I only have one tet spider, Free Wheelin and it hasn't set pods for me. Oh, I forgot about Techny Spider. That one will set a few pods. Dip pod setters as follows:

Dallas Star
Golliwog
Unidentified Flying Object
Trahlyta (very pod fertile)
Tylwyth Teg
Lady Neva
Rosy Lights (very pod fertile)
Queen Mother Memorial
Pink Crickett
Orange Exotica
Gudrid
Jester's Collar
Rebekah's Gothic Spider
Nueva Nova
Sexy Sally
Brushed by Bluebirds
Erin Farmer
Orichid Forest (difficult but will set a few)
Curly Cinnamon Windmill
Starman's Quest (very pod fertile)
Magic of Oz (moderately pod fertile)
Never Never Land
Memories of Oz (will set a few pods)
Red Rueben Stevens
Lake Norman Spider
Black Plush ( very pod fertile)

I think these are it but if I think of any more I will edit this post.

Tet spiders/UFs - a lot of these are new for us this year and I was told sometimes spiders/UFs may need to settle in a year or 2 before they will set good.

Rolling Raven (will set a pod on just about every bloom)
Frog's Eye (very pod fertile)
Lavender Arrowhead (very pod fertile)
Buddy's Wild and Wonderful (very pod fertile)
Wild and Wonderful (very pod fertile)
Magnifcent Hummingbird (moderately this year, last year was better)
Grape Slush (moderately)
Til I Turn Purple (very pod fertile)
Debary Canary (easy pods)
Blushing Octopus (reluctant pod setter but will with persistance)
Wind Master (very pod fertile)
Laughing Skies (varies each year from very pod fertile to difficult)
Sylvie Blondeel (easy pod)


These tets I set on but wasn't using too much so don't know how fertile

I Luv Lucy
Bali Watercolors
Wild Wookie
Star Asterisk
Mint Octopus (set a few pods but used it for the show so I cut the scapes off)
Lamplighter's Circle

These I added because they set pods pretty good from what I've seen

Stringbean
Linguini
Winged Waterfall
Crazy Miss Daisy (sets like crazy)
Peacock Feathers
Crazy Crane
Crazy Arms
Narrow Path
Wild and Free


Dips I don't have many but added more for next season

Lillian's Woman's Touch ( I set pods on what I tried but I use it mainly for a show flower so I don't use it often)
Magic of Oz (very pod fertile)
Cricket Call (very pod fertile)
Marked by Lydia (very pod fertile)
Lillian's Vapor Trails (only tried to set a couple and DID, mainly used pollen)

TETS
I will post a photo of these two because I do not think they are widely distributed yet. I do not do a lot of tets but I have set seed on several of the above plus these two.
PAINTED RAINBOW George Terah 2012 I had this a year before it was registered and it set a seed almost every bloom

RED WIGGLER George Terah 2011 Another great pod setter.

Dips
MARKED BY LYDIA
RAINBOW SPANGELS
EMMA'S CURLS If your working with dips I highly recomend this flower, sets huge pods with lots of seed.

I think I need to move Lillian's Sweet Thang to Kim's dip bed to use. I have it in the show bed, but the blooms are never open for me to use in the show so she might as well use it. If I have some good blooms for the show then I'll just cut a scape off. I'm redoing the show bed anyway and a lot of the older clumps are going to the club for our sales in the spring.

I have a couple pots ( for a price ) if you want it in both places. You know if you move it to Kims area it will be blooming on show day with seed pods all over it.

I really don't know, I do know it does well in north Alabama. It's an evergreen and both parents are evergreen, the parents do well in the north. Emma's Green Giant is registered as a dormant.

New this year for me was Dragonfly Dawn, it set pods very well. It set pods so well that I ordered it again for this spring. I just looked it up and it is not registered as a UFO, but it sure looks like one to me.

I didn't have any luck setting pods on Mint Octopus, I grow it just because I like it so much. I do not have many UFO's but do like them a lot. I ordered Waves of Joy for this spring. I do not know if it is registered as a UFO but looks kinda like one.

I have noticed that some of the Trimmer's aren't registered in catagories you would think they would be like COUNTRY FRENCH and LAVENDER ECHOS from last year are registered as extra large when I would think they would be UFs. Jane's MICRO MAGIC is registered as a small and NOT a double (I was going to use it in our show but couldn't in the double section). There are other hybridizers that do the same like Bill Waldrop's VIRGIL'S SUSPENDERS is registered as an extra large even though on his website description he says it's a UF.

As far as Trimmers and others flowers, if they don't meet the specifications of ufs they will be registered as a large flower. I did a post on ufs not long ago if someone knows how to post a link to it and the AHS site has a really good section on ufs.

This is the pollen parent to Lillian's Vapor Trail and Lillian's White Lies. (Lillian's Thin Ice x Lavender Butterfly)
It's registered as a large flower, it's also very pod fertile and not well known.
