Foothills Daylily Society is one of thirteen daylily clubs in Region 15 (North Carolina and South Carolina) of the American Daylily Society. Established in 2006 by Howard and Joyce Parris, along with John McWhorter, the club has maintained a core membership with several members being actively involved both at the regional and national levels of the American Daylily Society. The mission of the local club, like that of the national organization, is to educate people about daylilies, to promote the cultivation and enjoyment of daylilies, and to foster the on-going improvement of this perennial flower.

The club welcomes new members at any time. Dues are $10 per year. Youth members (under age 18) with an adult sponsor may join free of charge. Scheduled meetings for the remainder of 2019 are posted on the website.
