I got the no blues blues! LOL! But Becky, your seedling of Cindy's Tie Dye x Bluegrass Music -- well, I rarely comment on individual flowers cause so many are so splendiferous, but this one? Wow. Just beautiful!

Debra, I think your picture of Red Edition, is the best red Daylily that I have ever seen Drooling It is absolutely stunning, and the white edge is like the cherry on top. I can't wait until it gets into my price range. Great pics, everyone. Have a great and safe 4th Big Grin

Since I am pressed for time, I'm stealing most of the images from the database, and only some of those images are mine. Since we are posting our favorites, some of the photos are seedlings and come with hybridizing clips:

Red

Seedlings 'Bamboo Spitfire' x 'Cameroon Night' and 'Bamboo Spitfire' x 'Justin Brent':

Thumb of 2015-07-03/Polymerous/bd0af7 Thumb of 2015-07-03/Polymerous/5e90ec

While not as favored, these two are appropriately named for the Fourth of July:



White

Dips:



Tets:



and another seedling (begins the day creamy, but gets whiter by the end of the day), 'Sacrament of Healing' by unknown (but very possibly 'Linda's Magic')

Thumb of 2015-07-03/Polymerous/0c02a8

Blues are harder to come by; there are none really here in the garden, so the following will have to do. 'Angelus Blue Skies' frequently polys here (but somehow I don't have any poly images?!!), and the color is variable, some days looking bluer (as in the first image), other days less so. 'Four Eyes', as with many polymerous daylilies, infrequently polys here.

Blue






The current avatar image is that of a volunteer daylily seedling showing cristation.

Kyla - Thank you! My seedling of Cindy's Tie Dye x Bluegrass Music is a favorite seedling this year for me, too! It's one of those ones you glance over and see and do a double take! I imagine a clump of blooms of that seedling would be really lovely!

I am amazed at such beautiful blooms here. Some of the reds are truly outstanding! What a neat thread !

Happy 4th of July to everyone here in the USA! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

Funny, I never thought of myself as liking reds very much, then I started looking through my images for my favorites and had a very hard time getting it down to 3...
Mystic Pizza, big saturated red bloom.


Mercury Lounge, this is the first one that came to mind when picking a favorite red. Love the color and gently pleated form.


Witch Hollow, sorry this is one of mine *Blush* but I love it.


Whites, I keep saying I need more of them, I really do. Had a hard time even finding some! Most of mine have an eye of some sort...not really what I think of as white.

Fluttering Beauty, not very happy here but it does come back and bloom each year. When it does it is an oh wow bloom, huge cream double flowers.


Jocelyn's Oddity, a narrow near white that blooms for a long time.


Whiter Shade, I saw this in Steve Moldovan's garden one year while visiting and ...it followed me home Whistling


Blue....the closest I can get to blue in my garden is in some eyes...Texas Blue Eyes is one of the best I grow for blue eyed blooms. A few others....

Destined to See frequently shows "blue" in the eye.


Palace Garden Beauty has hints of blue.


Screen Pattern will sometimes show different shades of blue in the bands of the eye.

Gale - I got Red Edition last season because of that wide, white edge. The daylily has a beautiful bloom, and it is one of my most sunfast and rainfast reds. However, I was disappointed in the scape height this year. It's registered as having 40 inch scapes, and I planted it to be the centerpiece of a new garden. Well, one of the scapes is 22 inches, and the other is 24, and two of the fans did not scape. I'm hoping this is a weather-related one-time problem. About two thirds of my daylilies are blooming on shorter scapes this year.

Char, Mystic Pizza is a great one. I forgot about that. I'm going to have to think about getting Screen Pattern after seeing yours.

Thanks to everyone who posted.
