Sexual Reproduction

A type of reproduction involving the fusion of gametes (sex cells) and their nuclei.

In daylilies, sexual reproduction creates genetically unique individual plants as the result of growing from seed created through cross-pollination. Once a plant is grown from seed, any new divisions it produces are through vegetative or asexual reproduction and the results from this are additional plants genetically identical to the original plant.
