'Oklahoma City' Lily

The President's Column

Bernie Blance Seedling

It is with regret that I announce we have disbanded the Mid America Regional Lily Society.

Our lily society's membership and participation has been declining in recent years. At this point we are not a viable organization. On July 29, 2017 the society unanimously voted to disband.

I thank current members, past members, and the St. Louis community for their support and their interest in lilies over the past 35 years of our organization.

I encourage anyone with interest in lilies to join the North American Lily Society. To those who grow lilies, please continue to share your knowledge and love of lilies through garden clubs, neighbors, and friends. We all can continue to be ambassadors of lily culture!

To preserve the rich history of the Mid America Regional Lily Society and knowledge about Lilium in the Mid America Region of North America we have developed a new 'MARLS Memories' blog for your viewing pleasure. This blog contains images and information from past Lily Shows, Events, Newsletters, Meeting Minutes…and much more information about our favorite flower ‘Lilium‘.
