Greetings Fellow Gardeners!
Welcome to our "Hobby Gone Wild"!!! Thank you for your interest in our garden. If you’re a new guest, Welcome!! and if you’re a returning friend, Welcome Back!!
We were honored in 2015 to be one of eight gardens in Atlanta on the 2015 American Hemerocallis Society National Convention Tour. We hosted more than 600+ guests from almost all 50 states and several foreign countries. We'll also be one of 3 gardens in 2018 that will host our AHS Region 5 Summer meeting. We'd love to have you join us for a fun weekend!! Visit the Daylily Society of Greater Atlanta website for more information about the 2018 Region 5 Meeting and garden tours.
We are downsizing our collection of tall bearded and Japanese iris, so call or visit us to check on availability of specific cultivars.
Please be aware that this is a small hobby-business inspected and licensed by the state and not a large-scale nursery. Beginning late-April 2017 through July 2017, we plan to be open most every Friday and Saturday, 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM and other times by appointment. We can open other days and times if you’ll give us a call and we’ll do our best to work with your schedule. Just to be on the safe side, please call before you come to make sure that someone can be available to help you on your visit. (770) 410-0548
We’re located north of Atlanta, West of GA 400, just a few minutes outside of Alpharetta in the Crabapple Community. From GA 400, take Old Milton Parkway west for 4 miles. (The street name changes, but you continue straight.) Turn right onto Broadwell Rd. at the stop light and continue for 5.3 miles. (Again, the street name changes, but you continue straight.) We’re located on the left side of the road at 15230 Birmingham Highway, just past Taylor Road. You’ll see the sign.
Remember that late Spring through early Fall are the best planting months for iris in the Atlanta area and daylilies can be planted just about anytime that the soil can be worked. Iris and daylilies are both perennials, so they’ll bloom year after year with very little care. We hope to see you in the garden this spring!
