Last call! Any seeds not sold by the end of 8/17/16 (tomorrow, Wednesday) will be placed in the seed swap. If you had your eye on any of these crosses, please let me know ASAP!

My sweetheart and I had to make a decision recently that meant I would not have more land this year to plant seeds. Disappointing for me, Thumbs down but possibly great for some of you. Thumbs up As I continue to come to terms with the reality that I won't be able to plant all of my seeds that I thought I would be able to, I may be adding more to the list. (If I do, you'll be able to tell which are new because they will be the ones at the bottom, numbered 76+...and they'll be out of alphabetical order, too.) If you have difficulty viewing the list (as those of you viewing on a phone might), please let me know.

I'm posting the list FIRST (and I will edit it if I add more to the list). After that, as/if I have time, I will post pictures of the crosses and possible information about each in future posts.

If you want (or are interested in) a packet of seeds, please post below. You are more than welcome to send me a Tree-mail, but if multiple requests come in for the same packet at roughly the same time, the person who responded first in this thread is more apt to get it (I just don't have time to compare time stamps in a tree-mail to the time stamps in the thread.)

Please note, my hybridizing goals are for quality plants that make a colorful impact in a landscape. I do *not* have any 'designer' daylily (patterns, sculpting, etc.) crosses from 2015. The seed crosses you see below reflect my goals and interests in creating very richly-colored daylilies that can create a beautiful impact in your yard, even from a distance. Many of my crosses involve rich reds, bright oranges, deep reds or purples (some near-black), and near-whites. Many of my daylilies (and their crosses) have rich, saturated colors, though some may have eyes or white/cream midribs or they may have edges of a different color. Another goal of mine is for daylilies with good substance (petals) and thick scapes, so most of the daylilies I hybridize with have one or both of those attributes.

Okay, so here's the list...

To understand each line, it goes in this order: pod parent, pollen parent, pollination date, harvest date, in-fridge date, number of seeds, ploidy, price (Some may be missing one of these elements, but most should have all of this information.)
Note: all of these listings include ALL of the seeds from the pod...I have NOT split any of what's listed for sale below. I know a lot of you are used to getting seed packs on the LA that came from a larger stash that has been split into about 5-6 seeds per pack. Not here! Some of these packets have over 20 seeds!
[I may, however, give bonus seeds that may come from pods that have been split.]

If you are not happy with these seeds once they come to you, please let me know! All seeds have been twice-checked for squishies, with squish tests done at time of harvest as well as after drying/before going into the fridge. All seeds have been refrigerated plenty long enough, so you can plant them as soon as they get to you. They're ready and waiting for you to give them a new home!

1) "BECKY'S CURLS" (GARDEN NAME) - SEEDLING 1 x SYMPHONY OF FIRE 16-Jul-15 31-Aug-15 - - 5 T $5
"Becky's Curls" is one of my favorite daylilies in my garden! Although I discovered this year that it is actually a clump of two different siblings, so your seedlings from this cross may have been from a pod parent with curly petals or one with crispate petals (see pictures above). Becky's Curls is a tall variety (about 36" or so last year, about 30" this year) with a bloom that seems far bigger than it measures (about 6.5" if it's the curly version, and probably about 7-7.5" for the red crispate version?) and very strong scapes. The color is beautiful and she has a slight fragrance that I would hope she would pass onto her kids. Symphony of Fire is an absolutely STUNNING daylily with a very velvety (although sometimes waxy) substance. Holds up GREAT in the heat.

2) AMERICAN REVOLUTION x OLALLIE KEITH STONE'S SUNSET 22-Jul-15 22-Sep-15 08-Oct-15 27 D $10 SOLD
American revolution is about as black as the near-black daylilies come, although it can sometimes appear rather red in photos. It's color is rich and dark, and it's form is nice. The more exciting of the two parents is Olallie Keith Stone's Sunset...it can appear differently depending on the weather, often more red in the morning or when it's cloudy, becoming more orange with a red eye in sunlight. It's curly form is wonderful, and it has a coppery or 'gold dusting' glitter to it. Last year it's bud/branch count was very average (on par with the stats as registered), but after a year of settling in my garden, it had an incredible turnaround and this year it exploded with branches (4-way branching) and buds (each scape had something like 30 - 50+ buds). I'm really excited to see what this cultivar throws to its babies. Please note that any cultivars with red, yellow, and purple genes in the mix (such as this one) could end up with brown babies. I made this cross in the hopes I might get a copper-colored cross. (This is one of few offerings with this as a parent--I kept most of the others.)

