Seedfork said:One year I did some with and some without stratification. I got better results from the stratified seeds (they sprouted over a shorter period of time, not spread out over as many weeks as the non-stratified).
sooby said: In published experiments seeds of both deciduous and evergreen species daylilies had some seeds with seed dormancy and some without.
