Mona - Lexington Lace is an excellent rebloomer and parent. The petals are usually darker than my picture. With the heat, the color has faded some. Mutton Jade is one of my very best late bloomers. It will set seed in the hottest temperatures, has great buds and branching, and has had instant rebloom scapes each of the three seasons I've had it. None of my seedlings with these parents has bloomed yet, so I can't tell you about the results. The red one, Cherokee Star, usually holds its color very well. But not on these 104-109 degree days we've been having. Bullfrog Kisses is a new one for me this year, so I don't have experience with it yet.

I don't know if any red can handle the weather we've all had this past week. I grow most of my reds in shade and even they wilted this past week with the heat. I grow most of my plants in pots and the ones that get the most sun look terrible. The foliage looks like it was burned about half way of each leaf on alot of the pots. some look ok but they are struggling that's for sure.

I've had a bunch rebloom for me this year and I've really been pleased with that. I think they have really appreicated all the repotting last fall. The fertilize and alfalfa pellets probably had alot to do it with it too. Oh me, it'll be time to add more fertilize and pellets in just 2 short months. Ugh, I don't look forward to that.

Thanks Ann for the info on your plants. I really do like Lexington Lace and Cherokee Star. I'll be looking for them on the Auction, maybe someone will have them.

I ordered Bullfrog Kisses this past winter, and when I got my order - they were sold out. Sad On the other hand, if I wait, perhaps the weather will improve. Between the extreme heat, drought, thrips and earwigs, I wouldn't be surprised to loose a bunch over the winter, just because of all the stress. So waiting a few more years for that one is fine by me.

This is one of my old Cottage dips - 8C. The color isn't great, but it is a blooming fool - so for now I keep it around. It is fun to compare these old ones with the newer hybrids

Toltec Sundial. It begins opening at night. And the seedling garden named "Patty's Gift" it is Little Jasper Spider x Cascading Blue

This is one of Fred's spider seedlings - it is apparently nocturnal, and opens at night, then hangs out for a full day. and Wandering Wings twins

Jan - I hope you will get Bullfrog Kisses in the future. It's such a nice daylily. You have some pretty seedlings in your collection, and I like the idea of a red bed.

Thanks! I like mostly the dark colors = especially reds (as if one couldn't figure that out!) Also, those glowing oranges catch my attention, followed by purples and yellows and ..... Big Grin

Here I thought everything had stopped blooming, and then I found a few more...

These bloomed a couple of days ago:

HERE LIES BUTCH - FFO - I don't know if this was trying to poly or what, and I did see a poly of it on Linda Agin's website. Taken in early morning shade and sunlight.


DREAM WINDOW


WESTBOURNE HARVEST MOON



Taken this morning:
TUTANKHAMUN - Rebloom


COMPETITION - Finally a flower that's hardly water spotted. I really love this daylily, and there are lots of buds!


WINDSWEPT DREAMS


PRISONER OF TIME - Love the soft orange color and bright purple eye


EDGE OF EDEN - The flower is darker than my picture shows


MAZIE FARR


SUPER MODEL - Really love this one!


ITTY BITTY BLUE - So cute!


LITTLE SURFER GIRL - This is so cute that I just keep taking pictures...



And I'll finish with pictures of a seedling that Kathy (dormantsrule) shared with me last year. I just love it, and the last flower that I didn't take a picture of had more TEETH!

COMPETITION is one of Bill Maryott's -- if you were to place an order with him, even a very small one, and indicated you would love to get COMPETITION as a bonus plant, I'll bet he would send you one! He is sooooooo generous and loves to make people happy!

Nice blooms everyone, we are way down here. I cut all the scapes in the hybridizing area that did not have seed pods, so they might increase, these are in the display area.

I did the same in mine and it seems everytime I cut off a scape on some they send up another one in defense.
