Hinsdale - The Chicagoland Daylily Society will have its next meeting on Sunday, May 5. The group invites the public to learn about hybridized daylily flowers through Visiting Gardener and Speaker William Marchant. 

"William Marchant, comes to us from his Druid City Daylily Garden in Douglasville, Georgia, where he specializes in hybridizing daylilies that are double, patterned, toothy and are not 'look alikes' of other daylilies already on the market," 
shared Julie Doychak, Co-Vice President of the Chicagoland Daylily Society. 

She continued, "He works to produce good hardiness, rust resistance and great plant habit; and he will explain his enjoyment working with dormant plants and his goal that a majority of his introductions exhibit dormancy. William will offer a selection of his hybrids for our 50/50 auction after his presentation. You can view his hybrids at druidcitydaylilies.blogspot.com."

The event will be at the 
Community House, 415 W. 8th St. in Hinsdale, from 2-4pm. Guests are welcome. Go to the upper level Essley Room North (elevator is available to right after entering the Community House). 

The event is free of charge. Light snacks will be provided.
