Glenda Mae's Daylily Farm
On Father's Day we decided to take a day trip to East Texas for the day. After stops at Big Chicken Daylily Farm, Echo Spring Blueberry Farm and a quick lunch we made our last stop to Glenda Mae's Daylily Farm.
Glenda Mae's is owned by Joey and Glenda Dziema and is located in Murchison, TX. They grow over 400 named cultivars on the property. You can visit their farm and buy directly from the field (both potted or dug for you that day) or over the internet and have them shipped directly to you.
While the majority of their plants are lined out in beds, they also have a lot of beautiful garden areas for their customers to enjoy. In fact they became an AHS Display garden this year.
They have also started to hybridize daylilies. They don't have any registered cultivars at this time, but I can't wait to see what they eventually create. During the off season, Joey creates lots of artwork for the garden.. Here are a few of his creations.
This was our third visit to Glenda Mae's, so we have purchased a lot if the cultivars they carry that we are interested in, but we did see one plant that caught our eye. I love dark daylilies, but unfortunately, they tend to fade during the day and are prone to water spots. Imagine my delight at seeing a beautiful, crisp looking dark daylily in the afternoon. 'Jungle Beauty' was our one purchase at Glenda Mae's that day.
If you are even in the area (or are looking for some daylilies on the internet) this a great stop. The owners are friendly and the gardens are beautiful. While distance doesn't allow us to visit anytime we want, we will definitely be back (maybe on our next blueberry picking trip).
