        Mike, it is very easy. and the beautiful is what you choose. what you like. mostly it is as simple as taking the pollen from one flower and putting it on another flower. I will find a link that does a more thorough explanation. this is a good start here. you might also want to search on ‘how to hybridize daylilies’ or ‘how to make daylily seeds’ read or watch a couple. this one is a good start http://www.ofts.com/bill/hybrdize.html
        I will try to answer questions if I can. there are lots of places on the web where you can learn. facebook has several daylily pages.

      the daylily did all of the difficult work. i just managed to stand in the right spot and get a decent angle to really show the qualities of the flower. i am always glad when the picture lets me share the flower. glad you enjoy it !
