CAMDEN — The Maine Daylily Society will host its annual Daylily Day, Saturday, July 25, at 9 a.m., at Merryspring Nature Center.
“Daylilies are blooming in colorful profusion at Merryspring!” said the Nature Center, in a news release.
Gardener and daylily hybridizer Susan Shaw will share how easy it is to create daylily varieties from seed on this walk through the Maine Daylily Society Display Garden, where some of her seedlings are now registered cultivars with the American Hemerocallis Society.
Not just orange or yellow anymore, daylilies come in many forms and colors, including spiders, ruffled bagels, picotees, and doubles. Miniatures to seven foot and taller, there are lots of earlier and later cultivars too, according to Merryspring. Divisions of blooming cultivars may be available to order.
“The Maine Daylily Society is committed to sharing a love for these carefree garden plants,” said the release.
This program is free to all. Guests are advised to wear face masks and follow safe social distancing guidelines.
Merryspring is your community nature center offering walking trails, cultivated gardens, wildlife, and ecology and horticulture educational programs all year round. The park is located at the end of Conway Road, just off of Route 1 in Camden behind Hannaford Shopping Plaza.
