Our Display Garden & Nursery Are Closed For The Season.

Although our gift shop will be closed as well, we do have gift certificates available year round, and can take pre-orders for 2020.  Our 2019 Catalog will remain in effect until our 2020 Catalog is published, but any orders placed between now and then will receive the lower of 2019 or 2020 pricing. During the off-season we can be contacted at (716) 648-4920, or drop us an E-mail at LastingDreams@verizon.net.

Finally we want to express our thanks to all our customers and visitors, and especially to those who repeatedly visit year over year, and refer us to others; it is the great feedback that we receive from everyone that keeps us going, working to provide a unique and spectacular experience for all to enjoy.  Also not to be forgotten are all those who follow us through social media, specifically Facebook; we appreciate your support and sharing our posts. We have already started preparing for the 2020 Season, and can't wait to share all that we have in the planning; and if you are able, stop by and visit us at Plantasia 2020.

Posted at the top is a link to our 2019 Catalog with current pricing, and this replaces all previous versions.  Some insight on our listings; unless specified differently, all prices are for a Blooming Size Double Fan (two individual plants), "DISP" are cultivars which have not increased to a quantity where they are available for sale.  We do not assign a price unless we have a minimum of 5 fans available, and sometimes Display plants have increased to a point where there is enough of that cultivar to sell; although we strive to keep track as the season unfolds, always feel free to contact us in either instance to confirm availability.

We grow a number of Seedling Cultivars from various hybridizers, and these are normally a way to obtain plant genetics for hybridizing, and are one of a kind.  For those available for sale, you will see "TBD" (To Be Determined), which means that pricing varies and is determined on availability and plant habit, as each one is unique and unavailable elsewhere.

Because of our commitment to providing top quality plants to our customers, even if listed with a price, we reserve the right to hold back for sale any cultivar for any reason.

When bloom season begins, we will announce each season as it starts, and everyone is welcome to visit as often as they wish to enjoy the gardens as they unfold with color throughout the Summer.

Our 2019 Catalog Images are available on our Facebook page, and if you scroll to the top of this page, click on Catalog Images A-Z, you will be directly linked to those albums.  We will have over 1500 images in total, all listed in alphabetical order, and can give you some idea of what you can look forward to when you visit, or help you select a cultivars if you wish to purchase now.

PLANTASIA 2019

Last March we concluded our very first appearance at Plantasia, and it was a fantastic experience.  Not only did we have the opportunity to meet thousands of new people who never knew about us before, we were surrounded with other vendors (most with past experience) who were not just overwhelmingly friendly, but also helpful and supportive of our first time as vendors.

And now we are enjoying meeting many of you a second time, as we have the chance to welcome you to our Display Garden.  The general reaction we're getting is how much more impressive the gardens are in person, as opposed to the still images and slide show we had running at Plantasia.

Of course what can't be properly represented in pictures, is the beauty and magnificence of the actual flowers in full bloom.  While we did show individual images of daylilies, nothing compares to seeing that flower beautifully displayed atop a stately scape surrounded by lush foliage.

And if you haven't had the chance to stop by as yet, we still have a couple more weeks of Peak Season Bloom to go, now as we see 272 more cultivars enter into bloom with the arrival of the "Midseason-Late" daylilies.

To everyone who purchased Daylily Plants from us at Plantasia, we just wanted to remind you that we stand behind the quality of our plants after the sale, and throughout this Season.

If for any reason you have questions or concerns, including the growing and care of your Daylily, just contact us.  We always want our customers happy, and sharing that experience with others...if there is ever a problem, we make it right.

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

We are also available year round for presentations to your group or club, with varied daylily centered topics, tailored to fit your group.

Please either call us at (716) 648-4920 or E-mail us at LastingDreams@verizon.net if you are interested in any of the above, or have any additional inquiries.

We wish to thank all our customers, visitors, and Facebook followers who have supported us last year, and many of you for repeated seasons.  Our continuing goal to provide a "Daylily Centric" Display Garden for all to enjoy, with the opportunity for education and acquisition, or to just simply immerse yourself in our collection of living art; this would not be possible without our dedicated shoppers/collectors, and the referrals they provide for us.

