The AHS registration data has it that this is a spider double, because the cultivar was registered prior to the creation of the polymerous class. The AHS data has apparently never been updated. http://www.daylilies.org/Dayli...

I used to grow this cultivar years ago (not any longer). It typically produced 85% of its blooms as 4x4 polys for me. The blooms were also typically something of an asymmetric mess. This can be somewhat corrected through hybridizing, but it can take two or more generations to do so.

I still have a seedling http://garden.org/pics/2016-04... that is a second-generation descendant of 'Four Star'. The blooms are mostly symmetrical, but sometimes they are, a little bit, not.
