As mentioned in Daylilly Daytrip #1, our website developer Jennifer recommended two excellent daylily flower farms, this one being the larger and the farthest, but she swears no one who likes florals would be disappointed. The drive is certainly scenic because Vermont itself is.
Among the things she recommended about Olallie Daylily Gardens is that they have a picnic area and that it was a delightful day out for her mother who uses a wheelchair, as their paths are wheel-friendly, with wide, neatly-cut grass paths. They have more than just daylilies, they ship all over the country and it’s big enough and spectacular enough so she felt it was well worth the drive.
I will say that as much as I love New Hampshire, particularly driving through the Monadnock Region, Vermont has its own personality and if you’re visiting here and have the kind of time that a daytrip like this would involve, you’d get to experience the flavors of two beautiful New England states.