3) BEAUTIFUL EDGINGS x (RED CHALLENGE?) 15-Jul-15 30-Aug-15 02-Sep-15 24 D $6 SOLD
Beautiful Edgings is a classic. She is a pale yellow base color with pink edges - not usually what I look for in my garden, but she has rightfully earned her place. Stick your nose in her bloom to enjoy a soft, sweet fragrance and sit back and watch as her pale yellow fades to white throughout the (sunny) day. Pretty. "Red Challenge" is a NOID that I picked out from a local daylily seller who had it in his garden (not in the for-sale spot) and agreed to sell it to me. He never knew the name of it, but explained that his neighbor had given it to him over thirty years ago. In a whole field of daylilies, this one, not-really-for-sale beauty jumped out at me and I'm grateful he sold a clump of it to me. Whether it is a registered cultivar or not, we'll never know, but I mostly gave up searching. It's a spider-type daylily with a small-ish bloom and a brilliant star-like pattern (white midribs). In my garden, it has darker foliage than most of my other daylilies. And BOY is it fertile!...I'm not sure if that's a trait that is passed on to babies, but we can hope. Overall, this cross was done for the fun of it because there are SO MANY possibilities for the babies!

4) BEAUTIFUL EDGINGS x JOAN SENIOR 12-Jul-15 31-Aug-15 03-Sep-15 12 D $4 SOLD
Two classics! Read above for description of Beautiful Edgings. Joan Senior is often said to be one of the whitest (near-)whites. Sometimes in my garden she has a pale yellow tint, but it usually fades to a very white white later in the day. This cross was intended to get a seedling that looks just like beautiful edgings, but is whiter. Edited to add: Ironically, Beautiful Edgings is whiter in the picture than Joan Senior, but I think that's because in my garden, Joan Senior is under a tree (shade) whereas Beautiful Edgings is in all-day sun.

5) BEAUTIFUL EDGINGS x SAINT ELMO'S FIRE 21-Jul-15 07-Sep-15 12-Sep-15 22 D $7
This cross was meant to be fun, with LOTS of possibilities! One great attribute of Saint Elmo's Fire-- aside from being a gorgeous, big daylily--is that it is a bud-builder. This cross is an attempt to cultivate that feature for those who enjoy bud-building cultivars.

6) CLOUD BARON SO x MANY STARS 23-Aug-15 02-Nov-15 - - 6 T $5 SOLD
So Many Stars is so beautiful, and is loved by so many, but my biggest issue with her is her lack of petal substance. Enter Cloud Baron...he has the substance and the strong scapes (wow were they thick scapes last year!) to fix what SMS lacks. Should be some beautiful babies...




Thumb of 2016-07-22/DogsNDaylilies/0f9e39 x
7) CUPID CALLING x LIBBY'S TRAIL 28-Jul-15 20-Sep-15 01-Oct-15 5 T $5
Both of these parents have ruffled edges and I was trying to bring the bright red of cupid Calling into the gorgeous bloom of Libby's Trail. Libby's Trail has beautiful gold bubbly edges that, as you can see in the photo, are *almost* toothy. If you're a hybridizer, I could see seedlings from this cross possibly ending up in your bubbly and/or toothy hybridizing program. Regardless, Libby's Trail is a somewhat shorter variety, but blooms above the foliage for me and has great substance and thick scapes. (I should mention that Cupid Calling is VERY red...not pink like the picture shows. I'll try to update the picture later if I think of it.)


x
8) EARLY AND OFTEN x HEAVENLY ANGEL ICE 27-Jul-15 20-Sep-15 01-Oct-15 22 D $6 SOLD
Early and Often isn't particularly special to me except that it is a reliable rebloomer (which is uncommon here in the northern states). The better part of this equation is Heavenly Angel Ice, which is a GORGEOUS near-white. The picture doesn't do it justice. It's normally much whiter than this, particularly after a sunny day, but atleast you can get a feel for it's graceful, stunning form from the picture. A true winner! Considering both parents are rebloomers, the hope for this cross was a white daylily that starts earlier in the season and has a lot of rebloom (and lots of time to rebloom).

x
9) FEAR NOT x MATCHLESS FIRE 19-Jul-15 14-Sep-15 20-Sep-15 6 T $7
I'm running out of time at the moment to write descriptions, but I think the pictures speak for themselves on this cross!
Edited to add: With both varieties having a watermark (Fear Not's being more of a coral-pink and Matchless Fire's being an unmistakable orange), I would expect the babies to have watermarks, too, but perhaps in a variety of color blends. This, too, I thought would be one of the first seed packs to go, but it looks like it is still available for any red bloom loves out there as of the time of this post!


