Happy New Year Everyone! Can you believe we're already halfway through February? I hope everyone's holidays were enjoyable and full of fun. We're excited to start the New Year and can't wait to visit with our daylily friends this Spring.

It's been a very busy off-season for us as demand for our cultivars continues to grow (Pardon the pun). We installed a new deep dug well system for the flowers. We built a 30 x 120 foot greenhouse. Additionally, we've been out in our fields pruning, weeding, fertilizing, etc., taking care of our flowers as we prepare for the Spring. Earlier this week, we were out in our fields and completed a count of what we expect this season. Already, as early as it is, we're seeing our daylilies popping their heads out of the ground. Our flowers have had a great Winter season, and have expanded rapidly, in some cases, more than doubling in number.

Given the increase in many of our varieties during the off-season, we've decided, in celebration of the Spring around the corner, to run a Spring Celebration Sale.

For a limited time, as long as supplies last, or until March 31st, we'll be running a sale to welcome in the new season. Please see a list below of the flowers. Be sure to place your shipment before March 31st as the sale will end at the close of March 31st. We'll begin shipping 2023 orders the first week of April. Many of the flowers listed below normally sale for $20-$30 per double fan. During our sale, all of these flowers will be listed at $15 per double fan. You can call or email Lucille or myself (Scott) with any questions. See a list below of our Spring Celebration Sale items. You can also preview the list on our 'Sale Items' page.

We look forward to visiting with you in the Spring!

**If you have specific questions about how prepare your garden this Spring, please call or email us. Also, if you have questions about specific daylilies, and/or good strategies on how to design your garden, call us. We enjoy talking daylilies and welcome all inquiries.

Our hours every week run 9 am to 4 pm, Thursday through Saturdays, effective April 1st to July 1st. We'll close for the months of July/August, but will reopen for Fall planting September 1st, and remain open through the end of October. If you'd like to visit with us other times, please call ahead, and we'll work something out. We live at our nursery, so can easily accommodate your schedule if you call ahead, even during our off-season days.

If you're coming to visit us, make a day of it, and visit with us and Scott's Barbeque for lunch during the same trip. Scott's is world renowned for their award-winning barbeque. Often when we drive by their establishment, people are lined up out the door.

Additional Good Info to know: Check out our CLEARANCE page, as you'll find many beautiful cultivars at exceptional prices.

Keep in mind that many of our cultivars are Roycroft originals. If you're familiar with Bob Roycroft, and his hybridizing genius, you'll know that he has created cultivars that are exquisite and hardy. Hemingway Nursery is the only nursery to carry Roycroft originals. We've lowered our pricing on many Roycroft daylilies as we've seen our stock grow tremendously over the last couple of years.

We offer our flowers at the nursery in pre-planted established pots. If the flower you want isn't already in pots, we will unearth them and pot them for you to take them home. We also ship flowers ordered from our website. We offer some of the best values for your purchase. Each plant is individually grown in our nursery, and nurtured until they are ready to ship, so that you'll receive healthy large plants for your garden. All of our orders are shipped with a minimum of two fans. We ship our plants in bare-root status within 24 hours of removing them from the ground. We prep our flowers for shipment by manicuring them and soaking them in an herbicide solution to kill any undesired fungus or bacteria. Hence, they arrive in excellent shape for planting. You'll find our flowers to be large and healthy. For online orders, we will not charge your CC until the week of shipment. Additionally, unlike some nurseries, we do not charge an upcharge for using your credit card for your purchase. Our focus is to offer the most beautiful daylilies you can find, at a value that exceeds the cost of your purchase.

Also, we offer a 1-year guarantee on your flowers. If your flowers do not grow as you'd like for any reason, we will ship you a replacement, no questions asked, for up to a year after your purchase.


We have resumed our delivery service. So, if you live within an hour of our nursery, and prefer to order over the phone and have the flowers delivered to your home, just let us know. Our delivery service fee is $25 in addition to the cost of the flowers. The upshot of that is that there's no shipping costs. To keep our delivery cost down, we do ask that you order $50 or more of flowers if you're requesting delivery. To place your order and set up a delivery, you can call Lucille at 919-306-4329. She'll take your order and schedule a delivery for you. If you're uncertain that you're within our delivery zone, just call us, and we'll let you know.

Please call us directly with any questions. Lucille at 919-306-4329, and Scott at 919-306-4230. All online orders will be shipped bare root.

Our Nursery Home is located at: 3954 Hemingway Highway, Hemingway, SC 29554.
