About Northern Light Daylilies

Northern Light Daylilies sells fancy daylilies on the internet. They sell on the website NorthernLightsDaylilies.com, October through April, and then ship throughout the United States in May. Northern Light Daylilies is open to the public in West Concord only once a year during the Survival Days weekend in July which will be July 21-23, 2017.
Mike and Kathleen spread pollen and hybridize their own daylilies. They cross pollinate in May, June, and July. They collect their seeds in September and October. They plant their seeds in the greenhouse during the winter, and transplant the seeds outside to the seedling fields in June and July. They plant 10,000 seedlings each year - 5000 of Mike’s seedings and 5000 of Kathleen’s seedlings. During the bloom season, they evaluate the flowers in the fields. They select about 100 to 120 of the 5000 each year. These are called Selected Seedlings and are moved to a special bed and evaluated for three to five years for quality of bloom, plant habit, vigor, and disease resistance. Of these 100, only about 10 are chosen to be named and registered with the American Daylily Society. They are then offered for sale on the website.
