Well at least one!


This was kind of a thrill this past weekend...

A lady came to the garden with this photo of one of my 'seeds turned daylily'!

She was here a few years ago and loved all the daylilies but of course she couldn't have any plants shipped over there. So I had suggested that maybe she could try some from seeds. I went to the fridge and pulled out some seed packs for her to try and gave her instructions. She came this year proud as punch to show me her favorite. Looks similar to AHA and TA-DAH. Well, kind of!

She wants some more seeds this year, so I'll dig through my crisper and see what I can send her back with this year.

I was thrilled.

I wonder if there are others in Thailand?

Very nice!!! It is thrilling to know that your seeds are growing in another country. I know as a seller I have sold my seeds to many different countries and I get excited about that every time I do sell to someone over seas.

I agree with Mona ... how exciting to see the love of daylilies around the world, and how nice that they were shared in this way! Group hug

I agree with everyone's comments. That is a beautiful blossom.
The lady must have been on cloud nine when she saw what

I have never seen any photos from seeds that went to other countries but I have had some people here in the states send me pics and some have been really nice. In fact one lady, Becki Pavlik, even registered a couple of my ufo's.

Yes Bobbi - there are 14 daylilies growing in Ban Sai that I started. I haven't seen pics but I know the 3 different crosses. One of them was [(Frozen Mert x Never Say Never) X RFK]. Some of those would make good mates for that seedling you have a pic of. Who knows???? Maybe we're starting a new trend in Thailand Hurray!
