This is our third year we will be open for sales. While only 11 of our cultivars have been registered and have propagated enough to allow us to sell them, we have over 6000 seedlings in our gardens.
About 1,000 of our Daylilies are for sale this year.
Our Daylilies are Yellow, Red, Purple, White, Gold, Orange, and many many combinations of those colors. I have been aiming for large flowers and we have some 8 inches in diameter. Others are only 3 or 4 inches in diameter. Some are round, some are like spiders, and there are many different shapes. Some are short - about 12 inches high, and many are 3 feet to 4 feet tall.
Non registered Daylilies are available for $20 each, 2 or more for $15 each, and in clumps at $40 per clump or $30 each for two or more clumps.
A Clump is a group of 3 to 10 plants
Registered daylilies cost more and are listed in our "Introductions" pages
Non registered daylilies are excellent plants, but not ones we plan to keep for future hybridizing. Of the 6,000 in bloom, about 4,000 are NOT for sale as we are still evaluating them for future registrations.

John & Paula's Gardens is in Lowbanks, between Dunnville and Port Colborne, on the north shore of Lake Erie. From Toronto and Mississauga, follow the QEW to Vineland, go south on #24 to #3 to North Shore Drive, go west about 3 miles. We are about 5 houses east of Hutchinson Road.

We have been hybridizing daylilies since 1995. Many of our seedlings are 4th or 5th generation from our lines. We have been crossing older varieties with newer ones, aiming for large, bright colored flowers that are hardy in Ontario. In 2007 we moved all of our plants from three gardens to our Lowbanks property, and we have about 1/2 acre of our seedlings growing there. We are expanding from a hobby to becoming a business. We were excited in the summer of 2008 having registered and being able to sell some of our prize plants that year. But with Paula's death in October 2008, our 2009 season was minimal and only one plant named in honor of Paula was registered that year. We are planning to register many more in 2010 / 2011 and plan to be providing unique Ontario Hybrids for many years to come.

We do not use pesticides or fertilizer and rarely water the gardens. We do not mulch plants for the winter. If the plant does not survive under these conditions, I really do not want it. We try to avoid anything that takes time or effort. Many bought plants do very poorly in our gardens, yet ours do very well. So if you care for the plants, you are likely to get larger flowers and more buds than we do.

Due to the climate here, many of our plants propagate slowly. We have been trying to use tissue culture to speed up how quickly we can sell our plants. At present, we have some of the registered plants for sale as tissue culture, at lower cost than normal propagation divisions. In future we will probably continue to work on tissue culture for some plants, but not all. Our philosophy is that tissue culture used to help produce small limited numbers of daylilies is useful for northern hybridizers, and properly controlled will not lead to destroying the market for our plants. We will not do more than 100 for any plant - and will only do plants for the original hybridizer.
