Featured Club Meeting

The Raleigh Daylily Club welcomes new and current members, as well as vistors to join us for a very special guest for our last meeting of the year, Tuesday, October 14.

Daylilies will be front and center for this meeting as we host the very well known and award winning hybridizer, Dan Trimmer, propritor of Watermill Daylily Garden. Dan, and his wife Jane, have been hybridizing for about 15 years, after moving south from Long island NY, where they started this journey. They work with various forms with much recent success in the area of patterns. They are near or at the top of everyone's list of favorite hybridizers. Everyone is welcome and visitors from around the region are encouraged. Dan will be bringing some of their plants for an auction that will be held at the end of the meeting. The doors open at 6:45 for visiting, with the meeting starting at 7:15, at our normal meeting location, Powell Drive Community Center.
