What is the American Daylily Society?

Founded in '46

The American Daylily Society (also known as the American Hemerocallis Society, Inc. ) is a non-profit service organization dedicated to educating people about daylilies, promoting the cultivation and enjoyment of daylilies, and fostering the on-going improvement of this perennial flower (genus hemerocallis). Our membership includes over 5,000 avid gardeners and daylily enthusiasts from all over the world.

Our Mission


The American Daylily Society exists to educate people about daylilies, promote the cultivation and enjoyment of daylilies and foster the on-going improvement of this perennial flower (genus hemerocallis). We accomplish this mission through the dedicated efforts of all our volunteers, members, local clubs and staff who are committed to the continuous improvement of our efforts to build support for the cultivation and appreciation of daylilies.

There are several wonderful perks to becoming a member of the American Daylily Society:

Older issues of the Journal, as well as other Daylily Society publications, may be purchased by clicking here. Many of our superb daylily publications are also available on Amazon.
  • Receipt of Regional Newsletters. Check out the area map and find a local daylily club to join in your Region and receive information on local and Regional meetings and other daylily related articles.
  • Opportunities to attend national conventions which include lots of opportunities to network with other daylily lovers while learning through lectures, clinics, workshops, and garden tours.
  • Opportunity to exhibit at Daylily Society accredited flower shows during bloom season. Contact the Region’s website for times and locations of these events.
  • Access to an active Facebook page.
  • Participate in an E-mail Round Robin where you have the opportunity to ask questions and get answers from daylily lovers, such as yourself, from within our membership network.
