The Bay Area Daylily
Buds is a local daylily society affiliated with the American Hemerocallis
Society and is a non-profit organization. Our
mission is to educate, grow, and share information concerning
the daylily (Hemerocallis). Our goal is to bring the versatile, hardy and beautiful modern daylily to the forefront of Northeast Wisconsin and Upper Peninsula gardens, and encourage new
generations of gardeners to grow, enjoy, and experience it.
The Bay Area Daylily Buds
organization was started in 1999 by local daylily enthusiasts Leo Bordeleau, Phil
Korth, and Luella Korth. Membership has grown steadily, to the point that
the club now has around of 90 members. The club continues to add programming, activities, and opportunities for members and our
community. In July of 2004 and 2014, the BAD Buds hosted the AHS Region 2
Summer Meeting. AHS Region 2 is comprised of daylily gardeners,
hybridizers, and enthusiasts from the states of Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana,
Michigan and Ohio. The meeting is the high point of the summer for many
midwest daylily folk.
New members are
welcome and we know that they will enjoy our club and it's activities.
