About Us

Dixie Lily Nursery was named by Mary Mikell who inspired me with gardening at a very early age and continued to develop my interest in plants throughout the years. She had been an active gardener throughout her life and dearly loved being out in the garden with her daylilies. In 2010, Mama passed after a long illness. We miss her dearly.

In keeping with Mama's dream, my wife and I continue to operate the business, grow and hybridize daylilies. Growing daylilies is a labor of love and patience. These tough and hardy plants have become our passion. As we await that first scape and first bloom of the year they reward us with beautiful, lush great foliage that drapes gracefully in the beds.
When that first bloom opens you know the show is about to begin.

Thanks for visiting.
