The Daylily Place

The following images of diploid daylilies have been contributed by members of the E-Mail Robin for your enjoyment.

Diploid daylilies have 22 chromosomes in the nucleus of each cell. Most wild species are diploids, except for a few triploids with 33 chromosomes.

The most famous diploid daylily today is doubtles STELLA DE ORO (Walter Jablonski). This mini golden-yellow, continuous blooming variety is found everywhere except central and southern Florida.
