Early Blooming Daylilies


At Tranquil Lake Nursery, quite a number of daylilies bloom in mid to late June, before the bulk of our daylilies begin to bloom in the first few weeks in July.   These early blooming varieties will add color and interest to your early summer garden. The early blooming daylilies listed below are in good supply. We have smaller numbers of many other early blooming flowers.We ship healthy double-fan divisions or clumps (4-5 fans), unless other-wise indicated. Occasionally, low stock varieties and some new introductions will be shipped as single fans. Our guarantee still applies.
