From our family-owned farm to your garden
Three Shovels Farm is a small family-owned farm growing from hobby that quite literally grew out of control! Our owner is a life-long gardener who has grown daylilies, irises and other companion plants for over 40 years. Today we grow over 1,500 varieties of daylilies, including diploids and tetraploids of all sizes and colors representing early, mid, and late-season varieties in all daylily forms. We also grow nearly 500 Louisiana iris, 250 Japanese iris, and 175 Siberian iris - and like all plant fanatics, we're constantly adding to our collection. We welcome online and in-person visitors and are happy to share our gardens and knowledge about these easy to grow plants.
Daylilies (Hemerocallis) Daylilies are often called the perfect perennial. They are hardy, vigorous, long-lived, not fussy about soil type, relatively untroubled by pests and diseases, and of course beautiful. Provide them with at least six hours of sun daily, well-drained soil enriched with organic matter, a little bit of fertilizer and adequate moisture and you will be rewarded by performance to their full potential. They will bloom happily in an undisturbed clump for years!
