Heavenly Flight, Gossard, 2003

Our club is a great place to learn about daylilies and gardening.  We have regular meetings with speakers, plant auctions, plant sales, bus trips, parties and other events.  We meet at the Franklin Park Conservatory and have our own daylily gardens on the property.

We are affiliated with the American Hemerocallis Society (AHS) and AHS Region 2. Check out these links to learn about the Society and Regional Activities.

The AHS has a membership portal.  This portal allows you to create your own profile, connect with AHS members around the world, participate in forums and blogs or explore photo albums and Regional and other group areas. Visit the AHS Membership Portal


February 8 Meeting:  We had a great meeting and member plant sale in the Franklin Park conservatory!  David Jewlel made an excellent presentation on his Ontario hybridizing program.  See photos below.
