I got 4 Corey, but am weakening on three others. There would be no Ahead seeds without Miss Davi.

Psssssst...guys!

Those of us on here who know Judy know she is both wickedly talented and extremely humble about her creations...

So just something to think about...

Judy describes her new CONSPIRACY THEORY as one of her "best landscape plants to date." What this REALLY means is that once this plant is established, it will be so huge, bright and showy that it could probably be seen from space, even under heavy cloud cover...

But don't take my word for it...see for yourself! Just don't plant it too close to the road or you may be dealing with a string of constant traffic accidents!!

What a collection! Davi has been my mentor for more years than I can count. Her vision and hard work are infused throughout my intros and seedlings. And now, I might even need to buy that yellow too! And I don't do yellows...lol.

I like to ask the hybridizer for their favorite plant... she said conspiracy theory. I told her to add it on. She told me " give it LOTS of room "

Steve…Big mistake. Big. Huge.

(Remember the movie "Pretty Woman"? Lol!)

I agree…Judy is the reason I started to hybridize…and she is the reason I no longer have a "mixed perennial garden"!

Count me among those in the Davi fan club!! Such wonderful plants that gal creates, and they perform so beautifully here. Last year after visiting her garden, I placed a huge order, so felt like I should try to show a little restraint this time and only ordered the two that caught my eye first, WEBSTER GIRLS and GLASS CEILING.

So many of Judy's plants grow here now that I probably need to install some sort of shrine.

Judy described "Conspiracy Theory" to me in a conversation back in August.

" Best PLANT that I've ever seen... nice blue/green hard dormant foliage."

Judy says Yellows are a hard sell ..... maybe this one will be the exception. It's not sold out yet folks. Thumbs up

That's interesting. I have a few different yellows and the thing I have noticed, is that next to the dark colors, they are difficult to photograph accurately. They tend to all come out looking the same which I guess is one reason they may be harder to sell.

I had to go back and look at CONSPIRACY THEORY and PLAYING WITH CRAYONS Lovey dubby . Then I started scrolling through the the others. And frantically closed the window!

James, it also can be hard for people to tell the different yellows apart in situ. Even 'gold' is a casualty. I had a morning tea for some friends to see my daylilies last week. Someone remarked "You must like yellow ones - you have lots of them." I wanted to strangle him. He was saved by an 84yo man who said that there were actually all different kinds of yellows.
