Our Mission

The Tallahassee Daylily Society is an organization dedicated to promoting the cultivation, hybridization, and exhibition of daylilies. We encourage and educate members and the public on the beauty, versatility, and value of daylilies as garden plants.

Driven by a passion for the beauty and diversity of daylilies, the Tallahassee Daylily Society is dedicated to cultivating a vibrant community of enthusiasts who share our love for these exquisite flowers. As proud members of the American Daylily Society and Florida’s Region 12, we strive to promote education, appreciation, and conservation of daylilies through outreach, events, and collaborative efforts.

Our mission is to foster a welcoming environment where members can learn, share knowledge, and celebrate the enduring charm of daylilies while contributing to their preservation for generations to come.

About Our Daylily Society

The Tallahassee Daylily Society (TDS) is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to the study, cultivation, and enjoyment of daylilies. TDS was organized in 1950.

They held their first show in 1953 with over 1,000 attendees coming through to look at the flowers. Tours of individual daylily gardens were also included when the club, early on, had daylily shows. They conducted adult and children flower arrangement competitions and had numerous flowers for display.

The Tallahassee Daylily Society hosted a National Daylily Convention including several tours to individual daylily gardens.

TDS has since grown to include members from all over the Tallahassee area who share a passion for these beautiful plants.

The TDS holds regular meetings and events throughout the year, including garden tours, plant sales, and educational seminars. Members also have the opportunity to participate in Regional and National Daylily shows and competitions. . . . (read more)
