Hello everyone!
I know it's a bit late at this time to germinate seeds and have a good plant for this summer, but I wanted to make an experiment: could be there any difference if the seeds are a EE or L daylily?
Which of the two would grow faster, if it can be told? Also, the EE cross is from dip too, so for some unknown reason my brain is telling me to germinate those seeds first. Is it a total madness or not?
Thank You!

I wouldn't think it makes any difference, but then again I know little about the scientific end of daylilies.

I've no idea either, I rather doubt anybody has looked at that aspect. Why not start both, lack of space? With perennials I'm inclined to think it wouldn't make any difference but you also need to look at the ultimate size of the plant because neither will flower until they get to an appropriate fan size.

Maybe I posted a really stupid question, it should have happened sooner or later Big Grin
I don't have lots of space.I'm waiting for the last 4 seeds of my cross to germinate (I don't know if they ever will) so I could start two, four seeds maximum. I could also buy big pots and put plants there but then when next winter will come I will be afraid of cold, since the plants will be in a pot and not in the ground.
Or I could ask my husband to remove a piece of fake grass and use another portion or the mini-garden. Then, I will have problem watering since there is not a water tube near. I watered everything by hand the past dry summer, back and forth from the house filling a watering can.
LOL simply put, I should wait to have a better garden!!

As far as I know there is no objective scientific knowledge to answer your question.
