Daylily Species

Identification of species is real problem, partly because plant scientists and taxonomists do not agree on what is a species and what is a variety. What is shown in this listing is what Stout thought were species, and he had  paintings of them done at the New York Botanical Garden. Of course, many species have been discovered in Korea, China and Japan since Stout’s day.

Various sources on the Internet display many supposed species that obviously bear little resemblance to what is shown here. They are most likely early hybrids. Any final resolution awaits serious DNA studies.

We grow about fifteen varieties of the H. fulva species and about thirty yellow and orange species and their varieties. I have only listed those below that seem fairly representative of what Stout thought could be identified as legitimate species.

This year we are adding two special species; a tall, unnamed fulva from Yunnan, China; and a tet conversion of the old reliable H. citrina. These are priced separately at the end of this list.

Photo no. 20. Tall triploid fulva from Yunnan. Five inch flower, redder than Korean or Europa, 67 inches tall here. Very fertile with tets. I've been getting some great seedlings from this plant. $50 DF.

Photo No. 21. Tet conversion of H. citrina. Spectacular in a clump. $25 DF.

$15 per double fan.
