A few weeks ago I visited the Billinda Daylily Garden in Charlotte during their annual open house. A daughter’s wedding, a daughter’s birthday, our anniversary, and a granddaughter’s visit have distracted me since then, so I am a bit tardy in presenting this report. I have been visiting Bill and Linda Gluck’s garden during their open house weekend for almost ten years and continue to be overwhelmed with the quality of the garden and the number of beautiful daylilies. Their personal hospitality is a delight to this visitor.
The Billinda Daylily Garden is an official American Hemerocallis Society display garden. Bill and Linda are members and past presidents of the Piedmont Daylily Club in AHS Region 15. The garden contains a collection of all the Stout Medal award winners, all the Ida Munson award winning doubles, and a complete collection of the Stamile Candies. I have included some of my personal favorites here:
Bill told me that the garden contains over 650 daylily cultivars, including many that he and Linda have hybridized themselves.
I would encourage visitors to the Charlotte area in June to visit their garden. See their website at Billinda Daylily Garden to make arrangements for a visit and for directions. For daylily lovers, it is a “must see.”
It’s amazing what breeders are doing with daylilies these days!
Yes, the Glucks have a large bed for new daylilies in trial.
Wow! What a small world.
I worked with Bill at Duke Power over 30 years ago.
I plan to visit there now that you have pointed me in their direction.
I have been playing with my settings on wordpress.
I thought I lost you in cyberspace!
I’m as tech-savvy as a brood hen.
So glad to find you again.
Glad to have back. Thanks.

Looks very tempting. I visited a day lily farm in Fayetteville once and it was almost overwhelming. You’ve had a busy summer, full of nice moments it seems.
You’ve had lots to celebrate lately. It’s good you had time to visit this garden – 650 varieties, wow!
Thanks, Jason. We have indeed.
