AHS Region One—Where it all began!

Loon Song Gardens is located in AHS Region One, which includes Iowa, Manitoba, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota. AHS assigns members to regions according to where they live (regions collect no addtional dues). AHS was founded in Region One's Shenandoah, Iowa, in 1946, as the Midwest Hemerocallis Society, which later became The American Hemerocallis Society.

All Region One members receive two issues of The Daylily Pioneer as part of their AHS membership in addition to four issues of The Daylily Journal.

Follow Region One activities on the website: AHS Region One.
