Daylily Day – July 25
July 25th: 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Maine Daylily Society will host its annual Daylily Day at Merryspring Nature Center on Saturday, July 25 at 9:00 am.
Daylilies are blooming in colorful profusion at Merryspring! Gardener and daylily hybridizer Susan Shaw will share how easy it is to create daylily varieties from seed on this walk through the Maine Daylily Society Display Garden, where some of her seedlings are now registered cultivars with the American Hemerocallis Society. Not just orange or yellow anymore, daylilies come in many forms and colors, including spiders, ruffled bagels, picotees, and doubles. Miniatures to seven foot and taller, there are lots of earlier and later cultivars too. Divisions of blooming cultivars may be available to order.
The Maine Daylily Society is committed to sharing a love for these carefree garden plants.
This program is free to all. Guests are advised to wear face masks and follow safe social distancing guidelines.
