This mystery (to me) daylily was marked as a Stella De Oro on both pot and ID stick at the nursery, and was smack in the middle of a huge number of regular-looking Stella pots, but was clearly much lighter yellow, and many more petaled-form than its sisters. It is about the same height/width in leaf and scape/flower, but only blooms with a pistil and no stamen. I don't know enough to ID it as a Kwanso, but perhaps it is? I love this daylily, but would really like to be sure about its name and ploidy status, etc. Rolling my eyes. Thumb of 2012-06-18/chalyse/9c101e

Not kwanso. It is orange.

With over 70,000 registered daylilies, there is no way to ID this for sure. Plus, add in the thosands of seedlings given away each year. Then, getting it at a nursery, it is likely tissue cultured. Daylilies don't tissue culture very well. My experience is that they seldom look like the original plant, field grown division.

I would just enjoy it and mark it as No ID. If you guess at a name, that is all it is, a guess.

Thanks, Juli! I will informally christen it my "Stella D'or Noid" and may try my luck at pollinating its lone pistil (till i have better things to do after settling on some proper DLs to start with) - better than playing the lottery, i guess. I also learned a lot by looking up "tissue culture" ... i had no idea Blinking ... it is always good to learn about these things, thanks!
