I'm surprised at the negative feedback posted. I've only ordered once from GH Wild and had a good result. Their Hosta by the handfuls was an excellent price and I actually received more plants than were advertised. All 29 of them did great their first season. No complaints here.

Over the past 25 years, I have purchased a total of 102 varities of daylilies from Gilbert H.Wild and Son and have been extremely pleased with each order. My first order was a retail order and the rest were wholesale and I started my own small nursery (North Hills Nursery) with these daylilies. I no longer operate the nursery as started but now because of my age I specialize in only one plant category (Sempervivums-aka, hens and chicks). I spotted their nursery here on Dave's and wanted to tell of the outstanding service I had received from them over the years. Daylilies are the supreme perennial because they are so easy to grow. Place an order with them and you will be completly satisfied.

Although my experience with GHW & Son occurred over a year ago, I feel compelled to write comments in the hope that others may be saved from the same experience. Here's my story:

I received a GHW & Son special catalog in the mail, listing daylilies at bargain prices (most varieties under $3.00). I live in So. Cal, so although peak season for planting daylilies had passed, it wasn't a concern. I spent about $60.00 for plants/shipping. I received the plants quickly but to my dismay, every single one looked terrible! They were small and shriveled and all but two (out of about 17) had mold and/or rot. They also sent me one less plant than I ordered.

I called GHW & Son immediately. The rep. was defensive and unapologetic. She tried to convince me that plants often times look shriveled and moldy because of shipping, and that I should simply wash off the mold and plant them. "They should do fine" she said. Although the rep offered me a full refund, she encouraged me to plant them first and pursue a refund only if they don't do well. Against my better judgement (and only because I have two small children and a trip to the post office is difficult) I decided to plant them first.

Of the 18 plants I ordered, I received 17, planted 17, 9 rotted in the ground almost immediately, 2 more rotted over time, and the rest have survived but are weak. I cannot help but suspect that these plants were end of season carry overs and were sitting in a warehouse wasting away...prompting a bargain price catalog to be mailed out to "saps" like myself. Lesson learned!

I ordered about 80 daylilies from a pre-season sales flyer. The prices were incredible, but all 80 daylilies arrived packed on top of each other (no seperators of any kind, leaf against leaf) in a single box. All had some degree of mold on the root system, many severe. A few were hopelessly mushy. I did not contact the company, just didn't have the time to deal with returns. Few survived.

I gave them a 2nd chance and placed another order in late summer. I added a comment to the order indicating my experience with the 1st order and requesting more careful packing of my next order. The 2nd order did arrive in much better condition, but (with 1 noteable exception) was still a poor comparison to similiar items ordered elsewhere.
Most of the asiatic and oriental lilies had significant mold and rot, such that I had to cut away infected parts of bulbs some of which will likely die.

Now for the exception. Imagine my surprise when the peonies arrived! Peonies appear to be the one thing they do VERY well. The peonies were robust and healthy and HUGE. They were easily the most impressive peonies that I have ever received from any of the numerous vendors with which I do business.

In the future I will likely get my lilies elsewhere, but Wild WILL be my 1st stop for peonies!

On April 17th, 2005, scutler changed the rating from neutral to positive and added the following:

Ahm, this is hard to say, BUT I think I may have been wrong.

This year I placed another large order for daylilies, peonies, and other plants. Since the plants I received before looked so bad, I was hesitant but could not resist the great pre-season sales prices. Again, the daylilies arrived looking dissapointingly awful, BUT I changed my rating from neutral to positive because...

This time I put the aweful looking daylilies in pots so that I could monitor them better. Virtually overnight the awful looking plants sprang into action and starting growing like crazy!!! I was amazed! So despite the way they look upon arrival, I had to conclude that they actually are very healthy and just waiting for an opportunity to grow! And, consequently, at these prices are a great deal.

