Grand Valley Daylily Society
Past GVDS Gazette
Upcoming Events
February-April 2014

We begin our garden touring for the
evening at the Grand Ideas Garden at
the MSU Extension office on Ball
Street.  Many changes and additions
have been made since the club last
visited this inspiring location.

Then we will proceed to the home of
the VanderWilps.  When Ben and
Sharon moved into their home fifteen
years ago, they quickly decided that
the small strip of garden in front of
their home and the border around the
backyard was not enough.  A few years
later, they joined the Grand Valley
Daylily Society and you can probably
guess what happened then!   Their
favorite daylilies are those hybridized
by club members, as well as
hybridizers in our growing region who
have been speakers at GVDS.  To
contrast against a dark home and
cedar stockade fence, the color
scheme is mostly bright orange, yellow,
and purple although some pastel and
red daylilies have snuck in!  Many
companion perennials grow in harmony
with a wide assortment of daylily
forms.  With approximately 250
cultivars on their current roster, there
is sure to be a few in bloom on July 10.  
We hope you can join us!
Don't forget your folding chair!
