FRIENDS and VISITORS,
We are thrilled to be able to show you our 2017 Spring Introductions for the Lily Farm. We are excited to show you the progress we are making in our lines. We have our first double introduction, "HIGH SCHOOL CHEERLEADER", and a bevy of other beauties ranging from small (DELIGHTFUL LITTLE PERFECTION) to HUGE (DONNIE BARNES), and of course some amazing patterned dips such as "LILY FARM BERRY PARFAIT". These are the most limited introductions we have ever offered at the farm, with no more than 20 of anything available to the public. So don't miss out!!
Be sure to visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/thelilyfarm. We always try and put tutorials on daylilies up on that page as well as pictures of anything new and exciting from the seedling fields!
To say we have some new things for you to see next year would be a HUGE understatement! In the picture above are over 500 new, recently released cultivars from hybridizers like Trimmer, Lambertson, Stamile, Grace, DeVito, Bell, Kinnebrew, Petit and many others that we purchased this fall! It will be a SPECIAL, SPECIAL bloom season in 2017 to be sure!! Come see over 1,000 named cultivars and over 75,000 seedlings, all of which are available for purchase to the public. In addition to that, our perennial nursery was well received locally, and we are adding fruit trees to it this coming spring! So the Lily Farm is expanding in many directions, all through the blessing of God above.
I close by saying this, and I mean this with all my heart and soul. "THANK YOU" to our loyal, loyal customers. You are unwavering in your support of what we are doing here at the Lily Farm, and without your support, we would not have made it to this point. That is simply a fact. Your support has allowed us to try and venture out into new avenues to be able to keep our farm going, and by doing so, we are able to continue to discover new advancements in the flower that we all hold so near and dear to our heart, the daylily. We truly LOVE all of you, and are looking forward to the opportunity to add more friends to our operation here in Center, Texas. We have been blessed here more than we could ever deserve!
