Upcoming Public Event - March 3rd & 4th - Maryland Home & Garden Show
Welcome to the Free State Daylily Society
Serving Maryland and surrounding states, Free State Daylily Society (FSDS) is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to share our experience and enthusiasm with interested gardeners, regarding the cultivation, display, and hybridization of the genus hemerocallis, also known as daylily.
Membership is open at all times, we always welcome those interested in learning and sharing their insight. Membership benefits include our traditional Club sponsored daylily purchase, where the members choose their favorite newly developed plants - the club purchases these plants, with a value up to $150. The member then grows each selection for two years, in order for the plant to develop further. The member then returns the selection for the Club to sell or auction at our Annual Sale Event. The member is allowed to keep a single fan of the plant they selected EVERY YEAR, as long as the member is a participating club representative. Think about this for a moment, become a member for a nominal fee, participate in four club activities for each year - then you pick a cultivar valued at up to $150.00 and it's yours! Where else can you get a return on your investment for so little, a huge bonus is the knowledge and camaraderie gained as we grow.
The premier Maryland Daylily Grower & Hybridizer Organization devoted to sharing the knowledge, joy, & beauty we have found in this diverse species.
