Thus far I'm only finding proliferations of some of my diploid daylilies.
Anyone know if there are tets that also have them?

Thanks.

There are plenty of tets that have prolifs. In fact only a few of my dips had prolifs and the rest were tets (and that was a lot). I don't keep any data on which ones produce prolifs but I would say about 50% (maybe more) of mine do. And it may vary from one year to the next if the same ones produce them or not.

Thanks tink3472. I'll watch more closely. (Ignored gardens for some time due to health issues)

Also see you are in Cantonment and I ordered some plants from your town. Can't wait to see them.
Heard you had bad weather this winter.

Oh my, bad winter isn't the right word for it; I would say it was horrendous. We normally have a few freezes that span over the whole winter and some extremely cold days in there too with the rest of it mildly cold and really warm. I thought last winter was crazy with the cold, warm, cold, warm, freeze, hot, cold, etc. The plants last year really had no idea what to do. But this year I pretty much couldn't get anything done in the garden for 3 months because of the extremely cold temps, freezes, snow/sleet that didn't melt for 3 days and then warm up just to freeze again. We just had a freeze not too long ago, about a week and half ago so this is getting pretty old.

It may not seem bad for other parts of the US but we just are not used to that here at all.

When I got "Priceless" last spring as a single fan it came with a scape that was cut by the seller ( I would never do that! Crying ). A few weeks later a prolif appeared. If you don't look closely on all the scapes in the garden you can miss the prolifs. I planted all the earlier ones next to the parent. I brought three inside for the winter, they are sitting in a south facing window.

Funny, just checked my ones that proliferate. They are all diploid. Didn't expect that.

On the daylily subject, has anyone had a daylily seed that sprouted twin fans right away? I have one that is right now.

It's a pretty even split for me on proliferation growth between the dips and tets. The only exception seems to be one fan of JOAN SENIOR that produces one every time it scapes.

I think I probably have more dips than tets that get prolifs but I will have to watch more closely this year.

I think I have more tets than dips that prolifs - but I actually have more tet day lilies. ( sorry, my auto correct ALWAYS changes plural daylily to two words)

Last summer I had a lot of prolifs that I noticed and transplanted. It will be interesting to see which ones survived the winter. Nothing greening up in that back garden where I have them planted yet.
