The B.A.D. Buds are an informal group of gardeners with diverse backgrounds and interests. In addition to growing and/or hybridizing daylilies, many of us also grow hosta, iris, roses, and numerous other perennials. Our group meets approximately eight times a year to share information about the growing and hybridizing of daylilies, listen to national and regional speakers, tour gardens, provide opportunities to purchase and also win daylilies, and generally just enjoy the company of others who are interested in daylilies.

In partnership with the Green Bay Botanical Garden we also maintain six garden beds in which over 200 daylily cultivars grow and bloom.

We began meeting on a regular basis in 1999 and were granted 501(c)(3) tax exempt status by the Internal Revenue Service in 2005.

Members receive the club newsletter (The "B.A.D. News") six times a year.
