I’ve said it before, but I just have to say it again. I’m discovering that plants from bulbs have the most spectacular blooms. I guess this is becoming more apparent to me as I have more time to explore places like Amador Flower Farm, where the daylily reigns supreme. Although I think irises are my favorite bulbs, daylilies are right up there at the top of my list of flowers. Did you know that there are more than 35,000 daylily cultivars? Amador Flower Farm daylilies are stunning. With over 1200 of the most popular varieties available, you are sure to find something you love.
Daylilies are said to be very easy to grow. They come in a variety of colors, shapes, sizes and bloom cycles, so you can have flowers all season long. They are easy to plant, drought tolerant, relatively pest-free and deer resistant, except perhaps in some places in the fall when there is nothing else to eat. They are just about the perfect perennial.Daylilies are easy to grow and are just about the perfect perennial. Click To Tweet
A Sampling of Amador Flower Farm Daylilies
In June, Amador Flower Farm celebrates Daylily Days with a sale and vendors. It is the beginning of the blooming season but Amador Flower Farm daylilies are available year round. They ship bare root plants or you can buy plants in pots at the farm.
Cat Owners Beware!
As beautiful as these flowers are to look at, if you share your home with a cat, they are not a good plant for you. The toxic agent in the plant has not yet been identified like it has been in the iris, but just a few bites of any part of the plant has shown to be toxic to a cat’s kidneys. If your dogs like to eat plants, don’t worry. Daylilies, unlike irises which are toxic to all animals, are not toxic to dogs.
Amador Flower Farm
Amador Flower Farm is located in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley near Plymouth, CA, where it is surrounded by wineries and vineyards. The 14-acre farm has growing grounds, a potted plant area, and four acres of landscaped demonstration gardens. You can bring a picnic lunch, search for garden treasures in the gift shop and even go on a tram ride around the grounds.
