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

"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."

"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.
