Daylily – Stout Medal Winners

The Stout Silver Medal is the highest award given by the American Hemerocallis Society (AHS). It was established in memory of Dr. Arlow Burdette Stout, who is considered to be the father of modern daylily breeding in North America. It was the first award category established by AHS and is given annually.
