Daylily gardens in Langley draw floral fans from as far as the Okanagan

Bounteous blooms and good weather helped a local garden.

More than 1,000 people came to see the flowers at Erikson’s Daylily Gardens on July 11 and 12.

“We were so happy with the weather, it was perfect,” said Pam Erikson, the gardener who has cultivated thousands of varieties of daylilies on her North Otter property.

There were several buses that brought visitors, and members of the Port Coquitlam Garden Club arrived in a group.

“They came out in full force,” said Erikson.

One visitor was tickled when she won three bird houses back to back in a draw.

“We’re already in the planning stages for next year,” Erikson said.
