About the Club
Realizing the desire for a local daylily club in the midlands of South Carolina, Peggy and Jim Jeffcoat sent out written invitations to all know interested persons in the midlands of South Carolina, inviting them to a meeting on April 5, 1987. Twenty-five persons responded and gathered to discuss the possibility of organizing a local club at Clemson Sandhills Research and Education Center in northeast Columbia, SC. Peggy led the group, reporting that there had been a South Carolina Hemerocallis Society which was founded in 1953 and had been supported by the late Charlotte Holman, Loy Singletary and Laura Sims. That organization had not been active for a good many years. Peggy asked if the group would like to reorganize the old society or start a new club. The group was indeed interested in forming a club to promote daylilies and unanimously voted to organize a new new club choosing the name Mid-Carolina Daylily Society.

Featured Quote
There are many tired gardeners but Iíve seldom met old gardeners. I know many elderly gardeners but the majority are young at heart. Gardening simply does not allow one to be mentally old, because too many hopes and dreams are yet to be realized. The one absolute of gardeners is faith. Regardless of how bad past gardens have been, every gardener believes that next yearís will be better. It is easy to age when there is nothing to believe in, nothing to hope for; gardeners, however, simply refuse to grow up. Thomas Jefferson said once, "Though an old man, I am but a young gardener" --- Allan Armitage
