|I am wondering if a dormant daylily can pollinate a semi evergreen daylily, as long as they are both diploids or Tetraploids? I am just getting started in breeding daylilies, and wonder if they can be cross pollinated. If they can, would their seeds produce sterile daylilies?|

|Yes, a dormant daylily can pollinate an evergreen daylily and the seeds will not be sterile as long as tetraploids are crossed with tetraploids and diploids are crossed with diploids.

|Alicia in addition to Robin's comments, I am not sure if you are aware that some plants are sterile. Always check before you buy.

|Not to detour this thread, but is that a common thing? Sterile daylilies?
I've seen daylilies that were pod-sterile, or pollen-sterile, but other than, for example, ditch lilies, are there that many that are completely sterile?
I'm not a hybridizer, so this is new to me. I'm interested to know.
