Q. What is registration and why do people do it?
Q. Just checking to make sure that the two daylilies I helped register online and pay for online, haven't fallen through the cracks. Would you mind checking on those for us? We registered those quite a few days ago.
Q. Just checking to make sure that the two daylilies I helped register online and pay for online, haven't fallen through the cracks. We registered those quite a few weeks ago. We received the datasheets but they have not shown up yet in the online registry.
Q. Could you tell me the total number of registered daylilies to date?
Q. I am trying to find information on a plant I've been growing at a Public Garden. The plant is listed in our plant records as Hemerocallis (X's Unnamed Hybrid) and it is stunning.
It is just beginning to bloom at a height of about 5 to 5.5 feet tall.
The flowers are smallish and a nice, clear, yellow. There are numerous flowers and buds on branched scapes. The overall effect of this plant is beautiful and delicate yet floriferous. [Note: No picture was provided just the verbal description.]
I attempted to find information on this cultivar through your online registry and I was not successful. It is one of the most asked about plants in my garden area when in bloom. Any information you can share about this plant or its origin would be much appreciated.
Q. I heard you are registering the 2013s now (received in July 2012) I want the daylilies I registered last week to be 2013s, can you change the date to make them 2013 introductions?
Q. I have been working on validating my database and see differences between the Daylily Database Online and the hybridizer's introduction year. AHS has Cultivar .A. as 2006 and a catalog has it as 2007. Also for Cultivar .B. AHS has 2010 and a catalog has 2011. Just not sure which year to use.
Q. I have attached some pictures of daylilies that were given to me. The person who gave them to me does not remember the names. I was wondering if you would take a look at them and see if you would know what they might be. The names on the jpg's are just names I made up.
Q. I was wondering if it would be possible to reduce the size of the AHS information which is prominently displayed on the cultivar pictures under the cultivar search. I use the photos on a lot of things and sometimes the printing is so large I have to resort to going to the hybridizer.s site to get a picture in which the entire bloom can be seen. This is not meant as a criticism but only a request to enhance the viewer's ability to see the picture a little more clearly.
Q. I just purchased a daylily that is named Cultivar 'A'. I can't find it in the database. One website lists a hybridizer named "XYZ". Do you have any information about this daylily?
Q. In my garden here are the statistics for registering it, and a picture taken in my garden. Can you take care of registering it?
Q. The picture for cultivar 'A' is incorrect. I am attached a picture of it in my garden in a previous email proving how different it is. Why have you not corrected it in the database yet? You need to correct the picture ASAP.
Q. The Description of Cultivar .A. in the database is incorrect, the flower has never been greater x inches in my garden, nor has it grown more than XX inches tall. It has never doubled, crested, polyed, etc., in my garden. I have told you 3 times and it is still not changed.
Q. Are you aware that there are a number of duplicate names? How can that be? And when will it be corrected?
Q. I have been trying to search for hybridizer John Doe's hybrids. I know that they have registered them as I have seen them in shows and some have won awards. What am I doing wrong with my search?
Q. I used your suggestion above and did not come up with Curt and isn't he also a Hansen?
Q. I believe that there are Pat and Grace Stamile plants that are introduced and registered by someone else. How do I search for those?
