February-April 2014

Chad Bush will visit the GVDS at
7:00 pm in the lower level of Frederik
Meijer Gardens
on November 6th.
Chad is a young Michigan hybridizer
whose name will become more well-
known as time goes on because he is
doing some beautiful work with
daylilies. He started his interest in
gardening at a young age. He has been
growing daylilies for over 15 years and
the hybridizing bug hit about 12 years
ago. He likes the idea of being able to
create something new and be
surprised by the different wild looks
that can pop out of nowhere
. Be sure to
come see Chad’s PowerPoint
presentation of his recent first
introductions, his many beautiful
seedlings, and the stories behind them.

For those interested in joining Chad
and fellow club members for a 5:00

pm dinner at Applebee’s before the
meeting, please notify Ginny Pearce
( or

616-954-0416) no later than Tuesday,
November 4 so accurate reservations
can be made. Participants pay for their
own meal. Applebees is located north
of Frederik Meijer Gardens halfway
between Leonard and Knapp on the
east side of East Beltline. The address
is 3250 Grand Ridge Drive.
