Once the scape is above the foliage it will not fit into the box unless it's a small daylily. I don't cut short scapes, that's up to the buyer when it's received. For myself, if I receive a daylily with a scape I will not cut it off, not enough stress on a healthy daylily to worry about. But I also set seed on 9 month seedlings so what does that tell you.

OK, I am confused!
I think what you are saying is that you only cut the scapes off if they will not fit in the box?

Regarding my scape hunt, I think I just found one on Lotus Position. This plant came last fall from CT Daylilies and it was a very nice size. We had warm weather through November,and I wonder if that's why it is showing now,

We received our daylilies from Spunky today. We received the same wonderful daylilies as in the past. Three were 2018 introductions bought from their website, and one was a Lily Auction win. Only one was a double fan. The others were clumps (5 to 7 fans). One had two tiny scapes just putting up. We'll see if they make it. I will probably cut them off, so scapes will put up later. All are potted up for now.
