Daylily (Hemerocallis) has a prechill requirement before the seeds will germinate. Mix the seeds into some moistened seed starting mix and seal in a plastic bag. Refrigerate for 6 weeks. Then remove the seeds and sow 1/8" deep in trays or pots of moistened seed starting mix. Place in a warm area such as on top of the refrigerator or near a water heater. Seeds will germinate in 21-49 days when kept at 60F-70F degrees.
