MPCS to Host Cobb County Daylily Society’s 15th Annual Daylily Show and Plant Sale

MPCS to Host Cobb County Daylily Society’s 15th Annual Daylily Show and Plant Sale

 

The Cobb County Daylily Society will host its 15th Annual Daylily Show and Plant Sale, themed the “Galaxy of Daylilies,” on Saturday, June 5, at Mount Paran Christian School. The event is open to the public from 1:00-3:00 p.m., with free admission. 

Show Co-Chair and Cobb County Daylily Society Vice President Luke Van de Vate is a 2013 alumnus of Mount Paran Christian School. "I started growing daylilies in 6th grade, the same year I started at Mount Paran,” says Mr. Van de Vate. “Daylilies are easy to grow, beautiful, and fun to collect! As an alumnus of Mount Paran, I cannot wait to share my passion with current MPCS families and faculty. Please come support our show with your attendance and by selecting a plant of your own at our sale!"

Mount Paran Christian School Lower School Administrator Tina Baker will conduct a daylily seed planting activity and children’s storytime at 1:00 p.m. in the MPCS lower school garden.

The Daylily Show is open to all daylily growers. This year’s design theme is “Galaxy of Daylilies,” with categories including “The Big Dipper,” “Catch a Falling Star,” and “Northern Lights.” The event is accredited by the American Hemerocallis Society.
