American Hemerocallis Society

Free Macro Shot of Yellow Flowers Stock PhotoThe American Hemerocallis Society (AHS) is dedicated to the cultivation and enjoyment of daylilies. AHS defines a daylily as any herbaceous plant in the genus Hemerocallis.

Hemerocallis are among the most popular plants in the world. They are easy to grow, require little care, and bloom over a long season. Daylilies are available in a wide range of colors, sizes, and shapes. Whether you are looking for a plant for your garden or something special for containers, there is a daylily that will suit your needs.

Your daily habit of stopping to smell the roses may not actually be doing you any favors.

A new study has found that people who spend time sniffing flowers may be at a higher risk of developing allergies.

The study, published in the journal Annals of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, looked at data from more than 4,000 adults in the United States. It found that those who had a “high frequency” of flower exposure were more likely to have hay fever and other allergic reactions.

The AHS provides a forum for daylily enthusiasts to share their knowledge and love of the plants. We offer educational resources, sponsor research, and hold events around the country. Our members range from beginner gardeners to expert horticulturists.

The trend in horticulturists is to specialize in a particular genus or group of plants. This is the way the American Hemerocallis Society (AHS) has organized itself since its founding in 1946.

The AHS was founded by a group of passionate gardeners who wanted to share their love of daylilies with others. Since then, the Society has grown steadily, attracting members from all 50 states and many foreign countries. We now have regional clubs in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
