Bama Bound - look at all the pollen on the pistil

This is Bama Bound.  I show this picture to show you how much pollen is on a daylily.  The long thin flower part in the center that looks white is and sticking straight out is the female part of the daylily, all the 6 little stamens are the male part of the daylily that holds all the pollen.  This one's stamens are loaded with pollen!  If ever the pistil and stamens meet and you don't pick off the dead flower, a seed pod will develope and next year there will be seeds to plant.
