What Daylily Is Popular In Your Area?

As a service to its members and to the general public, each year the American Hemerocallis Society (AHS) conducts a popularity poll among its members to determine the favorite daylilies from each region. It is the hope of the AHS that this Popularity Poll presents a true picture of which daylilies perform well in a given area and which are best liked by the membership. Popularity polls are important to daylily growersboth AHS members and nonmemberswho make daylily selections for purchase.

The AHS Popularity Poll for 1994

The AHS is pleased to present the Popularity Poll for 1994. For each region, we list the top 15 daylily cultivars receiving at least 5 votes, giving placement and ties. Only in the event that the 15th listed cultivar is a tie, are additional cultivars listed. AHS Regional newsletters may feature more complete results.

Note: These 1994 results were published in the spring 1995 issue of the Daylily Journal.
