I have to say I was worried yesterday with the difficulty I was having coming up with terms for "Q" to start the thread. You all made it look so easy, the "Q" terms were awesome!! Smiling
There are so many good terms for "R", I'll start with two this morning....

Relief, a subform of sculpted, has raised ridges that rise from the surface of the petal.




Roots and Rhizome
Roots extend downward from the crown of the fan into the soil and furnish the plant with water and nutrients. Roots also provide support for the plant securing it in the soil. A rhizome is a stem which extends underground and produces a new fan of the same plant when it reaches the soil surface.

Oh so that's what rust looks like on daylilies, I don't think we get it here. We get rust on fuchsia and roses as the south west is such a damp area, we also get powdery mildew Sad

My favourite R is re-bloom!

Sorry Hilary, I didn't see you had rebloom in your message. Great minds think alike. Thumbs up

ROOT as in verb. I like to plant my dl in the spring so they have time to root before winter. Otherwise I worry about them heaving during the winter's crazy freeze/thaw. Then they die!

Ruffles! I love the loose ruffles on dl!

Rust, undoubtedly.

Rust on one of my baby seedlings! Grumbling

In line with that, I submit resistant. We should all be hybridizing with an eye to increasing rust resistance in our seedlings, and hopefully in our collective gene pool.

Others have covered rebloom, so I guess that leaves me with recurved.

Per the AHS:

Term used to describe a blossom's appearance. Petals reflex back toward the base, giving a rounded ball-like appearance.

Recurved daylilies have high value for me, since they tend to open better in our climate. Even after a cool night, they will at least open flat.



When you think about it, many of the UFs are also essentially recurved. While I prefer ruffles in my daylilies, more and more UFs have been finding a home here, simply because the blooms reliably open well.

REVERSE BI-TONE

Don't have any to show a pic, but it is usually lighter petals and darker sepals.

My daylily "R" word for today will be Registered!
These are the daylilies that have been registered with the AHS, and with these plants you can have a good idea of the traits and qualities of the plants. By purchasing registered plants you can select for patterns, colors, height, etc.
