OK, I’m breaking my own rules here, but here is the list. This is only the list from Blue Ridge Daylilies, but there will be more plants donated by your fellow members. Those names, photos and details will be included in the presentation at the auction.
This is an initial announcement for the Members-Only Auction, Potluck and Meeting. This event will take place on Sunday, June 7th, 2015, starting at 1pm.
Many members are interested in the list of plants that will be available for auction. Below is a link to the list of plants that were purchased from Blue Ridge Daylilies. Additional plants may be donated or submitted to the auction.
