Hello, I was wondering if any of you would share pictures of your keeper seedlings, and perhaps comment why. This is my first year with seedling bloom, so its still to early to say that any of them are for sure keepers, although, there were about a half dozen I really liked, and a couple with good plant/scape traits, so a few probably will be, but I will wait another year before starting an evaluation bed. I have enjoyed looking at the seedling threads from the last two years, but I am sure many of you have seedlings from well before then, that you have decided to keep. I am anxious to see and hear about some of these.

Thanks,
Gale

My keepers from this year's blooms. Though I'm not planning to get rid of any at this time. All can serve a purpose in a hybridizing program, until room becomes very restricted! Whistling Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious!

Cindy- You have great looking keepers, I really like Brigade of Butterflies x Banned in Boston. I got Banned in Boston last year, and was looking forward to seeing it, and making some crosses with it, however, it did not bloom, hopefully next year.

Gale - I just reread your first post and realize that you were interested in seedlings that are 3 years old. Oops! Sorry, mine are current. I only have two that are 3 years old that I won't get rid of and they are:

Thumb of 2015-07-26/beckygardener/c1a58b Thumb of 2015-07-26/beckygardener/5ba3d2 Mama's Cherry Pie x Unknown

I love red blooms and these above typically bloom consistently that beautiful!

Looking at the original request, it was for photos (very nice so far) but also for reason why those seedlings were selected. What is it about the few special ones you grow that make it worth being a keeper.

This is another that first bloomed in 2012, has been everything I
want in a UF, great bloom, great branching and bud count, reblooms, fertile
both ways and an awesome parent. Will also be registered this fall.

Randy Stephens X Kentucky Woman
I have already sent in the registration form for this one.
Why I like this one so much...
Of course the teeth, this one is not as susceptible to thrips as the other toothies.
25 buds on a plant that I just moved.
It will have 35-40 buds on an established plant.

Look at the perfect scape, very thick too!

Really early with 25 buds on a small flower!
I really like this one because it reminds me of a great Tim Herrington daylily! Smiling
Thumb of 2015-07-27/kidfishing/eeae05

Aztec Headdress X Vivid Butterfly
Early, about 10 buds, but it did rebloom.
It's first bloom was very early June and its last bloom was yesterday!

Indian Giver X (Substantial Evedence X Baby Blue Eyes Sdlg)
15 buds, we really like the flower.

Absolutely gorgeous seedlings, everyone, thank you for taking the time to share them, and thanks for the comments, these will help me to know what a keeper looks like.

Thanks again,
