The common saying is stop and smell the roses. Daylilies don't really smell, but you can definitely stop and admire their beauty. The Greater Atlanta and Cobb County Day-Lily Societies will host the Ninth Annual Day-Lily Show and Plant Sale on Saturday, June 8th. More than 500 blooms of several hundred different cultivars will be on display for morning judging and afternoon viewing by the public. At the same time, bare-root day-lilies will be on sale at bargain prices, a great way to add these hardy plants to a garden. A design competition using day-lilies is always a must-see. Experts from both clubs will be on hand to share what they know and love. The show and sale is free and open to the public from 12:30 to 4:00 PM. The event is held at the Cobb Galleria Centre, Two Galleria Parkw...
