Additional Information: Oakes Daylilies is a result of a hobby gotten way out of hand. William and Stewart Oakes, father and son, began growing daylilies in the 1960's and were quickly hooked by their ease-of-growth and gorgeous blooms. They added varieties over the years until starting a small mail-order business in 1981 named Paradise Garden. The third generation of Oakes, Stewart's son Ken, joined the business full-time in 1990 and helped to put out the first color catalog. Since then production has grown from the front yard, to the hayfield and now to the river bottom, and we send daylilies all across the country and overseas as well. We have tried to grow our business by providing extra-large, top-quality plants and excellent service, and by offering new and unusual (and reliable) varieties.
