daylily seedling survival

I've grown a few daylilies from seed over the past years.  They are pretty 
tough once they are old enough.  Don't worry too much if the seedlings are 
4 to 6 months old; new leaves will grow out to replace any that the sun 
burns off.  At this time of year, I'd get them into the ground outdoors as 
soon as possible so they can start developing a good root run.

I'd be happy to answer any other questions.
