Learn to raise vigorous daylilies

The Port St. Joe Garden Club has invited Clint Fussell, owner of Fussell’s Daylily Farm in Chipley, to speak Thursday, March 14, at 10 a.m. ET at the Garden Center at 216 Eighth Street. As always, the program is open to the public.

Fussell’s presentation, “Daylilies 101,” will appeal to both novice and experienced gardeners. He will share advice about how to raise vigorous daylily varieties that flourish in Forgotten Coast climate and soils. 

Due to the efforts of hybridizers in recent decades, daylilies can range in size from petite to over 3 feet tall. Blooms may flaunt hues of yellow, pink, purple, and ivory to provide eye-popping impact in the residential landscape. 

Over 1000 varieties of daylilies are cultivated on Fussell’s family farm. By carefully selecting early, mid, and late season bloomers, the home gardener can delight in splashes of color from daylilies throughout the growing season.
