Iowa Regional Lily Society     (IRLS)
Growing Lilies in Iowa and neighboring states since 1973
Nan Ripley is  a daylily hybridizer with a growing number of award-winning daylilies to her credit. Thousands of her seedling daylilies are in bloom most
of the summer.
          Nan's "Walkabout Gardens" is being featured in the May 2017  Martha Stewart Magazine!
As part of our July 2013 NALS Lily Show and Symposium, our 2013 Lily
Garden Bus Tour took us to three IRLS Iowa member gardens filled with
True Lilies, Daylilies, Hostas, Trees and other beautiful blooming plants.
