But we can’t forget the main attraction, the daylilies!

The Daylily Festival is a 10 day festival this year, and it’s full of all sorts of things!

The main thing it’s full of is daylilies.
Daylilies are wonderful plants, they’re beautiful, easy to take care of and everyone should have many of them.
We have a daylily sale on Saturday, the 29th, we’ll have various daylilies available.
We have some of them that are dug and potted, but the main way is to come and see what we have here in the garden.
If you like it, you can dig it yourself and take home a nice clump for…this garden is $15, we have another garden that is $10.
It’s a wonderful opportunity to get some really great daylilies because most all of them are named daylilies, although some of them are seedlings also that have never been seen by anyone before.
They’ll actually be blooming through the middle of July, so if you come anytime, as long as they’re blooming and you like them, take them home.

There are fun things to do every day among the daylilies—and the other gorgeous greenery.

Sunday will be the Cruise In (car show) –Anything Goes– Alongside Daylilies,

Tuesday they’ll have Photography in the Garden and a Lunch — Listen and Learn Lecture, and it all ends Saturday when you can dig up your own daylily clump to take home!
