About the Event

Robert Ellison was an award-winning daylily hybridizer and longtime friend of one of our employees, Michelle Rogers. Mr. Ellison taught Michelle the art of breeding beautiful and unique daylilies. Before Mr. Ellison left this Earth in August 2018, he asked Michelle to carry on his legacy of creating these amazing daylilies. We have collaborated with Michelle to create the Robert Ellison Memorial Garden at Hidden Timber Gardens.

On July 13th and 14th we will be hosting a garden dedication and Bloomfest event. The garden dedication will take place at 11:00 on July 13th. Visitors can tour the memorial garden as well as purchase unique daylilies right from the garden. Many of the lilies are only available at Hidden Timber Gardens since they were Bob’s individual creations. There are a wide variety of lilies available for the collector to the hobby gardener.

The Master Gardeners will be available to answer questions and vendors will have local products for sale. Door prizes and raffle items will be given away all weekend. Other unique trees, shrubs, perennials and annuals will also be available. Come out and enjoy walking through the lovely display gardens and get ideas for your home landscape.
