Past Winners

Each year since 1973, the North American Lily Society has asked its members what their favorite lilies are. The popularity poll is a great resource if you are looking for lilies to add to your collection, particularly if you are a new gardener. Of course, all of the lilies on the list are beautiful, but they are also lilies that perform well in the garden.
