Shipping-- We normally ship domestically via priority mail which arrives in 2-3 days. We usually ship
on Mon,Tues, Wed or Sat. The objective is not to have a plant arrive on the weekend so it might sit in
the PO until Monday. Shipping on Sat. is fine since the mail does move on weekends. Shipping is
$15.00 for one-three plants. Add $1 for each additional plant after three.
International shipping.--IN RECENT YEARS WE WERE DECLARED A PEST FREE ZONE IN
ACCORDANCE WITH THE EU REQUIREMENTS FOR XYLELLA FASTIDOSA AND WERE
APPROVED TO SHIP TO THE EU AND JAPAN. REPRESENTATIVES OF THE EU VISITED
SEVERAL NURSERIES IN THE USA IN FALL 2018 AND HAVE REVOKED MY APPROVAL
FOR REASONS THAT DO NOT MAKE A LOT OF SENSE TO ME. I APOLOGIZE FOR THE
We will ship to any country as long as their are no special requirements. We charge $25 for a
phytosanitary inspection.. It is a bit of a hassle to do the necessary paperwork and we require a $250
min order internationally. It is your responsibility to ascertain what the requirements are for your
country. Payment in US funds only for international orders-check, money order (made out to Richard
Howard), or PayPal (preferred). International priority mail to Europe may take a week to ten
days--sometimes longer . WE WILL NOT GUARANTEE ANY PLANTS SENT OUT OF THE
COUNTRY VIA PRIORITY MAIL WE WILL NORMALLY ASK FOR ESTIMATED
SHIPPING TO BE PAID PRIOR TO SHIPPING. International Priority Mail is about one-third the
price of DHL or UPS, but tracking info is limited.
We will ship via any means you wish. We have found that cutting back the foliage significantly,and
trimming the roots seems to work best for global shipping but will pack them any way you wish.
We have shipped to the following countries: Canada, France, Norway,Sweden,United Kingdom,South
Korea, Latvia, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland,The Netherlands, Lithuania, Poland, Russia,Pakistan,
China and Japan. Howeevr, as noted above we can no longer ship to Europe. Likewise for Korea.
PLEASE DO NOT ASK US TO FORWARD PLANTS FROM ANOTHER GROWER IN THE USA
TO YOU. WE DO NOT DO ANY SO-CALLED THIRD PARTY SHIPPING.

Additional order info
Your e-mail and our acknowledgement are the written record of your order. We will sometimes send
you back an excel file for larger orders. All are double fans (two plants-may or not be attached) unless
noted single (S) or clumps (3 fans min). I have tried to use the year of introduction instead of the year
of registration because I feel this has more meaning for most buyers. The AHS database uses the year
of registration so you will see differences in the listings accordingly.

Size is a sensitive topic among many daylily collectors—me included.In addition to other factors
(including light, water and nutrition) daylilies need to reach a certain threshold size to bloom. It is
important to realize that for different daylilies this threshold size varies. Many spiders and UFO’s
naturally make smaller plants. Likewise for many of the small diploid rebloomers like Stella De Oro.
We believe that the plants we send are comparable in size and quality to most we have received.
Having said that, we are not perfect. Recent summers have had extreme heat and little rain at times and
some plants we sent out were smaller than usual. If you ever are unhappy with a plant we send you
for any reason please let us know and we will do whatever it takes to make it right.
I have included some images of scapes that I thought exhibited good plant habits-branching,bud
count,etc. Most of what I grow is in pots which can limit the branching etc. So you could expect better
performance than what I have.
If our image does not always match the description exactly, please don't be too surprised. Plants can
look different in different gardens due to pH or other variances. If you lived in Florida instead of Maine
you might look different too!
I apologize for any errors on these pages. Please let us know of any you find.I am not a professional
web designer by any stretch of the imagination and suspect I may have a few typos and mistakes on
"I just had to write to tell you how well the plants you sent are doing. They never missed
a beat, never sulked or dwindled as so often happens with plants from the deep south.
One already has a second fan. They took off growing as well or better than any plants I
can recall."-Fran Harding, Forestlake Gardens,Virginia
"Plant arrived today (Monday) in SUPERB condition. You need to give me an education on how
to properly grow Daylilies."-Bob Carr,Ocala,FL
"These are the best looking flowers we have received this whole year and we have received a lot
of them!!!! The roots were still moist and the top had not yellowed at all. This is how I hope
my flowers arrive looking but I know, as I said from experience, that most folks do not go to
this much trouble. We really appreciate it"
"The plants you sent me this year did the best of all that came in. They established quickly, and
all look great going into winter."-Greg Bogard,NC

Quality of the plants is excellent.I very much appreciate the extra's you have added."-Gerrit
"..the plants I received from you last season did very well. Everything grew like gangbusters"--
Rex Beissel, Maine
"Daylilies that I got from you this spring are doing great. All have bloomed and are just as big
as the ones i got from Florida this spring...You have great plants and seeds too. I always look at
what you have for sale. I work too hard to waste money on bad plants or seeds."--David Carter,
Landscapers and Mass Plantings-I'm sorry but we are no longer offering
seedling clumps for sale.
