Anybody notice there are lots of new people on the LA. Can be frustrating, but it really makes me happy to know with so many people ageing out of daylilies, there are new ones coming in Hurray! . It appears spots and stripes are the big winners this year, I draw the line when I can by both parent plants for less than the cost of 4 seeds nodding D'Oh! I might have slipped on some seeds myslef but really Im just looking for sculpted or poly this year. None so far so I just have to keep looking Sighing! Whistling

Some of those striped daylilies are BEAUTIFUL! I've seen so many from Undefinable/Undefinable kids that makes me really excited I'll be able to afford some of those in 10-12 years =D

I noticed some fresh buyers aswell as sellers. There are bids over $50 for a double fan of Pink Stripes (original dip, not tet as far as I can tell)! D'oh! And the shipping on that looks also to be quite expensive.
Here is a single fan for $7 (although currently out of stock):

For $50 that would be about 7 fans.
Other vendors are comparable, I think Zoia got it for a bargain this year.

I didā€¦$13.50 for a single fan from GWild, and it was doing fine until thešŸ¤¬šŸ¤¬voles ate all the roots and killed it.
I did pick up a much more expensive Cherry Stripes from Rich Howard at CT Daylilies. Two fans, but he gave me half off as it was a smaller plant. He also said to let him know how it did, I think he would replace it if it fails. I haven't seen the voles since early summer though. Maybe they drowned.

I bit the proverbial bullet and bought Undefinable the plant. Got tired of spending lots of money on seeds. Last winter two bidders were going back and forth on Beautiful Edgings I believe it was, to the point where it was over one hundred dollars for a couple fans. I plan to stay off the LA Crossing Fingers! this fall/winter. I haven't planted any of the seeds that I bought the last few years. I plan to concentrate on what I have.

Just a reminder...the Daylilies forum is a discussion forum. Let's try to keep this thread a discussion about the Lily Auction, seeds or plants, and not turn it into personal advertising! Smiling

Well that was unnecessary. Those were great pictures and flowers. Its not like its a news flash you sell on the LA. Same with Steve. Whats going on here. I for one Im glad to know when people I buy from are going to list seeds, especially as more and more seeds hit the LA.

I was watching 12 auctions this weekend on seeds/plants. The cheapest seeds went for around $60 and that undefinable went for 336.99$. I'm moving my projection out to 13-15 years now D'Oh!

yea, the undefinable sdlgs are really the big winners, of course its two or three people doing 90 percent of the bidding on those, and 100 percent of the winning. The seeds I want are the one with a clown pants sdlg. Its already up to 200 tho so thats not happening. I have a feeling it wont be to many years that there is going to be a glut of them to pick from.

I agree, Steve and Ed's posts were fine there was no need to delete. Steve and I have been going back and forth this morning in tmail where I've explained that after the problems earlier this summer there is no outright advertising for sales in the forum. I'm going to quote parts of my own tmails with Steve...

"The complaints from members in posts, tmail and email were clear on the issue, they do not want simple posts and comments advertising sales and items for sale posted in the forum. Ed's post was ok, he was joining in the conversation. I think he took my comment a bit further than I wanted him to by deleting his post. I was just putting out a reminder. If I do it behind the scenes in tmail then others think it's ok to come in and advertise. A lot of folks read our forum but don't contribute or join in. With more and more sellers and hybridizers all competing for the same $ it's just a matter a time before others come into the forum to post only what they are selling, be it plants or seeds."

"Your post was fine as was Ed's, they were part of a conversation and that is how they came across. The humor definitely softens the ad effect and Ed's images were conversation points. I don't think anyone wants the fun back and forth chat to change, it's just the outright advertising we don't need or want in the forum. If what you've always done hasn't caused any problem then there's no reason to change. My post was simply a public reminder that there is a line for folks about coming into the forum to simply advertise sales."

"Yes, posting your own intro images or seedlings can be ad-y if done to promote personal businesses. Most folks are simply sharing and not directly trying to drum up their own sales. We all post images and comments about plants, hybridizers, etc., it's a part of daylilies, but there's a way to do it as chatting with friends rather than walking up to someone, telling them your website address, plant stats, prices and shipping policy. "

Thinking Maybe I could have explained a bit better in my post under Ed's. Apologies, to Ed and anyone else who may not have been in the forum earlier this year. I hope this explains a little better about what happened.

So far for seeds I have the LA and here (yay, Celeste), as my resource.
But I discovered somewhere unexpected recently. Apparently my seeds are on the way (I have a tracking#), if they arrive I will edit below and let you know where I got them (I am in no way affiliated with the seller, and not getting any kickbacks).
The reason I am excited is that on LA a recent cross of Sharyn Lianne (pod parent) was over $67 last I checked. Well above my paywall. This vendor has fixed prices for all their seeds including Sharyn Lianne ($11.99 for 5+, plus a slightly-pricey shipping of $9.99).

Are there any other secret websites people use to obtain daylily seeds from? Preferably that do not involve bidding. There are some on Etsy, but the ones I found look sketchy (they imply the seeds do 'come-true' for each cultivar), so I left those alone. And of-course on eBay they will sell you the magical seeds to grow rainbow-colored or brilliant-blue (aka Photoshopped) daylilies, from a certain country it is illegal to get seeds from.
Can anyone recommend other go-to websites to check out, for daylily seeds? Preferably a website you had a positive experience with, and are not affiliated with?

Got home and the seeds were waiting for me. 5+2bonus of what I wanted, and 7 of a bonus cross. Looks legit. So here is the source if anyone is interested. Not a very diverse collection, but some nice ones. I confirmed with the vendor that they are pre-cold-stratified:

Thanks. Thank You!
Might be worth joining Facebook, just for that.
Always thought that Facebook was run by the CIA or NSA to gather data on everyone (no, not really, the government is incompetent and would never have thought of that). People give away their lives for cheap these days. Amazon keeps bugging me to give them access to all my photos for......$10! My entire life for a $10 coupon, for them to sift through, I think not. Still, better than Facebook, they do not even give you a cheap coupon for access to your entire life! LOL. Rolling on the floor laughing
I can make a fake Facebook profile, I guess.
