I have just returned after being gone for a week, I found what looks like two proliferations growing on one of my noid daylilies and also what looks like my first bloom stalk of the year.

The second night I was gone we had a freeze, wiped out the tomatoes but all the daylilies seemed to have done fine. I snapped a few pictures of the ones I had just planted from Wild's. the Awesome Blossom is showing the least growth, but looks like it will be just fine in a few more weeks. So glad to see some growth on them when I returned.

IMHO Smiling those are not prolifs growing on the scapes, it's just extra long foliage on the bracts. 75% of ours do that each year on first scapes and I have never had one of those like that turn into a prolif.
Your second photo does looks like it has a mini fan attached but I would be surprised if it turns into a prolif.

Seed my guess they are flowers. But fascinating - post photos as they develop.

tink3472 and Gleni,
Thanks, I will keep an eye on them and see what they do, I need an ID for that plant also, so I'll definitely take photos when it blooms and along the way.

tink3472,
You were right, just leaves not a proliferation, the same thing on both plants.
