The Patterned Tetraploid Daylily (Part 1)
Posted on May 20, 2015 2:52 PM

In this post I will be showing you some patterned daylilies. Here in Oklahoma a lot of daylilies that are supposed to have patterns don't. There are some that have patterns on some days and some that don't ever have a patterned eye. There are very few consistent ones, at least here.

First up is So Many Ripples
This one was trying to have some patterns on it.

This was the best bloom all year, not very impressive, not nearly as nice as the hybridizers pic.

No pattern. :(

So far Barcode has had a consistent pattern!

Pebble In A Pond...
This one was very disappointing, it never had a pattern.
It looked no better than, Border Lord or Canadian Border Patrol.

Dragonfly Dawn. It doesn't have a pattern but it's supposed to be one of the best parents for patterned eyes. So of course I used this one a lot.

It is my goal in hybridizing to make a consistent patterned eye in tetraploids.
I also would like to work on red pattern eyes.
A list of patterns that have not bloomed. That I will post later for part 2.

Marseilles Watercolor
