Mr. Lewis, although not a member of the Garden Club of Montrose, has two or three of the largest daylily collections in Northeast PA. His collections include over 500 varieties. He plans to have all of the major color groups represented at the plant sale. Mr. Lewis will be present with his laptop with images of the daylilies that will be for sale so customers will be able to see them in bloom. All plants will be well labeled with planting instructions, color, etc.  Garden Club members are making mosaic garden stepping stones that will be for sale as well. Proceeds from the sale will benefit the club’s Civic Beautification and Scholarship funds.
