You can earn big money selling daylilies. Daylilies are perennial plants that returns year after year and their fans double every year. A daylily is made up of many fans. A fan, if divided from the plant is an entirely new plant in itself. It doesn’t take very much math to figure out how to earn big money with this plant. The botanical name for a daylily is Hemerocallis. I started with just a few and ended up with over 100 varieties. If you get as excited about them as I did, selling them just makes sense. You’ll find how to find the right varieties to sell, how to sell them, where to sell them, how to plant and grow them and how to ship. Each variety blooms at a different time. Most bloom in the North of the US from May to September. The biggest bloom period is in July.

At that time you’ll see a sea of blooms. Daylilies can be grown in the southern states. Due to the milder weather, they grow faster there. There are also varieties available that are gorgeous that are hardy only in those zones. Most of the early varieties will be yellow in color. There are late varieties, but you won’t find as many of these available. Mid season bloomers are the most common. There is a daylily available for every spot in the garden. You can find one in every height and color, so you can find one that will work anywhere in the flower bed. Some are only 8 inches tall. A few grow as tall as 3 feet. How Much Money Can You Make? Most of the information I’ve learned about selling daylilies was shared with me by the Daylily King. He was willing to share all of the information he knew. If you’d like to learn more about him visit the article The Daylily King and How to Become a Millionaire Selling Daylilies. There you will learn how it is possible to earn good money selling them.

All of the math is included to show you that you can make a good profit. 6000 in a 16 foot x 12 foot bed. When I purchased the daylilies from the Daylily King, he had 2 1/2 acres of ground that he used. 10,000 a year, 7 years ago. 5.00 each. This is a more reasonable price and he should be earning more money now. 7.00 each, but at least 2 fans are included. They are more if the plants are larger. The price is for plants that aren’t newer or unusual. Those are sold for more. If you’d like to sell daylilies you have several choices to make. Do you want to invest a lot of money on newer varieties or less money purchasing older varieties? The newer ones will sell for more money when you divide the plants. The older varieties will sell for less, but you don’t have as much money invested. Doubles and spiders sell well.

It is a good idea to invest in some of these. Those with double blooms, are considered special too. Other daylilies have extended bloom and some rebloom. Watch for daylilies that have heavy branching. They have more bloom. If you are selling in person, plants that are blooming are the ones that sell. Some daylilies grow faster than others. Watch for these. It means the plant will make fans faster and that means more profit. The newer varieties sell best at places like eBay and The Lily Auction. I think you’ll be shocked by prices for newer daylilies. Several hundred dollars isn’t out of the question for the newest ones. Another decision you will need to make, is how much money do I need to earn? This will be determined by how much space you have and how hard you want to work marketing them. If you have a few acres of ground, you can earn better money than someone growing them in their gardens. You can try eBay or The Lily auction, but there are many local sellers. I prefer purchasing the dayliies locally.