In addition, I noticed that the plants are all quite large. Another positive: all of my attempts to start Russian Sage failed until I purchased and planted the large, dead-looking "sticks" I rcvd from this merchant last year. Ironically, while the small plants I bought elsewhere looked much better on arrival, the only ones that survived and thrived were the ugly sticks from this merchant, which quickly leafed out to become large, healthy, lovely plants. AND, are more comparable in size to 1qt or larger potted plants.

And I cannot say enough about the wonderful peonies. These guys must be the kings of the peony world. I have never, ever received such HUGE, multi-eyed,wonderful looking peonies anywhere else at any price. If you are going to buy peonies, you MUST buy them here!

So, my advice is buy-up, ignore the way things (other than peonies) look on arrival, and treat them like the fabulous, healthy plants they really are!!

On April 30th, 2006, scutler added the following:


I am anything but a peony expert. All of the peonies I bought elsewhere, including those at several times the price, promptly died. The only living peonies I have are those that I purchased from this company! Now for the 1st time EVER, I have 2 BLOOMING PEONIES in my Zone8b garden in Charleston, SC! My 1st peony to bloom was Gay Paree. I RECEIVED IT FROM WILD IN FALL 2005 and IT IS BLOOMING IN SPRING 2006!!! I am told that peonies often take years to reach blooming size. My 2nd blooming peony (also from Wild), was received in Fall of 2004 and is blooming now in Spring 2006. And both were purchased at incredibly low sale prices!

If you are looking for peonies you owe it to yourself to try the ones at Wild. I won't buy peonies anywhere else unless the variety is not available at Wild and then I'll really have to think about it.

"It is quite surprising to me that 5-6 people from the last 3 years can work so hard to destroy the reputation of a Company who has been growing quality plants for 120 years.

This was my second order from Wilds. Last year I ordered my first daylilies from them. This year I ordered from other places as well, so I now have a basis for comparison.

My credit card was charged a full two weeks before my order was shipped (this was NOT pre-season; order was placed in mid-May). When I saw the charge on my statement I called to find out if the order had been shipped yet (it hadn't - hadn't even been dug yet). The woman I spoke to in customer service was a bit snippy as if I was out-of-line for inquiring.

The daylily fans I eventually received were dry compared to those I've gotten from other mail-order sources. A few fans were average-sized, but many were quite small. However, they were cheap because I was purchasing from the half-price hobbyist sale, and daylilies have a strong will to live, so I think most of the plants will make it.

In short, I would not pay full price for Wild's daylilies. If I needed quite a few older varieties I might be willing to purchase again from their half-price hobbyist sale (which requires a $50 minimum purchase) or from their end-of-season sale, but not from their pre-season sale.

I ordered from this company 3 times. The first order was daylilies, and they were smaller than other companies that I ordered from. The second order was for iris and peonies, and they were very nice, although shipped in late September (ordered in July), which was late for many of the iris to get established in my zone, and many of them didn't make it through the winter. I would order iris from them again, but only on the condition that they ship in August. My last order was for daylilies again. I couldn't pass up the price on a particular variety that is about 3 times as expensive elsewhere. I ordered 9 of them, expecting them to be tiny, but to my surprise they were quadruple the size of the daylilies that I had ordered before! I was very, very pleased, and expect that I will have many blooms from them this summer. Overall, I would recommend them, but I would request early ship dates.

I ordered bargain daylilies from them, and the order arrived pretty soon. Plants were not uniform - some huge and healthy and some tiny, dead looking. Some roots were moldy. I put them in a bucket of water and they sit there for few days since I couldn't get to plant immediately. By the time of planting ALL of them looked just great - they recovered nicely in the water. I don't know about labeling, and actually it doesn't matter this much - I made a mixed planting along the rock wall. Just want different colors.
I've seen much worse daylilies sent to me for much more money, so I am very pleased with G.Wild, and actually placed another order for more plants.

