The Connecticut Daylily Society (CDS) is a non-profit group of
perennial enthusiasts who meet several times a year to discuss our
favorite flower-- the daylily! We are affiliated with the
Hemerocallis Society, a national organization we urge all daylily
enthusiasts to join. Most of our meetings are held at the Avon Senior
Citizens complex (directions below).

We feature guest speakers from all over the country who speak on
daylily-related topics. Programs may include Power Point
presentations of the latest introductions, or other garden issues, such
as pests or fertilization techniques.

Daylilies are wonderful perennials! Here in Conn. We have varieties
that can start blooming in late May. Others will start in  August. Heights
can range from ten inches to over six feet! Flower size can vary from
an inch or two up to a foot or more. They are so diverse in their
attributes, so easy to care for, and incredibly beautiful, that no garden
should be without them.

Meetings are free and open to the public. A pot luck dish or desert is
encouraged. Come join us for a meeting to learn more-- and hear
some great speakers!
