About Us

Official ADS Daylily Display Garden


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).

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

Daylily Plant Sales


We keep our display garden looking fresh by adding new daylily varieties, creating new seedlings, and reducing our extra plants by dividing and offering plant divisions to daylily enthusiasts at our plant sales.

These unique plants are hardy in NE Ohio and are currently not offered at  local retail locations. Our diversity makes us your #1 source for recently released locally grown healthy daylilies at very reasonable prices!

 At our sales, quantities of each cultivar are limited and sold on a first come first serve basis.  Cash and checks are accepted for payment. 

Daylilies In The Garden


As our plants grow and increase we are happy to offer some plants for sale to garden visitors.  Please contact us for information on price and availability.  We typically to not ship plants outside of our area. 

We currently grow over  900 different daylilies and have lots of seedings on display.
