first thursdays

Join us on the first Thursday of the month, except January, June, July, and December. We meet in the Garden Center at Zilker Botanical Gardens (2220 Barton Springs Road, Austin). Refreshments, usually a light dinner sponsored by meeting hosts, are served at 6:30pm and the meeting begins at 7:00pm. There is no fee for parking at Zilker Botanical Gardens after hours, just tell the attendant you're there for the Daylily meeting.

New members are welcome to Come to any meeting!

Please see the calendar for a list of meeting topics and guest speakers. Highlights of the year's agenda include: the annual show and sale, a summer picnic, the daylily auction, a fall plant swap, and the end of year holiday party. Members typically bring plants to share at each meetings.

There's a broad variety of plants available at our fall plant swap, not just daylilies!
