Olallie Daylily Gardens
We are longtime organic growers who are continuing the work of Dr. George Darrow. We offer a large selection of daylilies that provides a complete pallete of daylily possibilities in an easy-to-use framework. Our approach simplifies your search for the right daylily for your garden. We also supply a wealth of information to educate you the grower as to how best select and grow daylilies.
We grow well over 2500 varieties of daylilies and are breeding new possibilities by the hundreds every year. We select plants based on their hardiness, vigor and performance.
The daylilies blooming season runs from June through September. This map should help guide you through the winding Vermont roads. If you are coming and want to pick up a large order, please call in advance, so we can have it ready when you get here. There are many other daylilies to see which are not available through the catalog.
We also maintain over four hundred high bush blueberries. Pick your own from mid July through August. They're organic and delicious. Visitors are welcome to stroll the fields, pick blueberries, and explore.
The main six-acre field brims with daylilies. Grass paths meander through the beds of flowers. Here, the children run and play with our three Border Collies and visitors can wander. Bring a picnic, there are picnic tables and benches and tables with market umbrellas for your use.
We plant, grow, dig and pack our daylilies by hand so you get fresh, hardy, and quality plants shipped them the same day they were dug. If you're coming to see for yourself, we'll dig them while you wait (even in the rain)!
Our plants are field grown in organic compost-enriched soils. The daylilies are proven hardy in our rugged cold climate, with no protective mulch and no chemical sprays. We give them only water, natural fertilizers, and hand weeding. While originating in Maryland,, our VT daylilies have adapted to the harsh Vermont winter with no protection, making them well suited to most regions.
You can choose from two large sizes of freshly dug, hand rinsed and carefully packed plants. Planting instructions are sent for easy care and cultivation. You'll get the individual attention of a small family farm, because we hope you'll tell your friends about us. Daylilies live virtually forever. So to that end, invest wisely in the future of your garden. Choose northern grown farm raised daylilies with the heritage of Darrow daylilies.
The most amazing field of flowers. Family friendly though you might have to chase the kids through the maze of lily beds and blueberry bushes. That can be exhausting in the August heat! Off the beaten path but worth the trip. Its a celebration of color and plants.
I have alot of daylilies in my garden and this grower is among the best! Go in July just to see the many daylilies in bloom, walk through and see what appeals to you. Absolutely worth a visit - these people know everything about their stock. Highly recommended, easy to get to off I-91. I go every year!
Worth a visit, but be prepared, you will not leave empty-handed. The gardens draw you in and you won't be able to resist. Olallie is a truly lovely place to indulge a daylily passion.
We love the flowers for sale. Just about any veriety of Daylily. I never know there were so many. The organic tall Bush blueberries were so good, they never made it home!
Beautiful flowers and friendly service
