Take the Knoxville Center exit off I-640 (formerly the East Towne Mall Exit), go north onto Washington Pike 10 miles. Turn left onto Corryton Rd., go 2 miles and turn right onto Monday Rd., 1/4 mile to the garden.

Another route from Knoxville is to take I-40 East to the Rutledge Pike exit (Exit 392). Go right (north) 8 miles and turn left onto Roberts Rd.

Last year the temperatures were triple digits. I’m glad the weather forecast is upper 80s for Friday. I'll be there!

My husband and I went to Oakes Daylily farm a couple of weeks ago and purchased 12 healthy, gorgeous daylily plants. They are thriving in our yard with beautiful blooms. The variety is overwhelming. Definitely recommend a visit.
