TBGDN's Plant List

A note from TBGDN
All plants listed have at some time been grown here on the property. In most cases they still are. Time & circumstances might have changed the current status of some plants. For example annuals might be here one year and gone the next. Some veggies are dropped because of poor quality or lack of hardiness and disease resistence. Status can be summed up with terms like, "permanent perennial residents, losses due to weather, diseases, annuals only, or simply vanished for unknown reasons". As time permits I will attempt updates & edits where needed. Should anyone have a question don't hesitate to T-Mail me. Thanks for browsing my list.

Thumb Plant Status Notes Events
Image BW-1996-1AA
Have
Daylily Seedlings
This was another seedling bought in 1996. I suppose beauty is always in the eye of the beholder, as some seem to discount the looks of this bloom. To me it has remained a part of my gardens and landscape for 20+ years now with no regrets.
Image BW1996-10
Have
Daylily Seedlings
This is the 10th of the purchased seedlings of 1996. It has a pleasing form of wide petals and sepals, and a rich shade of violet red. The throat is a green bursting into yellow radiating onto the petals. What is remarkable is the height of the scapes: ranging from 42 to 46 inches to the blooms. The 2nd picture shows a 3-year clump at peak bloom.
Image BW1996-2
Have
Daylily Seedlings
This is the third of ten seedlings I bought in 1996. I do not know or care what the judges or critics think: I buy a plant because it appeals to me, not them! This is a huge bloom, widely flared, tall, and has appealing colors. Visitors are in awe of its size & appearance.
Image BW1996-3
Have
Daylily Seedlings
Another in the BW line of purchased daylily seedlings; containing large wide petals, and a pastel cream of coloring. Notheing spectacular, but well worth the $5.00 I paid for it back in 1996!
Image BW1996-6
Have
Daylily Seedlings
This is also a purchased seedling from 1996. I bought it primarily because of the wide sepals and the hint of apple blossom pink in its colors. It makes a beautiful bloom, and in this case the extra petal and sepal.
Image Daylily Seedling BW1996-4
Have
Daylily Seedlings
I bought this plant as a seedling in 1996 from a professional grower who dabbled in hybridizing. At that time the grower was nationally known and published an annual catalog. The blooms are large and open well after cool mornings.
Image EL2003-A11
Have
Daylily Seedlings
This is another seedling I kept over the years, and like some others I cannot quite get an accurate picture of the correct color. It reminds me of concord grape somewhat, but the real life color is much superior to this.About 24" bloom stems (OK Scapes for the experts).
Image EL2003-A13
Have
Daylily Seedlings
This is among my first attempts at hybridizing in daylilies. I saved this one primarily because of shape and colors, and it blooms well too. It is heavily veined and crinkled and this particular bloom has gone through hail storms and the color is ways off: It is a true pink. Better pictures are being added later as time permits. (Weather is always a problem here for photography. Being an amateur doesn't help either!)
Image EL2003-A7
Have
Daylily Seedlings
This is a better quality picture showing a more accurate representation of the color. I am also posting a second photo to match the two blooms. Both are in shade with sunlight overhead. So there is ample lighting, but not strong.
Image EL2004-A15
Have
Daylily Seedlings
This is another seedling from my early days in pollen daubing. It seemed as though I waited an eternity back then for a seedling to sprout and grow. This process often required three years minimum. This one was a personal hit as soon as I saw it. It is also the picture I posted on the generic data base page years ago on August 9, 2008.
Image EL2006-A24
Have
Daylily Seedlings
This is one of my very own seedlings. 2006 indicates the year it first bloomed. I cannot remember the parentage, but I think it involves BW-1996-1AA, another seedling that I bought somewhere. I was aiming for pastel colors with soft pink. The scapes can reach almost four feet on some clumps.
Image EL2006ESP
Have
Daylily Seedlings
This is a seedling that I can only describe as a bee pod since I do not recall having pollinated for it. Having said this I have not kept good records of any of them. Another point; my camera does not accurately get the colors correct, especially the red shades. This bloom is more pastel than what is shown in the picture. And I refuse to Photoshop color on any picture.
Image EL2008-C
Have
Daylily Seedlings
I am almost certain this came from a bee pod near or on Gentle Shepherd, but I cannot be 100% sure. Another fact is that it is not always this shade of white, but may have a little pink or peach blush on the petals. It is well worth keeping which I have done since 2008.
Image EL2008-H
Have
Daylily Seedlings
This is another one of those seedlings that I've lost track of origin. I do not think it was a bee pod because few of those were saved: usually I cut them off green and let them fall to the soil. This picture is just a little under color correctness because it should show more of the pastel pink influence (of which I like).
Image EL2011-A
Have
Daylily Seedlings
This is one I've played around with for five years; lost it; then found it and now have a couple of fans with noteworthy blooms. Or at least in my eyes they are noted worthy. I guess I like the dark coloring. But among 50,000+ daylilies who is ever going to notice?
Image Iris Seedling #IB-2010-10
Have
Iris Seedlings
This iris first bloomed in 2010 from a cross between SDB, Bluebeard's Ghost X SDB, Wish Upon A Star. I have determined to keep it as a memorial to my hybridizing efforts, and because it is an exceptional grower and bloomer. Its height is roughly 16". My description is best left to a picture of its color and other features. I'm sure there are other IB's out there equal in quality, likeness, color and growth habits. That is the primary reason I have never registered it.
Image NOID-EB-NA
Have
Daylily NOIDS
This is a sumptuous bloom. It came to me from friends several years ago without a name, and it is not a seedling. (as far as I know) The color is almost a perfect match from camera to real life vision. It has a good medium height scape (30" max) and blooms are outstanding.
Image NOID-EB-NASH
Have
Daylily NOIDS
This is a beautiful large daylily with brightly "popsickle orange" blooms. Its substance is thick, and easily stands up to most weather. It was given to me as "Orange Sherbet", but that name does not check out. It is very much worth keeping in the meantime.
Image NOID-ST
Have
Daylily NOIDS
This was bought several years ago under the name "Sugar Time". It is neither that cultivar, nor the Siloam Sugar Time. I do not know what it is, but have decided to keep it as a NOID. It's too bad since it is a nice plant with lots of scapes and blooms.
Grown From Northern Michigan Seedling Balsam fir (Abies balsamea)
