All About Daylilies


American Hemerocallis Society

Although the daylily has been in existence for centuries, it has only been since 1946 that a garden society was formed dedicated to the growth and hybridization of the genus hemerocallis, the DAYLILY. The AHS, American Hemerocallis Society, was formed in 1946 by Helen Field Fischer and the first meeting was held in Shenandoah, Iowa attended by 556 avid gardeners. The AHS is divided into 15 regions and continues to grow as interest in this delightful perennial spreads.
Official AHS Display gardens are available throughout each region. National and regional meetings, shows, symposiums, and conventions are held annually for the avid enthusiasts and offer an excellent opportunity to cultivate friendships based on a mutual interest. The AHS has many publications available on all aspects of growing, collecting, and hybridizing the daylily. Quarterly, AHS publishes The Daylily Journal which is informative, entertaining and a valuable asset to anyone interested in daylilies.
An AHS membership includes the quarterly Daylily Journal. If you would like to join - please contact Pat Mercer at or visit..
