From the American Hemerocallis (Daylily) Society dictionary of terms:

Diploid:
"A plant having two complete sets of the basic set of chromosomes. A diploid daylily has 22 chromosomes. One set of 11 comes from the egg cell, one set from the sperm cell in the pollen."

Tetraploid:
"Having four sets of chromosomes in each cell of the plant (in daylilies, 44 chromosomes altogether.)....."

See also their FAQ section on the difference between diploid and tetraploid:

There are also a few triploid daylilies.