x
10) FEAR NOT x RUBY SPIDER 21-Jul-15 16-Sep-15 01-Oct-15 11 T $8
Again, not enough time to write a description at the moment, but the pictures speak for themselves. And I will say this...NO garden should be without Ruby Spider...or one of her descendants! Hilarious!
Edited to add: Wow, I'm surprised this one wasn't one of the first seed packs spoken for, but it's definitely a cross for someone who likes red. Both parents have beautiful form--Ruby Spiders being somewhat Spatulate and Fear Not's being...well, I'm not even sure what to call it, perhaps spatulate as well, but in a different way? They are both gorgeous gorgeous blooms and I'm curious whether the watermark on Fear Not will prevail gene-wise in the offspring or if Ruby Spider's cheery yellow throat, encroached upon by red veins from the petals, will get the corner on the kids' phenotypes.

11) GENTLE SHEPHERD x MARGO REED INDEED 01-Aug-15 28-Sep-15 08-Oct-15 7 D $5
Margo Reed Indeed, a highly sought after cultivar, has a beautiful form and tall, slender scapes. Gentle Shepherd brings a clearer white to the table (commonly cited as being one of the whitest whites) and thicker petal substance.

x
12) GENTLE SHEPHERD x THANKS TWO FRIENDS 08-Aug-15 05-Oct-15 25-Oct-15 18 D $5 SOLD
Gentle Shepherd has the clear white genes and Thanks Two Friends is a double with a great color. She never photographs accurately for me, always appearing much redder or pinker than she is, but she is a medium to dark purple with a darker purple eye zone. She blooms early in the season and reblooms again mid-season here. The hope is that she will pass on those genetics to some lavender-colored babies. If you like light purple/lavender daylilies, this cross is for you!

13) GENTLE SHEPHERD x Unknown - "MYSTERY WHITE"? 31-Jul-15 28-Sep-15 08-Oct-15 14 D $4 SOLD
This was a white match in heaven. No unknowns here, just two, clear whites as parents. If you want seedlings that are uniquely yours, but you know you want them to be as white as possible, this is the match for you. This cross was part of my quest to create a true-white. It may never happen in my lifetime, but if it does, it'll almost undoubtedly come from a cross like this.

14) JIM'S PICK x BLACK PLUSH 22-Jul-15 16-Sep-15 20-Sep-15 15 D $5 SOLD
The color on Jim's Pick is hard to describe in words, but it looks like your eyes are drinking in a peach-mango smoothie. Many of my daylilies are fragrant in my garden, but Jim's Pick is heavenly. Black Plush is a beautiful, deep dark near-black that always gets attention and compliments. It won people's choice in one of the categories at the regional daylily show last year and I have seen other, well-known hybridizers using it in their hybridizing program in recent years. It's an oldie-but-greatie. Thumbs up This cross was made in the hopes of getting a purple-hued polychromatic daylily, with most of the features of Jim's Pick, but pulling in some of the color of Black Plush. Also, I should note that Black Plush poly's for me a LOT in my garden. It isn't registered as a poly, but it doesn't seem to know that. I would guess that about 20-25% of the blooms have atleast one extra petal or sepal (or more).

15) JIM'S PICK x LITTLE GRAPETTE 29-Jul-15 24-Sep-15 08-Oct-15 8 D $3 SOLD
Jim's Pick has a larger, polychromatic bloom with pink and peach coloring, whereas Little Grapette brings a medium red-purple to the table (the picture shows it far more pink than it is...imagine the same intensity of color, but in purple). Little Grapette has small blooms whereas Jim's Pick has large blooms. Little Grapette has shorter scapes and Jim's Pick has taller scapes. This cross was done for fun, but with the hopes of seeing a wide range of sizes and colors.

16) JIM'S PICK x SAINT ELMO'S FIRE 16-Jul-15 08-Sep-15 12-Sep-15 14 D $4 SOLD
This should produce babies with a WIDE range of looks. The blooms couldn't be much more different in appearance. Add in the fact that Saint Elmo's Fire is a bud-builder and Jim's Pick's fragrance and some of these babies are likely to have some GREAT traits. Ideally, it would be fun to see a poly-chromatic, bud-building baby with white midribs and heavy fragrance come out of this combination. This one should be great!

18) JOAN SENIOR x BLACK PLUSH 14-Jul-15 16-Aug-15 25-Aug-15 4 D $2
Looking to see some pink or purple spider-types? This cross should give you a range of pinks and/or purples in its babies.

