Flowers Galore in the Flag City Daylily Tour

. July 1, 2016.

Families can check out the self-guided, Flag City Daylily Tour from 10am-6pm July 15-July 16 and 12-6pm July 17. View all of the gardens in one day or spread visits over the weekend.

This free tour features daylily displays of six local gardens: Sharon DeCooman, Mike Anders, Ann and George Brickner, Linda and David Spahr, Sharon Hammer, and Keith and Becky McClelland. The tour was organized by Ann and George Brickner, Sharon DeCooman and Mike Anders. More than 80,000 daylily cultivars (varieties) are registered with the American Hemerocallis Society ( and millions of unregistered daylily varieties (seedlings), with an estimated over 3,000 registered cultivars growing in the Flag City gardens. “We thought having the tour would be a great way to educate many in our community about the beauty of daylilies and to let people know that the modern daylily is NOT like the “old” ditch lilies that we see blooming along the highways in July,” said Anders.

The tour will take place rain or shine.
