NDSU Horticulture Field Day Set for July 22

The field day also will feature the All-America Selections bedding plant display garden.

The North Dakota State University Plant Sciences Department will host a horticulture field day to celebrate its historic daylily collection on July 22 from 9 a.m. to noon.

The NDSU daylily garden is an official display garden of the American Hemerocallis Society and features more than 1,400 daylily cultivars.

“This is the largest public daylily collection in the nation,” says Esther McGinnis, NDSU Extension Service horticulturist and assistant professor. “The collection is truly a hidden treasure for our state.”

The garden is part of the NDSU Horticulture Research and Demonstration Gardens at the corner of 12th Avenue and 18th Street North.

The field day also will 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.

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