I saw this on Facebook. Some interesting faces shown on the page.

There is an interesting comment pertaining to rust and leaf streak and the use of chemicals for control in the entry for 'Spacecoast Eye Of The Tiger'.

I absolutely love the new Gossard intros! One of my favorite hybridizers, so expensive though! But worth the wait until I can afford them. They do very well in zone 5b( freeze / thaw) too!

Jamie does have some pretty ones to pick from this year. Emperor's Crocodile caught my eye. Smiling His partnership with Spacecoast gives him the ability to grow in FL , this will certainly help him in evaluating his plants for rust resistance. Very nice to read about trying to be environmentally friendly, too Thumbs up

Hi all, not quite on topic but I wanted to ask you all about the best Gossard ' reds' that you grow. I have Heavenly United We Stand but I'd like to add some more of the older reds and I'm just wondering which ones you have liked and which reds you've found to be different ' tone-wise' from Heavenly United We Stand? Any ideas would be so welcome!
Mary Thank You!

Did you notice that if you buy ANY daylily from his website, you will get a free 2016 intro, their choice?

Thanks Jan! I didn't see that when I placed my order with him, when I placed my order I printed off an order form and it said to make a list of sub/ bonus plants. I didn't order any brand new ones but have been thinking about adding some more. So far I have We Can Dance, Chaotic Design, Heavenly Spider Monkey, Power Puff Girls and Raspberry Griffin ordered. I could ordered oodles off of his website if there was an unlimited amount of cash flow coming into our house! Drooling

I've heard Jamie state more than once that he considers 'Heavenly united We Stand' one of his best introductions, if not his very best. SO after that comment from the hybridizer, I'd get that if only getting one of his reds. Here, Megatron and Captain America are also pretty spectacular performers in the red color range.

The 2016 intros that piqued my interest are:

Defense Grid
Heavenly Snow Bird
Swamp Dragon (I could tell it had Alien DNA in it without reading the description--how crazy is that?)
Spacecoast Black Sensation
Spacecoast Vampire Butterfly

Heavenly New Frontiers caught my eye, until I checked out the price $700.00 for a single fan. I have expensive taste and a budget that won't include this beauty. I am sure I will have to wait years until this might be available at a lower cost.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!

Crimson Ninja performed very well here on a new plant last season. It's bred from two converted diploid parents, if you appreciate that sort of thing.

H. United We Stand has very clear color and superb scapes. It was amazing in the morning, but by noon the low humidity and clear skies took their toll, even on 70°-75° days. The dark colors really appreciate warm evenings, humidity and overcast skies.

Of the 2016's, I ordered H. Queen of Sheba having heard very good advance reports about it. I'd love to have H. New Frontiers, but it seems to be priced for a very exclusive audience.

For anyone happening upon this thread and wondering about the Heavenly New Frontiers price tag, this is the reasoning behind it, per Jamie Gossard's website:

"Flowers of Heavenly New Frontiers are pink with lighter watermark and gold toothy edge and green throat. One of the first flowers i introduced that was ground breaking in its time was Heavenly Beginnings. Today the grandkids such as Heavenly New Frontiers have arrived. Like H beginnings was the beginning of my toothy program, H New Frontiers is going to take us into the unexplored regions, the New Frontier. First of all it is the first known Pentaploid. I expect many others to exist, but first registed as. It is extremely pod and pollen fertile. Its pollen sets on 3.5x, 4x,5x ploidy with ease. It and Heavenly Way Big are the most powerful pollens I have ever used in a daylily. The substance is much better than normal tetraploids. Below is a few photos of its different forms. I have even seen color changing and doubling in it. I believe this to be the most important daylily of the Decade. It is an outstanding garden plant as well. Ok, why the high cost. After purchasing a flow Cytometer from BD Accuri C6, i began testing ploidys. I was wondering why many of the new plants I was purchasing from top breeders were so hard to use as pod parents. Below is just a little of the journey. The more i tested, the more questions i have. Im at the point I need to do chromosome karyotyping, the same system used by all the main cancer research labs. It is around $34,000 for a basic system with setup and 3 days of training. . PDF file of my quote can be emailed to you if so desired. Would be hard to get a grant from AHS, so I'm going to sell this flower to buy it. All money from its sales will go to its purchase. I'm still short 5,000 but friends like Mike Holmes have donated Heavenly Queen of Sheba to make up the difference, Thanks Mike. So by buying this flower you are investing in the AHS. A database will be created for all to benefit. We will also be able to offer testing for these services. The hope is to have AHS fund money to hire grad student to run samples. There is about 5,000 funding per year, it did not get used this year. This opens the doors for all hybridizers that want to cross across ploidy levels. I believe we can cross the hexaploids with the diploids to get diploids with tetraploid genes. I have also identified two haploids, such may be a way to make rust resistant daylilies. The possibilities are endless. This is my best daylily I have introduced to date, that why the seedling number was G1. On its maiden bloom, several hybridizers saw it and i was offered $5,000 for it. Its a great daylily! I'm going to keep price at $700 for two years so people who buy it and can make there money back if so desired. Hopefully each region could buy one, or any clubs. Thanks , all of you for making this happen. Any questions, feel free to call...$700 SF. I have very nice plants!"

It sounds like some pretty interesting stuff is going on in his gardens! Thumbs up

Thank-you Califlowers, I've been looking at Crimson Ninja too. I think one of the parents is a conversion of Holly Dancer. Lovely height.
Love Heavenly Bengal Tiger, Snarl and Ring of Magnetism! Oh well, someday!
