Re: OT: Daylily Seed


Walter, what about seed that's dried? I collected some in 2000 from the
small-flowered yellow daylilies that the hospitals and other places plant
all over town here. I looked it this morning, and it's no longer shiny,
round and black. Do I have to do something to it now to get it to come up,
or can I just plant it, like you did yours in March? Wondering if it's too
old...

Thanks -- Barb
