Welcome to Culver Farm Daylily's 2024 homepage. We grow our daylily seedlings along with many named cultivars at our 135 acre farm located near Waterford, Ontario, Canada. Some of the goals we have at Culver Farm are hybridizing daylilies that are hardy, vigorous and healthy plants for our northern climate. We try to pick out of our hybridizing program daylily flowers that have good clear colour. All the daylilies are grown in field conditions without the aid of any artificial benefits to enhance daylily growth. The freeze thaw cycles we receive during most of our winters weed out the weak and unsuitable daylilies for our climate. Daylilies that will flourish under ordinary garden conditions are a major goal for me.

I offer for your appraisal in this homepage some of the named and selected seedlings from this hybridizing program. As you can see above, our growing fields are open, with no protection from the harsh elements that the farm's zone 5 climatic area receives. If your area receives sufficient snow cover over winter, and that snow cover stays all winter, you mulch heavily, or your garden has its own microclimate, I would think that any of our selections would grow well. We do note on the description pages if we think hardiness might be a problem. However, the vast majority of our introductions are rock-hardy dormants and they should grow successfully in most areas. Shipping will begin when the weather warms up in the late April into the May period of 2024, and continues until the end of August. Sales are for a double fan unless otherwise noted in the description page of each daylily offered. All cheques for purchases are to be made out to Bryan Culver. If for some reason any purchased daylily does not survive the winter after being purchased from us, then Culver Farm will either replace or substitute with another daylily in the same price range. No shipment of daylilies will be made without payment in advance. Orders are for Canadian shipments only and are payable in Canadian funds.
If you have any comments or questions on any of the pictured daylilies please feel free to contact me by either mail, phone or email. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Your comments on any of the pictured daylilies will be greatly appreciated. Again, thanks for visiting, it is very much appreciated.
