Now that most of us have gone from blooms to ripe pods, I was thinking that we could share the ones that we are most excited about.

15-68 (Bass Gibson x Soli Deo Gloria) x 15-69 (Tink seedling) I got 6 seeds from this cross.

Too many crosses to list but any crosses with Heman, Happy Happy, Lemon Fringed Pastel and Lillian's Vapor Trail I am excited about.

I keep trying to decide what crosses to plant this year. I will only have space for about 20 seedlings (when I make the raised bed) so I need to be choosy. But every time I decide more pods ripen & more possibilities come into play.

I think I'm most excited to see crosses I made with Spacecoast El Bandito and Lakes Midnight Beacon. I just don't know which ones I'm going to plant yet. Confused

We used our seedlings in our hybridizing program. We are evaluating several for introduction and want to see what they may be able to produce. This is our third consecutive year to produce thousands of seeds. We hope to start a few thousand seeds this year with many of the seedlings pictured as parents. They are crossed with other seedlings and our registered DL's. In two years we will see the results.

Terry - WOW! I wished I could see a bigger photo of some of those seedlings! Very, very nice! Looks like you have a number of seedlings definitely worthy of registering just based on flower beauty! Thumbs up

Thank you all for you kind comments. We really got into daylilies in 2011 by planting about 400 hundred seedlings after our experiment years of 2009-10, We have increased the number of seedlings each year and in 2015 we started 5-7 thousand new babies. While we have some nice seedlings that are also performing well, we do not get rapid increase on our plants. We probably need to do a better job of moving our evaluation plants to their own bed and taking special care to feed and water for increase. While we have 10-15 fans of several, we only have 4- 6 fans of some. All the plants pictured are 2011-2013. The next two bloom seasons should be something for us to look forward to. Ashton recently stated that he is ready for winter since that means we are closer to spring and the excitement of some really interesting crosses that will start blooming for the first time. Here are individual pictures and some stats on some of the seedlings.

I am curious Terry and I hope you don't mind me asking. Are all of your seedlings your own crosses or are some from seeds you purchased on the Lily Auction??

Most or all of these pictured were from the LA.
Starting next year, all will be our own crosses.
We haven't bought but a few crosses the past few years.

In 2011 we added lots of new plants do our first big year in hybridizing.
Ashton was out at the crack of dawn every morning making thousands of crosses.
Unfortunately on May 24th, the temp hit 97 degrees, that was the coolest day we had until mid September.
We had 63 days over 100 degrees.
In our garden, not one single daylily bloomed in July.
Almost every pod cooked off, the ones that didn't, had no good seed.
We were prepared to plant hundreds of seedlings that year.
So to save our year,we turned to the LA.

That's my story.

I have a bed where my mini blind tags got washed out and it is the main bed I planted from seeds I bought from you. There are plants from about 5 seed sellers and I lost so many after planting because it was my latest bed planted in the spring. I will say that there may be 1 trash seedling out of the 50 that survived. I planted over 150 in the bed so that was unusual to lose so many, but our weather can be hard on plants while trying to get them established.
I wish my tags would have stayed since I like to know the parents.
In comparison, I planted 500 seedlings in a bed this spring with our gulf coast or Florida spring weather this year, about 6 seedlings died.
In my above pictures, the second pic (pink UF) is unknown and I wonder if it could be a cross you made.

So hard to say Terry. That is disappointing when signs are lost. It has happened to me too. I have actually seen bluejays fly off with the blinds I used for signs so I don't use them anymore. I have been replacing my garden markers with the Kincaid stainless ones and I am now using the older markers for marking my seedlings. At least the wind won't blow them out of the ground. You have to put them deep though so the freeze and thaw cycles don't dislodge them.

Wow, with that kind of budding and branching, it sounds like a great parent! Nice coloring, too!

I still love this 'lamb's ear' one...I really am curious if most of the flowers have this form or if it was just the one in this picture.

This one look so cute to me. I keep looking back at this picture because, to me, it looks like it has an innocent but very surprised look...it just reminds me of a cartoon character who is wide-eyed with wonder or maybe even shock.

dark red and UF

I love this dark red UFO. (Dark red and dark purple crispate or curly daylilies really resonate with me.)


I look forward to seeing what you put out for intro in the upcoming years. Get those babies growing so all of the rest of us can have some! Hilarious!

So anyone feeling bad about $ spent at The Lily Auction should just take a peek at the creations of @kidfishing and I would say yes indeed.... Money very well spent. Look at all of those beauties!
