Our Mission

The North Florida Daylily Society (NFDS) is an organization dedicated to promoting the cultivation, hybridization, and exhibition of daylilies. Its mission is to encourage and educate members and the public on the beauty, versatility, and value of daylilies as garden plants.

The NFDS aims to advance the knowledge and understanding of daylilies, including their history, breeding, genetics, and cultural requirements. It also seeks to foster friendship and communication among daylily enthusiasts and to provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas.

The Daylily Society promotes the use of daylilies in the landscape, encourages the development of new and improved daylily cultivars, sponsors shows and other events to showcase the beauty and diversity of daylilies.

About Our Daylily Society

The North Florida Daylily Society (NFDS) is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to the study, cultivation, and enjoyment of daylilies. NFDS was organized on November 30, 1974.

The society has since grown to include members from all over the region who share a passion for these beautiful plants.

The NFDS holds regular meetings and events throughout the year, including garden tours, plant sales, and educational seminars. Members also have the opportunity to participate in regional and national daylily shows and competitions.
