ROCKPORT — The Maine Daylily Society will host its annual Daylily Day at Merryspring Nature Center Thursday, July 21, at 9 a.m.

Daylilies are blooming in colorful profusion at Merryspring. 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 plants are 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. Ranging in size from miniature lilies to plants nearing seven feet tall, there are plenty of varied and exciting cultivars on display. Divisions of blooming cultivars may be available to order.

The Maine Daylily Society is committed to sharing a love for these carefree garden plants.

The park is located at the end of Conway Road, just off of Route 1 in Camden behind Hannaford Shopping Plaza. For more information on this program, contact or call 207-236-2239.
