Franklin Garden Club: “H” is for Daylilies

Adele Keohan, a certified master gardener, will present a program on “H” is for Daylilies at the Tuesday, November 6, 2018, meeting of the Franklin Garden Club. The meeting will be held at the Franklin Senior Center, 10 Daniel McCahill Street, Franklin, from 7 – 9 PM, beginning with an informal social at 6:30 pm. It is open to the public at no charge.

The presentation will provide information on different types of daylilies, such as “spider,” “double,” and “eyed” plants; how to select a daylily for form, bloom time and habit; how to care for and propagate these hardy perennial plants; and how to keep them blooming in the garden from late spring to Halloween.

Keohan, a daylily enthusiast who had a garden of 200 daylilies, is a regional officer in the American Hemerocallis Society (AHS), the national daylily society. A member of AHS since 2006, she was appointed an AHS garden judge in 2008 and became a garden judge instructor in 2013. She has presented garden judge workshops at national and regional AHS conventions, as well as in Québec. The votes of AHS garden judges determine which daylily hybrids earn the top AHS awards each year.

A past president of the New England Daylily Society, she is a member of several other daylily organizations and the editor of the award-winning regional daylily society publication, “Daylilies in the Great Northeast.”
