updating into the future, continues

March 26 2007, spring cleanup has begun at Willow Brook Acres.  At left  Sally and garden dog Lily are hoping the weather will  get warmer from here on.  Our last frost date is May 15 and it has been known to snow here in April...

But then came the endless winter...

The 2007 early spring quickly turned into an endless winter.  After a brief early spring clean up, winter began again with days of snow and 20 degree temperatures.  On April 14, we are expecting another snow from the west edge of a Nor'easter that will slam into Pennsylvania, New York and some New England states.  They are predicting an inch of slushy snow for us. [As I look outside at 6:40 PM, it has begun to snow]

 

At top is the beautiful Snow Fountain Weeping Cherry that is the first to bloom at Willow Brook Acres.  We enjoyed it for one day because the next day we were greeted with a snow and freezing temperatures. The picture at  left is the tree in bloom in the April snow.

Willow Brook Acres is a home grown business that grew out of a love for a most excellent and easy to grow perennial, the daylily. 

John and Sally Marcum are a two person team that have been married for 45 years and have been gardening with daylilies for 20 years.  While Sally is the gardener and hybridizer, she knows she could not run Willow Brook Acres without John.

Willow Brook Acres Garden, 2010

Willow Brook Acres hopes to encourage the average home gardener to grow and enjoy a variety of daylilies.  We offer many that are priced for the backyard gardener as well as some for the collector that wants the newest Introductions.  We are located east of Norwalk, Ohio on State Rt. 61.  Watch for the "Daylilies For Sale" sign pointing to our driveway.

For our mail order customers, it is our policy is to send generous, mature bare root daylilies.  Most of our daylilies are priced as a double fan. And in many cases the order with be dug with more than 2 fans on the division.   But sometimes it is necessary to offer a single fan price.   Next to the price on our lists a single fan is indicated by an [SF] or [S].

We begin shipping in May.  No Shipping in July but resume at the end of August.  ordering instructions  NOTE:  Plants shipped early spring will have smaller green fan size but a mature root structure.  They will finish growing to their mature size in your garden.

In 2007 Sally introduced the first Willowbrook cultivars.  You can see our 2007 introductions HERE.  And look at our seedlings page that may prove to be future introductions. 

In 2010 our gardens were on tour with the AHS Region 2 Summer Tours.  [Pictures coming soon]

Then in 2012 we were happy to see two submitted photos of Willow Brook Acres, Sally Marcum garden, appeared in the wonderful AHS book, Landscaping With Daylilies as featured on the American Hemerocallis Society http://daylilies.org
