Digging in the garden: As our growing fields are in a different location, we are not able to dig plants for our garden visitors. You can, however, call ahead and have an order ready to pick up.

Oakes Daylily Bloom FestivalGroup visits: Garden clubs, daylily clubs and groups of friends and family are all especially welcome to come visit. We can give tours and speeches - please call ahead so we'll know you are coming. Also, large groups may want to inquire about visiting on days other than our normal open garden days so that we will have plenty of time to spend with you.


Where to Stay: We have arranged for a special rate of $79/night at the Fairfield Inn Knoxville East (1551 Cracker Barrel Lane) for the days around the Festival. Ask for the Daylily Festival rate when you call — (865) 971-4033.
