Wow!! I also can give testimony of a tough daylily seedling. It turned yellow and I was doing a test to see if it is dying by pulling the leaves and there I was standing with all the leaves in my hand - after digging it up I saw it was eaten by a mole, there were 0ne root left and it was eaten right into the crown, but I did not want to give up and put the leftover in water - to my amazement it is not only surviving, but it is making new plants contantly while standing in a glass of water!!!
