Inscription.  
The Van Valkenburgh Daylily Garden features a collection of approximately 800 cultivars of daylilies in a spectacular array of colors, sizes, shapes and flower forms. The display garden continues to evolve every year as the latest introductions are added, while interpretative labels identify each plant cultivar and its hybridizer. Although the scientific name for Daylily, Hemerocallis, means “beauty for a day”, the garden is a riot throughout our hot Alabama summer with the peak season being in June.

Garden founder Rosa Belle Van Valkenburgh has been a steadfast champion of the Huntsville Botanical Garden from its inception and this garden is named in her honor. Through her efforts, our daylily garden is named in her honor. Through her efforts our daylily garden has been recognized by the American Hemerocallis Society as an official Garden Display Garden, and through her relationships with hybridizers we are able to introduce new selections each year.
