Introduction to Isabel Hibbard Gardens by the Late Isabel Hibbard:
Welcome To My Garden and I Hope You Enjoy Your Visit
I have dedicated more than 23 years to hybridizing daylilies with an emphasis on extending the blooming season well into September and October in Zone 7.
I have created about 40 introductions of both LATES to VERY LATES - all well beyond the old benchmark late blooming daylily "Sandra Elizabeth".
My garden in Farmingdale is set up for year-round enjoyment but since we are in Zone 7, this means the real show is February through November.
February blooming plants starts with Eranthis, Snowdrops and then comes the Winter Jasmine, Hellebores and Camellias.
April and May thousands of all kinds of spring bulbs are in full bloom. After that the Iris put on a big show together with different varieties of Astilbes and early Lilies and an assortment of perennials, new hybrid Mountain Laurels as well as Rhodies and Azaleas.
My biggest thrill comes in June with the start of a kaleidoscope of colored Daylilies and a rainbow of companion plants, and the show goes on and on until the end of September with some still blooming into October.
In the fall, the Asters, Japanese Anemones, Toad Lilies, Aconitums, and Mums all join in a final hurrah in my garden.
We welcome visitors to our garden with prior notice since I have a flexible work schedule, I can be home to greet them.
I have been keeping prices very reasonable, even so on my new daylily introductions. Some plants are in limited supply.
