Carol and Dave DeVries
6:30 p.m.

On Thursday, July 16, the Grand
Valley Daylily Society has the
pleasure of visiting the Carol and
David DeVries Garden which is a
newly designated American
Hemerocallis Display Garden
beginning at 6:30 pm.  Be sure to
remember your folding chair.  The
address is
13330 40th Avenue,
Marne, MI  49435

The DeVries own 2.5 acres of
wooded property complete with a
stream.  They have nestled 1 acre
of gardens containing 915 labeled
cultivars into both sunny and shady
conditions.  Several beds are solely
devoted to daylilies while others
use true lilies, clematis, roses,
hardy geraniums, sedums, and
others as companion plantings.  The
extensive shaded hosta collection is
shared with assorted epimedium,
hellebores, and ferns.  Many paths
throughout the gardens make it
easy for Carol to reach her plants
for gardening tasks as well as for
visitors to view both the name tags
and plants at close range.  

Be sure to join us for an evening
of beauty as the daylilies should
be in full bloom.
