I have been wondering about this for several years now....

Can someone explain to me what is meant by "reblooming" daylily?

I have many that bloom for several months. Mine start blooming in late April through July. But I don't know if they are rebloomers or just have a long bloom period that continues through several months

or

do rebloomers stop blooming and then start blooming again? (Like Happy Returns and Stella de oro.)

Thanks for any info you can share about this topic!

I have another question I am going to post to this thread (rather than start a new thread) ...

How long is recommended for chilling seeds? I had actually read somewhere that it was not necessary, though I have always chilled mine. Do you chill yours? If so, for how long?

Thanks!

Reblooming means that after the first scape is done blooming the plant sends up another scape. Sometimes the new scape comes up right after the first is bloomed out, sometimes while the first scape is still blooming, and sometimes the plant takes a break for a few weeks (or longer) then sends up another scape.

There are 2 ways to chill seeds. The first is basically just cold storage.... Storing seeds in the fridge after they have been dried. The second is cold stratification....storing seeds in a moist environment (moist sand, vermiculite, paper towel, coffee filter, etc or in a peroxide/water solution for at least 3 weeks then brought out to room temperature to germinate.

There are several threads on here that discuss this and you can google cold stratification of daylily seeds to see various ways people do it.


I do not cold store or cold stratify mine; I plant them directly out of the pods. Now when I sell seeds I do cold store them for at least 3 weeks since that what everyone seems to expect.