Last June we attended the AHS 2018 National Convention in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.  In addition to the event itself, we also used the trip as a buying opportunity as we had the chance to visit some great hybridizers and visit some beautiful gardens, outside those offered as part of the event itself.

As a result, we just completed re-configuring four of our main display beds, and added to many of our sales beds.  This means that this season's visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy over 500 Daylilies, now out of pots and properly displayed for all to enjoy.  It also means that hundreds of daylilies, previously "Display", are now lined out and will be available for sale in 2019.

We are so excited and are already looking forward to next season, as we continue to share in the beauty and the living art of daylilies; providing our visitors, customers, and guests with the largest daylily selection in the Buffalo/Niagara Region for all to enjoy.

What we recommend is that you like and follow us on Facebook, as that is the site where we can communicate with the largest group of people, and we always keep everyone apprised when bloom season begins, and at all seven bloom points during the year...especially Peak Bloom.

Just a reminder for first time visitors, allow sufficient time for your visit.  You can take as long as you wish if you are just viewing the gardens, but if you do wish to place an order keep in mind that it will add some time to your visit.  We normally don't have helpers on regular days, and we usually dig your order while you wait; although it is common for people to order and go grab some lunch, or order for pickup on a different day.     We do however have a good selection of daylilies in pots ready to go out the door if you are pressed for time; we always find a way to work with our customers to meet their situation.

   Watch our event listing both here and on our Facebook page, where we post various activities we think are of interest to our readers, and feel good about recommending. 

Also, if you aren't already, we encourage you to join the Americian Hemerocallis Society (you can find the link farther down this page), and also link up with a local club in your area.  To find one in your area, cut and paste this link in your browser:  (http://www.daylilies.org/AHSreg.html).  Not only do you have the opportunity to expand your knowledge, but it's a great opportunity to share garden experiences with like minded people.

As mentioned above, our Gift Certificates are available for purchase year round, and are available here in paper form, by mail, or by e-mail where you can print it yourself, and make great gifts for that special gardener on holidays, birthdays, or any other occasion.  Also if you are a professional in a field and looking for that perfect gift for a client or associate, a Gift Certificate allows them an opportunity to pick a special daylily which they will always enjoy and associate with you; of course we also can provide a potted daylily for presentation as well.  Our certificates are available in any denomination, never expire, and are good on purchases of items from our Gift Shop as well as plants. 

For the 2019 Garden Season, we plan to have some special opportunities in store for all our visitors, but especially our repeat customers and Facebook followers.  If you want to be one of the first to learn of these opportunities and events, you need to follow us on Facebook, as that will be the primary platform we will use to promote what's happening throughout the year, offering deals not found elsewhere.

If you want a preview of what's in store when you visit, we have albums posted of daylily images taken here at our garden, and these can be currently found on our Facebook page, and the albums are by alphabetical order.   Just click the "Photo" tab on our Facebook Page, or by clicking this link "2019 Daylily Albums", and you want to view the albums which are titled "2019 Catalog Images", which are in alphabetical order.

We are featuring over 2000 AHS Registered cultivars for you to enjoy this season, and 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.  We are pleased and honored to feature the works of over 325 Hybridizers spanning 78 years of dedication and creativity.

You can find our hours posted below, but they can also be found on our Facebook page and Google.  When planning for next season, 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; of course you are always welcome to visit as often as you like, and are encouraged to share your experience with a friend.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             ***************************************************************************************    *** Our Display Garden & Nursery, Including The Gift Shop, Are Closed For The Season.

*** In the Off Season you can contact us at (716) 648-4920, or E-mail us at LastingDreams@verizon.net.

*** Gift Certificates in any denomination are available year round; Pickup, E-mail delivery, and First Class Mail are all options, and our certificates never expire.

PHOTO  GALLERIES  AVAILABLE

We continue to have our first catalog photo directory available.  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 have added to this first album, and have those new images available on our Facebook Page.  In time we 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.

   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 also remember, we love to share our passion and knowledge; please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions.