19) JOAN SENIOR x MARGO REED INDEED 11-Aug-15 26-Sep-15 08-Oct-15 13 D $6 SOLD
This cross was done to improve the white-ness of Margo Reed Indeed with Joan Senior's superior clarity of white...as well as to increase the strength of the scape over Margo Reed Indeeds scapes. I remember last year a bunch of people were looking for Margo Reed Indeed...this is a chance to get the Margo Reed Indeed genetics in, possibly, an improved form by way of seedling.

x
20) JOAN SENIOR x OLALLIE KEITH STONE'S SUNSET 15-Jul-15 05-Sep-15 12-Sep-15 6 D $5
I don't know for sure what the purpose of this cross was, but it stands a good chance of being a sparkly pastel (whether pink or peach) that may or may not have an eye. OKSS was VERY bloomy this year for me, so it is my hope that the babies from these seeds will produce bloomy plants, too! OKSS is a very early bloomer, whereas Joan Senior seems to be a mid- to mid-late bloomer in my garden.

[Please forgive the fact that I'm using someone else's picture for Joan Senior. I don't have ready access to many blooms of Joan Senior because she just started blooming very recently and all of last year's pictures of her aren't on my main hard drive. The few pictures I have don't represent her true color.)

21) JUNGLE BEAUTY x BEAUTIFUL EDGINGS 01-Aug-15 03-Oct-15 08-Oct-15 6 D $3 SOLD
I made this cross again earlier this year, too, because I think it has a lot of potential. Jungle Beauty has a LOT of pigmentation and is about as black as daylilies get (this photo doesn't do it justice in the least). If you like green throats, you'll love that Jungle Beauty also has a VERY green throat, too. Beautiful Edgings brings the edges to the table and, now that the genetics have been married into these seeds, I would hope that they would turn out a range of pink and purple babies (maybe even red), with beautiful edges and maybe even some ruffling. Both plants have different textures to their petals, but both have good petal substance. Beautiful edgings is more ridge-y and textured, whereas Jungle Beauty seems to be somewhere between more velvety and more waxy. Jungle Beauty also has very strong branching and budding habits. A great set of parents with a lot of potential and possibilities for their offspring. There's "beauty" in both of their names, which really says it all. Rolling my eyes.

22) JUNGLE BEAUTY x HEAVENLY ANGEL ICE 14-Aug-15 14-Oct-15 25-Oct-15 15 D $7 SOLD
See the above description for Jungle Beauty. I matched her with Heavenly Angel Ice because HAI brings a beautiful, ruffled, spidery look to the mix. HAI is a cascade of ribbony petals, as well as lots of buds and branching (which Jungle Beauty also has). I would expect some pretty lavender UFO's from this one.

23) LIBBY'S TRAIL x FUNNY VALENTINE 17-Jul-15 17-Sep-15 01-Oct-15 6 T $5 SOLD
As you can see from the picture, Libby's Trail has a beautiful, yellow, bubbly (sometimes almost toothy) edge. The blend of the yellow throat into the pink petals almost glows. Her scapes are very strong and the foliage is a good color. Libby's trail seems to be a tough-to-find, uncommon cultivar, so it's nice to have her in our garden and to be able to offer seeds from her. Funny Valentine also has great color to the leaves and excellent red color to the bloom. The goal with having him as a pollen parent is to create seedlings that are nearly just like Libby's Trail, but with more red (since I prefer red over pink). Funny Valentine also has very strong scapes, so I would expect the seedlings to have this trait, too. FV also has a ruffled edge, so it's likely that most or all of the seedlings will have, at a bare minimum, ruffled edge, but I would expect at least some to have the bubbly, nearly-toothy edge. Either way, this is a nice pairing!


x
24) LIBBY'S TRAIL x MATCHLESS FIRE 28-Jul-15 28-Sep-15 08-Oct-15 5 T $7
See above description for Libby's Trail. As for Matchless Fire, it's a great daylily! The flower's 'face' somehow reminds me of a very alert or eager cartoon rabbit. From the side, the form of Matchless Fire is usually that of a fleur-de-lis. It's a stunning daylily and is one of those cultivars that you can recognize a yard away. Very distinctive, it is one of those flowers everyone should have. It gets a lot of 'oohs' and 'ahhs' from people, and it's easy to see why. This mix of genetics between Libby's Trail and Matchless Fire is likely to produce red-colored babies, but beyond that, it's hard to say what genetic combinations will pop through because they have such different forms and other attributes. I anticipate this being one of the more popular seed packs I'm offering, but we'll see...

25) LIBBY'S TRAIL x SO MANY STARS 16-Jul-15 16-Sep-15 20-Sep-15 23 T $6 SOLD
See above for description of Libby's Trail. So Many Stars is also described above, I believe. SMS brings greater height to the table while Libby's Trail balances out the more slender scapes of So Many Stars. My guess is that this cross will result in pink babies, with or without bubbly edges, with or without dark pink eyes, and with medium-tall scapes. I would also imagine the thick petals of Libby's Trail would improve upon the delicate petals of So Many Stars.

