Selling Some Ditch Lilies

April 11th, 2008

Perennial LettuceI’ve previously blogged about ditch lilies here, and now I’ve got quite a few extras and am selling them on ebay for cheap.

Ditch lilies, also called tiger lilies, or common orange daylilies, are a species form of daylily. Hemerocallis fulva. Each plant has pleasing lighter green grass like foliage and 3 foot high flower spikes that flower in early summer to late spring. These plants spread very quickly using underground runners (unlike normal daylilies). They are tank-hardy, they will take anything. Which is why as I explained in my previous blog post I am using them to fill up the space between the sidewalk and the road.

I would not recommend planting these in among other perennials as they can take over, but if you have a defined space you want to fill, ditch lilies are a great (and cheap) choice. You can also just always plant them in ditches or in the middle of your lawn and then keep them in bounds with a mower, no edging needed.

    I was amused by the term “ditch lily” but really, those lilies are very lovely.

    Was the bed covered by leaves and other garden debris? I have often had lettuce live through the winter if it was covered with leaves

    Hello – Do you have any ditch lilies for sale this season? The only ones I can find online are $1.77 per plant which seems a little high.

  4. Administrator  Says:

    NO I do not, but wait a few weeks. Many people don’t sell them until they divide them in Spring, which’ll be April/Mayish probably.
