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 Hemerocallis Society (AHS). For more information, visit AHS and for membership information, click here.  An online database of the 89,000 daylily cultivars is also maintained by AHS. This database is very useful to daylily enthusiasts. 

AHS 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 or events from January through June of each year. Meetings are held on the second Sunday (January through April) 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. Come visit us!

You can also visit us on Facebook by searching for North Florida Daylily Society.
