About Us

Official ADS Daylily Display Garden

ADS Official Daylily Display Garden filled with modern hybrid daylilies.

Great Expectations Daylilies is the name of our garden and is an official ADS Display Garden.  Growing daylilies is our hobby!  We also hybridize modern hybrid daylilies and are always happy to share our knowledge. Our garden is at our private residence and is not a commercial garden. Please contact us in advance to arrange a visit to the garden.

Although daylilies begin blooming in NE Ohio gardens at the end of June and continue to bloom and rebloom through September, peak time in our area is typically the second or third week in July.

We are current members of the American Daylily Society (ADS) and the Ohio Daylily Society (ODS).  Great Expectations is located about 30 minutes East of Curt Hanson's Crintonic Gardens. 

For more information about the Display Garden inquire through our CONTACT FORM.
