In an approved Display Garden, a visitor can view a large number and wide variety of labeled daylilies in a well-maintained garden setting. To obtain official Display Garden status, certain criteria must be met:

  • The owner or public garden liaison must be a member for two years or more, and must maintain his or her membership in good standing, to be eligible for a garden to be designated as either a Display Garden, an Historical Daylily Display Garden, or both.
  • The garden must be well maintained (i.e., water, fertilizer, mulch, etc.) and relatively free of weeds.
  • Plant markers should be maintained in good condition, with the name of both the cultivar and the hybridizer showing clearly. Date of registration is often included on the marker as well, and must be included on the historical plant marker.
  • Historical  daylilies are defined as all daylily species plus daylily cultivars registered on or before 1990. Gardens must contain a representative collection of historical daylilies. A minimum of 50 cultivars registered in, or prior to, 1990 is the main requirement to qualify as an Historical Daylily Display Garden.  For more information on becoming a Historical Daylily Display Garden, you can find it here: https://daylilies.org/get-involved/about-display-gardens/
  • The garden should be open to the public during bloom season. The American Daylily Society’s insurance policy does not include Display Garden visitation. Garden owners are encouraged to carry their own insurance.
  • Commercial gardens are requested to maintain a specific area designated as a Display Garden.
  • By early September of each year, Display Garden owners will be notified about renewing their status.  Forms must be mailed or submitted online by October 1.

To be added to the list of official Display Gardens and/or Historical Daylily Display Gardens, the qualifying garden must be inspected and approved by the appropriate Regional President (RP) or their designated representative and recommended to the Display Garden Chairman.

To be removed from the list of Display Gardens and/or Historical Daylily Display Gardens, a request should be made by the garden owner (or, if a public garden, the garden liaison person) by contacting the appropriate RP who should then forward the request to the Display Garden Chairman.

Where can you see daylilies?

An American Daylily Society Display Garden is established to display the very best daylily cultivars to the general public. Its purpose is to educate the visitor about modern daylilies and how they can be used effectively in landscapes. Our interactive map can be used to plan your next daylily adventure.
