I have bought daylilies from Crintonic-Curt Hanson for 4 or 5 years and bought his cultivars from Valente Gardens (unfortunately no longer in business) previously. His plants have been healthy, height and size accurate within reason as no one's garden soil or conditions are exactly the same. I love tall deep and dark purple daylilies and his have been some of the best. Of course he has in his years of hybridizing produced all colors, sizes and types of daylilies but I find my favorite to be "XON VALDEZ". It is a big rugged plant with huge deep purple blooms. My only complaint might be that I wish I had garden room and garden budget to buy more of his daylilies than I already do. My recommendation anytime and thanks for raising plants that survive in mid-zone 4.

I highly recommend Crintonic & Curt Hanson. He is a blast to deal with and the bonus plants were generous beyond expectation. His plants are fabulous for those of us in the north. No wonder he's a leader in his field.
I have dealt with Curt Hanson several times. Once as a local club representative receiving purchased plants for our club's sale - plants were huge and Curt was generous with value beyond all expectations. I grow at least 20 of his introductions in my garden and they are beautiful. His creation, PRIMAL SCREAM received the highest award from the American Hemerocallis Society in 2003. I have also purchased plants at his garden and with the generous fans and many bonuses, I've had twice as
much planting work as I expected - no complaints! I highly recommend purchasing from him.

I received very nice plants with large fans. He also asked for my preferences for bonus plants.
Curt Hanson, proprietor of this garden, sends large, multi-division plants. Some of the largest daylilies we've ever received were from this nursery - and they were brand new introductions. The bonus plants were top notch. Hanson's own hybrids are selected for their great performance. We have seen them flourishing all the way from Massachusetts to Florida.
