NDSU Daylily Garden Open House

NDSU Daylily Garden Open House

Red Resplendence daylily

NDSU-Department of Plant Sciences will host an open house to celebrate its historic daylily collection on July 29, 2013 from 9:00 a.m. to noon. The NDSU Daylily Garden is an official display garden of the American Hemerocallis Society and features over 1200 pre-1980 cultivars. This is the largest daylily planting at any land-grant university in the nation. The garden is located at the corner of 12th Avenue North and 18th Street. A brief presentation will take place at 10:00 a.m. to honor Mary Baker, former regional vice president of the American Hemerocallis Society. Ms. Baker was instrumental in saving the garden from being destroyed by construction and mounted a national letter-writing campaign that ultimately convinced former NDSU President Joseph Chapman to preserve this unique garden. Light refreshments will be provided. For more information, contact Esther McGinnis at 701-231-7406.
