  • Daylilies blooming at the end of September Chris Darrow Sep 29, 2016

    Well we've had some frosts, the Pumpkin and Squash plants are done. But amazingly there are plenty of daylilies still blooming. These will keep going into October, though cold nights will slow opening of the flowers. Once we get there hard killing frost, that will pretty much finish the last of the daylilies.

 June at Olallie Daylily Garden is Iris Time

This year there will not be a specific iris sale weekend. Changes in the seasons (climate change?) has made a peak iris bloom unpredictable.
Additionally we are short on a number of Iris but have small numbers of quite a number of unusual Siberians. Check our facebook page for some of the newer varieties and keep checking for notification of any Iris sales.

 

 

 

June is Iris time! June is Iris time!


Here Jasper digs a typical saleable piece for a customer.

Early June is a great time to visit Olallie Daylily Gardens. The Siberian Iris is in full bloom and most of our early daylilies are out too. An excellent time to transplant, people often pick up an iris or two and some daylilies for later in the season.

Peak Season at Olallie Daylily Gardens
Peak season, typically from mid July through mid August is a magical time. Tens of thousands of blooms appear each day. It is worth the trip to see the diverse spectrum of daylily cultivars, colors and types. There is plenty of room to stroll the gardens and plenty of seats to sit and enjoy the view. Many people plan an afternoon and bring a lunch.
