Plant Sale

CDS hosts an annual May plant sale at the Avon Senior Center. Our plants are member-grown, freshly dug, bare-root, hardy to our area, and very reasonably priced. This yearly event is a Farmington Valley fixture, with many CT residents making the trip every spring to see what new and exciting plants await them! Big, small, ruffled, spidery, doubled, eyed, patterned–you name it, we’ve got it! Our sale runs from 10 am to 2 pm, and early birds get the best selection. We give bonus plants with every purchase, and often have a mix of hardy perennials available for sale as well!

Our members are always ready and willing to answer your daylily questions! Check our Event Schedule page for exact sale date, and then mark your calendar for a fantastic daylily day!


Are you a CDS member who would like to downsize some of your big daylily clumps and make a little money? Half of our sale proceeds go to fund our club’s excellent educational programs and speakers, but donors get the other half of their plant’s earnings!

Cheryl Fox keeps our supply of plant tags and brings the roll to meetings leading up to our sale. We want only named varieties in blooming-size double fans, tagged in this manner:

We love to offer variety to our customers, so please consider bringing some plants to the sale, especially if you’ve never done it before! It’s a great way to make a little cash to spend on…what else, but more daylilies!?
