I purchased several daylilies from Maryott's in summer of 2016, none of which returned in spring 2017. By that time, Maryott daylilies were being sold by Schreiner's.
There are Green Pages review for Schreiner's, but all were iris purchases. I placed a small order to replace a few of my dead daylilies, but I'm wondering now if that may have been a mistake.

Has anyone had good luck with Schreiner's daylilies?

If you knew that Schreiner's was Maryott's daylilies, why did you buy them?

I think Schreiners has a good reputation with iris and probably will do as well with daylilies. But still, they are Maryotts daylilies, which may not be as good for northern areas. I have a few good plants from Maryotts, but generally they do well for a year or 2, then decline til they disappear. Usually great plants foe more southerly areas I think.

I don't have anything against Maryott's daylilies, I wanted to re-purchase them because they were beautiful and I very much liked them; now I know that I should protect them better over the winter. But my first purchase was from Maryott's, whom I can no longer order from, and this most recent purchase is from Schreiner's.

I'm not wondering so much about the quality of the plants as the service of the company. It's been a week since I ordered, and aside from my order confirmation I haven't heard anything from them, and on the website my order status still states, "In Process".

Maybe I'm just spoiled by sellers with great communication and faster shipping. Smiling

Yes, I have ordered three times from them. Only had a problem once with the first shipment, but no fault of Schreiner's as it was an error made by the postal service (box was placed on wrong truck and shipment was delayed). The gals in the office are very nice to deal with and plants I have received have done well here. Fans were great and generous bonus plants included. Schreiner's is further north of myself and a little colder there. They certainly will not be offering plants that only do well in the South as they are growing them in the North! Some varieties Maryott's carried just may not be offered by Schreiner's if they don't thrive well with cold. I get snow in the winter at my place and cold freezing rains at times. My daylilies from Schreiner's have done quite well. In fact, I received "Strikingly Dramatic" the middle of May and it's already putting up a scape!! So my experience with them has been positive and I am one happy customer.

Thanks so much for letting me know! Have you considered posting a review to the Green Pages?

Because sometimes purchasing daylilies grown in another area make them take off and do well when you plant them. So when I ordered from him they didn't do well. But they were coming from CA. But if I order the same daylily from a northern grower to begin with, they do better for me at adjusting here after I plant them. Does that make sense?

My recent day lily order took over a week to get filled. Kept saying in process. I guess I was in a hurry also.

Were you happy with it? How were the plants?

I am resurrecting this old thread as I just purchased a couple daylilies from them during their Spring sale. Now I'm wondering if I should have gotten 2 of each. The rest of my Daylily beds consists of what was originally 2 double fans each, but I thought I had heard that Schreiners DLs are so big you can divide them. Does anyone have more recent experience with them, and can speak to the size plants they send? Thanks!

I haven't ever ordered daylilies from Schreiners but they carry a lot of Maryott daylilies and I have ordered from them before. Maryott always sent nice large fans but typically only a double fan. I'm not sure if Schreiners sends more fans or not but I'd expect the same large fans.

However, if they haven't already shipped your plants you might want to order a second double fan of any Maryott daylilies (if you bought any). I haven't had a lot of luck with them in our zone. They often survive a year or two but if we have a bad winter/spring they often die. I do think that I have a better chance of them surviving if I start out with a clump (4+ fans). Prickly Sensation had a rocky start but I got it as a BOGO and now it seems completely hardy and happy in my garden. I'm going to have to divide it soon and will be happy to send you some fans! Hanalei Bay and Griffin Miller were double fans and have struggled. But they seem to have adapted and added fans the last year or two. Shiraz and Doubly Hot are both down to single fans and I honestly should send them to a warmer climate because one bad year will kill them off.

Now you made me look at Schreiners sale. I love Maryott daylilies. Just wish they did better for me. I just might have to buy 1 or 2 though. Whistling

I just received my first order from them yesterday. A double fan of Trembler and a triple fan of Deep Impact, dip. I had received the Tet form from another vender. The fans were small compared to those you might receive from Southern growers but were in good shape.

Thank you both! I will order an extra plant of each (Stenciled Infusion and Gasping for Breath, neither one are Marryotts).

I have bought from Schreiners and some plants are going on 2 years old. They weren't massive fans like Maryott. Some are really struggling. Some are ok. I lost a few the first winter and they did replace 2 of them, although if you could see how pitiful Orange Dynamite looks, you'd ask me why I have it even taking up space. So many of what were 2 fans are only 1 fan now.

And like BXNCBX, I have had had Maryott plants now for 6 years. So many of them are still 1-2 fans. My Griffin Miller is now 3 fans and will bloom for the 2nd time in 6 years. Prickly Sensation has done better, but this year there is not a single fan on either of my clumps. Billy the Kid is about 3-4 fans. Outer Space is 1 sole fan. I just love those flowers, but the plants are not happy here.
