in the database under plant traits, if it only lists diurnal, does this mean that it is not a reblooming daylily?

Out of context, diurnal only means day blooming.

ok then, if it does not say reblooming in the plant traits does that mean that it is not a reblooming daylily?

I would think that is the case.

That very issue was addressed in a long thread last month. Best I could determine, the answer was "yes no maybe" Thumbs up

For me, gardening is really just an excuse for playing in the dirt. Admittedly, plants are a satisfying by-product.

Moved to the Daylily Forum.
Some hybridizers registered their intros as reblooming, some don't.

@Calif_Sue, well, my outlook on that is if it is a rebloomer and they know it is, they best state that fact if they want me to buy it

I understand it to mean that the cultivar has not rebloomed in the registrant's garden, but it could rebloom elsewhere.

I think the thing to remember is that the registration information is based on the hybridizer and where the hybridizer created the plant. It's known that plants will rebloom more easily or more often in places where it's warmer and there is a longer growing season. If I hybridize a plant in Northern Illinois, and it doesn't rebloom here, that doesn't mean if I gave it to someone in Charlotte that it wouldn't rebloom there, and maybe grow 5 inches taller to boot. Unless the plant is hybridized near your location, you have to take that into account when you read the registered information. It might not apply to you at all.

Would be cool if, before you registered the plant, you could give peices of it to AHS test gardens in different conditions, so "certified" registration data could be determined by qualified, trained testers that would be consistent and the data would be relevent for different zones/conditions. But what are the odds of that ever happening?
