The North Florida Daylily Society (NFDS) is an organization dedicated to promoting the cultivation, hybridization, and exhibition of daylilies. Its mission is to encourage and educate members and the public on the beauty, versatility, and value of daylilies as garden plants.

The NFDS aims to advance the knowledge and understanding of daylilies, including their history, breeding, genetics, and cultural requirements. It also seeks to foster friendship and communication among daylily enthusiasts and to provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas.

The Daylily Society promotes the use of daylilies in the landscape, encourages the development of new and improved daylily cultivars, sponsors shows and other events to showcase the beauty and diversity of daylilies.