26) MARGO REED INDEED x BECKY LYNN 04-Aug-15 29-Sep-15 08-Oct-15 7 D $7 SOLD
Margo Reed Indeed, a much-desired daylily in recent past, combined with Becky Lynn, something of a classic (and previous Stout Silver Medal winner), should produce some pretty pink babies. Margo Reed Indeed is a near-white with a bit of a yellow or green cast to it and lighter substance. Combined with Becky Lynn, I would expect the babies to have ruffled edge, perhaps more elongated petals than the standard daylily form, and likely a white midrib? I would expect some variation in height on the seedlings' scapes, too.


Thumb of 2016-07-23/DogsNDaylilies/2fc9dd x
27) MARGO REED INDEED x JOAN SENIOR 11-Aug-15 05-Oct-15 13-Oct-15 19 D $9
Margo Reed Indeed and Joan Senior are both near-whites whose blooms start out the day with a yellow-green cast to them. Joan Senior's blooms bleach out to a near white very readily, though, moreso, I think, Than Margo Reed Indeed's, and I would love to see that trait passed on to the seedlings. Joan Senior is considered to be one of the whitest whites, and I would agree with that, for the most part, even though the picture doesn't show that.


x
28) MATCHLESS FIRE x FEAR NOT 19-Jul-15 07-Sep-15 12-Sep-15 6 T $6 SOLD
I expect this will be one of the more popular seed packs I offer in this list. Both have stunning color and are similar enough that it would seem to be easy to predict what the coloring of the offspring would be: red base with a lighter watermark in some shade of pink or peach, I would think. I would expect some eye-popping babies out of this pairing.

30) MATCHLESS FIRE x RUBY SPIDER 24-Jul-15 09-Sep-15 16-Sep-15 4 T $4
One of the brightest and one of the cheeriest daylilies, this coupling of genetics should produce a winner or two in its seedlings. This is a combination I intend to repeat again in the future because the possibilities are tantalizing! The only drawback to this pairing is that both parents only have 2-way branching, but Ruby Spider puts out so many scapes in my clump that it doesn't seem like that. (My clump of Matchless Fire is too small to determine how bloomy it is, so the lack of comment on that is not indicative of sparse blooms.) Ruby's scapes all seem to be nearly exactly the same height (whereas in other cultivars, there can be significant scape height variances), which gives her a nice, even look in my garden, something I would hope would be passed down. Just looking at the pictures of these blooms...wow. Good stuff here.

32) OLALLIE KEITH STONE'S SUNSET x AMERICAN REVOLUTION 18-Jul-15 01-Sep-15 05-Sep-15 20 D $8
American revolution is about as black as the near-black daylilies come, although it can sometimes appear rather red in photos. It's color is rich and dark, and it's form is nice. The more exciting of the two parents is Olallie Keith Stone's Sunset...it can appear differently depending on the weather, often more red in the morning or when it's cloudy, becoming more orange with a red eye in sunlight. It's curly form is wonderful, and it has a coppery or 'gold dusting' glitter to it. Last year it's bud/branch count was very average (on par with the stats as registered), but after a year of settling in my garden, it had an incredible turnaround and this year it exploded with branches (4-way branching) and buds (each scape had something like 30 - 50+ buds). I'm really excited to see what this cultivar throws to its babies. Please note that any cultivars with red, yellow, and purple genes in the mix (such as this one) could end up with brown babies. I made this cross in the hopes I might get a copper-colored cross. (This is one of few offerings with this as a parent--I kept most of the others.)

33) OLALLIE KEITH STONE'S SUNSET x BLACK PLUSH 15-Jul-15 01-Sep-15 05-Sep-15 15 D $7
This pairing is similar to the one above, although Black Plush is more spidery. Black Plush has been known to poly a LOT in my garden, so I would hope that trait would pass down to any spidery babies that might come from this pairing because it's pretty neat. The heavy recurve on OKSS combined with the spidery form of Black Plush makes me wonder if this might also spring up some curly kids.

34) OLALLIE RED x "BECKY'S CURLS" (GARDEN NAME) - SEEDLING 1 24-Jul-15 18-Sep-15 01-Oct-15 16 T $7
Olallie Red makes a beautiful clump, but the best part of Olallie Red is that it keeps throwing unique blooms in my garden. It polys more than any other non-poly in my yard (it may be tied with Black Plush, it's hard to say) and even once had what I would call a sculpted bloom, with each petal 'canoing' and sticking straight out like a trumpet. (note: this is not a sculpted cultivar, it just happened to have a sculpted bloom.) Becky's Curls is a nice pairing with Olallie Red because it is truly a UFO (regardless of whether it was the original Becky's Curls or the sibling in the clump with it) that will add either crispate or crispate-curly genetics to the mix.

