Thomas Trotter Daylily Garden #mbgdaylilygarden
This collection of approximately 500 different daylilies is recognized as an official Display Garden by the American Hemerocallis Society. The origination of this garden occurred in 1982 when Thomas Trotter, a charter member of the Memphis Daylily Society, donated a collection of daylilies to the Memphis Botanic Garden. Since then, the Memphis Daylily Society has expanded the collection and contributes to the care and maintenance of this garden with an active group of volunteers on a routine basis.The Garden's daylily collection includes a number of winners of the Stout Silver Medal, which is the highest award that a daylily cultivar can receive. National and regional hybridizers' daylilies are included, and every shape or form of daylily is represented in this collection.
