American Hemerocallis Society
At our webmaster's insistance, we reluctantly agreed to add a link to a daylily website. The American Hemerocallis Society is the international registrar for hemerocallis (daylilies).

The American Horticultural Society
Despite publishing the ridiculous and useless Heat Zone Map, this is an interesting site with the on-line magazine "The American Gardener".

American Hosta Society
Yes, there are more of you out there than you think. This group loves to share information about their favorite genus of shade perennial. Not only do they have great conventions with garden tours, but their journal is considered one of the finest plant society journals published.


The Cyclamen Society
For great information on cyclamen, check this out. Not only does it tell about the species, growth, etc, but it also details wild collection localities, and lots of other scientific stuff...did I mention a members seed exchange!

The Garden Conservancy
Loosely modeled after the English Garden Trust, this brainchild of plantsman Frank Cabot was designed to assist in the preservation efforts of great American gardens. This is a superb organization, whose efforts are already being felt, thanks to the support of members. The site details each of the conservancy sites and how to visit.

The Hardy Fern Foundation
This group is dedicated to establishing a collection of the world's hardy ferns. Membership includes a newsletter and spore exchange.

International Aroid Society
Now here is a bunch of plant nuts if there ever has been one. Their interest ranges from tropical anthuriums to hardy arisaemas to elephant ears...anything with a spathe and spadix. You will be amazed what you will find here...also a great internet robin.

International Association For Plant Taxonomy
I'll bet you have often wondered who those folks are that keep changing plant names and why. Now you can visit their website and read the Botanical Nomenclature Code for yourself and try to make some sense out of the whole thing.

International Bulb Society
If you though bulbs only included daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths, the you need to visit the IBS site. You will find info on worsleya, crinum, boophane, scadoxus, or nothoscordum. The information on lesser known bulbs are a real treasure here. They also have a great seed exchange, a great internet robin, and a wonderful publication!

International Palm Society
A group obviously dedicated to growing palms with a superb journal and great articles and contacts on growing hardy palms.

International Plant Propagators Society
This professional society is dedicated to sharing information about all aspects of plant propagation. The meetings and publications of the proceedings is superb. Links are available on propagation, as well as membership information.

NC Wildflower Preservation Society
This small but dedicated group of native plant enthusiasts have meetings and tour across the state in their efforts to learn, educate, and save the wildflowers of NC.

North American Rock Garden Society
Yes, these are the little plant people. This is the group that probably boasts the largest membership of plant nerds in the country. NARGS chapters can be found from the east coast to Alaska. The quarterly publication is superb, their book store holds a wealth of great deals, and the seed exchange of over 6000 species is truly mind boggling!

North Carolina Palm Society
Now NC has it's own palm society.

Royal Horticulture Society
The RHS is a valuable resource, for their publication including the famed Plantfinder, which is now on-line and can locate any saleable plant in the UK. In addition, you can get the test results from the RHS trial garden...a fascinating site.

Southeast Palm and Exotic Plant Society
These are my kind of folks...a group of intense plant nuts dedicated to growing tropical plants in temperate climates. They have quarterly garden visits/meeting throughout the southeast along with a small publication...a great bunch! This also has some of the best plant-nerd links that I've ever seen!

Tropical Gardening
believe that love of the land is why I love tropical plants so dearly. All the earth with its plants and animals and topography is so dear to my heart. To me, we are but stewards of the land for it will be here long after we are gone. Therefore, it is imperative that we do our best to preserve it as best we can for future generations and for its own sake.
