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.
