Spider & Spider-Like Daylilies

A Spider is a daylily (Hemerocallis) with long thin segments, having a length to width ratio as high as 5 to 1.

Spider and Spider-like flowering daylilies (Hemerocallis) are always interesting and very lovely additions to your daylily collection. The spiders listed below are in good supply. We have smaller numbers of many other double daylilies and are building stock for future years. 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.
