLS from other hybridizers. I was planning to place an order for fall, and it's not going to happen. Another excellent seller "gone" except if one wants just his flowers.

This is strange. When I clicked on this post the first time, it didn't show. So I redid it and now I have two posts, saying virtually the same thing. Char, please remove one. Thank You.

I am sad too! He had such an extensive list of good quality DL's at a good price. Must be getting to be too big of a job for him. I know the feeling.

Bummer! But, on the bright side, if he is concentrating on hybridizing, there will be some amazing intro's in the future! Wise move.

And, having said that, I just placed an order for Too Cute and End Of The Tunnel. Been wanting them since I saw pictures. Smiling

Odd, I just placed and received an order from O'Bannon's a few weeks ago. I'm glad I ordered in time!

"As of June 2018, due to increasing age and decreasing energy, we will no longer be selling daylilies online from other hybridizers, but we will continue to sell and ship our own introductions via Priority Mail."

Perhaps that means that other hybridizers will still be available on-site?
