Father Kenan Ryan is NOT a diploid; it is a Tetraploid; hope this helps hybridizers.

Named for another grandson; this beautiful cultivar is also popular in our northern states because of its dormancy.

The flower color of my plant is a beautiful deep rose pink. While some websites show this color, others show a satin pink or orchid pink, which are also beautiful.

By GrandKidsDaylilyFarm on Sep 26, 2017 12:01 PM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Grand Kid Ethan')

Named for a grandson, Grand Kid Ethan is not only beautiful, but very fertile and multiplies profusely. He chose this one to carry the name.

By GrandKidsDaylilyFarm on Sep 26, 2017 11:21 AM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Michael Burmudez')

Michael Burmudez is named for a Costa Rican American; the beautiful dark red bloom is very ruffled, and when days are very hot, the flower's edge becomes almost black; fertile and very desirable, it is one of our popular cultivars.

By GrandKidsDaylilyFarm on Sep 26, 2017 11:01 AM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Otis Dobson')

When I first saw this beautiful multicolored bloom, I knew it would be registered. It is named for a great friend and fourth cousin who died way too early; Otis was a Cajun artist who loved not only art, but also his flowers and plants. God must have needed someone to help grow the majestic flowers in heaven when he called Otis.

James Hemmings should be Hemings, but it was registered with Hemmings; named for Thomas Jefferson's personal chef, brother of Sally Hemings.

John Pelham is the first of many reds that I have introduced; reds are my favorites among the Tetraploids, and I knew this one was going to be registered the moment I saw it with its radiant glow. Great for hybridizing as it is fertile both ways; many of my reds come from this great dormant cultivar.

By GrandKidsDaylilyFarm on Sep 25, 2017 7:23 PM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Love's Limelight')

Love's Limelight is a beautiful yellow with a chartreuse green glow in the morning; bloom will become more yellow in the heat of the day; I knew this one would be registered the second I saw it, and it is my best yellow today, although there will be more introduced later that may challenge it.

By GrandKidsDaylilyFarm on Sep 25, 2017 2:04 PM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Love Never Ends')

I am the hybridizer of this cultivar; Love Never Ends is very beautiful when in its full glory; however, it will not bloom well when disturbed or transplanted; it has to be established well for it to bloom successfully; it will display a single bloom on its last bloom, usually a plain single pink and white flower, still very pretty. It loves water, more water than fertilizer; but we all love to eat, so do daylilies, but always give it water if nothing else.

I am the hybridizer of Four By Four; it is one of my most popular daylilies. Pollen is very good, but it is pod difficult; be persistent as it will make pods; made two this year for me; its pups are usually double, sometimes poly.

Fast grower and a good climber with lush green thornless foliage flushing bright red as it comes into flower.

By lauribob on Sep 25, 2017 12:25 PM, concerning plant: Dahlia 'Sunshine'

This is one of my favorite dahlias. It's not one of the giant types, so it doesn't need staking and does fine in a moderately windy location. It blooms prolifically if deadheaded regularly. The dark foliage is really striking against the yellow flowers and does well both in containers, and as a bedding plant. I feed these with diluted liquid fertilizer in containers. They just get what everyone else gets out in the flower beds - a spring topdressing of manure or compost. I rarely remember to lift them in the fall so I pretty much think of them as annuals in my zone 5 garden.

By valleylynn on Sep 25, 2017 10:36 AM, concerning plant: Hen and chicks (Sempervivum 'Dragon's Eye')

Here is some history on the lovely sempervivum:

JungleShadows said: It's one that I gave the whole clump to Toby (Young's Garden Center). It's number was A2-7 and my notes say "bright red, with better red color than Killer". That's about right. It also seems to be one of the bigger ones from the self pollination, harking more back to Killer's pod parent in form and color.

Kevin


youngsgarden said:"That's one of Kevin's (Vaughn's) cultivars. It was one from the first year that
he got back into hybridizing semps.
He was using Killer a lot then if I recall correctly.
Because there were so many good varieties in Kevin's first batch of seedlings,
that one was never officially named.
We kept the unnamed seedling because we liked it a lot and it increases well.
One of our children started calling it Dragon's Eye so
when we began selling it in 2016 we just put that name to it.
Hope that helps,
Toby Lander
Young's Garden"

By pod on Sep 24, 2017 1:43 PM, concerning plant: Hot Pepper (Capsicum annuum 'Aleppo')

The seeds for Aleppo pepper were generously shared. This was the first year I tried it.

This single plant was grown in a raised bed in full sun. It has many fruits on it.

I plan to let them ripen and dehydrate and grind to use as a pepper seasoning in foods.

By RoseBlush1 on Sep 24, 2017 12:25 PM, concerning plant: Rose (Rosa 'Mr. Bluebird')

Interesting fact about the registration and marketing of 'Mr. Bluebird' ...

When Ralph Moore introduced this rose in 1960, miniature roses were in fashion, so he registered it as a miniature rose even though it is a china rose. He used the miniature classification because he said, "No one is interested in buying a china rose".

In some rose literature, it is a cross of Old Blush (a china) x Old Blush. Ralph has said it is a self seedling of Old Blush. Since the pollen parent is uncertain, standard practice is to say it was open pollenated.

Like many chinas, it does need to be pruned lightly in spring for a more prolific bloom.

my 8 yr old desert rose got waterlogged by way too much rain. I was checking it & noticed that it had soft spots. I've removed it frm pot & washed it off. It's not rotted but when depressing, it feels kinda spongy. Pls. help me, I love my baby.
