This cross has been very slow to germinate. Planted 6 seeds, and two came up in 30 days, two in 60 days, and another one is just now coming up....planted 12/11/15.

A cross worth waiting for I think!

That is wonderful! Hurray! Hurray! Thank you for sharing your experience. I am now more hopeful than ever regarding some seeds that I have planted but not germinated yet. Both the above daylilies are gorgeous parents. Can't wait to see their offsprings.

Oooooohhhhh... Love it!!! I started planting my seeds about three weeks ago -- and a couple of your crosses were just about the first little seedlings to come up! If I remember correctly, I believe all 5 seeds of your NANA NANCE X TET RFK SDLG cross have germinated now, and I think I saw three little seedlings of your cross (RAMBUNCTIOUS ROSIE x ISABELLE ROSE) X PINEWOOD LILY PAD this morning when I looked them over. YEA!!! I just love it when the seedlings start popping up! Thumbs up

Definitely worth waiting for, I see a lot of green in your future Whistling

I've had more than my usual share of slowpokes this year.
