ABOUT US

In our daylily (daylily) garden, you can see and buy the varieties of world-famous daylily breeders such as T.Petit, P. Stamilie, J. Kinnebrew, the pioneer of the daylily garden, V. Bangiers, as well as the newly selected daylily varieties. Both in the garden and on the website, we only offer seedlings grown by us, thus ensuring high plant quality and confidence that buyers will receive the best seedlings suitable for Latvia's climatic conditions. In total, you can see and buy more than 1000 different varieties of daylilies in our garden!
The daylilies grown by us can mostly be found directly in Latvia - in private gardens, as well as in urban gardens and parks, for example in Ventspils, Ogre, Liktendarza and elsewhere. But in general, our flowers can be found almost all over Europe - in Lithuania, Estonia, Poland, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, France, Spain, Finland, Sweden, Norway and other countries!

The garden is freely accessible to visitors, during the flowering of daylilies, in July and August, every day from 9-19. Since 2002, our garden has been a favorite excursion destination not only for flower lovers or individual travelers, but also for tourist groups. During the season, approximately 1500-2000 people visit our garden. The largest number of visitors in one day was at the 2007 Flower Friends meeting, where ~ 700 people from all over Latvia visited the garden in one day.
Prices for a seedling range from 2 EUR to 160 EUR. It is possible to buy sets of seedlings at favorable prices! On the other hand, in the garden, we also offer to buy daylily bushes at special prices, which are beneficial for flower lovers who want to enjoy full bloom next year or who need a large number of plants.
Seedling trade permit - our grown seedlings are included in the State Plant Protection Service Register (Register No. 3205109, certificate of registration).

Short daylily (Hemerocallis)
cultural characteristics

Our grandmothers already knew wild daylily or daylily species, but the hybrids obtained as a result of breeding have acquired many characteristics that wild species do not have. Modern varieties have relatively large flowers of various shapes and colors (up to 20-30 cm in diameter), folded, toothed and bubbled edges of petals of various colors, patterns of various shapes and colors on the petals. For example, there are flowers with 8 petals (usually 6), there are filled and half-filled flowers and the edges of the petals with gold and diamond glitter. Flowers come in almost every color of the rainbow! Until now, it has not been possible to breed blue and snow-white flowers in the world!

Seedlings are well suited to growing conditions in Latvia, they tolerate frost and snow well, they do not need to be covered. However, you have to be careful with varieties that are imported from warmer countries, because not all of them are suitable for Latvian conditions! There are varieties that bloom magnificently in the USA, for example, but in Latvia the flower may bloom in completely different colors, or the number of flowers, even the shape of the flowers may differ.

Daylily plants are not particularly demanding on soil, but they do need sun (the more the better)!

Although a daylily flower only blooms for one day, on average, an inflorescence can have from 10-50 buds on one flower stalk, but a bush can have many flower stalks, so the number of flowers blooming at the same time is high in an older bush, and it can bloom continuously even 1-2 months. Certain varieties bloom even twice a year, such as Shelton Hollyday, Alternative Universes, Song writer, etc.

Daylilies are the perfect flower for today's busy person's garden, as none of the decorative perennials are as undemanding in terms of soil, care, site selection and climate. They are also not significantly damaged by pests and are not threatened by diseases. These flowers can grow in one place for 1o or more years.

Visitors to our daylily garden, when they visit the garden in July and August, are usually very surprised by the variety and dizzying beauty of daylily flowers. Seeing this "beauty" in the garden, there is no one who is indifferent!

A few tips for growing marigolds:

1. Daylilies are a sun-loving plant, so we try to plant them in a sunny place.

2. Dayflowers need a dry place.

3. Seedlings need to be planted not too deep - up to the root tip. It is best to try to plant at the same depth as they grew.

4. since the dayflowers will form a bush as they grow, it is necessary to reserve enough space for them (the recommended distance between the dayflowers is 50cm)

5. Dayflowers are undemanding to the soil, but poor soils need to be improved, and in the spring it is recommended to enrich the soil with complex mineral fertilizers with a low nitrogen content.

You can read more about the cultivation of daylilies and agrotechnics in the book DIENLILIJAS and Lauku Avize Thematic Newspaper - DIENZIEDES, published by Zvaigzne ABC in 2009, written by daylily breeder Varis Bangieris.