She's about as orange as they come, which should make for some nice, bright babies that may or may not have midribs or red eyes. Tuscawilla Tigress also has nice, big blooms and thick scapes. She's listed as nocturnal, which potentially brings in nocturnal genes to the mix, if that's something that interests you. (In my garden, she is less nocturnal and more of a late-morning riser...I guess it depends on how you look at it, though...maybe she's just a really early nocturnal in my yard.)

40) PARDON ME x AMERICAN REVOLUTION ? 18-Jul-15 14-Sep-15 20-Sep-15 13 D $4
Pardon Me is teeny, with deep red blooms registered at 2.75". (Pardon Me is also registered as nocturnal, if you're interested in nocturnal daylilies.) When I harvested these seeds, two wires were found around the same developing pod because the wire around the pod next to it (that aborted) wasn't on tight enough and fell down. SO, either Amer. Rev. OR Gentle Shepherd pollinated this Pardon Me pod (and the other aborted). Won't know until it's planted and grows.

American Revolution is quite a bit bigger, which means you could get teeny to medium, to anything in-between. American Revolution has the beautiful, rich, near-black color (with just a hint of red to it) that lasts throughout the day very well in my garden.

Gentle Shepherd is often regarded as one of the whitest near-whites and, at the end of the day, I would agree. It has a light ruffle to it and a slightly crepe texturing to the bloom.

41) PARDON ME x BLACK PLUSH 15-Jul-15 30-Aug-15 02-Sep-15 10 D $3
This was an attempt to create a shorter and/or smaller spider daylily. Pardon Me is registered as nocturnal. Black Plush often poly's in my yard, something I hope would be passed down. Both of these daylilies have been described previously, so please refer to previous descriptions (or the database) for more details.

42) PARDON ME x JIM'S PICK 22-Jul-15 13-Sep-15 20-Sep-15 7 D $3
'It wouldn't hurt to have a little red polychrome with pretty fragrance in my yard...' No doubt that's what I was thinking when I made this cross. Jim's Pick is possibly the most fragrant daylily I have...or atleast it's in the top fragrant. It's a beautiful poly-chrome color that busts through my loosely-held 'no pastels' rule because I love it so much. The color is hard to describe. Now pair it with Pardon Me, which is also fragrant, and there has to be some beautiful, deeply-fragrant seedlings to arise from this one.

43) PARDON ME x SAINT ELMO'S FIRE 08-Jul-15 30-Aug-15 02-Sep-15 14 D $4
This one is likely to result in some smaller spiders, possibly with midribs. Saint Elmo's Fire is a bud-builder, so that could get passed on, too, in theory. Lots of possibilities with this mix except for the color...I'm pretty sure all of the seedlings on this one are going to be red. Rolling my eyes.

44) PARDON ME x STARMAN'S QUEST 12-Jul-15 30-Aug-15 02-Sep-15 18 D $5
See previous descriptions for Pardon Me. As for Starman's Quest, I've seen pictures from other hybridizers who use Starman's Quest and get some nice 'patterns' on their seedlings as a result. (Not to be confused with the subtle 'patterns' found in newer, eyed daylilies.) Starman's Quest is also highly variable, the base color appearing mauve some days, medium purple other days, and sometimes fairly close to pink. I would expect anywhere from medium-pink to red-purple seedlings on this, anywhere from small to medium-large blooms, anywhere from short to medium-tall scapes, and I would imagine most would pick up on Starman's Quest's midribs and/or eye, but it's impossible to say for certain.

45) PENNY'S WORTH x AMERICAN REVOLUTION 02-Aug-15 02-Nov-15 04-Nov-15 5 D $2
I thought it would be neat if I got some orange seedlings out of this cross. I truly don't know what to expect from the black-red American Revolution and the light-to-medium-yellow of Penny's Worth. Penny's Worth has dark green, grass-like foliage, so if you like dark green foliage, this might be a nice cross. Both of these are older varieties, but I can't say for certain whether or not they are rust-resistant, only that I've gotten the impression from previous comments that older varieties may be more rust resistant than many of the newer varieties of daylilies. (Please don't hold me to that, though, as I have no certainty of the matter, myself.) Penny's Worth is a tiny bloom that rests just above the foliage, but American Revolution is a much bigger bloom that stands at a medium height, so there is some variability in the genetics on this cross. Curiosity really gets at me with this one, but I'll just hope that someday, whomever purchases these seeds will share photos of the resulting seedlings.

