with mak lilies there is a price break at 25, 50, 100 and 200. mak lilies has some varieties not at sunshine. but the ones that both have ......sunshine is cheaper. and they have more choices.

one option is to buy from both so we could get some of mak's special lilies. and only include the special ones on the buy.

either way yall get to pick who and what to buy. so lmk.

I have been kicking around who to use as vendor and when to do this. do yall want to order early...........say in nov. or do you want to order in jan.? either way we'll get spring del.

also there is ednie's but a few folks wanted to try a more exclusive vendor. who are most of you interested in?

suggested vendors

I will go with what ever the group wants to do.
I have this theory that chocolate slows down the aging process.... It may not be true, but do I dare take the chance?

Andy from Sunshine Flower Bulbs is an excellent vendor for lilies. I participated on a lily co-op from the other site last spring where he was the vendor. 50 people or so participated and most if not all agreed his bulbs were of top quality with rock bottom prices. Those who participated got nothing to say but positive remarks. Him and his company even did all the hard work by directly shipping the bulbs to each individual participants.
I myself ordered around 150 bulbs. Shipping to me was only like $10 for those 150 bulbs as he charge a flat rate regardless of the quantity and weight of your package.
The greater the quantity you order from him as co-op collectively, a bulb may cost you as low as 59 cents each.
He is very co-op friendly, but you guys may have to act fast as his bulbs go fast.

Here is his link:

The lilies you see in the photo below I got from him which I planted last spring.

Wait, SUSAN should be aware of Sunshine Flower Bulb as she was the one who did the spreadsheet and as usual collected the payments. Rolling my eyes.

Well, whoever you end up going through, this is one I'll participate in for sure.
Can never have too many lilies. Hilarious!

I remember partaking in a co-op at Dave's one year in a co-op from Wooden Shoe Bulb Farm. They had a very large variety and good prices.

I would be interested and prefer to wait until Jan. Sunshine Flower Bulbs looks pretty good.
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

I'll go with whoever you folks decide on. I've never participated on one before so I have no experience with different venders. Alwys bought from catalogs or big box store. I do know I want some Mona Lisa and other oriental lilies. No a large number tho. A neighbor may go in with me.When we get them doesn't matter to me as long as they bloom next summer.

sunshine sells ednie's bulbs. and andy with sunshine says he can get the bulbs cheaper than we can if we buy direct. because he buys so many at once. so if we buy ednie's we will go thru sunshine most likely.

i forget who it was but they also suggested another vendor from the pnw i believe. i have to go read again who the vendor was. but this vendor was also a hybridizer and they grow all their own bulbs i understand. the lilies would prob. be more expensive than ednie's. but they also had lilies that were exclusive to them i think.

and we could buy from both. whatever yall decide.

A good example is the best sermon.
I'm really interested in participating, since I don't have near enough lilies!

Hopefully, they'll be delivered this Fall, so they'll have sufficient to get settled into their new homes before Winter.


Oops, I shouldn't have speed read the intro. Spring delivery will be fine;but, like Leaf, I sure want them to bloom next year! Will we be getting #1 size bulbs?

This year my lilies from Sunshine Flower Bulb arrived in mid-April and all bloomed. The later ones are blooming right now. They were huge, healthy bulbs and should multiply rapidly. I probably don't need any more lilies, but that doesn't mean I won't order any. Rolling on the floor laughing

Forgive me if I sound dumb, but I didn't see any Day Lilies on the linked site.

Are our only choices Orientals and Asiatics?

Daylilies aren't the same as Lilies. Completely different plant. Lilies- Liliums are the true lilies and are grown from bulbs. Daylilies -Hemerocallis is a perennial plant grown from roots.

Mama, the lily grower in the PNW is The Lily Garden
I'm only about 40 miles north of them.

It seems there are a better selection of lilies available for spring planting then there is for fall planting. Every lily I've ever planted in the spring bloomed the same summer. I'd prefer spring delivery simply because we'd have a larger variety to choose from.

mine all bloom the same spring but sometimes they are somewhat stunted looking the first year. the next year they are good to go though.

i really wanted a jan. ship date but i know i am the only one. one of these days though i hope to talk more of you into earlier ship dates.

sasha..........if you are wanting daylilies why don't you try the daylily site over here at cubits? they have a classified section. also i know new york has a daylily classifieds in her cubits. plus daves garden has dl listings in their classifieds from time to time.
