Tall Daylilies

We consider those daylilies that are 36 inches or taller to be tall daylilies.  These daylilies offer long tall scapes that will wave gently in the breeze.  Place them towards the back of the border or any where that you want a tall airy look.  The tall daylilies that are listed below are in good supply. We have smaller numbers of many other tall daylilies. 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. 

Abbreviations used, in sequence:

4"  - Flower size

D. - Dormant (foliage goes totally brown in early winter)

Ex.E - Extra early blooming

M.L. - Late midseason

(CL) - 4-5 fans

S.Ev. - Semi-evergreen ( may retain a small portion of green foliage during winter)

E. - Early blooming

H. M. - Honorable Mention
