|I'm trying to figure out the branch count on this one, I've read the guidelines several times at the AHS site, I'm still unclear. |
Any input is appreciated, TIA!

|Good question! Is it a 3 or a 4? Do you count the main scape as one of the branches or not? I would be curious to know as well as I have come across this same dilemma. |
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters, compared to what lies within us.

|I'm a newbie to branch counting but I'd like to take a stab at it. |
Looks like a zig-zag scape with 2 branches plus a terminal-V which equals a total of 4 branches.

|Not much experience at branch counting either, and I am guessing four also.|

|I see five, If I read right, you count two for the far right branch, because there are multiple buds on both branches. Thats how I read the AHS description on bud counting, but I could very well be wrong.|

Are you referring to the AHS Daylily Dictionary instructions for branching? It says there "A terminal V is counted as 2 branches and a terminal W is counted as 3 branches. A scape that does not divide into a V or a W at its terminus is counted as 1 branch."
