Wow! All those seedling blooms sure knocked my socks off! Seriously folks! Y'all have some amazing blooms! I am enjoying seeing every single one of them!

Betty - Thank you for posting the 2 photos of FLAMES OF BEAUTY X DR. CELIA STUMP. I often wonder how much the blooms can change from the very first bloom to blooms later or even a year later. That is way cool to see those teeth forming in the second photo! All of yours are beautiful. I have to agree with you about MALAYSIAN MARKETPLACE X DOYLE PIERCE. What a lovely soft bloom!

Jon - Nice rain drop photo of your newest seedling bloom!

Fred - I love your blooms! I look forward to photos from the The Mobile Daylily Show! Thumbs up

Lyle - Oh my!!!! How gorgeous those seedling blooms are!!! WOW! Love every one of them!

I've had a lot of seedlings blooming recently. Some have unknown parentage. I rarely meet a daylily that I don't like.

My last Dragonfly Dawn x Dragonfly Dawn seedling has finally produced it's first bloomed. It's another pastel colored bloom like it's very first sibling bloom from last year that was a pastel pink. (I am still waiting on that one to bloom for another season this year.)

Dragonfly Dawn x Dragonfly Dawn (CCC50). Stats 2 buds on a 12" scape with a 5" first bloom.:
Thumb of 2015-05-15/beckygardener/5d89df

Sabine Baur x unknown (from Mike). (CCC48) Stats 2 buds on a 6" scape with 4" blooms:
Thumb of 2015-05-15/beckygardener/635927

This is an unknown parentage. (CCC49) This bloom is so dark red it looks almost black. Stats 20 buds on a 22" scape with 5" blooms:
Thumb of 2015-05-15/beckygardener/065651

Another unknown parentage. (CCC43) 5 buds on a 17" scape with 5+" blooms:
Thumb of 2015-05-15/beckygardener/8509ca

And another unknown parentage. (CCC51) 2 buds on an 11" scape with a 4 1/2" bloom:
Thumb of 2015-05-16/beckygardener/ec042e

This is yet another unknown parentage. (061) This one bloomed for the first time last year. Back again just as attractive:
Thumb of 2015-05-16/beckygardener/da9448

Unknown parentage. (040):
Thumb of 2015-05-16/beckygardener/439dd0

This is one of my favorite UF forms. A repeat bloomer. (CCC08) Laughing Clown and Zanti Misfit:
Thumb of 2015-05-16/beckygardener/2d615f
A previous day's blooms. This one just keeps blooming it's beautiful head off:
Thumb of 2015-05-16/beckygardener/dcc4ab

More unknown parentage:
CCC22:
Thumb of 2015-05-16/beckygardener/bd8a78

CCC25:
Thumb of 2015-05-16/beckygardener/ce3678

CCC37. Supposed to be El Desperado x unknown. (From Mike) :
Thumb of 2015-05-16/beckygardener/5917fb

CCC41. Unknown parentage:
Thumb of 2015-05-16/beckygardener/f1867f

CCC44. Lavender Baby Blue x unknown. 6 buds on a 18' scape with 5" blooms:
Thumb of 2015-05-16/beckygardener/d57ccc

The garden frog has switched from red blooms to this bloom for it's overnight stay. (CCC46) Tranquil Waters x unknown. (Seed came from Mike.) 5 buds on a 16" scape with 5" ruffled blooms:
Thumb of 2015-05-16/beckygardener/6a1751

This is an unbloomed seedling I got from Rich on the LA. He sent me 2 different seedlings of the same cross. This is the second seedling. (ZZZ70) Hotter than the 4th of July x Rorschach Test. Only 2 buds on a 22" scape with a 6 1/2" bloom. The color on this one was quite vivid. It's sibling was really eye-catching, too. The only real negative about this cross is that it is a rust bucket. I am hoping I can breed some rust resistance into future children of this plant.
Thumb of 2015-05-16/beckygardener/b32760

This is how the bloom looked at the end of the day:
Thumb of 2015-05-16/beckygardener/381431

Quite a few others have been blooming too, but many of those look similar to it's parent Roses in the Snow. Some of those are blooming now for the second Spring.

This is a sight that makes me smile. Look at all the pods that were set on this particular daylily seedling. You can also see new scapes coming up on this same plant. (Stippled Statement x unknown (CCC11) which is 3 years old.) I assume that means it is "reblooming" ?

