Ozark Daylily Society June 2012 Newsletter
June activities and notes:
Daylily Display (with some sales) Sunday, June 24:
We have scheduled our Daylily Display for Sunday, June 24th, from 11am to 3 pm at the Botanical Center, 2400 S. Scenic, Springfield. Five club members who displayed daylilies last year plan to provide blooms again this year. We encourage other members to also display their blooms. If you are interested in doing so, they must be named daylilies and we will provide you with the holders for your blooms. We realize you won’t know the specific flowers that will be in bloom until the 23 or 24th. But please let us know by return email if you wish to display daylilies and we will arrange to get you materials (firstname.lastname@example.org, or 417-773-4100).
Even if you do not plan to display daylilies, we encourage you to attend the display on Sunday, June 24th. In addition to the display, we will also be selling no name daylily clumps for $8 a clump from the garden. So we will need help with digging. Please let all you friends know of our display and sale.
April Program Report:
Our April 14th meeting featured a program by Dr. Clydette Alsup-Egbers; Associate Professor of Horticulture, Missouri State University about tissue culture regarding creating new daylilies. Very interesting information was provided.
Daylily Beds at the Botanical Center (Close Memorial Park):
If you haven’t been out to the Daylily Beds, they are just magnificent this year. The colors are amazing and we are getting wonderful comments from everyone who comes to the garden. Thanks to Cindy, Frieda, Gary, Gail, May, and Walt and Bev for their work on the beds. We have them in pretty good condition this year. As always members are welcome to work independently at the gardens weeding and dead heading the daylilies
Daylily Sale, July 21st:
Our official sale this year will be in conjunction with the Butterfly Festival July 21st. Please plan to work that day or help with the preparations of the dayliles earlier in the week. And start letting others know about the sale so they can plan to attend and buy some day lilies. We will be providing more information about the sale as we get closer to the date.
