First time customer - I placed an order online. I inquired with Charlie regarding the availability of several varieties; his responses were always timely and courteous. The plants I received were of excellent quality and generous size. The shipment was dispatched within a two days of payment; upon arrival, it was apparent that great care was taken with packing. I will certainly be ordering from Shaw's Sunshine Gardens again in the future.

I emailed them about shipping plants this late in the season and their response was quick and their customer support was great. The plants were nice double fans (sometimes more) with large root systems. They arrived well packaged and the fans were still green. This was my first time ordering from this company but it won't be my last. Great job Shaw Sunshine Gardens

After an extended search for Hyperion daylilies, Charlie went out of his way to accommodate my request. He did not have them readily available but made a special effort to divide them from his personal stock and fulfill my request. I was delighted with the condition of the plants and will purchase from them again anytime I need daylilies.

A great vendor!

I recently placed my first order to Shaw's Sunshine Gardens. What a pleasant experience! I told Charles I was ordering plants to share with friends who had admired some of our "double" daylilies. We didn't have enough of our own plants to divide so I was ordering plants to give away. When the order arrived, all plants were in excellent condition. Since Charles knew I was planning to give the plants away, he generously included an additional "double" for me. I was so grateful. Charles quickly responded to all emails and kept me informed about my order. I am extremely pleased and would definitely recommend Shaw's Sunshine Gardens to others.

My plants arrived in beautiful condition. I received multiple large fans. Charlie was also very helpful and informative, and helped me select the type of daylilies I was looking for. They have a fantastic selection in varying price ranges. I've purchased daylilies from many places, and these were among the very best. Highly recommended!

This was my first time ordering from Shaw's Sunshine Garden. I was very happy with every aspect of the process. They are prompt at answering emails, very friendly, updates so you knew when everything was coming. The plants arrived and were more than 2 fans and healthy. They also added in some extras! A pleasure. I would do business with them in the future!

You can't go wrong buying daylilies from Shaw's Sunshine Gardens. Charlie is very helpful and keeps you informed about your order. We received at least 3 fans of all the varieties we purchased. Plus, the quality of the plants were excellent. Don't hesitate to make your purchase from Shaw's.

My son's name is Joshua, so I was looking for a lily with his name in it. I'm working on a "family" garden, using plants with family names in them. I found Shaw's Sunshine Gardens with a Google search. Seeing how highly they rated with Garden Watchdog, looked over their site, found "Joshua Nathan Allen" and contacted them about placing an order. Charlie checked to make sure he had this lily, contacted me, and I placed an order. I ordered two, he sent me four very healthy looking fans. He was in contact with me every step of the way, through the ordering process, let me know when they shipped, any questions I had he answered the same day. I look forward to seeing them in bloom. I will update when that happens. So far I am very pleased!

I was looking to change a large area that I had removed several loropetalums from,and replace with small day lilies. I wanted yellow, red, and purple. Mostly, I wanted to get them from s super reputable source. Of course, there's no better place to start with other then Dave's Garden, so that's what I did. Shaw's Sunshine Gardens was one of Dave's top 5 companies for lilies. I can definitely see why. I ordered 30 plants and couldn't be happier with the plants, price, and most of all-the service! I'm a very picky guy and Shaw's took care of all my needs. He worked with me on delayed delivery and shipping as well as giving me a great price on the lilies. Charlie Shaw is the real deal and so is his company-Sunshine Gardens! If you want beautiful, healthy lilies, this is the company you should absolutely check out first!
Service is Great! And isn't that what it's all about?

We are expanding our daylily collection this year and in the process have ordered online from several companies. What we received from some companies was very disappointing—but not Shaw's! Charlie Shaw was a pleasure to work with, checking availability before I ordered and responding quickly to e-mails. Almost everything I asked about was in stock—so much so that I had to make some tough choices for the sake of budgeting time, space, and money. But there's always next year! My order arrived in good condition, carefully wrapped, and I was pleasantly surprised at both the excellent condition of the plants and the generous amount of roots included with each fan. Shaw's will definitely be on the list of my favorite daylily providers.

