'Genesta' is a dormant diploid introduced in 2007 by Bob Marshall and Earl (no further info on this person). There are 27 registered cultivars by Marshall-Earl.
Genesta is a very late bloomer that can re-bloom. It is also considered a bud builder with a listing of 46 or more blooms! Hybridizing potential is currently unknown.
This plant can be found in the NGA Plant Database at:
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Genesta') .
Please join in, if you own this plant! We would love to know more! I award an acorn for performance information posted to this thread.
This photo shows the number of buds that were on these scapes:
Also, please consider adding a "Local Report" to the NGA Plant Database! Thank you!

|I managed to do a trade with Hazelcrestmikeb 2 years ago and got a couple of fans of Genesta from him. It did not bloom the first year but this past summer I had about 3 scapes on it. After it was done blooming, I picked one of the scapes and counted the bud scars. It had 35 buds on one scape. I am sure this will continue to increase as this plant gets established. I could not set any pods on it but its pollen worked fine. As of yet I cannot give details on how fast it has increased.
