Nocturnal Flowering Daylilies

These nocturnal daylily flowers open late in the afternoon and stay open throughout the evening until the morning.  If you spend time in the garden late in the day, these are the perfect daylilies for you.   They will be fresh and beautiful in the late afternoon and evening garden.   The daylilies with nocturnal flowers that are listed below are in good supply. We have smaller numbers of many other nocturnal flowering daylilies. We ship healthy double-fan divisions or clumps (4-5 fans), unless other-wise indicated. Occasionally, low stock varieties and some new introductions will be shipped as single fans. Our guarantee still applies.
