INDIANA DAYLILY-IRIS SOCIETY (IDIS)
Non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of daylilies and iris
On our site you will find our calendar of events for this year, our newsletter, links to our national and regional societies, and links to local growers.
Please join us at our Daylily Show on Saturday, July 2, 1-4pm at
Sullivan Garden & Hardware Center, 6955 N Keystone, Indianapolis. It is
free and open to the public. Members will display their most prized
daylilies which will be judged by ADS accredited judges. Come visit with
us and view beautiful daylilies that are grown locally, ask questions,
learn about growing daylilies, and find out when and where to purchase
daylilies locally when the society holds its annual iris/daylily sale.
You're invited to join us at our next regularly scheduled meeting on
Tuesday, August 2, 6:30pm when Sandy Holmes from Riverbend Daylily
Garden, Xenia, OH presents "What's Happening at Riverbend Gardens".
Sandy, along with her husband, Mike, began Riverbend Garden in 1996
when they became backyard hybridizers. Over time they expanded their
garden and now raise 40,000 to 50,000 seedlings at any one time. They
grow and hybridize tetraploid daylilies, striving to introduce plants with
excellent plant habit and distinctive looks. Sandy's interests lie in
large unusual form daylilies while Mike prefers the rounder daylilies
with fancy edges. Sandy's introduction "I Lava You" won the Stout Medal
in 2020, the highest award given annually by the American Daylily Society.
Join us to hear of their latest hybridizing work.
