Garden Club: What’s New with Barth Daylilies


January 8, 2019
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Barth Daylilies are the longest continual program of daylily hybridization in the US, originally started by Joseph Barth, a minister in Alna in the early 1950s.  After Dr. Barth died, his son Nick continued the program and in 2010 O’Donal’s Nursery obtained ownership of the Barth daylily line and works with Nick growing, testing and registering new Barth daylilies. Jeff O’Donal from O’Donal’s Nursery joins us this month to talk about the latest chapter in the evolution of the Barth Daylily. There are 9 pages of the Barth daylilies in the O’Donal’s catalogue this year!
 
Beverages will be available starting at 6 p.m. Jeff’s talk will begin at 6:30 p.m.
