I know this isn't very fancy, but this is a daylily cross that I made and the first that I had bloom. I lost the tag so I don't know what it is exactly but it is either 'Centerpiece' crossed with 'Route 66' or 'Rocket City' crossed with 'Route 66'. (I'm leaning toward the 'Centerpiece' cross.)

Very nice! It's funny that some of my very first crosses were between those same plants, but my seedlings were UGLY!!!

Awesome first baby! Lovey dubby I love the darker eye and the dark tips on the sepals!! Encouraging to hear that, even if I have to wait another few years, I may see my own first baby some day! Group hug

Kelli, I dabble in hybridizing, too. My first crosses were so ugly that I thought I was a failure at it. Hilarious!

But -as time marches on- the chances of getting a decent-looking bloom improves, so I'm never giving up.

I have lots of seedlings from my own crosses as well as a few from seeds I won online.

I balk at paying $100 for a new plant, so bidding on seed crosses bearing the new ones is the best way to introduce them into my, rather, ho-hum garden.

I have started all my seeds indoors for the coming season and I'm currently 'baby-ing' them until I can transfer them outside. That should be in a couple months.

I encourage you to keep doing crosses....and add a new plant into the mix every now and then....you'll be happily surprised one day! Thumbs up

Congrats on your baby, Kelli! It is exciting to see something go from seed to bloom, especially when you created it yourself.

Kelli, now you know how it feels to have a new baby. It feels
awesome, doesn't it? And, is that one a bi-color? Nice baby. Hurray!

Kelli - That's a beaut! Are you going to name it and register it?
