(Name date)
Name of the hybridiser and the year it was registered are listed in brackets.

Gene count:
Tet = Tetraploid Dip = Diploid
This is only important if you wish to hybridise your own blooms. Tetraploids can only be crossed with other tetraploids, and diploids can only be crossed with other diploids.

The first number in each listing denotes the height of the flower scapes (in inches) for that cultivar.

Foliage habit:
EV = Evergreen SEV = Semi-Evergreen DOR = Dormant (over winter)
Clarification re Foliage habit:
I should explain here that I personally find some plants listed as semi-evergreen always stay evergreen here in a warmer climate. Dormant varieties flower and do much better in colder areas.
I am frequently asked if daylilies are affected by frost: the answer is no, in areas where it snows they happily spend winter under the snow.
Flowering season in my area of Western Australia is from October to April, however it varies in different parts of Australia and even within our own state .

Bloom season:
EE = Extra Early flowering E = Early flowering EM = Early to Mid season flowering
M = Mid season flowering ML = Mid to Late season flowering L = Late season flowering
re = cultivars which rebloom (ie: continue to send up scapes after their initial flowering)

The last number in each listing denotes the typical size of the flower (in inches) for that cultivar.
