One of our Club Members, Harland Merriam, collects and hybridizes polytepal daylilies.  The eight pictures above are from selected 2006 seedlings blooming in the spring of 2008.  He has over 1200 poly x poly seedlings from 2007 in evaluation as well.

 

His goal is to create a highly rust resistant, semi-evergreen or evergreen, re-blooming, high percentage polytepal daylily with at least 16 buds and 3 branches with outstanding plant habits and qualities.