Ashton - I bought the paperclips from Walmart. They had 2 different color clip packages, so I bought both. I've gone through a lot of paper clips since April. LOL! I lost count of how many pods are now on scapes. There are quite a lot since I try to hand-pollinate any daylily blooming on any given day.

I can honestly say the particular daylily seedling above was (and will be again with rebloom) loaded with flowers. Seems to be showing rust resistance, too. And boy! It is an amazingly fertile plant. The only blooms that didn't produce pods were those I could not hand-pollinate due to weather. The pollen is viable too. I know some folks don't like the stippled coloring on the blooms, but I happen to really love that look. It is so different than most other daylily blooms. That was my favorite seedling last year and it is one of my top 5 favorites this year, too! Probably #1 again because of all the blooms and how fertile it is. Honestly, I like everything about this daylily! (Seed came from Sandi (seedsower).)

CCC11 - Stippled Statement x unknown. Previous bloom photo from a few weeks ago:

Thumb of 2015-05-16/beckygardener/3f3099

A row of blooms. Notice how nice the foliage looks! Definitely seems to have some rust resistance! Big Grin

Stippled Statement has lavender coloring, so the seedling posted above that I have is crossed with something that might have that dark pinkish coloring. I received another seed from Sandi that is Bird Talk x unknown. I believe the unknown pollen parent is Stippled Statement (she does have SS). I posted this photo earlier, but worth looking at the stippling in the bloom again. I really love the stippling effect! Lovey dubby Just my preference ....

Pam - Thank you! I am quite excited during years like this when I have a wide variety of seedlings from various seeds I've either hand-pollinated myself or obtained. I strive for variety in blooms as well as trying to establish some good rust resistant plants. Hybridizing is absolutely a thrill during years like this! I have some more seedlings that need to be transplanted that were started as seeds this past Winter. If I can get them in the ground pronto, I might be able to get some of them to bloom this year. (But next year for sure!) Those seedling have some interesting parents and lots of potential, too.

Pat - I love that first one above, too! Beautiful!!! Lovey dubby Lovey dubby I'd definitely be watching your seedling of "Dangerous Expectations" X "Velvet Throne" sibling #2. I think that one is going to produce some really lovely blooms with future flowers. Do post following blooms on that one as I would really like to see more. All of them are worth considering for further assessment!

Jon - Love your Dragonfly Dawn x Dragonfly Dawn seedling. I am not wasting a single bit of pollen from any of my DD seedlings. I am using the pollen to cross with many others because I love patterns on my blooms! Your Baby Blue Eyes seedling has some beautiful ruffling going on. And I really like your very last Annabelle's Blush X Unknown seedling. What a perfect bloom! Love the colors in that one, too!

Only 2 "new" ones today. Not as many seedlings blooming either. The early blooming wave is subsiding before the mid-season blooming begins. I have a ton of buds on many seedlings, just few blooms today. Still have quite a lot of seedlings that have not even produced a scape yet. I hope they are just late bloomers to show me their very first blooms ever. I would be delighted to have a number of late bloomers because that is the genes I am lacking currently. Very few late blooming daylilies. Most of my seedlings are early to mid season bloomers.

ZZZ69 - Shabby Chic x unknown. Stats are 2 buds on a 10" scape with 4" flower. This one is getting off to a slow start as it seemed to hang-up when opening. Might be the tight ruffling on the edges.

Thumb of 2015-05-17/beckygardener/71a857

CCC53 - Noonday Dreams x Purple Crowned Fairy. Stats 3 buds on a 20" scape with 5 1/2" bloom. We had a brief rain shower late last night so some of the blooms had droplets on them.

I just went over all the pictures in this thread again, and there are such beautiful blooms pictured here! I'm very impressed! I'm now totally into big green throats and patterns and you-all are doing incredible work!

Do you have a favorite among those sibs, Fred? It would be impossible for me to decide! Sooooo beautiful!

Fred - Those sibs are outstanding! What fun!!! I love the one in photo #3!

Only two new ones today.

CCC44 - Eagle's Gift x Spinefeld. This one really surprised me because I was expecting it to be a dark red or at least a darker color, not a pastel color like it turned out. Stats: 6 buds on a 25" scape with a 6" bloom. Some rust possible between a rating of 2 and 3.

CCC54:
