|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?

|Beautiful. Thats just very neat.|

|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.|

|She sure hit the jackpot with that seed. Great flower and and it is so exciting someone is enjoying so far away....yet so close 'in flowers'.|

|Bobbi, it is a real beauty and I know you are thrilled to be able to see it as well as thrilled to participate in spreading the joy of daylilies everywhere.|

|Wonderful! It would be great to get some of the out of country growers posting on here. You did a great thing by giving her some of your seeds.|

Do you ever get photos?
I have sent many a seed (by the AHS seedbank) and sharing but this is the first time that I have seen an actually bloom!

|That one is gorgeous! I didn't see any daylilies when I was in Thailand several years ago...I wasn't really looking and that was pre-addiction.....|

|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|
