What causes a daylily to have more than one stigma/style or stigma end? I am adding a photo (not the best, Sorry!). I think you can still see it well enough to tell what I am asking.

Can't tell by your partial photo but it may be a fused bloom which will have 2 pistils and 12 stamens.

(The stigma is the tip of the pistil. )

Yes, I checked the AHS Website. Sorry none of the pics are clear. It actually had 3 ends or 3 stigma and 3 style but 2 are short only 6 stamen. I don't think it was a fused bloom.

It looks like one stigma that has split into 3 sections.
I see this all the time usually later in the morning, I don't know what causes it.
Here it seems that some plants are more prone than others so I try to pollinate those first.
I do know that if you pollinate make sure you hit all the segments with pollen.

Probably what it was. The 2 small ones looked like they grew out the side of the main one (sort of). Yes, I did pollinate and did hit all 3 segments with pollen.

Thanks!

The one stigma is made up of 3 tubes, sometimes they split at the pollinating end, or further down.
A True gardener will purchase a thousand plants before thinking of where to put them :P

Okay, it did split into 3. I had one bloom today that had one split into 2. I pollinated both ends. Wonder what would happen if you used pollen from two different plants? I didn't just curious.

You probably could but when the pod forms you would have no way of knowing which seeds were from which pollen.

Here's the one from today. You can see it split on the end.



I hope I don't have a lot of these or I hope the pollen sets on them.

Bama Girl Tee, look at the pistil and stigma, BGT splits into 3 segments quite a bit
