June is a very busy month for us, as we revert back to our standard Saturday 10am meeting times, and begin to think about our annual show, sale, and garden tours.

We had a terrific grooming clinic, and very successful tour. Now it's time to say "On with the Show!"

Friday, June 17 -- Work Day. It takes a lot of preparation to have a successful show. Help us set up the show/sale area (and earn MARS points!).

Saturday, June 18 -- It's SHOWTIME! This year's show and plant sale is at the Stiles Auditorium, where we hold our meetings. If you're entering, click here for the Show Schedule (PDF file).

* Show entries MUST be on the classification table by 930am.
* Plant sale starts at 10am outside the building, and
* Show is open to the public from 1-3pm.

July 23 is our annual, and very popular ICE CREAM SOCIAL meeting. Scott Elliott will join us this year as a special speaker.

August 27 will be our MARS auction/covered dish meal. Yes, you read that correctly. We're doing the MARS auction in AUGUST, this year. Track those points! Take home "free" daylilies!

September 24th takes us away from Stiles Auditorium and back to the beauty of Shady Rest Gardens for our annual Hypertufa clinic.

And we wrap up a wonderful 2016 on October 22 at our last meeting of the year.




Why daylilies?

Of all the plants available to grow in Georgia, what makes daylilies so special?

I'm confident every member of NWGDS would give you a different reason for why daylilies are special to him or her. Some would say the plant will live through anything, others that the hybridizing challenges give them a reason to get out of bed every day, and still others might say they just like to look at the pretty flowers.

Whatever the reason, daylilies grow in peoples' hearts as well as their gardens, and once a person is bitten by the daylily bug, they're never the same.