46) PENNY'S WORTH x STARMAN'S QUEST 15-Aug-15 07-Oct-15 - - 5 D $2
LOTS of possibilities with this cross! Will the seedlings be yellow, peach, orange, brown, purple, pink...? Will they be small blooms or large blooms? Tall or short? It's hard to say, there are so many possibilities with this cross and I imagine it will be lots of fun watching these seedlings develop their blooms. Will they resemble each other, or will the siblings reflect the wide range of genetics in this cross? Fun stuff!

47) Penny's Worth x Unknown 15-Aug-15 22-Oct-15 04-Nov-15 21 D $6
If you like surprises, this one might be worth trying! Lots of seeds here with lots of possibilities! Unfortunately, Penny's Worth's scapes browned (darkened) very quickly during the harvesting season and so I didn't see any permanent marker label on it (if there was one) to suggest who the pollen parent might be. If it had a wire tag at one point, it must have fallen off. Or maybe a bee pollinated this one? If you purchase this one, I could go into my records and see which pollen parents I used on Penny's Worth and try to give you suggestions on what the pollen parent could possibly be. If you prefer the surprise of it all, though, I won't spoil it. Rolling my eyes. (If you post pictures of the blooms in the next couple of years, I could try to make a guess at the parents if you want.)

48) ROYAL FROSTING x OLALLIE KEITH 17-Aug-15 13-Oct-15 25-Oct-15 6 D $3
WHY I don't have a better picture of Royal Frosting, I have no idea. The picture truly doesn't do this plant justice in the least. Royal Frosting is a superb white, and is exactly what a white, traditionally-shaped daylily should be. It sparkles, it is very white (not the peachy-white that the picture shows), it has excellent bud count and branching with a nice, long show of buds over the season. It is also very fragrant and has excellent petal substance. Olallie Keith is another, highly fragrant variety with beautiful purple coloring to it. Olallie Keith's petals have average substance, so I was hoping that Royal Frosting would contribute greater substance to the offspring. Olallie Keith also has a pretty midrib that I would expect could only be a crisp white in the offspring, but only growing them out would tell. I mentioned that Royal Frosting was sparkly (diamond-dusted) and had a lot of buds and Olallie Keith also seems to share these traits. From this pairing, I would expect seedlings with strong scapes, great petal substance, nice bud- and branch-count, strong fragrance, and blooms that may or may not have midribs, may or may not have pink petals, and should have diamond dusting.

50) RUBY SPIDER x "BECKY'S CURLS" (GARDEN NAME) - SEEDLING 1 24-Jul-15 08-Sep-15 12-Sep-15 4 T $5
I made this cross a LOT last year because I was very excited to see seedlings from this. Apparently, these two flowers really like each other because most of those seed pods took! Some of those resulting seeds are already seedlings in my yard right now, but I can only plant just so many, so these are some of the surplus, offered for you to enjoy. Both of these have previously been described, so please refer to previous descriptions. In short, though, I expect big, red, velvety, cheery blooms on tall scapes from these two parents. And I would expect some sort of UFO, but since Ruby Spider is Spatulate and the two possible pollen parents are crispate and crispate-curly, it's hard to say which UFO is likely to represent itself most in the seedlings!

51) RUBY SPIDER x FUNNY VALENTINE 16-Jul-15 10-Sep-15 16-Sep-15 7 T $6
This cross will hopefully combine the cheery, LARGE blooms of Ruby Spider (maybe even capturing its unusual, spatulate form) with the heavy petal substance, dark green foliage, and rich red coloring of Funny Valentine in some way. Funny Valentine is shorter than Ruby Spider, but still stands above the foliage. (Funny Valentine has so much red color, it has been known to 'bleed' on me when I'm reaching around its day-old petals, but I don't care so much because it holds its red so well throughout the day and I hope that color-fastness holds true in its offspring. I don't recall Ruby Spider ever bleeding on me, but it is definitely a color-fast daylily in my garden, too.)

52) RUBY SPIDER x MATCHLESS FIRE 19-Jul-15 15-Sep-15 20-Sep-15 5 T $5
This is an exciting combination! I've described and gushed about both of these parents previously, so please read earlier descriptions. In short, expect vibrant red or red-orange seedlings from this pairing!

