Hey everyone
Could someone explain the steps in introducing a collection of daylillies ?

Here is the information you need. http://www.daylilies.org/Dayli...
The left hand column should have all or most of the info.

Not quite sure what you mean by a collection, as each daylily is registered separately with a unique name.

So to introduce is more like just registering them?

@Diggerofdirt,
Your wording of your question is a little confusing. Some daylily growers sell new Introductions as Collections.
You can buy this entire collection of 2018 intros for $2100.00.

But each of those daylilies would have had to be registered separately with the AHS.

No, introducing them is not just registering them. The introduction is up to the hybridizer who has to introduce them to the market building up a reputation for plants that folks want to buy. Collections are sometimes sold by hydridizer's who are well established in the market by being known to many people for their quality daylilies as in the example Larry posted.

I like Betty and Larry's answers, but just wanted to add that I am currently evaluating some seedlings, and even though I would not market a daylily since I am not in the business of selling daylilies, I could register a daylily with AHS if I wanted a particular name. Not saying I will ever do that, because I could just as easily give it a garden name and avoid a registration fee.
