    Yes, believing you would take the hint and drop the issue.

    I've been PMd a few times now about pics in the wrong place, and either nobody picked up until recently that they were in the wrong place, or nobody felt that it mattered enough to mention.

    My mistake with this plant certainly wasn't deliberate; the flower to me looks very much like something that could grow from a bulb. Or maybe it's one that can develop bulbs, but doesn't necessarily have to, even though it might be in the same family as those that do. IE, Amorphophallus bulbifer. Clumps with roots. Posting this particular plant in the Tubers club was meant as a contribution. The sarcastic, belittling way in which you treated the error is certainly not the way I would treat a message mistakenly posted in the wrong section of the main forum, especially by a beginner. So, to answer your question, no, you're not right. You're wrong.

    Would you happen to know the name of this plant?

    It looks very much like the hemerocalis hybrid Autumn Morning. Although there are thousands of hybrids now. It is lovely, I do like the ones with the ruffles. Must have something to do with being a floof lover.

    Thanks Diane, I'll have to look that up (or go back to the nursery we bought them from and ask.) So it's a type of daylily then.

    Don't you think it would have been better to PM me with those remarks?

    You used a public forum to try and humiliate me, both with this comment above,
    Dig away! I see you avoided my question.
    and your mocking response to this thread which, it turns out now with Diane's information, had every right to be placed in the Tubers section under which it was found.

    You think I should have PMd you? You should consider the likely responses to darts before you start throwing them.

    Hi all,

    Not sure I want to wade in on this as I seem to have got myself in enough controversy already, but I can't resist. (Besides, my motto states: "If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much room!)

    I confess I was surprised to read daylilies didn't qualify as having tubers. My first daylily was one I found tossed down away on the riverbank near my home. The roots certainly looked tuberous to me.

    OK, I've had a couple of darts--not (so far) from this thread--thrown at me already, yet I'm still standing. (Well, actually I'm sitting at my computer, but that's a minor technicality!) And, I am a brat! (Yeah, I'm the one who has been pointing out things have been posted in the wrong sections.)

    I'm fond of daylily flowers--except for their ephemeral nature (grrr)--and glad to see them posted somewhere. Gorgeous, Bruce & Diane! Please continue sharing them. They can always be moved if they're deemed to be off-topic.

    Cheers,

    Rob

    *sigh* I am beating the dead horse- I know I am. But, I feel I have to since I was positive DL's were tubers and I was going to post my babies on the club side.


    Rhizome
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
    In botany, a rhizome is a horizontal, usually underground stem of a plant that often sends out roots and shoots from its nodes. They are also referred to as creeping rootstalks, or rootstocks. A stolon is similar to a rhizome, but exists above ground, sprouting from an existing stem.
    Many plants have rhizomes that serve to spread the plant by vegetative reproduction. Examples are asparagus and Lily of the valley. The spreading stems of ferns are also called rhizomes. A tuber is a thickened part of a rhizome that has been enlarged for use as a storage organ. They are typically high in starch. An example is the common potato.

    Don't forget to post your favorite tater!
