Reading the Listings

The name of the cultivar, the hybridizer and year of registration is followed  by the price, the description of the flower, the season of bloom, height and flower size, foliage type, and other characteristics.

The height, flower size and season are what the hybridizer registered for his growing location but may vary somewhat. Rebloom is often registered but is not always reliable in our northern climate. I have noted in the description, some of the plants that have rebloomed for us.

Noc

Nocturnal - flower opens late afternoon or early evening, stays open all night and closes during the following day. If not stated, it is diurnal, opening in the morning and closing in the evening.

Ext

Bloom remains open at least 16 hours. May be nocturnal or diurnal.

Foliage

Dormant -(Dor.) the foliage dies back to the ground in the winter.
Semi-evergreen - (Sev.) some signs of green may be visible in the cold weather.
Evergreen - (Evg) The foliage remains partially or completely green depending on the growing zone. In colder regions most of the plants behave as if they were dormant.

Diploid vs. Tetraploid

Diploid daylilies have 22 chromosomes; tetraploids (*) have double the number at 44. This is only important for breeding purposes as dips cross with dips and tets cross with tets.
