About North Florida Daylily Society
The North Florida Daylily Society 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.
The NF Daylily Society is affiliated with the American Hemerocallis Society (AHS), which is the national organization for daylily enthusiasts. As a result, NFDS members have access to a wealth of resources and information about daylilies, including the latest hybridization techniques and cultivar releases.
In addition to promoting daylilies, the NFDS is also committed to conservation and education. The society has a program that encourages members to plant daylilies in public spaces, such as parks and schoolyards, as a way of beautifying the community and promoting environmental stewardship.
One of the main goals of the NF Daylily Society is to promote the use of daylilies in landscaping and gardening. Members share their expertise and experiences with each other, as well as with the broader community, to help people learn how to grow and care for daylilies in their own gardens.
The society also serves as a forum for daylily enthusiasts to exchange ideas and information about hybridizing, propagation, and other aspects of daylily culture. Members have access to a variety of resources, including a library of books and articles on daylilies, as well as a network of fellow daylily enthusiasts who can provide advice and support.
Overall, the NF Daylily Society is a vibrant and active community of welcoming daylily enthusiasts who are passionate about sharing their knowledge and love of these beautiful flowers with others and who are committed to promoting their beauty and diversity.
The club, North Florida Daylily Society was organized on November 30, 1974. The North Florida Daylily Society (NF Daylily Society) is a non-profit organization based in North Florida that is dedicated to the study, cultivation, and enjoyment of daylilies. During the first few years, several members were extremely instrumental in creating policy and building stability. A few of those members were: Ben and Clovette Adams, Ed Brown, Joe and Chris Bumgardner, Anna Cruel, Keith and Sylvia Lunsford, Jack May, Bob and Gail Reese, Bob and Mary Frances Ruff, Vi Simmons, Dave Talbott, Bob and Margaret Tucker, and Frank and Agnes Teele. The society has since grown to include members from all over the region who share a passion for these beautiful plants.
