Daylily - 'Spacecoast Sea Shells'


Daylily - 'Spacecoast Sea Shells'

This is a freak polypetal flower. The one in the background is normal. After crossing this with several others, I collected the pollen that was left over to freeze. While trying to pollenate this with pollen from Blue Eyed Bandit, I put the pollen on both pistils (polys will have double "bits").

Why do you call it freak? It is very nice. In spite the fact, its father was Blue Eyed Bandit :))

Normally - 99.9% of the time, it will have only 3 petals/sepals. Very, very unusual.

I would consider it to be success :))
