    Sheila, Hello! It's been a while! :) Yes, I know daylilies are rock solid tough enough to ship overseas and shouldn't have a problem (I have shipped to Canada years ago - it's the same process). However, the process getting it all done and worked out thru the State Inspections Department is the challenging thing here for a single order. I'd have to allow nearly half a day off work in order to work with the state inspections guy to come and inspect the flowers etc.. And then there's the chance that something bad may happen after dealing with all the red-tape! It's simply a process I am not so willing to deal with these days as my small business endeavors make it difficult to take so much time out for a single order. It would work better for processing bulk orders for more than one overseas customer! Lost shipments is the most worrisome thing here! - Thanks! :)

    Hey Brad---was here gathering your article and noticed Brian's comment about shipping to Australia. I don't know about the customs and what-not, but when we get saplings shipped to us their bare roots are wrapped in plastic with those water crystals that store water, Miracle Grow makes them--probably some others. We got some saps last month while they're dormant and then they stayed on the porch for about 2 weeks...I forgot about them during the Holidays. :blush: The crystals were still moist and the roots and tops were fine! I thought they would be the perfect answer to shipping daylilies overseas when you don't know how long it would take to reach the customer. After all, daylilies are one of the toughest plants out there! I bet they'd be fine if you were to use some of those and wrap only the roots in plastic for overseas shipping. Most likely the fans would turn yellow and probably suffer but once they're planted and putting on new growth I'm sure they'd be fine.

    I think it's worth a try.

    Just trying to help! Thought it would be wonderful to see your babies growing way over yonder! :woohoo:

    Maybe you could try shipping just one first and see how it does? That way it wouldn't be such a great loss to them if the one doesn't make it. Maybe ship just Michael's Sword at regular price. I know, I'm always thinking--can't turn it off sometimes! :blink:
