Since I visited Wild's a couple of summers ago, I thought I'd throw in 
my two cents' worth. I was there on a weekend during daylily bloom 
season and there was no staff around to help, even though there were 
many people there to view the daylilies. The daylily display beds were 
extensive and all of us visitors were writing down names as fast as we 

I saw no growing fields that day, though I was told later that the 
fields were only a short distance further down the road.

I also was told (can't remember who so consider it hearsay) that the 
business had been bought out from the original owners and had gone 
downhill since. I personally think that the latest Wild daylily releases 
are way behind the curve compared to the big, beautiful pie crust, 
edged, etc. stuff now coming out. However, since I can't afford new 
daylilies, Wild's is a tremendous source for cheaper daylilies. I have 
bought several batches from them for the last couple of years and have 
received good stock with 100% survivability.

I bought a hosta special from them also - very cheap, and all correctly 
labelled and all survived.

I would not buy irises from them, though. There are better prices around 
for that. Irises are not their specialty, that's for sure.

daffodils and iris reticulata blooming away!)
