About Our Grants

A typical grant award to successful candidate(s) is no more than $5,000 for the calendar year; this figure might be increased for some projects. Two (2) renewals of the grant may be made for a total of three years of support, based on submission of a satisfactory annual report in September of each year. A contract will be written and an article for publication in The Daylily Journal will be required before the final installment is paid. The American Daylily Society does not cover indirect costs for research grant proposals. It is our intention that all money granted should go directly to the specific research project funded. Our financial support must be cited in any publications resulting from the grant.

All aspects of scientific research on Hemerocallis will be considered. Fundamental areas of investigation are encouraged; examples are:

  • Banded chromosome preparations
  • Gene mapping
  • Fine structural studies of vegetative or reproductive parts
  • Microscopic analysis of the ontogeny of flower scapes in the crown
  • Effect of various hormones on plant growth and formation of proliferations on

Likewise, practical areas of study are encouraged, such as:

  • Hardiness of various cultivars in different climatic zones
  • Use of microtubule degradants (e.g., trifluralin, oryzalin, amiprophosmethyl) to produce polyploids
  • Seed dormancy factors
  • Pests and diseases (e.g., crown rot, spring sickness, bulb mites, gall midge, daylily rust).
