Love daylilies?

We do, too!

At North Florida Daylily Society, our members collect daylilies from every color of the rainbow, in all shapes, small and large, ruffled and fringed.

HIERARCHY OF U.S. DAYLILY SOCIETIES

The national association for daylilies in the United States is the American Daylily Society (ADS) which was formerly known as the American Hemerocallis Society. For more information, visit them here. Their online database of 89,000 daylily cultivars is very useful to daylily enthusiasts. 

ADS has fifteen regions in the United States. The State of Florida is Region 12.

At the local level, the North Florida Daylily Society represents Jacksonville and surrounding areas.



NORTH FLORIDA DAYLILY SOCIETY MEETINGS AND EVENTS

We host monthly meetings from January through June, September and October of each year. Meetings are held on the second Sunday at 2:15 p.m. at the Orange Park Library, 2054 Plainfield Avenue (one block from U.S. 17 on Kingsley Avenue), Orange Park, Florida. Speakers from surrounding daylily farms often bring daylilies to auction off among our members. This allows our members to acquire more expensive daylilies at affordable prices. We also hold a raffle for pass-along plants brought in by members. 

We also have two major events each year — a Daylily Show & Sale and a buying trip.

Come visit us at a meeting or on Facebook by searching for North Florida Daylily Society.
