|HERE is a Super Favorite of both Jim and I! John Benz introduced him to the daylily world in 1995 as "Bright Velvet." He is a tetraploid daylily with a glowingly bright Holiday Red self, plus a lively, light green throat. He reaches 28" tall, and he has 5" blossoms that start appearing in mid-July, and he blossoms for a full four to six weeks.|
Here in East Central Illinois, he's fully dormant in winter. And he's generously floriferous, totally hardy, and has GREAT color-fastness, even on our Hottest and Most Humid afternoons: for certain, a SUPER addition to any garden!!
And ... best of all, this Gorgeous Guy can be yours for just $10!! Beauty and The Bargain, all in one, ehhh??? Just call me at 217.621.8474, to reserve your "Velvet"! What fun!!!
Here come the HOLIDAYS, once again!! How very exciting, indeed. And there's no better remembrance than a Gift Certificate for Flowers - and Especially lovely daylilies!
Just go to www.5acrefarmdaylilies - and you can SHOP 24/7/365 On Line - in the Comfort of your own home. Just browse our WebSite to make your shopping list, and place your order on line -- or -- give me a call, at 621-8474, and I'll be glad to assist you in what ever way I can, to put together a lovely Holiday Gift Card.
ALL the plants survived our late-season, nine-week drought most heartily: certainly, nothing died - in fact, nearly all our plants sent up new growth, before the coming of the snow. Many of the gardens STILL need to be cleaned up ... but, since there's only some many hours in a day ... especially when it gets dark at 5pm each day - they just may have to wait for Spring Cleaning, next year.
So ... we are surely looking forward to a GREAT Season 2014 - Jimmy and I are thinking about cutting back on several dozen of the varieties that we offer - so, there may be some Great Deals coming up in the Not So Distant future on select plants.
And ... if you belong to a "Green Group," whose members would enjoy having an Educational Daylily Program presented at one of your group meeting, we'd love to help you out: call me at 621-8474! These sorts of Get-Togethers are always so very enjoyable for EVERYone involved: we've found that most gardeners do just LOVE to learn, and to talk about gardens!
OKAY - Happiest of Holidays 2013 to you - and please take great care -
- and Happy Gardening to you, ALWAYS!
Rod and Jim
