I played with the idea of a collage using some favorite daylilies. The first one is Brocaded Gown; #2 is a purchased seedling from Brookwood some 20 years+ ago. (1996: And I do not know if they are still a business.) #3 is Gentle Shepherd; #4 is one of my seedlings and #5 is Siloam Virginia Hensen. As you can see these are fairly old cultivars, but they still grow and inspire.

Thanks Ladies,
The one Susie commented on is actually one of my first 'serious' attempts at hybridizing. It first bloomed in 2003, and for the record it is Seedling #2003-A13. I still have it, but never got around to registration because of work, time constraints and family; and I'm sure there are others out there equally as nice. I don't mess with hybridizing any more, and only focus on keeping up the grounds and gardens. And that (at my age) is a full time job (if not a miracle)! Smiling

Beautiful collage, Leon. Whether they have names or not or whether they are old or new ones, they are so beautiful and I agree that yours is the prettiest of them all. Hurray! I tip my hat to you.

Thanks everyone for your comments, thumbs and acorns. It's been a great week in daylilies; and the rain has stopped its 'monsoon' habits here in the Midwest! I wish you all a safe, enjoyable and carefree gardening week-end! Smiling
