    By far the best day lilies ever!!!!

    Judy Hildreth (verified owner)

    Although I only recently purchased these day lilies, I must state I am VERY impressed with them. Very healthy plants. The photos are how they look after less then a month in the ground. Can’t wait til they bloom. Definitely will purchase again!!

    Golden Prize is a "Must Have"

    Darlene Otwaska

    This daylily is a late season bloomer that is vivid in color. It grabs your attention when you survey the garden. Striking to say the least.

    A Golden Oldie

    Shirley Bryant (verified owner)

    I received this one from Oakes in the spring of 2017. It did not bloom last year, but bloomed for forty-one days this summer, today, Aug 24th being it’s last day. As it seems to be an older variety, I was taken by surprise by it’s wonderful branching and good bud count. Golden Prize has large, bright flowers and is a super season extender. Big thumbs up!

    Has to be my favorite of all

    Debby Hood (verified owner)

    This thing is like a beacon in the garden. It just keeps getting bigger and spreading and everybody wants a piece of it!
    A hot school bus yellow color & just brightens up everything. It gets extremely hot here but Golden Prize doesn’t wilt or seem too bothered.
    And my soil is poor so I am really happy

    Beautifil Color

    You just think things are yellow in your garden until this guy blooms. Then you see what real yellow is. Such a rich color and faint fragrance makes this a wonderful addition to the garden.

    A Splendid Daylily! This one came free for me, and I absolutely love it. The color and shape are exquisite. This is an odd year in terms of weather here in Chattanooga, and in early June most of my daylilies are finished! Golden Prize has been blooming profusely since early June (its first year), and it is about the only one still going. And I am thankful that it will have rebloom to stretch my blooming season longer. The color is almost identical to Mary’s Gold, which is nearby, though it is not QUITE as large. The one daylily in bloom yesterday on a gray, overcast day, it looked as lit up as if it were in sunshine. Wonderful for lifting my spirits.

    I am still having weird results from this plant. It’s stem is about 2 inches high. It is planted near other types that are full height. Gets morning shade from house, afternoon full sun. The flower looks like the catalog picture, but is it? This is the 3rd season for Golden Prize. I think I will move it this fall.

    This is a stunning daylily! In the morning the brilliant color is breathtaking! By dusk, the color has faded a small amount where it seems to glow in the gathering dark. Strong plant and blooms which stay beautiful all day even in our heat and humidity.

    WOW!!! This was my free plant, didn’t think it would be much. Planted it last summer and it bloomed. I was so wrong!! Neighbors would stop and ask me what kind of flower it was and tell me how beautiful it was. One of my favorites, the name is very fitting. The only thing is it did not rebloom for me last year that is why I did not give it a 10. Can’t wait to see it this year, hopefully it will rebloom. A must buy for your garden and you can’t beat the price!!

    Great daylily, but up north it blooms too late to get good rebloom. Nice late season bloom all the same.

    First year has huge sturdy glowing gold blooms. Have it in front of pines and it stops you cold when in bloom. It’s name is right.

    Wow! This is the prettiest in my garden so far! I planted 4 last year, and they have outdone themselves. I can’t wait to see them next year!

    Fantastic, large golden-yellow flowers that really stand out in the landscape. Excellent rebloom, even a third time. One of our favorite daylilies!!!

    This huge gold is such a bargain, worth every penny and more. Ours bloomed later, and rewarded us with glowing blooms when others were finished. Need to find a spot for this one.

    Very bright daylily! It looks great against my purple and pink daylilies. In my garden it is a little shorter and bloomed very late. Nice looking.

    I planted these in fall & spring and all plants bloomed beautifully, even in heavy clay, and after most of my other lillies were fading out. The flowers are a bright gold and nicely proprtioned to the plant. What a bargain!
