Hello Everyone,

Happy Labor Day weekend! Amazing that the Summer is over. It's flown by. If you subscribe to our newsletter, you received a copy last week, and are now aware that we're undergoing a transformational change. Every season since we've been in operation we've observed that by seasons-end we begin to run out of daylily varieties that are in high demand. This season is no different. Given that, we've decided to winnow the # of varieties we carry from around 700 to something under 300. To accomplish that, we have decided to cut in half the prices of the varieties we'll be discontinuing. Take a look at our Clearance Items Page for all of these varieties.

We've already begun the labor of expanding our remaining varieties, as we've expanded our fields and begun to line out more flowers. Additionally, this move allows us to add to our varieties as we have begun this season introducing our own hybridized flowers.

We're excited by this decision and are tickled to be able to offer many gorgeous flowers at ridiculously low prices. We recommend that if you see something you're interested in that you place your order asap, as once the clearance stock is gone, we'll not be replacing them.

Speaking of our new introductions, take a look at those for 2023; Carolina Gem, Hemingway Pink Lady, and Sal's Purple Gold. Next season promises to be even more exciting, as we have many beautiful seedlings we've hybridized, but are watching them to confirm good growing habits before registering.

Visiting Us

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.

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.


Put this on your calendars now, we'll be presenting many of our flowers at the Pee Dee Farmers Market Fall Plant and Flower Festival on September 29, 30, and Oct 1st. Last year we had a great time there, and enjoyed meeting with many of you. This year promises to be ever more fun, and we hope to see you again and meet new friends as well. We'll offer about 20 of our best growing varieties at the show for your consideration. Whether you plan to add to your collection or now, please stop by and say hello. We love talking about daylilies!

As many of you are aware, we live at our nursery, so if you'd like to visit with us at a time outside of our scheduled hours, just call-in advance. We're happy to accommodate if we're around. Also, our website is always open for purchases, and we ship anytime you'd like us to between April 1st and Oct 31st.

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.

**If you have specific questions about how to care for your daylilies, 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 Nursery Home is located at: 3954 Hemingway Highway, Hemingway, SC 29554.

NURSERY VISITORS-- Our container-grown daylilies are well established in pots and, unlike bare root plants, can be planted anytime that the ground isn't frozen in your garden. We cannot ship container-grown flowers through mail orders. All mail order flowers are shipped bare root.

For online orders we will not charge your credit card until the week we ship.

Easiest method of ordering over web site's shopping cart: Our web site's shopping cart shows thumbnail photos of every daylily that one puts in it. Put everything that you like in the cart, review details by clicking on name or photo shown in cart, remove cultivars from cart until you arrive at the # you wish to purchase, and then place your order online. If you do not wish to order at one sitting just log out and then log back in whenever you are ready to resume. Everything that you left in your cart when you logged out will still be there.

Refund Policy: If you are displeased with the results of your purchases for any reason, let us know. We'll replace for up to a year after your purchase with the same or similar plants (if originals are out of stock).

Terms and Conditions: Payment in full is required before your order is shipped.

This week's featured cultivar:

New for 2023! One of our first registrations. Bob Roycroft provided consultation on this hybrid gem (pardon the pun). We owe a lot to Bob, and you can see that he left his mark in this flower. This is a very light cream to near-white fragrant flower with a bold grape eye, a double edge, and yellow throat. The wide inner edge is also a bold grape; the outer edge is a silver-gold picotee with some teeth and knobs. Up to 4-way branching; 16 buds. This flower holds up well in the sun. Fertile both ways. This is a child of 'Cinderella's Dance.'

Hemingway Nursery Gift Certificates make wonderful gifts for special occasions. Our gift certificates are available for any amount you desire! You can call us to place your gift certificate orders at 919-306-4230, or purchase through our website. All you have to do is click on the 'Additional Offerings' icon on the right. The rest is self-explanatory. The recipient will repeatedly remember you every time their daylilies bloom!

Thank you for considering our 2023 DAYLILY ONLINE WEB SITE for your daylily needs. It is comprised of major awards and honors winners plus other cultivars which we and our customers like. We only list cultivars that re-bloom for us here in lower zone 8.
