Gift ‘Name-A-Daylily’ offer: Rainbow Hill Daylily Farm is now offering the opportunity for customer named ‘Gift Daylilies.’ Select one of our unnamed hybrid daylily seedlings for personal gift giving occasions such as: Mother’s Day, Anniversaries, Valentines Day, Christmas, or any special occasion for a loved one. Similar to our ‘Memorial Daylily’ offer (see the link on Main page), this special occasion gift offer allows customers to select a daylily seedling of their choice with rights to naming with purchase. Once a seedling is selected, we will begin the registration process and provide all necessary plant habit data to AHS for the official registration approval needed. Registration process usually takes about 2-4 weeks.
Feel free to ask us for suggestions and ideas for naming a distinctive daylily for that special someone that says, “I Love You.” This offer allows all considerations, as with our Memorial Daylily offering, including: total plant increase and all American Hemerocallis Society (AHS) paperwork/documentation (for the approved daylily registration).
Hybridizing for quality and distinctive daylilies: Every season, at Rainbow Hill Daylily Farm, we hybridize with some of the newest and most cutting-edge daylilies on the market. Hybridizing for new daylilies involves a substantial investment for the serious hybridizer. Most of our newest hybridizing breeding stock ranges in cost from $150 to $500/single flower. Thus, the cost and overall investment for creating a single new hybrid seedling involves costs ranging from about $300 to over $1,000 in breeding stock to produce quality daylilies. A good hybridizing program also requires countless hours of early morning ventures into the gardens, each season, for hybridizing and documentation of present/past hybridizing efforts.
Only select quality daylily seedlings, with good healthy plant habit, are offered and named for AHS registration. Check out our “Seedlings Area” within our website for examples of daylily seedlings available for Gift ‘Name-A-Daylily’ registration. You may also stop out and visit our nursery during OPEN GARDEN visitation (see open hours for more info) to witness at a distance over a thousand new hybrid seedlings and some blooming for the first time ever!
Like snowflakes, each new daylily hybrid seedling is unique and like no other in the world. For those who are unfamiliar with daylilies and how they grow: daylilies are perennial flowers that increase in number (usually doubling or tripling each year) and bloom each summer filling the summer months with color, fragrance & happiness lasting for generations.
Total cost for the Gift ‘Name-A-Daylily’ offer: including daylily registration, plant increase and documentation, is $777.00 (plus Indiana sales tax for Indiana residents and shipping costs).
