NDSU Horticulture Field Day Set for July 22

Daylilies

NDSU-Plant Sciences Department will host a horticulture field day on July 22, 2014 from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Festivities will begin at the NDSU Horticulture Research and Demonstration Gardens located at the corner of 12th Avenue North and 18th Street in Fargo. Tours will be conducted of the various gardens and of horticulture faculty research plots.

The NDSU Daylily Garden is an official display garden of the American Hemerocallis Society and features over 1400 daylily cultivars. “This is the largest public daylily collection in the nation,” says Esther McGinnis, Extension Service horticulturist and assistant professor. “The collection is truly a hidden treasure for our state.”

The field day will also feature the All-America Selections bedding plant display garden. “Walking through the gardens is an education and you can see which flowers perform well in our challenging North Dakota climate,” McGinnis says.

New this year, NDSU horticulture faculty will be on hand to offer tours of their campus plots demonstrating their research on raspberries, chokecherries, blackberries, grapes, vegetables, and turfgrass.

Light refreshments will be served.
