Our garden will again be open for tours and sales during our open garden days. Open garden days for 2019 will be posted soon. Gardens will be open from 9am to 2pm on those dates. Other dates and times are available by appointment. During the open gardens we look forward to greeting new guests, talking with repeat customers along with new friends they bring to share the beauty of the garden. We enjoy watching first time visitors in the garden. They are almost in shock at the mass of color. If you are in the area during the open garden dates please stop by to visit the garden. During our open garden we will be giving each visitor one free daylily of our choice.

Here is a map to the gardens, 412 S Parker Rd, Oakland, Iowa.

The fall of 2017 was very unusual for our garden. Warmer and somewhat longer than normal. Mary and I were able to move and rework a large number of plants. We also added several new plants to our garden during the 2017 growing season. With all these changes we have a little higher number of plants listed as DISPLAY. Once we see how they performed this winter that could change.

Please e-mail or call to place an order and we can you give instructions for payment. Shipping is $11 for first plant and $1.50 per plant thereafter.

Welcome to Keast Daylily Gardens

Our garden is located in Oakland a small rural town is Southwest Iowa near Shenandoah where the AHS began. We are a small state inspected daylily nursery with somewhat limited numbers of any given daylily. Garden bloom usually starts late June and runs through late July. We have collected several bloom season extending cultivars with extra early varieties, plus late and extra late varieties. Depending on the year we can have good rebloom.

Mary and I started growing daylilies over 20 years ago. Daylilies seem to love the deep soil here in our Iowa garden and have prospered. We presently grow over 1000 registered varieties of daylilies plus our seedlings. Our interest in daylilies includes all forms from miniatures, doubles, large flower, unusual forms and spiders.

Depending on the weather we can usually start digging and shipping plants in late April through May, then again August through early September. Let us know if you need your order shipped outside of these dates and we will try to work with you. We try to ship only plants we would like to receive.

Mary and I belong to the Nebraska Daylily Society as well as the AHS. We are also very proud to have our garden listed as an AHS Display Garden in Region One.

We are proud to list the introductions of our good friends David & Val Jean Hansen from Papillion, NE. Between the high demand and moving new plants into our garden several of their daylilies are listed as DISPLAY for the 2018 growing season. Most of the Hansen introductions have great toothy edges. White, gold and yellow teeth, some even have two or more color combinations of colored teeth.
