San Antonio Daylily Society History
On Sunday afternoon, April 7, 1968, an enthusiastic group of daylily growers met in the Ruiz House at the Witte Memorial Museum, San Antonio, and laid the groundwork for a Region 6 Daylily Society.
The following temporary officers were elected: Mrs. Emma Nelson, Chairman; Mrs. Lawrence Cade, Secretary; and Mr. John McLane, Treasurer
Mrs. Hallie Mercer, Mrs. Russell Whipp, and Mrs. R. L. Shields were chosen to draw up the Society's Constitution and By-Laws.
The San Antonio Hemerocallis Society was organized May 19, 1968. There were 25 Charter Members. The name was changed to the San Antonio Daylily Society (SADS) on September 24, 1982.
The club is organized for
educational and scientific purposes, and especially to promote, encourage, and
foster the development and improvement of the genus Hemerocallis and
public interest therein. Members are encouraged to join AHS.
Monthly meetings are held at the San
Antonio Botanical Gardens Education Building, at 2:00 p.m. on the third Sunday
of most months. There is no regular meeting in May or December. Instead May is
the time for the annual flower show and plant sale and December is the annual
Christmas party and installation of officers.
Interesting meetings with some great guest speakers, silent auctions, refreshments and sometimes free plants brought by members
Annual AHS accredited daylily show

The Scape is the club newsletter, published monthly and sent to members and interested parties.
