It is always fun to post the truly ugly blooms, We all have them and hesitate to let others see the not so perfect blooms. Here is the place to post.

I will start it off with one from a few days ago that is more odd than ugly but I have a few of those as well.

Bold One 5-10 FFO Looks like something other than a daylily in conformation.

I have Wild Horses planted in more than one place in my garden. This was the FFO for this location. It never opened more than this!

I remember that the first bloom of the first daylilies that I invested in (meany $$$ at the time) was a two over two.

Might have the pic still on old 3x5 although I doubt I can find it.

Imagine the shock - here I invested in 3 of each cultivar that I chose (remember that old suggestion when buying perennials? --- I went by the book, even with daylilies). They were $25 each!

Then the first highly awaited bloom was an odd ball 2 petals, 2 sepals.

I cried.

But soon recovered when all the other blooms on all the others were fine. And I was hooked!

My first wowsers were HOT TOWN and OUTRAGEOUS which I still love, and a few others no longer with me.

I once did a program at Lilyhemmer on WHAT THE HECK IS THAT? showing oddballs!

This is about the worse I have seen, from last year.

Rolling on the floor laughing I don't have any ugly ones to post, since I delete them as soon as I see them.
