Here is a Michigan plant nursery consortium to add to your list of places to shop.

The Iris Warehouse sells iris and daylily plants read to go into the ground and thrive.

You can place your order now and the plants will ship when it’s the right time for your Zone. If you order merchandise worth $100 or more before March 1, you get a 10% discount.

Daylilies begin shipping in early May and iris begin shipping in July. Some rhizome iris ship later in July.

This online seller says they are:

“a select group of vendors/and growers and hybridizers who are considered the top experts in their field. We have specialty growers for tall bearded iris, dwarf & intermediate iris, historic iris, Siberian iris, Japanese iris and special species iris. We have also collected a group of daylily specialist gardeners. The daylily specialists have registered daylilies and currently have developing nurseries which will produce the newest varieties of daylilies which we will make available to our customers!”

Under the category, Discount Daylilies, I fell in love with Daring Deception, a charming tetraploid in a pale lavender/pink and a deep purple at the eye and edge.

What will you buy first? Buying locally grown plants helps our economy and helps ensure the plants will do well in our climate.
