About Us

Sassafras Daylilies is a small, back yard hobby garden. We hybridize for the best tetraploid daylilies; hardy, and colorful. Our ultimate goal is to produce the best bi-colored, re-blooming daylilies available.

Our hybridizing is done in an open garden. In the hot, humid South Carolina weather occasionally the summer temperature will be as high as 105ºF, and with very high humidity. This kind of weather is a set up for a no seed series. The winter climate on the other hand, has a yo-yo effect; the temperature goes from hot to cold many times during the winter. Therefore, we consider our plants to be a very hardy lot. For those familiar with the zone system of weather areas, the garden is located in zone 7B, northern South Carolina.

Sassafras is a state inspected garden. And, we love visitors, but due to travel scheduling, we can be away from the garden occasionally. So, please call or e-mail prior to visiting; make sure the garden is attended and we can visit with you. We do look forward to visiting with everyone.

If you purchase daylilies from us and are not satisfied with the order, just return them with the original labels attached for a full refund. Mark your calendars, as our peak bloom season is the first two weeks of June, but we have re-bloom until frost. On a personal note; I do not text.

Just a reminder: All plants are Tetraploids.

Thank you for visiting our site, we look forward to hearing from you!
