      Probably not. Ditch Lilies or Tiger Lilies are usually sterile and spread by runners. They usually have 33 chromosomes. Or one and a half sets of chromosomes. Other daylilies can be diploid 22 chromosomes or tetraploid 44 chromosomes. The ones pictured here are tetraploids and were grown from seed. Some of the parents may not have been orange.
