Ordering & Shipping Details


We ship hostas and daylilies. We ship US Postal Service Priority Mail; shipping only on Mondays and Tuesdays allowing plants to arrive before the weekend. Shipping costs are $10 for the first 5 plants and .50 for each additional plant.


We take orders all year for hostas, but only ship from mid-April through October 10th.

When you order by phone or online you receive the same one gallon hosta that customers shopping here at the nursery pick up. We take them out of their one gallon pot, wrap the roots in plastic wrap, and ship them bareroot.



Daylily orders can be placed in any of the following ways:

  1. Most of our customers come and walk through our field during bloom season (generally the first three weeks in July), pick out the varieties they like, and place their orders here.
  2. Online ordering. Not all of our varieties are available online due to limited quantities. You may check availability by contacting us by phone or email.
  3. We also take orders by phone or fax.

We take orders from February 1 through August 31. Customers can elect to come back and pick up their orders on a certain date, or have us mail the orders to them. We only dig orders between April 10 through May 15, and August 1 through September 10.


Each spring we dig and pot up around 40 of our best selling varieties. These can be purchased at our nursery and planted at any time during the growing season.


More and more customers are electing to buy their daylilies in clumps. We don't dig our bareroot orders during the bloom season because we don't want to divide clumps (and disturb the bloom) at that time. However, if you want the whole clump, we will dig it right there on the spot, drop it in a plastic bag, and send you on your way with a mature clump. Prices vary (generally between $15.00 and $50.00) depending on the variety and the number of divisions in the clump. Clump daylilies are not offered through online ordering, but they can be shipped. Call or email to check for availability and prices of any certain variety. Shipping is $12.00 per clump.
