Jims Day Lilies

Jim and Joyce Shultz grow daylilies in upstate New York. While driving along a secondary highway, I came upon their lily farm because it sits right on the road. There is no way to miss it.The panorama picture above is one of several beautiful vistas of their lily fields. Naturally, as with all other amateur photos of gardens, these fields look much better when seen in person. There are many varieties of lilies to choose from as one meanders through the wide paths between the plantings. Individual cultivars are clearly identified by very large name boards that sit beneath each variety. If you plan to drive through upstate New York, it would be a worthwhile detour to visit this grower. Here are the coordinates:

Jim’s Day Lilies, 2213 Route 74,Ticonderoga, NY, 12883.    518-503-5065 jimslillyfarm@yahoo.com

I accessed this location from Interstate 87 at exit 28 where I picked up Route 74 towards Ticonderoga. Eastbound, it’s just past Eagle Lake, on the left side of the road.
