There will be over 80 extraordinary daylilies available with prices ranging from a few dollars up to $100.00. This is a very fun event. I can see quilting patterns, handcrafts inspiration, and gardening delights in every one of these beauties

We show projected images of the daylilies, and a sheet of details about each daylily is handed out to each person attending. On this guide, everyone can learn the daylily name, date of registration with the American Hemerocallis Society, the hybridizers name, and specific details about each item to be auctioned.
