More about the garden:

Graziano Gardens is a daylily destination, nestled near artesian springs in the Pine River watershed. Several hundred different registered daylilies are planted extensively in the borders and in landscaping along with other perennials.

When Darrel Apps retired and Graziano Gardens became involved with displaying Apps’s recent registrations, he focused his hybridizing efforts on daylilies with rebloom and dormant foliage. The borders contain a wide variety of daylilies in many forms including double, minis, spiders, and patterns. Along with recent daylily registrations hybridized by Darrel Apps, the borders contain a wide selection of award-winning daylilies from other hybridizers and daylilies from App’s hybridizing days in New Jersery. Registered daylilies are displayed with their full-color benchcard giving all AHS registration information.

Statuary is displayed throughout the gardens. Other perennials, including shrubs and unusual perennials and natives along with “tried-and-true” perennials ideally suited for the central Wisconsin area add interest to the daylily borders as they bloom. This landscaping approach, coupled with the reblooming daylilies gives the borders a long period of interest from the beginning of July until into September.

Our part of central Wisconsin is known for its wonderful sandy beach lakes and trout streams. Nearby is the Springwater Volunteer Covered Bridge, erected in 1997 across the Pine River, on Covered Bridge Road, one mile west of Saxeville. Experience the calls of Sandhill Cranes, the screeches of eagles and hawks, and processions of turkeys on your drive to Graziano Gardens on Wisconsin’s Rustic Roads. It’s a not to be missed destination!