On June 10th, 2004, Janna changed the rating from positive to neutral and added the following:

I just want to add that all the daylilies from the next shippment were great, and started to grow immediately. One root from the previous order died, and when I asked for a replacement, customer service was rigid and unflexible - they refused a refund or replacement, and issued a store credit, so I'll have to pay shipping costs for a replacement. I thought it was not very nice. After all it is not my fault that one of the plants was sent in poor condition and didn't make it. Shipping will cost me more that a plant itself. Well, may be they will read this and consider to improve their customer service.

Called and purchased about 22 daylilies from this company about three weeks ago. Years ago I purchased from them had great success. I asked , at the time of the order, if they would make sure that I get what I order and the order taker said no problem. I went on line and saw this thread and some of the negative comments that I read about Gilbert and Wild. So , I emailed them and asked them if what I read ( the negative stuff) would happen to me. I was assured that it wouldn't. Well......... I got got my order two days ago. The plants were dried up and barely alive. VERY VERY few double and thriple fans as was promised in their brocure. Four of the plants were mush. A great deal of them had mold on the roots from their storage over winter ( they must dig these in September). That's over eight months in storage. One plant was wrong and they failed to ship another. NOW I am really doubtful about my second question to them , whether they will come true to color!!! These were for a friend , a neighbor, who works for a very large garden magazine. He and his wife picked out the colors. When I called the order department , the lady there mentioned that I 'might get replacements in a week' . I said that I was dissapointed and she said that I would have to pay another shipping charge for the replacements. Imagine having to pay twice to have the order right. I refused that offer. She then asked me to send the bad plants back ( shipping at my cost) . She didn't get it. Anyway , I finally talked to Gary there and he offered to refund my money. I said that I wasn't trying to beat them out of anything, only wanted what I paid for.I asked him to work with me, if I keep the plants and get replacements and they actually turn out to be what the labels say they were supposed to be , etc. I am debaiting asking for my money back and will call them today. And yes, I will probably pay for the shipping to get the plants back to them. This forum has great
value. I wish I had read it before my order was enroute.

In the spring of 1991, I placed my first daylily order with Gilbert H. Wild & Son, Inc. Since then, I ordered many times from this company and have been well pleased with their healthy plants, service, and prices.

However, this spring, upon receiving the twelve cultivars that I ordered from their "2004 Daylily Surplus Sale" flyer, I was dismayed to find that this shipment of plants was not the same caliber as I had always received. These plants appeared old; as though they had been dug for a long time and segments of the root system on several of them were mushy although the crowns of all appeared satisfactory. Particularly puny were Siloam Irving Hepner and Siloam Virginia Henson, both of which I planted in a protected area instead of my daylily bed. Notwithstanding their enervated condition, all the plants appear to be thriving and it is my hope that all are correctly labeled since I'm reading where some customers are justifiably displeased to find their plants mislabeled.

Thus far, there is no apparent reason why I should refrain from ordering from Gilbert H. Wild & Son, Inc. Perhaps this order was less than desirable due to unforeseen circumstances, or perhaps part of the problem could have been with the freight service.

Ordering from this company rests with the discretion of the buyer; nevertheless, Gilbert H. Wild & Sons, Inc., should be attentive to the complaints it is receiving from a disproportionate number of dissatisfied customers.

My order arrived today and I felt it was a poorly packed order. The order was daylilies and one hosta. The daylilies were almost smashed and the hosta looked like a chopped string mop. Considering having shipped hosta myself, I find the one I received unacceptable. They are all soaking in water, and I have hopes they will survive and grow once in the ground. I have not contacted the company as the order was small and it isn't worth extra shipping costs to ask for a replacement for any of items.

On April 9th, 2004, Gootzie added the following:

Update: On the plus side of their order, they were prompt, courteous, and added a bonus plant. I still feel the hosta was done improperly, but the daylilies had large roots. Despite the packing and how bad the plants looked upon arrival, the plants are surviving. I would change this rating to a positive if I felt I would order from this company again. As it is, there isn't enough enthusiasm to do so.

