Hi, Ray:

Daylilies also have dormant and evergreen classifications.  There are dip 
daylilies that have also been converted to tet to bring out a particular eye 
pattern, flower size, beauty, color*, etc.  There are a few hybridiziers that have 
taken daylilies to another level, hexaploid.  However, I do not believe that 
there are any in the commercial trade.

*Color: There are a few hybridizers that are trying for green and blue DLs.  
Pat Stamile has GREEN MYSTIQUE ($150 sf); Al Golden has COWBOY SCARF ($150sf); 
& George Doorakian has MALACHITE PRISM ($75 sf) & EMERALD STARBURST ($150sf).
