About CDS

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 American Hemerocallis Society, a national organization we urge all daylily enthusiasts to join. Most of our meetings are held at the Avon Senior Center (see directions page), and are free of charge and open to the public.

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. Generally, our meetings begin at noon with a potluck buffet, and our guest speaker takes the stage at 1 pm. We often have a daylily auction following the program, so bring your checkbook in case you see something you simply must have. Additionally, we award plenty of fabulous daylily door prizes at each meeting, so stop by and see if you’re a lucky winner!

Daylilies are wonderful perennials! Here in CT 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 so incredibly beautiful, no garden should be without them.
