INDIANA DAYLILY-IRIS SOCIETY (IDIS)
Non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of daylilies and iris
On our site you will find our calendar of events for this year, our newsletter, links to our national and regional societies, and links to local growers.
David Kirchhoff and Mort Morss from Daylily World in Lawrenceburg, KY
will be our speakers on Tuesday, April 3, 2018, 6:30. David's
first cross was in 1958, and his love of daylilies continues unabated. He
is perhaps best known for his red and double flowered cultivars, although
his two Lennington All American daylilies were shades of pink. His two
Stout Medal award winners were both golden yellow. David eagerly
anticipates the challenge of growing and hybridizing daylilies
for northern hardiness.
Mort began hybridizing daylilies in 1971, and his cultivars are very popular
and widely grown. His award winning, first introduction, was named
INNER VIEW and it helped launch the popularity of patterned daylilies.
Morts Lennington All American Award winning PAPER BUTTERFLY
was the first widely acclaimed cultivar with a patterned eyezone.
His unwavering pursuit of excellence in the realm of patterned flowers
has resulted in a disproportionately large percentage of the most
coveted patterned eyes and edges by cutting edge hybridizers world wide.
Join us as we hear about recent work with daylilies.
