Welcome to Erikson’s Daylily Gardens and Perennials

 
 

MAY 2018


The nursery is now open for the season five days a week (unless otherwise noted) Wednesday to Sunday until late July!  We have an even bigger collection of new daylilies, lilies and hostas available this year, so we look forward to greeting our many visitors!


Stay tuned to this page (which will be updated periodically), but please check out our Facebook page for daily updates on new plants and events!


UPDATE:  YES, WE ARE OPEN MOTHER’S DAY WITH SOME WONDERFUL GIFT IDEAS!


************************************************************



Our annual Open House last year was a big success and it was so wonderful to see so many people come and enjoy the garden!  The date for this years event has been set for Saturday and Sunday, July 14th and 15th, 10 am to 4 pm each day.  Much more information on this annual event will follow later this spring, but mark your calendars now because you won’t want to miss it!


We would also like to thank our generous contributors who provided the prizes for the draw last year (the list of those people and businesses are also listed on our Specials page - please give them your support as well as they truly are all so community minded!)  We always keep their names up until the following open house - especially since so many of our contributors help us out every year and we are indebted to them.

Our daylily and hosta collections are continually growing - and our current count is over 3,000 varieties of daylilies and 600 varieties of hosta - and who knows what it will be by the end of 2018! We also have more of our own new daylily introductions that we will post later - very excited about them!


Also this year, we will again have a wide selection of high-end containers available at the beginning of the 2018 season.  These pots are from Vietnam, but are double glazed.  We have two containers that we purchased from the same company fifteen years ago, and they are still sitting on our back deck having shown no winter damage at all!  We will have plenty of colors and styles available! 


In addition, we have expanded our line of quality cast iron garden ornaments and will have some truly amazing wood turned pieces later in the year!  Stay tuned for those!


IMPORTANT NOTE:  For those shopping at the nursery, please note that we accept cash, cheques and can now take Visa and Mastercard for purchases over $50.00.  Thank you.

PLEASE NOTE - When visiting our gardens at bloom time, it is very important to remember that is a private hybridizing garden - this means that our main focus is on cross pollinating and creating new varieties.  To this end, it is imperative that no blooms be touched, deadheaded or sniffed in the garden!  I know it’s hard for gardeners not to do that - but it really does destroy a years worth of work if someone moves a stem to take a picture and a crossed bloom falls off.   We also apologize, but we are not equipped to allow wheelchairs, strollers or walkers into the garden.  This is for both the preservation of our hybridizing program and for your own safety as the pathways are very narrow, uneven and have sharp edges that wheels can easily go over and fall.