I recently placed my first order with Shaw's Sunshine Gardens and was able to take advantage of their 50% off sale. My order was promptly shipped at the agreed upon time. I was very impressed with the quality of the plants! Each plant contained a minimum of three-to-four fans with robust root systems. Charlie Shaw provided excellent customer service and was a pleasure to work with. Charlie was very responsive via email and also provided a tracking number for my shipment. I highly recommend Shaw's Sunshine Gardens and plan to order again next year!

I received my daylilies from Shaw's Sunshine Gardens earlier this week. I could not believe the size. They were all solid root bunches 3"-4" across. As I unpacked them, it was like a bottomless box of lilies. I had to check my receipt to remember how many I bought. Turns out they were my bonus plants. Not one, but Several! I too could not believe the generosity! I cannot recommend them highly enough.
Thank you Charlie & Deb

I was thrilled when I opened my package of daylilies that I ordered thru mail. Their web site has many, many, many daylilies and I ended up calling Charlie to help me out. As I was looking for particular colors, Charlie spent a lot of time with me suggesting some of the daylilies that I might like. I received my box of daylilies within few days.... Each daylily was beautifully wrapped, very healthy, the tubers were huge.. and the selection of colors and sizes was better than perfect..This is a beautifully ran family business, excellent customer service, fantastic follow up and amazing quality ...I am definitely placing another order very soon

Just visited Shaw's Nursery and had a great time talking with Charlie while wandering around the nursery. We had previously bought some of his daylillies and after a few years the identifying label had faded out. we took some picture of the particlar lilly and he I'd it for us. We also bought a couple more varieties while there. This is a great place to visit and purchase daylillies.

Top of the line. Very easy and friendly to work with. All my interactions were prompt and very friendly. I ordered 5 plants. Since this was my first time buying from them I only ordered the 5 plants. I was burned badly last year by another seller with very small single fan plants after placing a HUGE order so now I always buy small my first time. No such problem with Shaw's. I'll buy again for sure and a bigger order. Plants were great and with the 5 plants I got 3 bonus plants worth 72% of my order. Can't ask for anymore. Buy with confidence from Shaw's Sunshine Gardens! Thanks Charlie and Debra!

Sometime in December, when it had been below zero for longer than I could remember, I developed a springtime fantasy for a daylily with a huge green throat. With help from the internet I found Green Rainbow and Shaw Gardens. Charlie Shaw understood. But he had sold a lot of it last year, so he knew his supply was down, but at some point, and after several pleasant and informative email exchanges, he decided he would certainly have enough for my one plant and committed to an early May ship date. I think he emailed me at least twice just before the shipping date. I had no excuse not to be ready. He's a great communicator. The plant arrived last week -- big and healthy and accompanied by two bonus plants that reflected thoughtful choice (similar heights to the plant I bought). Everything is thriving. I am very pleased and will be back.

This is the third year I have had the pleasure of buying day- lilies from Shaw's Sunshine Gardens. It has always been a wonderful experience in every way possible. First, Charlie KNOWS about his product and loves to share his expertise regarding how/where to plant, what fertilizers to use, how to prep soil, etc. Second, he has over 1,000 different types, and they are dug and prepared on the day of the sale. The e-catalogue is informational and easy to access. Third, you won't find a bigger bargain anywhere. Instead of getting the plants and wondering if that tiny green knob is big enough to grow into anything, you will have mature plants (often multiples that can be divided) that are ready to make themselves at home in your garden. He responds quickly to customers and is very professional. This is a company you will want to do business with time and again both for quality and service.

I received the order today (shipped in the week I requested) in VERY good condition. The plants look exceedingly healthy, they are a very generous size.
They also included an 'over the top' bonus shipment.
I am looking forward to getting these healthy plants in the ground.