In the spring of 2003, I ordered several hundred dollars of nursery stock among which were Asiatic lilies, I ordered fifteen different colors. These were planted very carefully with garden tags to identify them. Of the fifteen lilies I ordered, eight were the wrong color. (This is not a good score.) So I wrote them and told them I had received the wrong colors and tried to describe what I had received. They wrote back and said they would replace some of them. Others they felt were Ok and would do nothing about. I was not happy about this and called them on the phone to try to resolve the issue. I tried to explain that my descriptions were poor but was cut off. They were extremely RUDE, I was told that the colors I received were close enough. I never received any replacment lilys. To be blunt their customer service stinks! What ever happend to "The customer is always right" It seems to me that Wild & Son is more interested in making money than in having happy customers - Apparently they have so many customers they feel they can lose a few - Order your Lilys someplace else.

They also sent a bonus daylilly, not my favorite color, but a new gardener friend will love it. No mold, no rot. Just good plants.

Like pretty much everybody out there, I was attracted to Wild's by the prices and ordered one of their pre-season sales, 17 daylilies. Figured if it seemed too good to be true, then it probably was, but at the prices, I could learn by my mistakes. It was late in the daylily shipping season (ordered in mid-April). Received my daylilies promptly, packing fine, size of plants great, BUT they were dried up and yellowed, some moldy. Looked as if they had been sitting in some bin waiting to be shipped. Still, I planted them right away and fortunately it rained for about a week afterwards. I lost two (Custard Candy came very small and marginal and Siloam Fairy Tale that looked fine for a month or so and then failed -- go figure), but the others have done very well, Jolyene Nichols gorgeous, also El Desperado, Wineberry Candy, etc.
One further caveat, at least one of the daylilies was not what it should have been -- Love Those Eyes turned out to be a big handsome orange, not the yellow with dark eye zone it should be. Not sure on Strutter's Ball either.
My mom and grandmother bought from Wild's at least twenty years ago. Overall, I would buy from them again if they had a plant I wanted at their bargain basement prices, and after reading the comments here, I'll probably try their peonies and lilies.

I haven't ordered from Wild's since 1995. During the years 1990 to 1995, the shipments I received varied widely in quality. One year, the plants would be absolutely fantastic, and the next year hardly worth tossing on the compost heap. I visited Wild's in Sarcoxie during that time, and the plants I purchased on site (unnamed seedlings, mostly) were a fantastic value and fantastic plants. It was also a great excuse for a day-long road trip. I understand that there were management changes during those years, and that there may have been changes since 1995.

I don't know if I'd order from them again, but it seems the bad plant years coincide with bad weather years. I won't be ordering for a while in any case because I'm out of room for daylilies and peonies, and I'm hard-pressed to find more room for iris or hostas.

The daylillies grow quickly and I have divided a number of them to give to friends and family. The end of season sales are fantastic - the size and quality are the same as at the beginning of the year. I will continue using Wildes exclusively for daylillies and highly recommend them to anyone starting out to collect daylillies!

I have ordered from this company several times both hostas and daylilies. Each time I have received good stock and have yet to lose one of the plants. I was surprised how well they have done the first year each time. I will continue to order from them in the future

I ordered about 10 daylillies from this company last year and was very pleased with the results. I also ordered a peony which I just planted last fall.

This company seems to be one of the best in terms of quality and price on their daylillies. I have never tried their hostas or lillies though.

I ordered The bargain priced Asiatic Lilies of 25 for $12.95. A nice assortment with only one I didn't paticulary like but that is because I just didn't like the color. The bulbs were all large and all bloomed. My friends are anxiously awaiting them to spread so they can have some of the colors. The other individual Asiatics were great also and still reasonably priced. The Oriental Lillies were spectacular and since those are generally just an annual here I would have been disappointed had they not bloomed so profusely. I recomment the Lily Bulby from this company highly.

On October 12th, 2004, tyshee changed the rating from positive to negative and added the following:

This used to be an excellent place to purchase bulbs. I recommended them to a friend and she received bulbs in very poor condition. The people eventually gave her a refund but not without being rude first. My bulbs were small but healthy but arrived very late. This company is not as great as it used to be.
