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 1995

The AHS is pleased to present the Popularity Poll for 1995. For each region, we list the top 15 daylily cultivars, including ties. However, all cultivars receiving 20 votes or more are included and those with four votes or less are excluded. AHS Regional newsletters may feature more complete results.

Note: These 1995 results were published in the spring 1996 issue of the Daylily Journal and were tabulated by Dwaine Kurtz, AHS Popularity Poll Chairman. Click here to see the results of the1994 AHS Popularity Poll.
