Jon - I like the coloring on your Trahlyta X ??? The orange is different than what I have been able to get from it!
Pam - Your Feeling Thorny sdlg should stabilize eventually. Look at all those teeth!!!! Wow!
Ashton - I can't wait to see your first seedling bloom! I, too, am trying to get a red with a pattern. Fingers crossed that you get a nice RED cross!
I got a few more seedlings today. This one has such a unique bloom color. I was quite taken with this bloom. This came from a LA seed win from Karen Michaels at Daredevil Daylilies. This is a cross of Heart Exhibit x Judy Jungle Cat (one of her new intros):
CCC31 - Stats 7" bloom, 14" scape, and only 3 buds. The fan is really small. Give it another year and I hope it gets much bigger with more scapes and blooms. It has a dormant parent, so I hope it survives here. I really love the color and the spider form! Rust rating right now is between a 2 and 3.
This next one is from Sandi ( @Seedsower
). CCC32 - Face the Stars x unknown. Stats are 5" bloom, 16" scape, and 5 buds.
It didn't open up right away early this morning, so I couldn't get a very good photo of it until late in the day. The color is faded by that time, but it opened up nicely and is a pretty bloom. Rust rating 2 or 3. :
I got some seeds from a seller several years ago on ebay. (no cross names.) Many of the seedlings are producing some really pretty red blooms. It's amazing to me all the different ways a deep red can look on a daylily bloom. I tried to get some close-ups of the diamond dusting on the thin, light yellow border, but couldn't capture that unique quality. It almost looks like gold dusting. Really neat looking. Looks like it is exhibiting molten liquid gold. I can't quite describe it correctly. I sure wished my camera had picked up how it looked.
CCC33 Stats: 6" bloom, 23" scape, and 7 buds. The downside of this one is the rust rating is between a 3 and 4. But I really liked the look and color of this one and used the pollen to dab around on other blooms. One never knows what you might be able to create by doing that!
