Nova Scotia Daylily Society

The Nova Scotia Daylily Society (NSDS) is a member club of the American Hemerocallis Society(AHS), and is in Region 4 of AHS. We are also a member of the Nova Scotia Association of Garden Clubs (NSAGC).

Our meetings are held at the First United Baptist Church, 1839 Hammonds Plains Road!

It only costs $10 to join our club and guests are always welcome!

Please note that there are no planned meetings

Our hall on Hammond Plains road is not open for business. For that matter our club remains in “stand by” mode awaiting for this worldwide pandemic to end, for the Province to once again open for business, and for the wearing of a mask to be a thing of the past.

In dialogue with my fellow Executive, we have agreed that there is no logical rush to get the club back together. There are no pressing issues before us and it is far more reasonable to exercise caution and care than to rush to meet just for the sake of meeting.

The current executive has agreed to stay on for another twelve months unless a member feels the need for us to hold an extraordinary meeting to have an election. I might point out that we could consider a mail in ballot style election or an email ballot style election. Both would be outside of what we have done in the past, but of course these are different times.

I would invite you then, if you feel the need for an election, that you send me a note by email outlining your concerns or points of view towards holding an election now rather than accepting the recommendation of remaining status quo for an additional twelve months.

I do hope that each one of you and your families is safe during these times. I hope that your garden was everything you had hoped it to be this summer and that soon, very soon, we will once again to share our smiling faces with each other and talk - Daylily.

The daylily is "the perfect perennial", due to the beautiful colours, its ruggedness and ability to tolerate drought and frost. It can adapt to wide range of soil conditions as well!

A daylily is a flowering perennial plant in the genus Hemerocallis, whose name came from the Greek Word ἡμέρα (hēmera) "day" and καλός (kalos) "beautiful". The flowers typically last no more than 24 hours! Typically they open early in the morning and wither during the following night. But some of the newer varieties have flowers that open in the evening and remain open until the evening of the following day
