This daylily is a pentaploid. Gossard's flow cytometry work with ploidy is uncovering some amazing variations in ploidy. Some cultivars even throw fans that are hexaploids and octaploids. It may well be that sometime in the future these new ploidies will require revision of the choices in the ploidy box on the input form. It now allows only diploid. triploid, and tetraploid. Note that no ploidy is given for 'Heavenly New Frontiers' because the choices are limited to the three mentioned above.

It can also be noted that it is currently listed with the AHS as a Tetraploid, though it is correctly stated as a pentaploid in the AHS color description.
