I love the colors of these daylilies. This is the sort of color palette I love best in my own garden. I'm definitely going to have to get more daylilies! Beautiful garden!

Thank you. I'm loving all the lavender shades, green throats, yellow spiders, ruffles and wire edges.

I really like the tall, more etheral daylilies; the newer shorter "fuller" blooms are pretty, but not for my garden. I've got some truly lovely old "Hyperion" (very tall yellow; lovely fragrance)...a friend sent roots to me from his grandfather's garden in Mississippi. We are not sure if these are the "Lemon Lily" or not, but think it might be safer to call them "Hyperion." These are the kind I love...like the "wild" H. fulva, I love to see them nod and dance in the wind.

I tip my hat to you. I'm liking the tall spiders more since all these I grew from seed have started blooming. Lovey dubby

Wow, that's great...from seed! THey must be like your little pets.... Do you have any that you've bred yourself?

No, I won the seeds on The Lily auction. Can't hardly wait until they make full clumps. I dabbed pollen from one to the other hoping I will get some seed pods. Our weather has been so hot and dry lately not many are setting pods.

I've never tried hybridizing/breeding anything... I would love to try my hand at Iris (among my fav. flowers). I have a couple small clumps of very old odd looking iris that I think would be good "parents" to match with some modern iris. Maybe someday when I have the time....
