Statesboro hosts statewide daylily convention
W IMG 8135
Top winner Scott Elliott, Ellabell resident and president of the Ogeechee Daylily Society, proudly shows off his Best in Show hemerocallis, the H. "Ghost Ranger" cultivar, selected by judges at a recent daylily show held in Statesboro for growers across the state of Georgia.
Statesboro recently played host to a stunning display of award-winning hemerocallises. Though gardening enthusiasts may recognize that difficult-to-pronounce word, the rest of us may know the plant by its more common name, the daylily. Accredited by the American Hemerocallis Society, the weekend event, held May 27-28, was hosted by the Ogeechee Daylily Society and the Savannah Hemerocallis Society and consisted of a judged daylily show on Friday and garden tours on Saturday.
