  • Posted by SunriseSide (Wood Co TX & Huron Co MI) on Dec 14, 2023 8:05 AM concerning plant:
    Looking at the many diploid children of this cultivar [tetraploid kids have Tet Monica Marie as a parent], the registered ploidy is likely incorrect.
  • Posted by Calif_Sue (Sebastopol, CA - Zone 9a) on Dec 14, 2023 7:19 PM concerning plant:
    The registration info on the American Daylily Society website has this listed incorrectly as a tetraploid. It's been corrected here.
