Pinewood Gardens is the daylily garden of Phil and Luella Korth. We are located in northeast Wisconsin in a zone 4 climate. Pinewood Gardens is a licensed nursery specializing in hardy northern daylilies. Our daylilies have to survive winters down to† -20 degrees often with little snow. We also have cold spring weather, late frosts and cool summer nights. Only a few daylilies thrive in our climate.

†We have been hybridizing tetraploid daylilies for 16 and diploid daylilies for 12 years. Our goal is to develop high performance daylilies for northern gardens. The key characteristics that are important to us are: hardiness, consistent opening and beautiful faces. 

†This year we have 13 new introductions for sale and one introduction available only to guests of the Region 2 meeting (see below).† Due to our short growing season, we cannot grow our plants quickly to produce large numbers of each cultivar.† As a result, our new introductions are very limited in number and in 2013, many of our plants sold out quickly.† Please order early to make sure you can obtain the plants you want.†

Our local daylily club - Bay Area Daylily Buds (BAD Buds) - will be hosting the 2014 Region 2 meeting July 25 - 27.† Pinewood Gardens will be one of the tour gardens.† We have also introduced a daylily that has the same name as the meeting theme - "Beauty by the Bay".† If all goes according to plan, each guest unit (single or couple) will receive a Beauty by the Bay daylily.† See photo and description under the 2014 introductions.† We hope you can join us and enjoy peak bloom season here in northeast Wisconsin.
