Welcome to the Central Illinois Daylily Society. It’s a place for our club to be social and share information online.

Our club’s purpose is to promote growing and hybridizing of daylilies and to share our passion for these fascinating flowers.

We welcome visitors to join us here on the site and in-person. Feel free to join in the conversations here, and if you’re in the area, join us for a club meeting or outing.

CIDS Member’s Auction and Potluck – Auction List Included

On Sunday, May 15th, we will be having our annual Members Only Auction and Potluck. We will begin gathering at 12:00pm, and the potluck will begin shortly thereafter. The auction should begin around 1pm.

This event is reserved for current members of CIDS, and your dues must be paid in-full before the day of the auction in order to participate. This auction is an opportunity for CIDS members to obtain new daylily cultivars (usually) at lower-than-retail prices.

The list of plants from this source is located below. CIDS members are encouraged to bring increases from the plants purchased through our clubs Plant Drawing program, and members may also donate other plants to be sold, with all proceeds going to CIDS.
