        There is no genetic engineering in daylilies. You are entitled not to like the rippled petals. It is your choice. However the ripples have absolutely nothing to do with genetic engineering. It is strictly normal genetic variation. As for home seeds there is no such thing in daylilies. First daylilies are perennials. The historic plants and any established lines are propagated by good old fashioned vegetative division. No one that I know of creates ‘heirloom’ seeds from daylilies. If you are looking for historic plants there are people who grow and sell them. One simply has to look and find those growers.