I won a gift certificate for Shaw's Sunshine Gardens from a friend back east, but did not believe that these palnts would survive in Phoneix. I called Charlie and he not only walked me through how to select the best plant choices for my area, he gave me some tips on how to build and prepare my plant beds for success. I ordered my plants in Feburary, and they were delivered right on schedule so I could plant them on the exact day I wanted to plant. I recieved some bonus plants and we happily expanded our garden bed plans! Not only were the plants in great condition, moist, wrapped and clean... he included several items from my "Wish List" in a variety of color schemes. Shaw's has turned my desert front yard into a bright and happy showcase of my Southern roots! I would never have attempted to grow daylilies in Phoneix without advice from Shaw's! Because of Charlie's assistance and guidence, I have blooms only 60 days from when we planted! Amazing!

I just placed an order with Shaw's Sunshine Gardens. Mr. Shaw is lovely to work with! I had a question prior to ordering and he got back to me in a very prompt and courteous manner and has continued to update me on the status of the order. If only more businesses would take a cue from vendors such as Shaw's Sunshine Gardens....

I received my order yesterday and I could not possibly be happier. It is apparent that Shaw's Sunshine Gardens take pride in their daylilies. Each plant was clean, well-trimmed, and meticulously packaged. I received generous-sized clumps with some of the most well-developed and robust root structures that I have seen. In addition, Mr. Shaw sent some absolutely exquisite bonuses! I cannot possibly recommend Shaw's highly enough. They treat you as if you are the only customer - an absolutely wonderful experience!

The customer service here is outstanding and the gardens are lovely. Mr. Shaw treats his customers as well as he treats his lilies!
It took two visits for me to choose what I wanted. Mr. Shaw patiently answered all of my questions and informed me on which daylily breeds would work best for my yard... and he let my son play with his cat and dog and crawl around his office floor.
He also told me when his annual 50% off sale was happening - so I waited and was able to get the discount! (FYI I think the sale is from 8/1-9/30/2012)

The lilies I received were in incredible condition: three fans each with strong roots, and clean, trimmed leaves. The quality is amazing.

I HIGHLY recommend Shaw's Sunshine Garden!

I volunteer at the Huntsville Madison County Botanical Gardens and work primarily in the daylily garden. In making pictures of all our daylilies, I discovered an error in the Stout Medal Bed and have been searching for the correct cultivar for Ruffled Pinafore. I had seen a presentation by Charlie Shaw and was impressed and contacted him in hopes of finally getting the correct plant. He sent me six fans of the real Ruffled Pinafore and a bonus of Sabine Baur. They arrived in perfect condition. Thanks to Shaw's Garden my two-year search is over and our collection is complete.

I am a regular volunteer at the Huntsville Botanical Gardens and work in the daylily garden. When we needed to add the latest Stout Medal Winner to our Stout Medal Collection, there was no question in my mind that the best place to obtain the correct plant was Charlie Shaw's Sunshine Garden. When I searched his site for the plant, it wasn't listed so I sent him an e-mail asking if he had the plant and he e-mailed me back that he did and that we could purchase it from him. I received three beautiful fans and three fans of another daylily as well. Both are now growing in our wonderful world class daylily garden at the botanical gardens. It is wonderful to know there is a place where one can purchase healthy plants that are the true representations of desired cultivars. Often one is surprised when plants bloom--but that never happens when the plants come from Charlie Shaw. I highly recommend his daylilies for purchase.

Second year to order from these folks and one could not ask for a better customer experience. Plants arrive healthy and carefully packed for shipping. 1st year plants were beautiful and I have no doubts that this spring will be the same. But as great as the plants have performed, the customer care, service and communication is what sets Charlie with the best of the best. Will certainly do business again and again. Thanks!

Another terrific experience with Charlie this year with the same wonderful customer service and communication. I couldn’t contain my excitement with Charlie’s flowers blooming in my yard this year and invited some co-workers over. So, when they found out that I had ordered with Shaw’s Sunshine Gardens again this fall, they just had to get in on the fun and we placed a 2nd order this year! Nothing but the best from Charlie every time and at every point in the transaction – quality plants that perform beautifully and unmatched customer service. You could never top working with Shaw’s Sunshine Gardens.
