A daylily normally has 3 petals and 3 sepals for a total of 6. Any bloom that has more than 6 is considered a poly bloom. Sometimes you will have 4 petals and 4 sepals for a total of 8 or 5 and 5 for a total of 10. Sepals are the smaller of the petals.

Gardenglory, Bela Lugosi did it for me last year. This clump is rewarding me for taking 3yrs to bloom. This led me to buy another from Nutsford-Karen. Hers polys also.

I love open hearth. I know its old and 'simple', but I love mine.

It reminds me of Cindys luscious lolipop, only a totally different color. I love that too.

These daylilies are registered tet polymerous daylilies, though OSTERIZED rarely produces poly blooms for me here.

From left to right: OSTERIZED (a little faded in the evening), HIP TO BE SQUARE, and POLLY WOLLY DOODLE.

***

I forgot to mention that none of these photos were from today, though they were all from this season. OSTERIZED and HIP TO BE SQUARE are still in bloom (both had flowers today but OSTERIZED blooms were all 3 x 3); POLLY WOLLY DOODLE is done (unless I get some late rebloom).

Hemlady, I got it as a gift plant last year from Mike Grossmann. It didn't bloomed then. Hope you have better luck in your first season with it. As I stated above, both fans sent up two scapes at the same time.

Mike, your poly NOID reminds me of Mildred Mitchell and also Lambertson's Bird Talk. Here is a picture of MM in our garden last June. Our pictures are not organized, so I have to go through all the pictures taken to find a certain daylily. If I ever run across one of Bird Talk, I'll try to remember to post it.

I hope you can get an ID. It is a pretty daylily that tends to poly. Have you tried to set a seed pod to see if it is a tet or dip? MM is a tet. and FL is a dip. Good luck! Let us know what you find out.

Best of luck in finding the identification. It is so hard to ID one since many look alike and also blooms look different depending on where they are grown. Just enjoy it. Being a high percentage poly (this summer) is "icing on the cake", and hopefully it will continue to be.
