Default Daylilies: Atlanta area - free daylilies for the digging...

I divided a huge patch of daylilies sometime back and now they have
spread and I have 'way too many. My hope is to find somebody who will
come dig some. You could take 100 and not dent this group. I don't know
what kind they are as they were here when I bought my house. I live in
Dunwoody. Since it has been so warm this fall, these are still green and
full and the bed they are in is improved so they are easy to dig.

well the problem is they are your standard type of daylilies. Or common
"ditch lilies" which is why after you dug up a huge patch you have a blue
million of them now. I'd say your best bet is to get hold of the
beautification program or a local church or school and offer the rhizomes to
someone to come dig them up. The variety you have in the pictures are the
old fashioned ones called "Quanzo" which are what the other hybrids have
been bred from. If you drive along country roads around Atlanta, you'll see
these same daylilies growing literally in the ditches. which is why I called
them ditch lilies. Tough, they spread very well, and are great to plant on
slopes that are difficult to mow. You might even try swapping some rhizomes
of these with other daylilies. Try going to gardenweb.com and Georgia
gardening forum and see if you can make a swap with someone close. Good
luck to you.

thanks for the name - Quanzo - I hate the term 'ditch lilies' as it is
always used in a derogatory manner and I think these are wonderful
flowers. Big, colorful and carefree...

I will try gardenweb.com and see. Thanks!
