Jack: Check out I don't think they actually sell the stuff you're looking for but I suspect they can point you in the right direction. Good luck!

If at all possible, it's best to buy locally. Not only will you be helping neighbors, but the plants won't have to be shipped -- or at least, not as far. Your local or state extension office is a good place to start enquiries for local greenhouses and growers, as are phone books. Most states also have some sort of growers' association and would be glad to hook you up with someone. And you might try greenhouse suppliers in your area; they can tell you who's growing.

If they're grown locally, then they grow locally - that's a good thing to know. Also means you won't be importing any problems you don't already have - like that new daylily rust that's going to wipe out all current strains of daylilies in the USA.
