blue23rose said:I like collecting bee pollinated seeds and planting them just to see what they do. I don't do it anymore only because I don't have room to plant them. However, I did make a very few crosses this year and will try to fit them in somewhere.
Anyway, in 2013 I collected some daylily seeds that were bee pollinated. The only seedlings I have left are from 'Lady Neva'. I am pretty sure that the seeds I collected are a cross of 'Lady Neva' x 'Lady Neva' because it was one of the only daylilies blooming so late that year and because the plant habit and look of the seedlings are so much like 'Lady Neva'.
2021 - clumps of seedlings from 'Lady Neva'. I just planted them all together up against the fence. I recorded that there were 6 seeds, but I only see 3 distinctly different seedlings.
As you can see in the first picture below, one of the seedlings is terrible. That is actually what it looks like in the early morning! I have tied all of these scapes together and plan to dig them out. Even though the seedling blooms aren't as nice as the real 'Lady Neva', they aren't half bad. But they all do lean quite a bit, which is why I got rid of 'Lady Neva', which I sometimes regret.
