Creveling Garden Perkasie PA
AHS Display Garden
This garden includes over 2000 cultivars and is an AHS Display Garden. The owners have been gardening at this location for over 35 years, and so the daylily collection features a range of daylilies collected over that time. Also featured are a variety of shrubs and perennials, especially peonies and Japanese and Siberian iris and a collection of Dexter rhododendrons. Extensive daffodil and snowdrop collections brighten the spring and winter landscapes. It is open throughout the daylily season, generally the first three weeks of July, by appointment only.

Forth Street Garden, Monongahela PA
The one acre garden of Jack and Jan Enos is located at the foot of a hill as you descend Fourth Street into Monongahela, PA. They moved to this location from Finleyville less than ten years ago to make room for Jack’s hobby. Currently there are over 800 daylily cultivars with the majority being less than 5 – 6 years old. At least 25 different hybridizers are represented in this count with a large collection from Jamie Gossard. Jack currently has six introductions with half of them named for special PIDS members or their relatives.
The backyard garden is located at the crest of a hill with a gazebo as a focal point. In the spring over 100 named daffodil varieties welcome spring and hide in the flower beds once it is time for the daylilies to bloom. There are several unusual trees including a weeping Siberian pea bush, weeping redbud, weeping larch, and a twisted white pine. A fountain water feature, engraved stones, metal pieces, and a lovely fused glass birdbath created by Jan, whose hobby is fused glass art, are carefully placed in their garden. Be on the lookout for the unique gnome/fairy display. Perhaps the family dogs, Rocky and Rico, will greet you when you visit the Enos garden.

Johnson Garden, Eighty Four, PA
On the edge of the 213 acre Johnson family farm in Eighty Four, PA, the garden of Dan and Lisa Johnson was created five years ago. At first Lisa’s love for iris drew her to join PIDS, but soon she was hooked on daylilies and digging new beds for acquisitions! Along with some original garden art pieces (many created by the garden owner), you will see some of the retired farm equipment including an antique manure spreader that has been turned into a raised strawberry patch.
In the spring over --- varieties of iris and daffodils can be seen at the entrance to the long driveway to their home. Beginning in early June, over 500 varieties of daylilies along with hosta and heuchera replace the spring blooms. You will find a daylily mixture of newer introductions as well as older favorites ranging in size from miniatures to extra-large cultivars including many doubles and unusual forms. Region Three hybridizers are represented including a collection of new introductions from PIDS members Gary Ball and Ryan Treece.
The Region 3 seedling bed is located in the Johnson garden where you will be voting for the seedling that will win the Dan Tau best seedling award.

Southern Cross Garden, McMurray Pennsylvania
Southern Cross Garden, in its current McMurray location, began with about 200 daylilies transplanted during a Western Pennsylvania drought thirty years ago. Currently there are about four times as many daylilies with some of the original stock kept for sentimental reasons. The collection includes cultivars of Region Three hybridizers, especially deceased PIDS members Dan Tau, John Yonski, and Bob Loughry, who were mentors of the Rowles family. Favorite active hybridizers include Herrington, Trimmer, Pierce, Gossard, Kirchhoff, and Morss. Larry has planted many specimen trees including a dawn redwood, stewartia, fringe tree, and four varieties of beech. All of the beds are interplanted with spring blooming daffodils. The beds are lined with mini iris and a collection of over 75 different heuchera. There is an area of miniature hosta in troughs inhabited by a colony of gnomes. Butterflies are encouraged to inhabit the garden by the planting of butterfly-friendly plant material; honey bees can be seen gathering pollen from the many tall, rust-colored summer blooming foxgloves. The centrally located fountain is a water source for the birds that frequent the yard throughout the year. A gazebo welcomes the garden visitor to sit, relax, and enjoy the beauty and tranquility of Southern Cross Garden.
