Winners of the Drawing at our Grand Opening

The Grand Opening was a great success and everyone seemed to enjoy the day. The weather was just about perfect, the live music was nice, and the food was nice.

We had about 50 people come by and most left with some daylilies! Since then, we have had a simple flow of new customers come by – most of whom just followed our yard signs. Considering our remote location, that is pretty good.

Thanks to everyone who came by and to everyone who helped make the day so successful.

Now, the winners were….. (drum roll, please….)

Third Place (mouse pad with one of our daylilies pictured)

  • Margie Evans
  • Judy Rester

And, our First Place prize (most expensive plant on the property, Hemerocallis ‘Long Jacket’) went to…

200, Long Jacket

  • Ellie Scioneaux

Congratulations to all our winners and to those who took advantage of the special pricing that we offered. I trust that your daylilies are already in the ground and will be blooming soon!

We welcome you to just come and visit
 and relax in one of the most calming surroundings I know. One of our neighbors has horses, another has cows, all are quiet, peace loving, and God fearing friends!

God has truly blessed Viv and me to allow us to live in such an idyllic setting. And we would love to meet you, and share this lovely environment with you, and help you unwind. Here’s to new friendships!!

Hope to see you soon,
Ray and Viv Waldo

Note: All the flowers pictured on this page are actually blooming now (2nd week of April). It is difficult to predict which flowers will be blooming on our opening day, but since it will be during the peak of daylily FDV 126 blooming season, we expect to have hundreds of (different) blooms!

* Only heavy rains (or similar catastrophe) will cause us to cancel this event.

Springtime is Daylily Time!

FDV 383


Springtime is such an exciting time at Fleurs de Viv! Each morning, I can hardly wait to go outside and see all the new blooms.

I will be publishing bloom photos of all of the NEW plants as they begin to bloom. Each article on the social media sites will include a short description and the photo. Click through to the website to view the entire post.

Everyday now, we have 6-8 new daylily varieties (all Extra Early) come into bloom! Since I bought out another breeder’s stock last year, I have not seen any of these early plants in bloom – so it is extra exciting! The hard work is entering all the data into the website and preparing for sale.

If you are reading on Facebook, be sure to LIKE and FOLLOW our page ( Same for Google+ ( and Twitter (

But the best option is to subscribe to our website ( The option is in the sidebar (or at the bottom on mobile devices.) You will receive an email with a link each time we post an article or photo. Easy!

Until next time,


BTW, the flower is “FDV Pure Passion”, 383. You can see its page here:

First Daylily 2017

first daylily bloom of 2017

We have liftoff!

first daylily bloom of 2017This is our first daylily bloom of the 2017 season! It may be a “common” yellow daylily but it has great significance to us, since it marks the beginning of this season.

We have been very busy recently. I am still in the process of inputting all the data and photos of our plants into the website & catalog.

Also, we have been mulching all the beds (both daylily and others). It is a lot of work but we expect great returns in the form of BEAUTIFUL blooms!

Consider adding your email address to our “Subscribe” form on the front page. That way, you will get an email notice when we post new articles or have specials, etc.