53) RUBY SPIDER x SYMPHONY OF FIRE 06-Jul-15 07-Sep-15 12-Sep-15 8 T $6 SOLD
Since this one is already sold by the time I'm posting this, I'm not going to go into too much detail, but these are some GREAT parents. I don't know why Symphony of Fire didn't stand out to me last year, but this year (2016), I found myself constantly eager to go out and gaze upon it. BEAUTIFUL!


x
54) RUBY SPIDER x TUSCAWILLA TIGRESS 22-Jul-15 16-Sep-15 20-Sep-15 3 T $4
This cross should be really interesting. These two parents really liked each other because I ended up with quite a few seed pods (although not a large number of seeds, unfortunately) from these. Tuscawilla Tigress has a shape that I don't care for all that much, but I love Ruby Spider's shape, so I was hoping the seedlings would get RS's shape moreso than Tusc. Tigress's. What Tuscawilla Tigress has to contribute, however, is the electric orange color and lighter midribs, as well as noctorunal genes (if you like that), and fragrance. (I should note that her frangrance is, at times, very detectable, and other times I don't notice it...which isn't to say it isn't there, but rather that it's possible that it's not there, not fragrant, on certain days. Overall, though, she's usually quite fragrant.)

57) SAINT ELMO'S FIRE x AMERICAN REVOLUTION 18-Jul-15 01-Sep-15 05-Sep-15 14 D $4 SOLD
I'm pretty sure this combination, when I made it, was to get a dark-red version of Saint Elmo's Fire. Since this pack is already sold at the time of this post, I won't elaborate further.



x
58) SAINT ELMO'S FIRE x EARLY AND OFTEN 29-Jul-15 16-Sep-15 20-Sep-15 9 D $3
I'm not sure what I was going for here, to be honest. Maybe a peachy-colored, smaller spider with a white midrib? I'm not into pastels all that much, but what Early and Often has going for it is that it is pretty true to its name: it is one of the first bloomers in my garden at the beginning of the season and it reblooms here in the north. Saint Elmo's Fire is a bud-builder, so if the seedlings don't have reblooming, maybe they will be bud-builders? Or maybe they'll be reblooming bud-builders? Who knows?


x
59) SAINT ELMO'S FIRE x JIM'S PICK 21-Jul-15 07-Sep-15 12-Sep-15 24 D $6
In a perfect world, this cross would produce seedlings that are highly-fragrant (like Jim's Pick), large (like both parents), red poly-chrome bloom, possibly with clear-white midrib (like SEF), on bud-building scapes (like SEF), with thicker scapes (like Jim's Pick). With 24 seeds, it's certainly a possibility!...

Last Call!
Any seeds that aren't sold by the end of tomorrow (Wednesday, August 17th) will be placed in the seed swap. If you're interested in buying one of these seed packs, please let me know ASAP! I will be closing this thread out sometime around dinnertime tomorrow, most likely, so get in while you can!

If you're interested in the seeds, but don't let me know in time, you can join the DND's All Seeds Swap (Int'l) by going to the swap main page here: http://garden.org/apps/swap//
and click on and join the correct swap; that way you can try to claim dibs on them within the seed swap....and you can get other types of seeds, too! It's a very economical way of getting a wide variety of seeds, but you do need to contribute some of your own seeds. (See swap for details.)

DND I'm surprised these listings where not a huge hit for you. I would have purchased a few but I'm flat broke and things don't seem to be looking any better in the near future. It's a shame you put so much time and energy into your listing for such low sale numbers. If it's any consolation I didn't sell a single plant on my listing. the NGA classifieds just don't seem to get that much traffic but you did manage to get nearly 600 views and sold a few packs so there was interest in the listing. Maybe with school starting back it just wasn't a good time for people to be buying things besides school supplies and clothes. Good luck with your swap hopefully it attracts a lot of people, you really have some great crosses my friend. Thumbs up

Daniel, thank you for the kind and reassuring words!! Group hug I wasn't sure what to expect, so I'm not as disappointed as I might have been if none had sold. My seeds went to multiple homes, so that says something! I'm really sorry to hear that your listing didn't get any buyers, but I completely agree with you, it can be tough to sell here on NGA when there's a lot of trading and freebies going around, LoL! Have you tried listing on the LA? Personally, this was a learning experience for me before I go on the LA and start selling seeds in the future. I wanted to sort of dabble in seed selling first, but now that I'm getting more and more daylilies (and irises!)--including some that have teeth or sculpting, since that's what many people seem to love most--I'm pretty sure I'll be selling on the LA in the next year or so.

I'm really glad that you liked the crosses I had. Lovey dubby I'm pretty happy with my assortment of daylilies that I have and--I know I've said it before, but...--I am a big believer in daylilies that make a great garden impact...unless people plan on having hordes of people over to their house for open gardens, patterned daylilies and some of the more collector-style daylilies go unnoticed and unappreciated by the masses.
