2018 Daylily Show exhibitors

Once all of the hard work of carefully transporting and grooming our daylilies is done, after the judging is complete, and the last of the public have left the show - we've started a tradition of gathering our entries for a final picture. Thanks to Beth Collier for these terrific images from the 2018 Show in May.

    What is the AHS?


    John Turrentine, VP Programs, North Texas Daylily Society, has created a very informative PowerPoint program titled "What is the AHS?" John wanted to share this program with the other Region 6 clubs, so he made the file available in PDF format. Ray Houston has posted it to the Region 6 website for all to share.

    The file can be accessed from the website menu by selecting HistoryAHS & Region 6 History, or use the link: http://www.ahsregion6.com/history.htm
