Region 6 Daylily Popularity Polls
American Daylily Society
David Hall Memorial Award

As a service to its members and to the general public, each year the American Daylily Society (ADS) conducts a popularity poll among its members to determine the favorite daylilies from each region. It is the hope of the ADS that this Popularity Poll presents a true picture of those daylilies that perform well in a given area and which are best liked by the membership. Popularity Polls are important to daylily growers, both ADS members and non-members, who make daylily selections for purchase.

The David Hall Memorial Medal/Certificate (called the David Hall Regional Trophy until 1969) is awarded annually on a Regional basis to the hybridizer of the most popular cultivar as determined by vote of the members in the Popularity Poll. In order to win, a minimum of 5 votes is required in the Region. In cases of ties (*), duplicate medals or certificates are given.

The 2006 Region 6 Popularity Poll proved to be an all-time success story! We had a record number of votes and a record number of cultivars nominated.

During the Region 6 Meeting held in Round Rock, Texas, on May 26, 2017, it was voted to move daylilies from the Popularity Poll voting list to the Popularity Poll Hall of Fame after being in the top 5 of the Region 6 Popularity Polls for 3 years. These daylily names will no longer appear in the list used for Region 6 Popularity Poll voting.
