I ordered seven Ron Valente day lilies - they were good sized plants - very good prices during the sale. All planted and doing great.

I received my package from 5 acre farm on April 29, 2015 and was very pleased. The package arrived in two boxes, I ordered 20 daylilies, and all were individually wrapped in damp newspaper. Some were a little yellow from their trip, but all were in good condition and looked very healthy. This is my first experience with ordering daylilies online, I usually go to nurseries in and around the area, so I was apprehensive. I planted them all that day and they all look healthy and will probably bloom this year! I can't wait. Thank you Rod and Jim, I will order from you again!

I have been very pleased with the customer service given me by Rob. He is respectful and excited about Daylilies in a way that I thought only I was. I can\'t wait until the snow goes and the ground heats up so I can plant the lovely daylilies that I know Rob and his partner will send. They have so many wonderful colors, shapes and sizes to choose from that it took me quite a bit of time to narrow my list down to a do-able level! Their prices are better than competitive, they are unusually generous early in the ordering season as they give you 60% off the list prices! Thanks Rob for your time and attention.

I received my plants a couple days ago and they arrived in good condition and there were a few extra plants included! Rob has been very helpful via phone and email as he has answered my many questions. He is always friendly and cheerful. I have put the lilies in the ground after following his instructions to the letter. I will write again later and let you know how the plants survived our soil and weather (and my gardening), but I am not expecting any problems. I really encourage you to give 5 Acre Farm Daylilies a try. I do not think that you will be disappointed, in fact I think that you will be really happy with the experience. Thanks again, Rob. :)On March 30th, 2015, lindaisling added the following:
Well to continue the story of the day lilies . . . Every one of the flowers bloomed last year! And each bloom was exquisite. It is too early this year to know yet how many of them survived the winter but I have already put in a large order for many different varieties of day lilies and I can't wait for May to get here so I can get them and put them into the ground! Rob greeted me like a good friend and gave me some things to think about in regard to hybridizing so I can't wait to be able to try my hand at it. I will continue to get day lilies from 5 Acre Farm - Daylilies until I have purchased every kind of daylily that they have available. That will take more than a few wonderful years to accomplish due to financial and physical constraints but I will love every minute of each year as the gift of flowers keeps on giving. Thanks again Rob!
I recently purchased daylilies from 5 Acre Daylily Farm. I talked to them on two separate occasions and both Rod and Jim were very helpful and friendly. I was having trouble deciding between several daylilies. Rod was very knowledgable and gave me enough information so that I could choose a daylily that would suit my needs. The daylilies that I ordered were in great shape and there was even a bonus daylily with the order. I highly recommend the 5 Acre Daylily Farm.

The owners of 5 Acre Daylily Farm, Rod Kroemer and Jim Wuersch, are wonderful people to deal with. They introduce daylilies that were hybridized by the late Ron Valente. The plants I received looked large, healthy and robust but perished a few weeks after planting. This was due ENTIRELY to the US Post Office's gaffe of leaving them in a hot truck for five days. Rod and Jim REPLACED EVERY DAYLILY before they even knew what the post office did. It would be great if every daylily business had the same high standards.

I went to this farm for one of my mother's hosta meetings, and it's one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. Even though it was late in the season, all of the daylilies were goergeous, and their prices were very reasonable. The Penny Serenade I bought had gorgeous color, and was very definitive. Jim and Rod are wonderful people, and I'm sure that a lot of my future daylilies will come from them!
