The STELLA DORA daylilys seem to be done blooming---Ithink--- There are buds that, to me look like seed pods -- is that what they are?? or are they buds ready to bloom??
Stella d'Oro is a reblooming daylily, so it could be sending out new flower stalks with buds. However, if it has just gone through a bloom cycle, it's quite likely that what you're seeing is seedpods. Flower buds are long and slender; seed pods tend to be shorter and more squat.
