Pod

The fruit of the daylily in which seed develops and ripens. Technically, it is a “loculicidal capsule,” meaning that its walls become dry and then split when the seeds are ripe as shown below. Pods form if the flower has been fertilized. If you deadhead your plants, they will not form pods. See also: Deadhead, locule, capsule.
