Great company to deal with. Their daylily intros are absolutely fantastic and are very hardy. They have all done extremely well in my zone 4 garden. Solaris is an absolute must for northern gardeners.

Do not visit their farm in person if you or anyone in your party is Autistic or PTSD. It could be terrifying and cause a severe panic attack which would embarrass both you and the proprieter. It is not his fault. His stupid, thoughtless neighbors spend a great deal of time shooting and playing with guns. I have Aspergers Syndrome and totally "lost it" there.
I will never go back!!!!
So if this applies to you, buy mail order instead: Their daylilies and peonies are the absolute best, prices reasonable, and the selection is vast. Also they deserve your business for they can't do anything about their stupid neighbors.
We have bought many daylilies and peonies from Solaris and this year in the midwest is so hot and dry our state is now in a drought emergency situation. All my plants look wilted and miserable, except for the daylilies and native prairie flowers. The daylilies are a joy: bright and beautiful: however the foliage is starting to die back. Will they suffer next year? Time will tell. If you live in zone 5 or less, it is not wise to buy the semi-evergreen varieties. Mine have died in winters without much snow, although a heavy staw mulch will help. I sometimes forgot to put it on.

I spent the long winter researching daylily cultivars and daylily vendors. I have ordered from many places and have mostly been very pleased. I was looking for a vendor which sells hardy daylilies since I live in a cold zone and Nate Bremer's introductions caught my eye. After a lot of months debating which ones to order, I finalized my small order. What a wonderful surprise yesterday when my order arrived and my plants were very healthy-looking and larger than what I expected.

I ordered 4 tree peonies from them. They were shipped promptly and were very healthy, good-sized plants. Would order from again.

This was my first experience with this company but they had a yellow peony that I really wanted. It arrived today and is large with many eyes that are begging to be planted today. I will definately go back when they are selling again to see what else I might need...or WANT!

I am very pleased with my first daylily order from Solaris Farms. I received large healthy mutiple fans with great roots, and a lovely bonus plant. Great communication and prompt shipping, too.

I placed an order with Solaris Farms for daylilies late last summer. I was looking for specific features in terms of bloom time and bud count. I contacted Nate via e-mail with my list of possible choices and my questions in regard to them. I received a prompt reply as well as some suggestions. When I placed my order I asked that he choose the bonus plant based on what I was looking for in my other daylilies. When my order arrived, I was thrilled to see the size of my divisions....practically clumps. When I looked up my bonus plant I was amazed to see that it was one of the newer introductions, priced at more than the total of my entire order. The next time I'm looking for daylilies I will certainly be ordering from Solaris Farms. What a great experience.

I have visited this farm last summer and twice this summer, so far. All of the daylilies I have bought have done exceptionally well. The prices are good and the plants are exceptional. Everyone there is very friendly and more than willing to help. They are very generous with the size of the plants (clumps, really) and also with nice bonuses. Can't wait to go there again!

Wonderful, healthy, large fans: plus a great bonus; even though I had a small order.

Another wonderful experience (mid August) order.
Although he was out of one of the two varieties ordered,
he added TWO great bonus plants, along with a refund and helpful information about the plant that was not available.
I have not had this much success with any other daylily company.
Eagerly awaiting the Spring catalog!!!! :)

I bought a ITOH Peony named Bartzella last spring, they shipped it out in October, as promised for fall peony planting. I received a huge healthy looking root stock, packed very well . Nate was very good about getting back to me after I called inquiring about the availability of such a garden gem. I would not hesitate to order from them again & truly hope they continue to expand their peony program.

I found Solaris online and decided to visit the place personally to pick up some new daylilies. It was a very enjoyable experience to browse the place. Everyone was very helpful and the plants that I bought were nice and large! Plus they included a generous bonus.

I found Solaris Farms through a Google search for a specific daylily I wanted for my garden this season. I ordered several and received them today. They are just terrific - healthy, strong and freshly dug. I am so happy with this nursery and would recommend them for quality and for their good prices.

I received my mail order quickly. Sold out variety was substituted with a higher value "kid" of the plant, and it was a nice chunk. Even though one plant wasn't huge, these plants suffered almost NO setback at all upon planting. I have never had plants with less setback, even ones bought locally and planted within a day of digging.

I have been going to Solaris Farms for a couple years now. They are very helpful. All the plants I bought from them are very strong and healthy. I now have nearly 75 Daylillys, most from Solaris.The web-site is well done and informative.

Solaris Farms has the best daylilies I have ever purchased. I bought more than 40 different varieties from Nate and have never lost a single plant. They are wonderful looking plants and perform very well. The owner is very knowledgeable and very helpful. I enjoy going out to his place and seeing his new creations along with all the others plants he has.

We visited their gardens on July 12,03, the owner was extremely helpfull and informative. He fully explained all of the varietys of daylillies we were interested in and made other suggestions. I can"t spesk for his mail order business bur the lillies we picked were very healthy ane suprisingly large. On a scale of 1-10 would rate a 10. If you live within driving range definitly worth going and picking out your own plants.
