I placed my first order two weeks ago for a few daylilies for a new garden that will be started in September, the ones I chose are not affordable at other online daylily companies and were a great price at Amadors and received them today in excellent condition, nice size clumps and a bonus fan. They even delayed shipping them because of the horrendous heat wave at their farm so they would not be stressed in shipment. Very pleased and will order again as soon as my new garden is arranged so I can fill in with the proper colors and sizes. On July 25th, 2014, plantgnome1 added the following:
Made my second order last week-tried to email a message but their server keeps rejecting my addresses. Hope everything is okay over there.
Looking forward to my order-again great prices and great plants.
First of all, I have well over 100 different daylilies in my garden, most of which were ordered online. I ordered 5 daylily plants from Amador, and received very nice fans with great root systems. I also received a bonus plant equally nice.
Their prices are very competitive, as none of mine were over $6 and I received double fans of each !
I highly recommend this nursery. You will not be disappointed.
I've just ordered my second set of daylilies from Amador. The first is still going strong in very sandy soil in San Diego, but I've recently moved to upstate NY and am looking forward to starting a new colony in the mostly clay soil here. I'm sure that the plants will do well regardless. The previous batch showed up in great condition, although since I had lost my order confirmation I didn't know which on was which (they are only labeled with the product code). I think the only bad thing about Amador is that you are spoiled for choice. Also, a way to search the online shop by bloom color would be handy.

I had a great experience with Amador Flower Farm. They have many choices of daylilies. Their prices are outstanding only 5-8 dollars for a double fan!! They also gave me 2 free daylily fans. One arrived poorly and I quickly emailed them. They told me to try and plant it. It did not grow. They responded by saying they will happily replace the "Merlot Rouge" that had rotted away. I am currently awaiting the replacement. I highly reccomend this company. Shop now, I unfortunately ordered before the September sale of 30% of various types. They provide all info on how to grow, care, tetra/dip, bloom size, good picture, and plant size. Thanks!!!
I have ordered about 6 varieties of daylily over the past couple years from Amador. They have a huge selection (800 varieties in their print catalog) and their customer service was great. They sent nice sized fans, which were labeled so no more guessing which is which, and they were carefully packed. And they sent bonus daylilies, which I now enjoy in my garden. With so many lilies to choose from, you'll find something to suit your fancy. The prices are reasonable, and they ship UPS so the plants don't spend too much time in transit. I highly recommend this company.

My experience with Amador was very pleasant.
The telephone clerk was very helpful, the
order was filled promptly and the packing was
absolutely wonderful. Instead of getting a box
full of guess-which-one-it-is, the daylilies were
all properly labeled, a catalog was included and
I'm thrilled about the bonus plants!
My garden has many very old cultivars, and Amador
happened to carry several I was looking for. Great
selection indeed. Good prices, too.
I even received a coupon for ten dollars off another
order, which I do intend to use.
I'll be back, Amador, and will gladly refer you to others.

I have ordered twice from Amador's and found their service to be superb and their plants are excellent quality. Big healty DL fans, and every single one grew beautifully.
Amador flower farm is a wonderful place to go and see the plants growing (nice to go often and see the change in seasons). They specialize in daylilies, but carry many California natives and items for the water garden. The prices seem to be a little high but plant are unusual and of high quality.
I didn't know that Amador Flower Farm offered a catalog. It is a beautiful nursery. It is beautifully landscaped with most of the landscaping plants being labeled, making it possible to visualize how a certain plant might look in your own garden. They have a good selection of healthy plants suitable for the Sierra Foothill area. The prices are a little high, but the quality of the merchandise seems to be quite good. I have been delighted with the plants I purchased from them.
