Late Bloom Season Coming To A Close

Late Bloom season continues, and with it is a beautiful selection of re-blooms of earlier varieties. On any given day, it is not unusual to see anywhere from 50 to 100 cultivars in some state of bloom; so all are welcome to view and appreciate these last blooms of the year.  If you are looking for that flower that will give you a pop of color when your guests come over for that late summer/fall cookout, then these late bloom varieties are the way to go.  Our gardens will close at the end of September, so there are only a number of days left to select and purchase for planting this season.  We recommend that you have your planting completed by the end of the month, as this will afford time to have your plants well rooted before winter hits.  It is also a good idea to mulch your fall planting, just to give it that extra protection against frost heave. Even though our catalog lists bloom seasons, the best indicator is to come by, walk through the gardens, and see for yourself what's blooming, and what's catching your eye.  Additionally, we have an extensive database of images of those varieties which are done for the season.  This is a perfect time to fill that open spot in your garden with that special daylily to greet you upon next Spring's arrival.

Follow us on Facebook to keep yourself updated as the season continues.

 This year we are growing over 1700 AHS Registered Cultivars, with more than 100 new cultivars on display for 2015, and 100 display plants from 2014 now available for purchase.  This presents our visitors with well over 1150 cultivars from which to choose this year, plus we have hundreds of seedlings from our own program, as well as a good number from other select hybridizers.

Also this year we are adding many new amenities to enhance your visit, and hope to have everything in place before Peak Bloom Season.  It is always been our goal to present our visitors in particular, and the community as a whole with a destination garden experience; where we can feature our unique Gallery Of Garden Artistry for all to enjoy.

That's not to say that we are not eager to see everyone become collectors of these living works of art, but we know that once you walk the garden and traverse the beds, they will call out to you in their own way.  To appeal to everyone's budget, we offer a range of daylilies at various pricing, starting at $10 and up.  In addition, every customer will receive a bonus daylily for every $50 in sales; plus we will be offering other promotions throughout the season.

Again for this year, we will post our weekly hours below, but they can also be found on our Facebook page, Google, and our phone message.  As always, we are available for personal appointments because we want to give everyone the ability to fit a visit into their work schedule.  Remember, we always recommend at least three visits a year: Late May through June for the Early Blooms, July to Mid August for Mid-season Blooms, and Mid August through October for Late Blooms and Rebloom.  We will post as the Bloom Seasons change, and if you are limited to just one visit, don't miss Peak Bloom Season during July.



We are currently scheduling 2015/2016/2017 speaking engagements for Garden Clubs and other groups.  We can either come to your venue, we can host you here in the gardens, or a combination of both.  We offer a varied selection of program which can accommodate the need of your organization; contact us for details, openings are limited and can fill quickly.



If you are an amateur or professional photographer or artist, we offer an excellent venue for landscapes, still life subjects, portrait scenes, and macro photography.  You are welcome to stroll our gardens during regular hours, or call us if you have a special circumstance which requires a different time.



We are pleased to post our first catalog photo directory containing 323 images.  These are photos we have taken here in our garden, and are a true representation of how each cultivar will display in our climate zone.  Just click "Catalog Photos" in the header bar to view the current album.

We will be adding to this gallery on a regular basis, and in the future will have an image of everything we grow available for viewing.  If there is a cultivar we have listed in our catalog, but no image as yet, please use AHS Daylily Database, where you will likely find a picture of that daylily.  If by chance it is not posted there, contact us and we will obtain an image for you.




Here at Lasting Dreams we certainly have an appreciation for all flowers, but a passion for daylilies.  If you share that passion, or just want to learn more, consider joining the American Hemerocallis Society.

Although the basic AHS website is available to everyone, membership brings you access to member portals, events, and a beautiful series of color publications:  all for only $25 per year.

The FREE part...when you join you will receive a voucher valued at $25, which can be redeemed at any AHS listed grower, of which we are one. To learn more click  AHS MEMBERSHIP.

Our Nursery And Gardens Are Still Open

From now till the end of October, we will be open by appointment only.  Just give us a call or drop us an e-mail, and we will work out a mutually good time for your visit.


Just a reminder!!!

If you attended the Lewiston Garden Fest, Lockport in Bloom, or the Buzz Around Hamburg Garden Walk, BRING YOUR BROCHURES on your next visit as we have special offers just for you!
Just a reminder that these offers expire at the end of 2015


  Our Country Farm Garden is located in Orchard Park, New York, and is adjacent to US Route 219, a Scenic Byway, and easily accessible by major highways.  Our six acre property is easy walking for all ages, and we can accommodate parking for any type of vehicle from bicycle to bus.  Groups are welcome with advance notice.
For 2015 we will be featuring nearly 1700 AHS cultivars and hundreds of seedlings. We are a NYS licensed and inspected nursery, also featuring a gift shoppe. For 2015 we also have our own naturally homegrown produce available on site, available in season.

    If you have visited us in the past, and still have your catalog marked with your favorites that were only on display, it is likely that your wait is over since we are making hundreds more display plants available for sale.  If you have had your eye on that special daylily, contact us soon so we can make arrangements to hold that plant on "layaway", since on many, quantities will be limited.  The same holds for new customers viewing our current catalog.  If you see any flower marked with a "DISP", contact us as to availability and price, as we may have those cultivars available later in the season.

  As always, we appreciate your patience, as the website is always a work in progress, and we are working to convert from a static site, to an interactive catalog and order system.  And also remember, we love to share our passion and knowledge; please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions.
