One thing is for certain, there are many different ways to grow daylilies from seed besides the way we do it here. These are just some of the articles and websites we reviewed when prepared to grow our first daylily seeds! We suggest looking into specialized sources, as many of the very general websites that come up in web searches consist of vague and/or potentially misleading information. But, overall, daylily seed growing is an easy and rewarding project!
